Pattern Description:

This Christening set has been made to compliment the Candy shawl.

The set comprises of Jacket, Dress, Hat and Slippers.

The Jacket with its picot edge and bell shaped sleeves works well as an edge to edge jacket or can be fastened with white frogs, as this photo shows, or you could also use ribbon ties.

The dress is trimmed with Knit-in lace at the join between the skirt and the bodice. (This can be omitted and ribbon used as alternative if preferred) There are two lengths of dress and can be made with short or long sleeves. To finish the outfit I have added a roll brim hat.

I have made the long dress in plain white and trimmed it with ribbon roses. The short dress I have made with two contrast colours to show the versatility of the pattern. (Please see the photos below)

The slippers have been finished with small ribbon roses on the toes

About the designer

I love circular knitting but found that patterns for this are limited especially for shawls.

There was only one answer, to design them myself. This of course has not only become an obsession ...
