"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

At divide for front opening, the instructions say to Pat 52 and then do Pat to end of the row after the turn. Is that the check pattern?

Yes, I made that with any problem. I didn't find any mistake.

I like the idea of this pattern for the wee ones. It's like they are wearing an attached blanket to keep them nice and snuggly. The hood will keep their head warm or covered if its raining outside. I will be working up several of these darlings!
