Introduction: 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 http://www.leisurearts.com/all_skills/crochet/default.asp?display=detail&item_num=2614&sort=title&page=26&rec_num=255&from=BK&startRec=250

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

I only had boy babies, so never had the delight of having anything in pink! These are lovely.
