I am in the process of doing this right now I'll join Smiley

Yay welcome! How many squares have you made and what colours?

Well I've almost finished one of the biggest squares. I'm using greens, yellows, white, maybe some black and a couple of balls of mini mochi rainbow. Stash busting really. I had a ton of yarn in the right weight. I'll try to post pics as soon as I'm able.

Sounds good; I'd love to see pics!

Here's what I did so far. I still looks like a mess, because I haven't woven in any ends yet, but all squares for the first section are done.

(my foot for size reference  Wink)

And the pile (just for fun):


Well, got some weaving to do.......

Thanks  Wink I joined all the squares for the 1st section, but (bad me, bad me) haven't woven in the ends yet. So now have to weave in only about a 100-ish of them  Roll Eyes

BennuBird, I like your motifs; have you made more already?

Looks great IdlersDesign! All those ends would drive me insane to try and do. hehe


   I've been crochet ADD again, I started a Christmas star throw from Coats & Clark, designed my own 6" square I call orbs in the dark for another afghan, an offset center granny also from C&C , and a granny for Project Linus. The Babette has gotten no attention at all this month. =( I should bring out my Babette tote bin and force myself to make some blocks today.

I have been crocheting for a few months now, mostly amigurumis. I have had no trouble reading patterns for those little critters, but for what ever reason I just cannot get the hang of a granny square. Is there a pattern any one could share that is suitable for beginners?

I love the look of this Babette blanket!  How is everyone doing with theirs?  I love the colorfulness and the different sized squares.  I have some orphan squares I would like to use.  I almost bought a bunch at the goodwill awhile ago, and now I wish I had...oh well.
