Crochet a hooded towel or a cozy baby blanket for the little ones. I chose a cotton yarn for the hooded towel; but if making a blanket, you can basically use any yarn you like.
There is no stitch pattern here, thus making it easy to adjust the size. I made mine extra long and wide to allow for a cozy wrap after the bath. Plus it’ll give the little ones lots of room to grow.
