Lacy Layette

I have always enjoyed making baby outfits and since I haven't made anything for a couple years, I felt like crocheting a baby layette. I have several patterns I have never tried, so I went into my file and found Leisure Arts booklet #2937 with this pattern on the cover.

I used Bernat Softee Baby yarn....soft but VERY splitty. Still it makes a nice set. I let my doll Emily model it for the photos. Although it's a 5 piece set, it's only a 3 pc. set in the booklet but I made booties to match.....I found a cute pattern and substituted the set pattern stitch for the original cuff.

I hope to offer this set for sale soon. It's a 0-3 mos. size. I am also working on a Christening Gown. I hope to sell that as well. It's made from thread and will take me some time to finish. But no hurry :)

Crochet, Away!

Hey, my name is Kim, I haven't commented on your blog before, but i have been following it for a while and I like this layette. Very pretty. I was wondering, have you ever used Herrshner's worsted weight yarn? Is it soft at all? I use a lot of worsted weight stuff, usually Caron Simply Soft or Red Heart Soft. Any suggestions on the Herrshner's? It is a lot cheaper than the other. Thanks!!
