FRILLY PINK BURIAL GOWN PATTERN


FRILLY PINK BURIAL GOWN
BY: KATHY

3 TO 5 POUND (ABOUT 15 INCHES LONG FROM CENTER NECK TO BOTTOM.)

MATERIALS NEEDED:
BABY YARN
J HOOK ( SO SORRY I HAD A G HOOK INSTEAD OF A J HOOK. THE G HOOK IS FOR 1-3 POUND BABIES. I HAD TO COPY A PATTERN FOR MYSELF, THAT'S WHEN I NOTICED IT. AGAIN I'M SO SORRY.)
WHITE RIBBON

STITCHES USED:
CH - CHAIN
SL ST - SLIP STITCH
YO - YARN OVER
SC- SINGLE CROCHET
HDC - HALF DOUBLE CROCHET
DC - DOUBLE CROCHET
V-STITCH ( DC, CH1, DC IN SAME STITCH)

NO GAUGE IS NEEDED BECAUSE THIS PATTERN IS VERY FORGIVING. I LEAVE ALL MY GOWNS OPEN IN THE BACK SO THE ANGEL BABIES CAN BE EASILY DRESSED. IF YOU FIND ANY PROBLEMS LET ME KNOW BECAUSE THIS PATTERN HAS NOT BEEN TESTED AND I'M REALLY NOT THAT GREAT AT WRITING PATTERNS.
WITH PINK YARN
ROW 1 : CH 32, DC IN 3RD CH FROM HOOK. DC IN NEXT 3 CH'S. ( DC, CH 1, DC) IN NEXT CH. ( V-STITCH MADE) *DC IN NEXT 6 CH'S, V-STITCH IN NEXT CH.* REPEAT FROM * TO * 2 MORE TIMES. DC IN LAST 4 CH. CH 2 TURN.

WORK SC EVENLY DOWN OTHER SIDE. FINISH OFF ON LAST DC ROW.

SLEEVES:
ROW1: ATTACH WHITE YARN AT BOTTOM OF SLEEVE. CH1 SC IN SAME SP. * CH3 SC BETWEEN DC* REPEAT FROM * TO * AROUND.SL ST TO BEGINNING SC. CH1 (DON'T TURN)

ROW 2: SC IN CH1 SP. * CH3 SC IN CH1 SP. * REPEAT AROUND. SL ST TO BEGINNING SC.FINISH OFF.
WEAVE RIBBON AROUND 1ST ROW OF DC AROUND NECK AND LEAVE ENOUGH IN BACK TO TIE. THIS WILL ALSO HELP TIGHTEN UP THE NECK IF NEEDED.
WEAVE A PIECE OF RIBBON AROUND 1ST ROW OF RUFFLE ON EACH SLEEVE. TIE INTO A BOW.
I LIKE TO TIE 2 PIECES OF RIBBON( AND MAKE A BOW) ON EACH SIDE OF BOTTOM ROW OF DC. I ALSO PUT A BOW ON TOP RUFFLE.
