How to knit a jumpsuit for a newborn
The birth of a baby is a tremulous and exciting moment when moms, aunts and grandmothers are preparing a dowry - knitted booties, socks,, rugs, ..
A hand-made product is much more appreciated, because they contain the warmth of hands and the kindest wishes of a newborn. In this article, "Craftswoman" will teach you to knit a jumpsuit for a newborn with knitting needles. The model is designed for a child (3) 6 (9) 12 months.
We recommend threads from 100% wool 195 meters / 50 grams. We take the yarn (100) 150 (150) 200 grams of white, (100) 150 (150) 200 grams of light gray, knit with needles # 2 and 2.5 and, of course, buttons– (6 ) 6 (7) 7 pieces.
The size of the suit for the baby are:
On the girth of the chest (49) 53 (57) 61 cm
Total length - (52) 58 (64) 70 cm
The length of the pants - (18) 22 (26) 30 cm
Internal sleeve length - (12) 15 (18) 21 cm.
The overalls are connected by a usual elastic band 2 * 2 and a front smooth surface.
The density of knitting 31 loop the front surface of the needles No. 2.5 = 10 cm.
In our example, the colored stripes alternate in the following order: 4 rows of white thread, 2 rows of light gray thread, you can alternate the stripes in any order, as you like.The same applies to the color scheme.
We start knitting overalls for a newborn with knitting needles.
Begin to knit jumpsuit with the right leg. On the circular needles No. 2, dial (72) 80 (88) 96 loops with gray yarn, in a circular knit with a usual elastic band 2 * 2 11 rows. Now we change the knitting needles to No. 2.5 and continue to knit the face with a satin finish, alternating colors of the stripes. In the first row it is necessary to uniformly reduce the loops on the needle to (60) 66 (72) 78. It is necessary to make marks on both sides of the two middle loops on the inside (this is the first and last loop of the row).
Next, knit up to 9 rows. As soon as we tie nine rows, then in the next, tenth row we add one loop on both sides of each marked loop. As a result, you should add 4 loops on the spokes. Then just continue to add loops in each (10) 12 (14) 16 row in until you have 6 such increases and until the number of loops increases to (84) 90 (96) 102. We continue to knit further to the height of the leg (18 ) 22 (26) 30 cm. Remove the eyelets on the auxiliary needle and set aside knitting. Similarly, knit the second leg of the jumpsuit for the baby with knitting needles.
When the second leg is connected, we merge all the loops into circular needles No. 2.5 as follows: type 4 loops andwe knit the loops of the right leg, gain eight more loops and knit the loops of the left leg and get another 4 loops on the needles.
The total number of loops on your circular needles should be (184) 196 (208) 220 loops. Need to knit on these needles 6 rows.
In the next row in the middle of the front part, we close 2 loops and again make marks on the sides so that there are (45) 48 (51) 54 loops on the shelf and (92) 98 (104) 110 eyelets remain on the backrest. in the back rows. And after (10) 12 (16) 18 rows from the separation, we start decreasing on the sides: in the front row we knit the front loops until there are 3 loops until your mark, we knit 2 loops together with the face broach 1 loop as a front loop, knit 1 loop of the front loop and pull it through the removed loop), stitch let us have 2 face loops and 2 loops together with the face. In the same way, we will reduce the loops near the second mark - in the end, the number of loops on your knitting needles should be reduced by 4 loops. 154) 166 (178) 190 loops on your knitting needles.
Continue knitting directly to a height of (20) 21 (22) 23 cm,then close the loops for pro-dressing like this: in the front row we knit the front loops until there are 2 loops before the mark, close 4 loops and knit the front loops again, until 2 loops remain before your next mark, and close the 4 loops, continue with the loops knit to the end of the row.
Thus, on the overalls shelf for a newborn there should be (36) 39 (42) 45 loops and on the back (74) 80 (86) 92 loops. Put off the job and start to knit the sleeve of the jumpsuit.
We knit romper sleeves for children on circular needles No. 2 with a gray thread, typing (52) 56 (60) 64 eyelets in advance. First, we knit a pattern with a usual elastic band 2 * 2 11 rows, then we change the knitting needles by 2.5 and knit with the front satin stitch, not forgetting to alternate the colors of the threads for the striation of the overalls.
In the first row we reduce by one loop, this is applicable for all sizes of knitted overalls for the baby. We make notes on both sides of the two middle loops on the inside (the first and last loops of the row).
We knit (6) 4 (6) 4 rows and for the bevels of the sleeves we add on both sides of the marks one loop. Further, when knitting, we make similar additions in every fourth row, alternately in every 4th and 6th row, for a total of (63) 69 (75) 81 times.At the height of the sleeve of the overalls (12) 15 (18) 21 cm, we close the middle 2 loops on the inside, while looking to match the pattern of the strips on the sleeve and on the main part. Postpone knitting. At this point on your needles should be (59) 65 (71) 77 loops. By analogy, we knit the second sleeve.
Knitting overalls for children is nearing completion.
Now we are engaged in the design of the raglan. Let's retake all the pending loops on the circular needles No. 2.5, we should have (264) 288 (312) 336 eyelets. Next, we continue to knit with all the loops with straight and back rows, do not forget about the alternation of color strips. In order to make it more convenient for you, we will make marks at each junction of the parts and knit raglan bevels as follows: we knit the front loops in the front row until 3 loops remain before the mark, we knit 2 loops together with a face broach, 2 face loops, 2 loops together front *, then repeat from * to * around each mark. A total of 8 loops will decrease.
In this way, we reduce in every front row. When 9 (16) 18 (20) 22 rows are connected with reductions for the neckline cutout, at the beginning of each row we close (5,5,5,5,5,4) 6,6,5,5,54 (7,6 , 6,6,5,4) 8,7,6,6,5,4 loops.At the same time, we continue to knit the ranks, diminishing a total of (21) 23 (25) 27 times for raglan bevels. Close the remaining hinges on the neck.
Now finally we collect our knitting overalls for the newborn. We perform leg seams and armpit seams. On circular knitting needles No. 2 on the edge of the neckline with gray yarn we collect (118) 126 (134) 142 loops, knit one purl row with the purl loops, while evenly reducing the number of loops on the needles to (108) 112 (116) 120. We knit a regular elastic band with a pattern 2 * 2 11 rows in the following way: edge loop, 2 front loops, * 2 back loops, 2 front loops *, repeat from * to *, at the end of the row we knit an edge loop.
The right front plate for the boy is slightly different: on the edge of the right shelf we collect gray yarn on needles No. 2 with one loop from each row, while skipping every fifth row, the number of loops typed on the needles should be a multiple of 4+ 1 loop. We knit 11 rows with an elastic band 2 * 2, we start from a purl row, thus: * 2 face loops, 2 purl loops *, repeat from eight to eight and end with a hem loop. We close the loops according to the drawing and proceed to the left planochk (for the boy): The left plank knits symmetrically with the right plank, but pay attentionthat in the middle we will need to knit holes for the buttons in the number of (6) 6 (7) 7 holes. The lower opening for the button through 4 loops from the lower edge, the upper opening for the button of the overalls is at the level of the beginning of the neck bevel, the other loops are evenly distributed between them at will.
In order to make a buttonhole loop, we knit 2 loops together with a face loop, we make a nakid and knit 2 loops together with a face broach. We impose planochku on each other (left to right) and sew the bottom edge.
And for the jumpsuit for the girl, we knit the strap on the contrary. We sew cute buttons for children with a thematic storyline. For example, for a girl, buttons in the form of a flower, for a boy, buttons in the form of a typewriter.
