This beautiful christening blanket baby crochet pattern is a timeless heirloom crochet project that will be treasured for years to come. The best part is that this is a fast crochet baby blanket for a baptism or blessing blanket.

Modern Heirloom Baby Blanket

I made this blanket in white yarn for a more traditional color for a christening blanket for my first grandbaby. However, an off-white, cream, or ivory yarn are also great choices for this gorgeous lacy crochet pattern. Really, any color combination works to match a nursery theme. 

This can be the perfect shower gift for a new one on the way too. Add this timeless crochet throw to your little one’s nursery or wrap around your precious newborn baby for snuggles.

A beautiful handmade baby blanket is a perfect gift for expecting parents.

Repeating Crochet Stitch

If you can crochet the single crochet and double crochet stitch, you can complete this pattern. The double crochet stitch adds a ton of personality while remaining delicate and beautiful.

Once you get started, the baby blanket uses a repeat of the crochet stitches in row three. If you want to create a beautiful blanket for a baby boy or baby girl for an upcoming baptism and don’t have a lot of time? This pattern is for you. A pretty and lacy baby afghan crochet pattern.

Finishing

Cut yarn and pull through the last ST leaving about a ten inch tail. I like to use a yarn needle to weave in the end going in a variety of directions back and forth until it feels a bit secure. Then I cut the excess yarn. Make sure to go back to the starting row yarn and weave that in too.
