The Babette blanket.
Such an amazing pattern.
I think it is seen in the crochet community as a crocheter's rite of passage.
I came across the pattern in a search for something completely different- not knowing of its renowned.
I fell for it immediately!
Went on a search for the perfect yarns.
And started crocheting.
It was my first big project.
What an initiation!!
Flickr has a group dedicated to the babette blanket! Over 1000 versions of THE babette.
I used a combo of Vanna's yarn and Simply Soft and I Love This Yarn... all easy, not-fancy purchases from Hobby Lobby or Michael's.
This pattern produces a thick, weighty, bucket-of-love blanket!
Love poured into
Time devoted to
Wrapping a loved one into an everyday work of art!
- have a blessed (and creative) day!!
