Pattern Notes

1)      Before you start take a neckline circumference and a burst circumference measurement.

I started with 90 chains for neckline.

2)      This pattern is for girl size but you can changed to bigger size by making more or less chains of the foundation chain.

3)      A Ch 3 at beg of the row counts as dc throughout.

4)      Finish each round with sl st to 3rd chain from beginning.
