The snuggle blanket for this Elephant snuggle is a basic granny square. With double crochets. I’ve gotten the basics from Heather on little tin bird.

This basic granny square is made with clusters of 3 double crochet. The first cluster always starts with a chain 3, and follows up with 2 double crochet (The chain 3 acts as a double crochet).
Between every cluster there is a chain 1, except on the corners, in the corner there are 2 chains.

Continue making rounds with clusters until you reach 12 rounds
Make a last (13th) round with single crochets around the snuggle with 2 inc in the corners.
Finish off and work away the loose ends of the yarns at the back.
