I have made this onesie and it is so adorable. The pattern was very easy to read and make! I finished it in about 2 days (with the holiday and all). I can't wait to make more!!

I made this onesie for a young mother at my church and she just loved it. I made matching booties and a hat to complete the outfit. This is the easiest onesie pattern I have tried so far! Thank you so much.

Beware! Printing this pattern will waste your paper, 11 pages-only 3 of them are for the pattern, the rest are comments and a long list of site links. Seriously, is this nesessary!

If you followed the "How to Print" instructions in the sidebar you wouldn't have had these problems.

I think there is an error on row 8. Is it really supposed to be
"row 8: Ch 1 turn, sc across to first ch1 sp, sc in space, skip to next sp, sc in space and each dc across to next sp, sc in sp, skip to next sp, sc in sp and each st across to end. (Armholes made.)"

According to the picture of the onesie, it looks like it is a row of dc, not sc. I just want to make sure that it's correct.

You could do it either way, it'll come out the same.
I do it both ways which is probably why the picture doesn't match the directions.
