BABETTE BLANKET (CROCHET) - KPM
BABETTE BLANKET - DESIGNED BY KATHRYN MERRICK
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.
