From Knitting for BabyThese baby blocks captivate children of all ages.  For each one, you make six swatches, each using a different stitch pattern, then you sew the swatches together and stuff with a foam cube. ... If you want to scale down the project, consider making fewer blocks or using the same color for more than one side of each block.  Keep in mind that each ball of yarn will make about 15 to 16 swatches, and plan from there.
