The granny square is the classic crochet motif, and it is often one of the first things that a person masters when first learning how to crochet. The classic crochet granny square is made up of double crochet stitches that are crocheted in clusters of 3 and each cluster is separated by a chain of 2. The crochet granny square is worked in the round.
When I finished my Granny square blanket last year I still had a lot of experimental squares of different sizes and colours and was not even sure what to do with it. I posted a photo on Facebook to ask for ideas and they suggested a Babette blanket.
I have never heard of a babette blanket! I searched on the internet and found a lot of interesting facts and stories. They’re crocheted blankets based on granny squares in different sizes and colour combinations, which create a unique pattern and a very beautiful “mosaic effect”.
I love them because they remind me of Klimt paintings.
It was also 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.
