Can this be made with a J needle?

Using a J hook with DK will result in a blanket that is very loosely made and full of holes. You can do it, but I am not sure you will like it. You could change the yarn weight to worsted or aran and that would work with a J hook, but it would definitely result in a larger blanket.

I'm making one now with a J hook and worsted weight yarn and it's just right. There are some small holes but the 3dc's make a nice tight mesh
