Some of you probably recognized the crochet detail in my last post as none other than the Babette blanket, a pattern by Kathy Merrick.
Virginia made this blanket over the course of the last few months, using 17 different colors of Cascade 220.
The pattern is a clever adaptation of an amazing quilt (Jewel Squares) originally designed by Kaffe Fassett.

Lovely! And I’m happy to have found you guys back…I managed to lose you when you hopped urls. Looks like I’ve missed quite a lot!
wow! Love it – the colours are fantastic – particularly those autumnal rusts and reds.
Amazing! I LOVE the colors!
Great blanket – looks deliciously weighted and warm.
Love it! The colors are awesome.
What a beautiful blanket! I love it.
Hello Dan and Virginia,
I have a huge question/favor to ask regarding your beautiful Babette blanket. Would you be willing to share the colors you used in the blanket? I ask that favor of a couple of reasons:
1. As a mom of three kids and working full-time I don’t have the hours I’d need to spend at the Yarnery picking out colors.
2. I am very anal about symmetry and certain colors being next to each other.
To be honest with you this pattern is really out of my comfort zone (see above #2) but it is so beautiful I’d really like to give it a try and any help I could get with colors and where to use them would be greatly appreciated!
me ha encantado,la verdad todo hermoso,me gusta hacer cuadraditos,es lo mas facil,pero la cantidad de posibilidades es muy buena, y eso de que sean de distinto tamaño tambien,noelia montevideo uruguay
This i’m sure was as mind boggeling as it looks. What a piece of art. An heirloom to be treasured.
