Christening a child is one of the most important events you will partake in if you and your family practice Christianity. With this Heavenly Shell Stitch Christening Blanket, you can celebrate this blessed event with a pure white shell stitch crochet pattern.

This particular crochet for baby also includes patterns for a matching sweater, booties, and hat (see the bottom of this post for the link to the pattern). This crochet christening set would make a beautiful and thoughtful gift or you can choose to make only the baby blanket for your little one.

Love the blanket but there is no instruction for the shell.........is it 2dc ch1 2dc..............thanks

Hello shanahan 2854729, yes, that is correct! We have added the shell instruction to the pattern. Our apologies for the inconvenience! -Editors of AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns

Thanks so much..............make blankets for the children's hospital.......this will be a nice addition.

Not being Catholic, I have never had a child Christened before, but this outfit is absolutely adorable. I love that it included options for a girl and a boy. This is a very elegant set and I would be proud to make it for any number of my friends who are Catholic if they ever needed an outfit for their child or grand child.
