This pattern is very easy, and you’ll finish very quick. For anyone who knows how to crochet, those stitches are very easy, but sometimes it isn’t the right size. So, I hope this is helpful. I measured a newborn baby by myself, so it should be okay. This is the average size for a newborn baby. Follow me, I’m working on more sizes for babies.
