If you have a dog or cat in your home, then you already know what a wonderful friendship is. Today’s master class will help you quickly and easily make a colorful, bright and stylish sweater for your animal. Or a hat and a blanket. Or a toy, and maybe even all together.
After all, knitting for your little dogs is an unreal, incomparable pleasure!
We have chosen for you a scheme with a detailed description, thanks to which even for beginning knitters it is not difficult to tie up their first works and understand the principle of knitting clothes for small dogs. And then you can easily tie a pug jacket, or a small chihuahua blouse, and a vest for a poodle or a vest for a spitz dog.
Fringed vest for dogs, scheme
For knitting, we need the following materials:
- Beige yarn 50 grams.
- Brown yarn from wool 20 grams.
- Different needles number 2.5.
- Crochet hook or knitting needle.
E2 2 × 2 30 p. = Ten centimeters, front surface 25 loops = 10 centimeters, 40 rows = 10 centimeters.
We take the measurements from the dog and calculate the number of eyelets.
Girth of the neck – twenty-one centimeter 63 p. + 2 cr. n. = 65 n., rounded to 66 n., since their number must be a multiple of three; 1/3 girth – seven centimeters. (21 p. + 1 p. For a uniform gum 2 by 2 = 22 loops); 1/12 girth
1.8 cm x 2 = 3.6 cm (eleven eyelets – the width of our armholes at the beginning of work.
Chest circumference – 35 centimeters + 2 centimeters for free fit = 37 centimeters (111 eyelets); 1/2 girth (width of the back and abdomen) – 18.5 cm (fifty-six eyelets) The distance from withers to the center of the back is eleven centimeters.
Armhole height: the distance from the base of the neck to the end of the front foot + one centimeter = seven centimeters (28 rows)
Armhole depth: for small breeds of dogs two centimeters (six loops). 1/2 chest circumference – 1/3 neck circumference – armhole depth = eighteen centimeters – seven centimeters – four centimeters (2 cm for each armhole) = 7.5 cm (18 eyelets). Eighteen n: 2 = nine loops; It turns out that when knitting armholes, we must add nine loops from each edge of the abdomen and back.
To understand how many rows we need to add loops, we divide the distance from the base of the neck to the tip of the front foot + one cm by the number of loops to be added: seven cm = twenty-eight p .; Twenty-eight p.: 9 loops = 3 rows. It turns out, nakida should be done at the edges of every third row.
Back / belly description.
Beige thread hooked 66 loops. With a rubber band 2 by 2 we will tie a gate twelve centimeters high, making brown and terracotta yarn strips of the same width. Close the eleven loops, knit 22 faces (belly), close eleven paragraphs, knit 22 faces (back).
Let’s turn knitting up: we crochet or knit 22 purl loops (back), then we take the thread from the second ball and weave 22 purl (belly). You can start collecting the loops of one item on a pin and tie it all up later.
Next, we crochet the back and belly 28 rows of satin stitch, creating nakida along the edges of every third row (nine times). The volume of elements at the same time increases by eighteen p. The first and final three p. We knit garter stitch so that the edges do not wrap.
After that, along the edges of each element, we type seven. p. (armhole depth = 6 eyelets + 1 cr. p.). Now there are fifty-four paragraphs in each element (22 p. +18 p. + (2 by 7 p.), But 56 loops are needed (18.5 cm). We’ll add the missing two paragraphs when moving knitting from stitch to rubber 2 by 2, creating two crochets at regular intervals. With a 2-by-2 rubber band, we knit another four cm, creating colored stripes, like on a collar.
We sew sleeveless elements and using a crochet hook to make a fringe of dark brown or light yarn on the collar.
Knit such clothes by adding and reducing loops in certain places. What do we need to measure?
- Measure neck circumference.
- Chest circumference.
- Waist girth
- Leg girth.
- The distance from the "collar" to the paws of the pet.
Naturally, each small dog has its own personal size.
Calculate the loop. Yarn after all is different.
Dial loops on the spokes equal to the girth of the neck.
After the gate we divide knitting into three particles. It all depends on where the clasp will be. If on the stomach, then about 15 loops on the sides and all the remaining back.
The number of loops will depend on the density of the yarn (yarn).
Let us add in each second row one loop to the middle of the sidewalls.
Thus, we work to legs. Prior to the opening for our paws.
Next, three particles knit separately. Approximately eight cm at the center and ten cm at the sides.
Further, these three particles are knit and knit together. About three cm.
After that, we begin to reduce the loop in the center of the hole for the paws. Somewhere two paragraphs in every fourth row.
And so, until the end of the work. We have from neck to tail 35-36 centimeters turned out with a rubber band.
We make everything to your liking.
Tie rubberized stocking needles armhole, planochki.
You can create holes for the brushes after tying the collar and stretch the cord with the tassels, etc.
For girls, the tummy must be knitted until the end of the canvas; for boys, eight cm from the armholes are needed and the n is closed. All animals individually and must be measured. To sit well and comfortably!
Hood can be tied like a heel for a sock. Make a removable buttons or strings.
The principle of knitting sweaters and the basic scheme
These sweaters knit with a collar. Calculate the number of paragraphs for the gate. If it turns out high with a lapel, increase its length by four cm, so that after stitching things, the collar does not squeeze the neck. Also add loops for symmetry, for example, when stitching the edge of the collar, connected by a 1 in 1 elastic, one front and one back loop should join, otherwise the seam will be very noticeable.
So that the sweater can be worn over the collar while quietly fastening the leash, make a hole in the collar for the collar ring. To do this, when knitting the next-to-last row of the gate in a place where there is a middle of the back, close five loops in a row, and in the new row we will collect as many air ones. When the collar is completed, divide the knitting into 2 unequal particles: 1/3 p. – abdomen, 2/3 p. – back. They can be knitted together from two tangles or you can collect belly loops on our pin and tie it up later.
