Do you mean baby blanket yarn? It's a super bulky yarn so it can be used for anything that uses that weight.

Sure you can use just about any yarn for just about any item. You'd want to try to match the weight of the yarn (fingering, worsted, bulky) in the pattern, but you can certainly make anything you want.

Baby yarn is usually just soft and machine washable with classically baby-appropriate colors.

I have been using it to make the Lion Brand Bunny Buddy Blanket and am extremely happy with it.
