Here are my two first prototypes of the Babette Blanket: a two round and a three round. I really want to use this idea to make a full king size bed spread so if you have any ideas on how to go about doing this - please feel free to share!
I googled the pattern and it is beautiful! My advice is to make a throw first - I know that's probably not what you want to hear, but that's what they always tell quilters, and I think it is a really good idea.P.S. My least favorite part of making crochet blankets is sewing all the squares together!
Beautiful work this, alongside other pretty artworks of your. Your kitties Stoli and Luxor are so pretty too :)
well, I guess I will but I'm already a yarn snob I HATE Red Heart.
I don't like Red Heart either - although it's good for things like cat blankets which are going to get snagged anyway. Crocheting is SO much work that it's worth it to use good yarn.
I agree with Mishkat completely - try a small one first. I also hate Red Heart, though again, Mishkat has a point, if it will get snagged anyway, use a less expensive yarn. I found a really great yarn lady on Etsy, I've purchased from her a few times with great results: It is TuuleandDye at http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5749865She has great yarns.Good luck with the blanket, I can't wait to see!
I think I'll do a small one first. I can't guarantee that it won't be snagged but I'll try my hardest. I'll check out that etsy shop - I'm one for totally using etsy sellers.
So, do you enjoy weaving in ends? 'Cause the Babette is going to have lots of 'em! :) That is what stops me from making many multicolor or multipiece projects...all those ends! Argh!
Oh, and I almost forgot...another very affordable acrylic yarn you could look at is Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn. They have alot of pretty colors to choose from, and I personally think it is the nicest, softest feeling WW acrylic out there!
thank you for that info! I looked at hobby lobby and I don't see that they sell online and there aren't any stores in maine. :(
