I like the pattern but it doen't say how many oz of yarn needed. I guess I will have to make a preemie one first and find out how much that one takes.

Here are instructions for a set of fleece blankets - super quick, inexpensive and very pretty.  It took me just a couple of hours to whip these babies up and I took my time. One yard of fleece will actually make 2 blankets -  one large blanket 36" x 36" and a smaller carseat blanket  22" x 36". This way you use up the entire yard - no waste.  With sharp scissors cut out the blankets and round the edges - I used a dinner plate to get perfectly round corners.  Next I threaded a needle - large eye - with a very long strand of yard and stitched the whole way around in a blanket stitch. I had to thread my needed twice - don't forget to knot the ends of the first piece of yarn to the second piece.  Using the blanket stitch as a base, I then crocheted an edge. Make sure to pre-wash the fabric before you start. This is a good project for using up left-over yarn - the edging requires very little yarn. One half of a skein is plenty for both blankets.  Use different color yarn and different edging styles to vary the blankets. They're a set, but they don't have to be exactly alike.     Good luck.
