Babette Blanket


Introduction: Babette Blanket

The first blanket I ever made was for my 5 year old daughter. I recently completed it, and my 6 year old son even sat with me and did his first few stitches! The pattern is Kathy Merrick's Babette Blanket.

I used 17 balls of Gong by OrnaghiFilati yarn, a G6/4mm hook by Susan Bates, and a Large-Eyed Blunt Needle for attaching the squares.

I absolutely adore the blanket. I loved choosing the colors, the varying square sizes prevented burn-out, and it feels like heaven. It was so enjoyable I'm now making one for my son!

    It looks great Keesha! In fact I am now determined once and for all to learn how to crochet so I can give this blanket a shot.

    That's beautiful! I love the variety of sizes and colors, and it's great to see your son helping. ;)

    Thank you canida! Now that I'm working on my son's, my daughter is trying to help! I'm so excited both of them are wanting to be involved and learn how to do this. Hard to believe I was barely older than they are when I learned!

    Hi Rebstrong--actually I'm being mean and not letting Meg have hers until her brother's is done. I don't want her rubbing it in that she has one already, etc. His will be done shortly though!

    So sweet and colorful! I'm sure it lights up her room and is her favorite "bankie" to cuddle with! Nice to know the kind of yarn you used, too! Great job!

    Keesha, I think you did an amazing job: the colours are beautiful. I've tried knitting a few times but never quite gotten the hang of it; but seeing what you've created has inspired me to make another attempt. :-)
