I am a novice at chrocheting.(sp?) Right now I am searching for a pattern for a Christening dress for my granddaughter Amelia. I want to use 'fingering' (light baby) yarn. She will be 9 months old at the time of the ceremony. If anyone has any ideas for me, I would be VERY grateful.

Hi celia. There are a lot of free patterns available on the internet for crochet. Just doing a Google search for... crochet free pattern christening ...returned 107,000 hits.

thanx Ginny. I've seen alot of them.....can't quite find the 'right' one. Alot of them use the crochet thread and not the yarn. I'm still researching.

Go to Stargazer's Crochet site and find pattern.
Also make sure you have plenty of paper and ink as she has over 1000 free patterns

I made this last month for our first grandbaby, she'll be here very soon. The gown is very simple and the edging is Pearl cotton. I made the matching blanket with 100% cashmere and it is soft as silk. There is a shop locally that orders the 100% Mongolian cashmere out of NYC.
I think I have the pattern around here if you are interested.

That is soooo beautiful!!! That's exactly what I was looking for. But....the Christening is this Sunday. Not enough time. Where did you find the pattern?
Thanx anyway! Enjoy your new grandbaby!

I'll check on the book, sorry I was so many days late. Am sure the christening will be lovely, enjoy.

haighr - wish I'd though of crocheting one for my granddaughter. My daughter and I sewed and sewing those tiny sleeves was NOT easy. (This was in December 2002) Your crocheted dress is gorgeous. Hope your GD has a safe arrival.

Beautiful craftsmanship!
I ended up buying her dress, but I did crochet the blanket and sweater.

i love to crochet. i often exchange thread for yarn, visa-versa, and experiment with different size hooks to achieve a different look. i Highly recommend Stargazer's site too! i would suggest trying a thread pattern and substituting the fingering yarn with a D or F hook. the result will be something like.... size 3 mos. will become a size 6 mos.... depending on the yarn, hook, and your personal style. i tend to crochet tightly. keep experimenting and checking your guage and you'll do fine! good luck! :)

hibiscus95 - I want to make a sacque in #10 thread. The pattern calls for the baby sport yarn, what would you suggest, large needle, but the thread is so fine? My crochet is generally the needle suggested gives me the right gauge every time.

The dress you made is beautiful. Did you ever find the pattern?

celcia, you can always use same pattern with baby yarn instead of crochet cotten. Just adjust gauge and needle. Ameilia is a cutie, I 'm sure anything that you make will look wonderful.

The pattern for the crocheted christening dress is in Leisure Arts, "Baby Layettes, Book 2". You can purchase the booklet online. The booklet cover shows a knitted layette, but also contains a pattern for the crocheted layette.

I love this christening gown and I would love the pattern for it. Is there anyway you could send it to me.I would really appreciate it very much, it is just what I have been looking for.

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

This is the christening gown that I made years ago.
I no longer have the pattern as I cannot find the book. I do recall that it was a Leisure Art pattern book.
