Blouse raglan for a small dog. This warm and comfortable thing can be knitted without even having a great experience in knitting. Optionally, you can change the model, extending or shortening the sleeves, adding a colored textured thread, collar or hood.
Warm your dogs!
First we take the measurements from the dog.
1. Girth of the neck. It is necessary to tie a 10x10cm sample and see how many loops are 1 cm. Calculate how many loops you need and then dial that number of loops on the spokes. We knit gum 1×1, (1 front + 1 purl). Knit 3-4cm gum and also make a buttonhole loop.
We knit loops.
The width of the loop depends on the diameter of the buttons. Our products are very small, so it makes no sense to use big buttons. And for small ones, it’s enough in the middle of the strap, to knit 1-2 loops together, and after that, make 1-2 nakida.
So we reduce 1 or 2 loops.
And do nakid in the next row.
Next, we calculate and knit raglan.
After we have tied the desired length of the gum. we need to split the raglan loops.
As you remember, I had 42 loops in the very first row, after I had knitted additional loops from the broaches I had 54 loops on the needles. Now these 54 loops need to be divided into 7 parts: Plank, shelf, sleeve, back, sleeve, shelf, plank.
For slats, I calculated 4 loops. 1 loop goes to each raglan, only 4 loops at the beginning and end of the sleeves.
It turns out: 4 strap loops, 5 shelf hinges, 1 raglan loop, 8 sleeve loops, 1 raglan loop, 16 back loops, 1 raglan loop, 8 sleeve loops, 1 raglan loop, 5 shelf loops, and 4 slats.
Now we knit the product itself. But in each front row, we need before and after the raglan loop to add on the first loop nakidom. How to do nakid shown above. so knit to the length that we will need. How to determine how to knit. It is necessary to measure with a centimeter the distance from the neck (approximately from the point where the dog has a collar) before the start of the armpits.
That’s what we should have in the end (after about 5-6 rows, count the number of loops that you got on the back, we will need this number a little later).
After we knit the right number of rows to the armpits. we need to transfer the loops of the sleeves to an additional thread and remove them from the knitting needles, 2 raglan loops before and after the sleeves we knit the front one together
After the loops of the 2 sleeves were removed on an additional thread. We continue to knit straight web. Length to the end of the chest. This is especially true of those who have dogs. Because then we will need to knit another 2-3 cm with a rubber band so that the overalls fit the body of the dog and the boy when they go to the toilet not to wet it.
After we have tied the desired length of the elastic band, the slats and front loops can be closed. But in order for us to have an elastic and beautiful bottom, the last 2 rows need to be knit with a hollow rubber band. For all rows: 1 front (thread in front), 1 loop removed as purl (thread back).
Now we have to tie the sleeves.
Here we need stocking spokes. All 5 is not necessary to use, because the number of loops is small, then we can safely take only 4.
We uniformly distribute the loops of one sleeve into 3 needles, so that a hole does not form in the armpit, we will tie another 2-3 loops between the two needles.
We continue to knit in a circle to the length that you need for paws, and in every third row turn down the loop, but the bottom of the sleeve will be framed by an elastic, so do not make the sleeve too long.
So that the cuff is not too wide, you need to take the needles for 1-2 numbers thinner or just reduce the number of loops (if you reduce, reduce evenly). I took the knitting needles thinner.
The last 2 rows of cuffs we again knit with a hollow rubber band and then close all the loops.
The sleeve is ready.
It remains to sew buttons and decorate your product with an appliqué or just leave it like this. You can immediately knit some sort of pattern or multi-colored stripes, fantasize. And everything, your blouse is ready.
Good luck in creating new products for your pets!
