  3. I need some clarification... Do I join at the end of each round? On rows 4-7 how many DC's do I increase by? Is row 8, both 2 & 3?

  4. Just made this pattern and wanted to let you know that I did. I made a few alterations to it (longer sleeves, and crochet buttons for the back). I'm not sure if this is a pattern for a burial gown or just a regular dress of a newborn. I'm using it for my baby girl that's due in December, so I also added some simple crochet buttons to the back. Thank you so much for posting this pattern for everyone to use!!
