Crochet Babette Blankets

Crochet Babette blankets, seems I have a new obsession or at least finally the name for it.

I mean how can you not swoon when you see this? I can’t imagine the time and effort that went into making an afghan like this.

What is the Babette blanket?

The Babette Blanketicon (link to pattern) was designed by Kathy Merrick and was published in Interweave’s Crochet Spring 2006 edition. The pattern description says:

Inspired by the work of designers Kaffe Fassett and Liza Prior Lucy, this blanket offers a journey in color for the crocheter. The modules are all based on the same motif pattern; they vary only in the number of rounds worked. Crocheted in superwash wool, this blanket is sure to become a modern heirloom.

I see many crocheters and admirers say blankets made from or inspired by this pattern are Klimt blankets or Klimt-inspired blankets.

How to crochet a Babette blanket

I’m officially adding a Babette Blanket to my crochet bucket list. I’m sure it’s going to take a lot of work. To be successful in making a Babette blanket, Babette-like blanket or just a similar patchwork afghan, it would take a little good planning and a lot of patience.

To make the Babette blanket, you can buy the original Babette blanket pattern by Kathy Merrick.  If you feel adventurous and want to make a “Crazy Patchwork – Klimt Blanket”, check out this post by The Adventures of the Gingerbread Lady, which is “a guide or a tutorial to creating a bigger and freer version with your own colours and in your own style”.

Either way, have fun!

    I agree this is an amazing blanket. I have not made one yet, but maybe one of these days…

    I love how is is not “perfectly” symmetrical, as far as the design. I personally find that very appealing. I would love to have one as my personal cozy-up, and no sharing with my kids!
