Quite a long time ago already I wanted to make blanket for Lauri. Specially after I saw so many gorgeous blankets pop out on the net. However, I did not have a suitable yarn.
Then from crochetville I found about this online shop. I trial ordered 3 colors of their worsted weight cotton yarn (6 pcs each). At that time I ordered these, I don’t have particular project in mind. I knew I want to make blanket with them, but did not have particular pattern in mind.
When I received the yarns, I started searching blanket pattern. Then I saw Babette blanket in Ravelry (there are 140 people made/making this in ravelry, by the way). WOW! Immediately I fell in love with it. But, it required 17 different colors, plus I don’t have the magazine (the pattern is Babette Blanket by Kathy Merrick in Interweave Crochet, Spring 2006 edition). What to do?
Then, I make this draft:
I made it simpler with only 3 different colors. When I wrote this entry, I already made all the squares and joined them together. Now, to crochet the edging and weave in all the ends. Hopefully next post I can manage to show you the FO. Yeahhhh!!!!
