The Blessed Christening Set Crochet Pattern, created by Maggie Weldon, lets you dress your new baby like an angel in a delicate gown, bonnet and booties. A coordinating afghan completes the set for a precious ensemble that will bring tears to your eyes. Maggie takes antique stitch patterns and adapts them for today's best crochet thread to create the detailed patterns in this set. Crocheting a christening set makes heirloom pieces that you can pass on for many generations. You won't regret making this sweet gown and accompaniments, and start the tradition of having a special gown for all the newborns in your family. Each piece in the set has matching lace features and delicate stitches for an overall complete, angelic appearance.

The antique crochet stitches and delicate features in the Blessed Christening Set Crochet Pattern make this pattern set an intermediate crochet level rating. Tackle this precious set with gusto and get it done before the baby arrives so you don't have to worry about having it completed on time. All pieces fit a newborn size, with plenty of length to give a flowing appearance. The coordinating afghan is approximately 31 inches square with matching lace edging.
