Babette crochet afghan

I've always wanted to make a babette
afghan and decided this would be the
winter to start on it.
But first I looked
through my old craft books
to see some of the 70's versions
of the granny afghan.
This lovely example is from BHG
Crocheting and Knitting 1978

Photobucket

Not quite an afghan but still a
wonderful example of grannys
in this pillow from
McCall's Crochet Treasury 1977

Photobucket

Here is a link to some modern afghans
known as babettes.

It may take me a while to pick
out my colours and also decide
if I will follow the babette pattern or
just do my own thing.
But it is a project which I'm
really looking forward
to starting.

Thanks Bea, it is such a lovely afghan isn't it.

Let me see if I can email you some more information on it. :0)

And thank you again for posting your pattern for your cool fingerless mittens on your blog. I'm so in love with them and I'm going to tackle them this winter (those dpns are so scary to a beginner knitter).
cheers.... suki
