This pattern is made with a zipper sewn up the back for ease in getting baby in and out.

Before 6-26-2014 there is an error in the pattern.
Row 8, under instructions for the body, it lists the stitch count is 87 for the largest size, it should be 83.
A notice was sent out to anyone who downloaded the pattern on Ravelry on 6-26-2014

5-2020 I added instructions for another size, 2 years
