Love this pattern. Is there a way I can print from my cell phone? I don't see a print option. Thanks.

Is there a miscount. Seems row 1 is ending with 48 stitches. Your count doesn't add up.

Thanks! I did figure that out later as the chains must have been counted as stitches. This dress is adorable!
