Little dog sweater
We knit a 1×1 rubber band on 5 needles.
– set of 5 spokes
-two knitting needles for double knitting
-three loop pins
To calculate the number of loops knit control sample, about 10×10 cm (more).
I got 2.5 loops in 1 cm. Then we measure the circumference of the chest of the dog behind the front legs, at my button. 35 cm. Further simple: 35x 2.5 = 87.5 loops. We round 88 loops, that is, 22 loops for one needle! We collect 88 loops for a needle (for convenience, we can take a long needle), in any way that you like.
and then we distribute into four knitting needles, since my sweater will be tied with a gum pattern, then one face, one purl and alternating until we knit all the loops.
and so with a rubber band we knit as many rows as centimeters fit in the dog between the front and rear legs (the length of the sweater is up to the sleeves).
My buttons. 20 cm
Next, we calculate the loops of the front sleeves. The distance from the front right to the front left through the back. at the button. 20 cm. And the distance between the front legs. 6 cm. In the loops it is 20 x 2.5 = 50 loops, and 6 x 2.5 = 15 loops. On the front sleeves remains
88. 50. 15 = 23 loops, so that the sleeves have the same number of loops, one loop, designed for the sleeves, "give" in favor of the back. And 1 loop designed for the distance between the sleeves (RMR), so that there are an even number of loops.
It turns out: back. 52 loops, sleeves 11 loops each (23. 1/2 = 11) and 14 loops between the sleeves on the chest. Here it is very attentive:
The 1st needle: we knit 7 loops (PMP) (half) and remove them on an auxiliary needle or a special pin for the loops, then knit 11 loops of the right sleeve and also remove them on an auxiliary needle or pin for loops, then knit 4 loops of the backrest, 2- I and the 3rd knitting needles: we knit 44 loops of the back 4th knitting needle: 4 loops of the back, then 11 loops of the left sleeve and remove them with an auxiliary needle or pin and end with 7 loops of PMP. They are neatly connected with the first knit loops RMR. We cut off the thread.
And now only knit backrest loop. For convenience, we knit them on two knitting needles with facial and purl rows according to the rules of such a mating, that is, we remove the first loop of the row, and knit the last loop with it.
We knit 8 rows (4th facial, 4th purl). We cut off the thread. We begin to knit loops PMP, the number of rows corresponds to the rows of the back.
We knit the ninth row in such a way, we knit 14 loops of the PMP, then type 11 air loops on the needle (loops of the right sleeve).
Next, we knit the backrest loops (52), again we collect 11 loops of the left sleeve and 7 loops of the PMP again we get 88 loops of the sweater. Knitting the next row neatly distributing the four needles. 22 loops each, starting with 8 loops PMP.
Knit before the neck.
As soon as the knitting has reached the beginning of the neck, we begin to reduce the loops, for this we knit two loops together at the end of the 1st and the beginning of the 2nd spoke, and also at the end of the 3rd and beginning of the 4th knitting needles three times through the row: do one row of subtraction, then we knit a series of unchanged, in the next we subtract, etc. When finished off, knit the collar of the sweater. There are two options: short to the base of the head, or long. two neck lengths. I knitted this time short, because the yarn is thick.
When all the rows of the collar are finished, close them. It’s time to go for the sleeves.
Each sleeve is knitted separately: we remove the loops from the auxiliary knitting needle or pin and insert a knitting needle into them, then dial the loops on the second needle from the side edge loops of the back, then on the 3rd from the top row of the hole for the sleeve 11 loops (corresponds to the bottom), then on the 4th again from the side edging (as much as happened on the second spoke). Next, knit the length of the sleeves, which you consider necessary. full length or 3/4 or very short in several rows. I advise you to write down the number of rows of sleeves, for knitting the second sleeve is useful. At the end all the rows close. Sweater ready.
