Introduction: Lion Brand Instructables Slideshow Shells Layette by Clauria4

Picture of Lion Brand Instructables Slideshow Shells Layette by Clauria4

This is a pink and white baby girl's shell stitch and double crochet layette. This set includes a blanket, sweater, bonnet and booties. Details include gross grain "bowtie" ribbons for the bonnet, anchored with 4 mm pearlized baby buttons and gross grain ribbon bow ties for the booties. The set is presented and stored in a beautiful, fabric lined, white wicker basket.

The pattern was taken from Leisure Arts "Lullaby Layettes" by Alice Hyche. I used TLC Baby yarn in Powder Pink and White. The pattern book can be found on the Leisure Arts website at

The pictures were taken outside in natural light. Thank you for looking and I hope you enjoy the show! Have a truly wonderful day! Christine

Beautiful work....just gorgeous! I am proud to say that I know this artist personally and she is as wonderful as a person as she is a crocheter.
