This beautiful short sleeve christening gown has lovely detailed panels, and matching hemline, threaded with very delicate satin ribbon. Would be suitable for a either baby girl or boy. This pattern would also look adorable as short dress which could be worn for that very special occassion. The pattern is relatively simple, although looks quite complicated, and would not take a great deal of time to knit up for your child's christening. Would definitely become an heriloom gown that could be passed on to generation after generation. Pattern includes dress, matching bonnet and shoes.
SIZE 3 to 9 months
Dress length 68cm, 263/4" or length desired
Bonnet 31cm, 121/4" approx
Shoes 7.5cm, 3" approx

One pair US 3mm (3.25mm) needles

I have been knitting and dabbling in various hobbies for as long as I can remember, and love experimenting with different types of yarn. My passion is for designing and knitting baby and childrens patterns - just love to create something new.
I am the designer, graphic artist / desktop publisher, (this is what I did as my day job) writer / editor and photographer of OGE Knitwear Designs.
My absolute ultimate would be to publish a few books, and also have my own brand of yarn, I adore Debbie Bliss yarn, especially Cashmerino, gives such great stitch definition.
I hope that I have produced some patterns that may inspire the young (and old) to knit !! Generally my patterns are for the beginner, I have tried to keep them simple, modern and practical, with a twist of individuality.
I hope you enjoy my designs, your feedback is most welcome!!
