Revamp of an Old Favourite

Sharing is caring!

Lacy baby christening blanket has been around for a very long time. In fact it one of my very first designs.

I had searched for a very long time for a pattern that was exactly what I wanted when my friend was having her first baby. I didn’t find what I wanted. I had just begun writing down my ideas and had published one or two patterns before I created this.

It is everything I wanted, substance and texture yet delicate and lacy at the same time. My friend was delighted. Since then it has been made countless times.

Aimed at a beginner level. The pattern features only basic stitches such as chains, doubles (trebles – UK) and single (double – UK) crochets. It also used the corner to corner method (C2C) and includes a full colour tutorial to help you master this wonderful technique. Find the pattern here

When I make this blanket there are 3 yarns I decide between. They are King Cole Cottonsoft (available here) Stylecraft Special DK (available here) and Stylecraft Special baby 4ply (available here). The final decision rests on what the customer wants. It is beautiful in all weights.

I also of course have my trusty crochet hook. I recently tried the Symphonie hooks. They look so pretty, I just had to get one to see what they were like to use.


They are very smooth textured and do not pull or snag. I can definitely see me adding to my collection now of these pretty hooks. They are available at LoveCrafts here.

The finished blanket size is up to you but I create a blanket approximately 70”x90”
The blanket can be adjusted to any size you wish and indeed any colour scheme as some of my testers have shown.

It has also undergone a recent spruce up to ensure the very best quality pattern for you.

The pattern is available in both UK and US terms and can be made using any weighted yarn with the correct corresponding hook.
