A quick and easy, adorable blanket for the little Maiden-to-Be in your Fairytale.

The name for this sweet blanket came to me when I was gazing at the long, winding cable up the center of the Moss stitches. It made me think of Rapunzel’s beautiful, long braid trailing down the side of her tall tower. But not your typical Disney- Rapunzel. I had the image of an old victorian era Princess with long, flowing hair and one loosely intertwined ribbon of locks gracefully falling down the side of a medieval tower. sigh

Parsilette is such a Princess. From a 17th Century French folklore that predates our beloved Brothers Grimm, “The Maiden in the Tower”.

Perhaps you could find a copy of this cherished classic to accompany your hand-knit blanket to give to the mother-to-be. What an adorable way to welcome a little Maiden into the world!

Super Bulky Chenille creates the perfect backdrop for the spirited Braid that trails down the center of the afghan.

This is and will forever be…a FREE pattern. It has not yet been tech-edited so do feel free to drop me a line via my email address or Ravelry to let me know of any errors you may stumble upon. :)
