Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern (Floating on Clouds Christening Blanket)

Crochet pattern for a soft and snuggly baby blanket / christening blanket / baptism blanket.

It is soft, ethereal, truly unique, and maybe even a little heavenly. I am very proud of this pattern and the lovely overlay design it utilizes. My friend, Christina, referred to it as having a 3-D effect, and I have to agree with her.

This crochet baby blanket will be a big hit at a special event like a christening or a baby shower. It is snuggly and warm and will be adored by the lucky baby who receives it.

This crochet baby blanket consists of 9 squares. Each square is made by working an overlay pattern in double crochet onto a double crochet grid. Despite its complex and unique look, this crochet technique is not a difficult one.

I think this crochet baby blanket lives up to its name: FLOATING ON CLOUDS CHRISTENING BLANKET!

Thank you for checking out my crochet pattern!

This blanket measures approximately 30” x 30”.

The baby blanket crochet pattern is suitable for an intermediate crocheter. It uses standard US English crochet terminology. It has been tested for clarity and accuracy by a professional crochet designer. In addition, it contains step-by-step how-to photos. I am confident this pattern will make for a happy crochet experience (and a very beautiful blanket).

I am available to answer questions, should you have any.

I absolutely love to crochet! My mother taught me how when I was five years old, and it occupied a lot of my childhood.

It was during my time living in Bulgaria, as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer, that I first began to dream about writing and publishing my own crochet patterns.

As the years passed, work became my main focus, but I continued to dream about becoming a crochet designer and I collected inspiration from the many different places I was working in and traveling to: Bulgaria, Boston, Germany, Canada, Ireland (to name a few).

It was the birth of my son, ultimately, that finally gave me the opportunity to realize my dream. When my son was a baby, I wrote and published two crochet books (Painted Jute Rugs, Annie’s Attic, 2010 & Elegant Beaded Bags, Leisure Arts, 2013).

When my son began school my focus shifted to selling patterns online. I have been having the absolute time of my life -- crocheting, imagining crochet, writing about crochet, and engaging with many amazing crochet-lovers in online communities!

Home is now Toronto in Canada.

Thanks for reading my profile. I hope you will find a design in my shop that inspires you (the way it did me) to stitch up something beautiful.
