Today I had a burst of crochet energy and started a new project.
The Babette Blanket.
It's an "oldie" from Interweave Crochet published in 2006. There are a lot of cool color combinations to look through on Ravelry if you need a dose of inspiration.
The pattern is available to download HERE. The squares themselves are basic grannies, but the pattern lays out the color combination for each square in a very organized and precise manner. Not to mention how to lay out all the different size squares once you have them complete.
The pattern was inspired by the work of Kaffe Fassett. I wasn't familiar with the person, so Googled him and found some really gorgeous works of art. As I was looking through his work, I found a fabric line in his name. I thought the colors in this were really cool and fun.

I didn't have all these colors, so am just using what I have on hand.
Not sure how it will turn out in the end, but it will be fun to watch it "morph".
Have a great weekend!
