The Yarn

I decided to use Dishie from KnitPicks/We Crochet. I wanted something soft but a little lighter in weight than the usual cotton yarns that are out there.

Not only will the Tiny But Mighty Bonding Square work for collecting mom’s scent while baby is growing stronger and stronger but when baby comes home you can use it as a washcloth.
