Intermediate. Baptismal Gown & Bonnet. Larger picture here. US size 6 needles. It does not state how much yarn is needed. I don't know how many ounces or anything else. Does any one know how to figure that out?? Edith

Sorry, I don't see a link to a picture.
Look for a similar pattern in books, on the Internet or on Ravelry and buy the amount listed there, plus a couple of extra balls for safety.

Does the pattern tell you what type of yarn to use, or give you a gauge? If not, I think I would use another pattern.

I am moving this to the Pattern Central forum since it's a question about patterns.

Can you link to the pattern? It would help us help you. The amount of yarn could vary widely depending on the yarn weight and pattern style.
