Crochet HookH/8 or 5 mm hook

Crochet GaugeMy double crochet “blocks” were consistently 5/8ths of an inch tall, but if you’re not concerned about sizing, you don’t have to worry about gauge. Your finished blanket may come out bigger or smaller than the measurements I gave if your blocks are a different size. If you crochet tightly, you may want to adjust your hook size.
