baby vestjes instructies hi everyone so I want to show you today how I make this baby jacket or a coat or a cardi code whatever you call it it has a hood with some bear ears some robach sleeves and it looks like this it has a little bit of a pattern on the bottom and on the sleeves and on the edges so it’s really easy to make and we pretty much use double crochets with some single crochets and a few slip stitches and we will be making it to the size that you want this is a free to six months size and I have a bigger one here this is for about a twelve month old baby so we will be completely relying on

measurements which I have for babies for up to twelve months old if you want to make it to make it for an older baby you will have to look for your own measurement which Google and Pinterest is full of I don’t think there is a problem to find those and or obviously if you have a baby or a child with you you can just measure it it’s even better so this is it I think it looks really cute and it was really really easy to make so I think we can get started on it now we’re gonna start with what we need so obviously we need some yarn I’m going
to use double knit or decay yarn which is 100% acrylic and it recommends me a four millimeter or an F size hook that I have so my main color will be mint and I will have some pink for the ears and whatever yeah and you’re using you don’t have to do this to use this yarn exactly because we will be doing it with measurements so it doesn’t matter whatever you like just make sure that your hook fits the yarn well and then we are going to need some sorry some buttons scissors a measuring tape is very important because this is this is what is going to get us through
this project so my measuring tape has centimeters on one side and inches on the other side whatever you use I use my measurements in centimeters this is what I’m used to but if you like inches and you use inches all the time you can find you can find the measurements in inches on Pinterest Google just it’s the Internet is full of it so whatever sorry so the measurements that we are gonna need so I have the sizes from 0 to 3 months 3 to 6 months 6 to 9 and 9 to 12 so the measurements that we are gonna need is the head measurement the chest measurement for
the finished cardigan the yoke height sleeve length upper arm and wrist these two are not as important it’s just I keep those just to check that my sleeve is not too small and then the hood height so these um these are approximate measurements that I use all the time and they seem to be just fine I always get a good size I think so if you want to use my measurements and you normally use inches and you’re not completely sure about the centimeters if you look on your tape measuring tape you know you you might have it like me like centimeters and inches on one side then
you can look up whatever let’s say 15 centimeters I find my 15 centimeters I turn it over and it is just under 6 inches you can do it this way or you can find your own measurements which as well you can find it in bigger sizes I have made this jacket much bigger I made it I think the biggest one I did it was for 6 year old and it worked out just fine and I completely relied on my measurements so this is what we need and I think we can get started now okay so we are going to start with the starting chain which will be individual for everybody it will depend on the size
that you are making and the hook size and the yarn that you are using so don’t worry about that I have it all counted out for you and you will see it in just a second but first of all we need to do that starting chain so we know which yoke to choose which will be in one second so I will be making a size six to nine months for baby six to nine months old so whichever size you are making just look up the head measurement so it’s that about thirty-eight centimeters four zero two three forty point five forty three centimeters and about forty five point
five if you’re making it bigger you can always measure the child’s head and do exactly the same as what I’m going to do now so once you decide on the size that you’re making I will be making six to nine months old bait for baby six to nine months old and the head measurement is 43 centimeters for me so what I’m gonna do is I’m going to make my starting chain about an inch and or an inch and a half which would be about three four centimeters shorter than the actual head measurement so I will be making my starting chain about thirty
nine forty centimeters long so if you would making this size you would be making your starting chain about thirty four thirty five centimeters this one would be about thirty six centimeters long and this one would be about 42 centimeters long so you’re gonna make a slipknot and we are going to start chaining and this is where we are going to need our measuring tape already so I know that my starting chain should be about what do they say thirty nine forty centimeters long I have my measuring tape and I’m just going to start chaining and I will
be counting and I need it to be an even number so one two three four five six seven eight and I will keep going until my starting chain I will be measuring it like this will be about 40 centimeters long so I have made my starting chain and if I measure I put my first chain at the very very beginning and I just pull it out just just slightly just to stretch it out a little bit and I have about thirty nine forty centimeters and it is sixty-four chains just get a little piece of paper and I’m just gonna write that down it might be a little bit easier sixty-four chains now what I’m
going to do is I have drawn yokes so this is it so whatever number you have now you’re gonna have to find which yoke will be for you so I have 64 chains so this one is for me you look for the closest number that you got because I have these yolks in every is a four chain difference in between each of them so let’s say if I would have got 66 chains which 64 and 68 I would have to decide if I want to go a little bit higher or a little bit lower which will not make a very big difference so I have this one I just have a good look and I’m
going to write down everything about this yoke so as you can see this is this is my one it has one chain for every corner I wrote it on the inside then it has nine chains for the front 12 Cheng’s for the sleeve or the shoulder part it has 18 for the back part of the yoke it has 12 for the other sleeve and 9 for the front and like I said four for the corners so as you can see all of these have the same the it only depends on the on the size that you are going to get which depends on your hook size and yarn and everything so find the closest one with the amount of chains like in
the pink you see the numbers in pink is the amount of chains I needed and then if you don’t have an exact number here you just add a couple two chains or you take two chains back so I have this one try to write down I hope you can see this well so I’m just gonna write down that my just gonna do a real quick drawing of this and I have nine for the front I have 12 for the side 18 for the back 12 and 9 and then one chain for each corner and this is me this is my yoke this is what I’m going to use to make to start my jacket or a cardigan whatever you call so I would suggest you
do exactly the same and then we can get started on it okay so once we know what we are what we are making which of these yokes were making so my one is this we are going to start and we start from this side we will be going this way around so I have 9 double crochets for the front so what we’re gonna do now whatever number you have we’re gonna add two more chains so one and two then we’re gonna find our chain number four so one two three and four and we will make a double crochet into the fourth chain like that we count the free change in
the front as one double crochet so I have one and two and I need nine so two three four five six seven eight and nine so this part is done I have my corner after that we will do in to the next chain we do a double crochet two chains one two and the double crochet into the same chain that we made the first double crochet in looks like a V stitch then I have my side or the shoulder part I have 12 double crochets for that so one two three four five six seven eight nine ten 11 and 12 so the shoulder part is finished now I have a corner before the back so we do exactly the same as we did
in the other corner into the next chain we do a double crochet two chains and a double crochet into the same chain that we did the previous stitch so it’s like a V stitch then I have my back I have 18 for my back so 1 2 3 4 5 and I will keep going and I will see when I have my 18 done done with my back part I have a corner again into the next chain we do a double crochet two chains and a double crochet into the same stitch then it is my sleeve part of the shoulder part which is 12 double crochets so 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 and 12 I have my last corner which is a double crochet
two chains and a double crochet into the same stitch and I should have nine left for the front part so one two three four five six seven eight and one more into my last chain nine so we don’t need this anymore once we’re done and this is how our Row one should look like about something like this and we will just keep going now we will keep building our yoke so what we are gonna do for the next rows until we have the whole yoke done is we are going to chain one in the beginning always so we’re gonna turn around and make one double crochet into each stitch until we get to
the corner so chain one and then we go back into the same stitch under the chain one and we don’t really need to count it anymore right this until we get to the corner and once we’re at the corner it’s exactly the same into the inside of this B we put a double crochet two chains and a double crochet in in there as well so this is how our corners are going to look like all the time and then we’re just gonna keep going and find the next stitch and just do double crochets until we are going to get to there to the next corner my last stitch before the corner and
then again into the hole a double crochet two chains and a double crochet and then once again find the next stitch and just do one double crochet all the way around until we’re gonna get to the very end now I will do this off camera and I will show you where our last stitch should go in the row too because it’s gonna be a little bit different because we have the chain of three here so I will do this and I will meet you here and I will show you where the last stitch goes I am at my last stitch which is a chain three here that we didn’t
left in the very beginning this is a very very first stitch and I yarn over and we’re gonna do a double crochet into the very top chain here like this so it looks nice and straight now we’re gonna chain one we’re gonna turn around and do exactly the same for as many rows as we need just double crochets once you get to the corner it’s a double crochet two chains in a double crochet we just need to build the height and the length for our yoke so it looks a bit like this now and we just keep going back and forward until our yoke gets bigger and once I
make my yoke I will show you what we’re looking for to know when we have enough now I just want to make sure that you that you can see this is the very last stitch for us now this is this is left from what we do that chain one in the beginning so this is our last stitch just to make sure that you know that and we’re gonna keep going and our edges should be nice and straight and I will see you in a bit once I’m finished with this yoke okay so my yoke is done or almost done and how do we know that we are going to measure it so if you put it together
nicely corner to corner like that and we take out our measurements and we’ll look for the yoke height so as I am making a six to nine month size it is about eleven point five centimeters it can be a little bit bigger but not smaller otherwise it will be very close to their armpit the armhole and it will not be comfortable for the baby so well whatever whichever size you are making just look up the yoke height so I’m looking for eleven point five centimeters take my measuring tape and I measure wrong side so you can either put it like this corner to corner and about
11 centimeters or you can put it straight up straight up from the corner and it works out exactly the same 11 centimeters which is a little bit short but it’s okay because the next row that we are going to do is going to add the length of a double crochet to the yolk ID so I’m actually gonna end up with about 12 centimeters which is just fine for me so remember like this or like this and it should be just a tiny little bit smaller than what you are looking for then the next thing we’re gonna have a look at is our chest measurement it’s
just so we know that if we need to add any chains in the next row under the arm holes so I am looking at the chest measurement which is about 50 centimeters all the way around the cardigan and I’m going to find my back as it is only a half of a cardigan I will be looking for about 25 centimeters and I put it from 102 another one and I am at 24 and I need 25 for it for one I want to make so I am about one centimeter short so what I’m gonna do as it is very little 1 centimeter is about 2 stitches for me see even two stitches are a bit even a bit more I am going to put only one
chain when I will be connecting the cardigan other arm holes I am only going to put one chain here and one chain on the other side just because I’m I’m a tiny little bit short now if you are more if you need more you can put two three four chains under here which will add to your cardigan chest measurement so I’m only going to put one as I’m just a little bit short and by the way have in mind that we are going to have a big big edge around in the front so that will give us a bit more space as well so once we’re happy with everything we just
chain one which I already did turn around and I’m just gonna do double crochets all the way until we get to the first corner so this is my last stitch before the corner I put a double crochet just one of them in here I do my chain one now remember if you need more chains you should do more but I’m only one centimeter short so I’m only going to do one chain I find my other corner make sure it’s not twisted like that I yearn over and I just make a double crochet in there like that and I’m gonna keep going now with one double crochet
and each stitch until I get to the other corner and I’m going to do exactly the same I am at my next corner I’m gonna do exactly the same one double crochet into the hole I make one chain and I am going to do a double crochet into the next corner straightaway and this is see this is the sleep part and I’m just gonna do the double crochets until I get to the end and I’m gonna chain one turn around and from this time on we will only keep doing rows from forward and back no increases no decreases we just need to make sure that we actually have the
length that we are looking for for the chest measurement just in case because it’s always a good idea to measure a couple of times throughout the whole process just to make sure that we we have the size that we are looking for like this I’m just gonna lay it flat and I’m gonna measure the whole thing if I have my 50 centimetres so you know oops sorry so as you see it is exactly 50 plus I have in mind that I’m going to have an edge in the front which will add a tiny little bit more if you look just like that it’s a bit hard to show but it’s
just about 50 centimetres so I will be able to keep going and now you see that this row has I added us a little bit more length for the yoke which I’m now which is now perfect so we keep going back and forward exactly the same chain 1 turn around until we get almost all length of our carded now about the length I normally look up the sleeve length which is about 17.5 centimeters for me and I make the whole cardigan a tiny little bit shorter so as my sleeve length is about 17.5 centimeters I will make my cardigan 16 centimeters long and that is counting from my armhole so I
will do another 16 centimeters but we are going to put in two rows of cross stitch and two rows of single crochets maybe three rows or single crochets so we have to have in mind that we have to leave a tiny little bit of space about three rows worth of space in the bottom just do that those four or five rows so I will do about 13 centimetres and then I will leave the rest free for the cross stitch and the single crochets so I’m do this now and I will come back and we will see what to do next okay so I have finished almost the whole length remember we still have some cross
stitches to do and I was looking for about thirteen centimeters and I measure from the bottom of that armhole just lay it out nicely and I have about thirteen centimeters as I want it to so now we can start on the cross stitch it doesn’t matter which side you’re on what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna do a chain one which I already done turn around and our first we do a double crochet into the same into the same space as a chain one and now we’re gonna start crossing the stitches which will make our cross stitch so we aren’t over we skip one we
put a double crochet into the next one like that see now we’re gonna yarn over go back into that station that we have missed we’re gonna go in through in through the middle of the two stitches they’re gonna catch that stitch that we have left gonna yarn over pull out we have three loops yarn over pull through two and yarn over pull through two we have a cross then we’re gonna yarn over we are gonna skip one and double crochet into the next one yarn over go back into that hole that we have missed find that stitch put your hook in on the other
side pull the yarn through two loops and two loops yarn over skip one and the double crochet yarn over into the middle find that stitch and make a double crochet skip one and we will keep doing that for the whole for the whole of this row it will get easier if you have never made cross stitches before you just need to get the feel of it and it makes a real nice row just like that when I keep going until we get to the very very end I am at the end of this row and I have three stitches left so one two and three you might have only two left it will depend if you had even or an odd
number of the stitches in total it doesn’t matter just if you have two left just make the first double crochet into the last just cross it it will make no big difference but I’m gonna do it here because I have free if you have to just do it under the last one like this and then a double crochet if you had two stitches left you should do the double crochet into the same stitch as the first of the stitches that you made for the cross it won’t make a big difference so and this is how this row looks like on the other side and from this side now
the next row is a single crochet row we’re going to chain one and turn around okay and now we’re going to just single crochet all the way to the other side so single crochet into the very first stitch and just worn into each of the stitches all the way cross just like that and just keep going okay so at the end of the single crochet row just gonna do last my last single crochet here I’m gonna chain one and I turn around and I’m gonna do another row of cross stitches the yarn over make a double crochet into the same stitch as my chin
one and I’m gonna start oops crossing the stitches again just like we did before excuse me like that exactly like we did before and we’re gonna have a single crochet row just like the one before and I’m gonna meet you after them so I’m gonna make a cross stitch and then a single crochet row and I’m gonna meet you after and I will see if I need another row of single crochets if I want to have two rows at the very very bottom okay so I made my two rows of cross stitch and two rows of single crochet it now I don’t think I need
another row of single crochets if you feel like you do you can just do that it will keep the corners down if any of your corners are kind of a rolling up a little bit but my corners are fine and I have the length that I was looking for so about 16 centimeters just maybe 16 and a half so I don’t feel like I need to put another row and what I can do now is I am going to chain one which I already did I’m gonna cut my yarn I’m just gonna pull it out like that so this is about how it looks like so I think that that’s a nice little touch okay next thing we
are going to start on the hood now we can look up our hood height now remember these are approximate ones this I couldn’t really find a chart but that would say the hood height should be that much or that much I had to go look in everywhere so I kind of I found these I’m not sure how accurate accurate they are but they do seem to be fine if you have a child with you I would say just measure from one relaxed shoulder all the way around the head to the other shoulder and see how many centimeters or inches you have and then divide it into two and you will have the height of the
hood and maybe add another I don’t know an inch or two centimeters or something just for some to have some extra space in in the hood but I’m gonna use my ones because I have nobody to measure so I have about twenty 1.5 centimeters into into the height so I’m gonna start here and I’m just gonna go all the way up until it measures twenty one twenty one point five centimeters okay so to start on the hood what we’re gonna do I’m gonna make a slipknot and I’m gonna start on that side you see I still have my yarn this is what I started I’m gonna
start on the other side so I’m just gonna find that very first stitch it’s actually chain free that I had I’m gonna insert my hook catch my yeah oops and pull it out and I’m gonna chain two now for the hood we will be chaining two in the beginning exactly the same as we did here but we did chain one and then double crochet into the same stitch where on the hood we’re gonna do chain two and double crochet into the same stitch it’s just so that our hood would would not be would have a bit more elasticity I hope you can understand
what I mean so I did my chain two and now I’m just gonna do a double crochet into each stitch all the way to the other side not even gonna count that and when I get to my corners which will be just in a second so yes by the way I am using the top of the chains that are that I used so that there’s no stitches here so this is what’s left from the chains that I’m making this row in so as you can see this is the stitch where my corners are so I’m gonna get to that now I want the hood to be quite big and I don’t know
oversized so I’m gonna put two double crochets into each corner if you feel that your top of this cardigan is big enough and you don’t need to to put those that extra stitch in there just don’t it won’t make a huge difference but I don’t know I mean I just do it so one double crochet into each stitch when I get to the next corner I’m gonna put two double crochets into that try to be a bit hard to find those chains from the previous from the very first row they are they’re almost at the next corner and I’m gonna do exactly this you
know like I said if you don’t feel that you need them the extra stitch in there just don’t sew and I’m gonna keep going now until I get to the very very end of it which is right here okay so Row one of the hood is done and I’m gonna chain two one and two and I’m gonna turn around and I am going to do a double crochet into the same stitch and I’m gonna keep going and now just remember if you look back you see this is your last stitch here this is the chain two and over that this is your so this this is where our last stitch is
gonna go if it’s easier for you just count a couple of rows and I’m sure you’ll be able to figure out when where the last stitches but it’s I don’t think it’s that hard to find so and now all we’re gonna do is crochet back and forward until it measures what we are looking for so we will measure the hood from this row that we have made here so I have just about one and a half centimeters and I’m gonna crochet until it is about that long it always looks very very long the hood but that’s the way it is so I’m gonna
keep going and I’m gonna meet you here at the top and we will see ah what we’re gonna do next okay so after we finish the hood so I have made let’s see I was going to me I made it about 22 centimeters I just measured from the row that I started the hood on about 22 centimeters which is a little bit tiny little bit bigger than I was going for I was going to make 21 21 and a half but I’ll rather make it a little bit bigger than too small so after that what are we gonna do we’re gonna chain one after the last stitch and we’re gonna cut the yarn
then leave a long tail so we could so they’re put together and we’re just going to pull the hook out like that and we are ready to sew almost ready we have to pick which side of the cardigan like you want this to be on the inside or if you have a favorite side so I picked this one I don’t know why I just thought it looked a little bit nicer maybe I’m not sure it doesn’t really there’s not a big difference in them so anyway once you pick which side you want to be on the outside the one that you want to see you lay down flat so you can
see the armholes are on the top the hood is down I’m gonna take their tail and the needle and we’re going to sew it together so if you take so remember your sleeves are up up looking at you take both corners and pull toward you and this is how we’re gonna sew it so I’m gonna find the first stitch and we’re just gonna do a whip stitch I believe that’s what it’s called just not too tight but not too loose as well try not to skip any of the stitches so you don’t have a hole on the top through all loops like that
and that way we keep going until we get to the very very end so once we get to the very end of it we are going to make a little knot I just go back find that loop I’m gonna put the needle in through it and just pull tight on it then I’m gonna just thread that yarn back oh sorry front and back just so it does not come out for me like that I’m gonna go backwards again now and I cut the yarn what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna pull the hood out the right way and this is about how it should look like at the moment it’s gonna be a rollback good
like that see I already have one sleeve made so this is it and we can start on our edging for the front so like that so we’re gonna start the edge on the side under your left hand in the bottom corner so grab some yarn make a slipknot find that corner and the very very very last stitch or the very very corner connect your yarn make a chain and make a single crochet back into the same stitch so single crochet and this row will only be single crochets all the way around to the to the very bottom of the other side so try to space them out evenly I’m gonna make
so this is a double crochet here I’m gonna make two single crochets into it one at the bottom and one on the kind of a upper side of that you kind of need to watch out for them so so you would not be putting them too close or too far away so it’s not pulling on the cardigan or it’s not so or if you put too many it will start doing serpentines or you will see so too then one then it’s because we don’t have stitches here it’s kind of I have to go on your gut feeling were to put them just try to space them out nicely that
it’s my yarn tail just like that we’re gonna go all the way around our jacket so I’m gonna have to keep going so if you put it like this you’re gonna start it here you can always look if you put it down and the corners are not going up I think you’re doing well because if the corner is starting to pull on itself like this then it’s probably you’re doing your spaces are a bit too big in between every single crochet but anyway now we’re gonna go all the way up I’m gonna crochet over the water over the
edge of the hood and go all the way down to this corner and I’m going to meet you here and we’re gonna do the second row of the edging okay so I’m at the bottom of the other side I’m just gonna make my last single crochet I’m gonna chain one and now I probably forgot to say that we will probably need well we would we do need a few stitches I will need five of them so what we’re gonna do now is we’re gonna roll back the hood a little bit and we’re gonna mark about the place where we want the first of our buttons
to be so I probably want my first to be so I look where the hood comes together so I want my first button to be about right here and I’m gonna go two stitches up from what I want my button to be so one and two and I’m gonna mark that because that’s where my cross stitches are going to end you’ll understand everything in a moment so now I’m gonna look it up on the other side so this is the stitch on that side and we go two stitches up so because we’re going to do double crochets up all the way up to this marker and then we’re
gonna do a bit more of a cross stitch all the way around we’re gonna come back to this side to this stitch marker we’re gonna start doing double crochets again and then the buttonholes so I have one button I want to have one on the bottom probably about here and I’m just gonna find another place where I want my third button to be so about here I’m just gonna turn the camera off now and I’m gonna count if I have the same distance stitch wise in between my markers where my buttonholes are going to be okay so I fixed up the distance in between my
buttonholes it’s about I think nine stitches in between them obviously if you want more to put in more buttonholes you can I only want free so after this we can get started on the second row of edging so we made chain one we’re going to turn around and we’re gonna do double crochets until we get to that to the our first stitch marker so just normal double crochets as we did most of the cardigan just like that until we get to the first stitch marker okay so I am at my stitch marker I’m gonna take it out and I’m gonna do a
double crochet into that stitch where the stitch marker was and now I’m gonna start doing cross stitch so I’m gonna start crossing those double crochets it’s like we did on the bottom just to give it a bit more well it look it will look a bit more interesting so I have a knot in my yarn so just like that crossing the stitches as we did before will go all the way around until we get to our next stitch marker just like that okay I’m just just about at my stitch marker and I have two stitches left before that you might have one it will all depend how many if you
had an even number or an odd number for the hood it doesn’t matter you can just move the stitch marker up or down it won’t you won’t be able to see it but I seem to get that perfectly so I’m just gonna do my last cross stitch I’m gonna take my stitch marker out that stitch marker marked that I’m gonna start doing my double crochets I’m done with my cross stitch and I get my stitch marker now which marks my buttonhole so what I’m gonna do I’m gonna take it out I’m gonna do it chain one and I’m gonna skip
that stitch that it has been marked and this is going to be my buttonhole I’m gonna do a double crochets all the way to the to my next buttonhole or this stitch marker exactly the same I’m gonna take my stitch marker out I’m gonna do a chain one I’m gonna skip that stitch and I’m gonna do double crochets to the next stitch marker oops like that it’s my stitch market take it out chain one skip one stitch and I’m gonna do double crochets to the very end now the last row of our edge is chain one turn around and we’re just gonna do
single crochets all the way around to the other side just normal single crochets into every stitch like that once you get to the chain that we made for the buttonhole just do a single crochet into that hole and then just keep going so what I’m gonna do now is I’m going to go all the way around the edge to the bottom of this side and I’m gonna then decide if I want to to stop there chain one and cut my yarn or if I want to put another row of single crochets all the way around just to make these parts a little bit nicer I probably will but I’m gonna meet you
here and then I will show you what I’m gonna do I haven’t decided that yet okay some I am at the very bottom of my other side on the single crochet row and I’m gonna do my last single crochet and now if you are not going to do another row all the way around the bottom if you don’t want to make it look a bit cleaner because it’s not too bad but I think I think I will I just want to even this out but it’s not necessary I can just chain one if you’re finished you can chain one cut your yarn leave a little bit of tail and
you’re gonna have to sew that in or if you want to do the another row on the bottom then what you do after the last stitch you chain one just as I did and I’m gonna put an single crochet into the same stitch and we’re just gonna start going on the button see that corner looks a bit a bit nicer now so I’m going to do this all the way on the bottom until I get to the other side when I finish I’m going to chain one cut my yarn and I’m gonna see you after this and we can start on our sleeves so I don’t think that’s
difficult so I’m not gonna show how I end and everything so I’m gonna see you after this okay so this is what we have so far so we have sleeves left and the ears if you want of course you don’t have to do the ears if you don’t want to sew the sleeves are probably one of the harder parts to explain they are not hard to make once you understand what you’re doing so what I did I’m gonna go all the way around and then I’m gonna keep turning my rows I’m not gonna go all one way because then it will be very noticeable that all the
stitches are only good side up or the wrong side up if you know what I mean so I’m gonna keep changing directions so I keep that same look all the way and what I do so I’m gonna put one double crochet into each stitch in the first row and then I’m gonna do a decrease one stitch decrease in the second row then one double crochet in every stitch then 1 decrease all I’m gonna crochet all stitches decrease by 1 and so I’m gonna do a decrease in every second row now I would say you should write down what you do with the sleeves just in case so you
don’t get one sleeve bigger than the other one so this is what I always do I’m just as I’m making my first sleeve I’m just gonna write down so I had 33 stitches in the first row and I did a one stitch decrease so I had two at the end of Row two so then I make 12 rows at the end of 12 roh-roh 12 I have 27 stitches and then there’s four rows for the roll back sleep so this is the one two three and four rows for the rolling it back if you want so I would say I do that and what else what else what else was I going to say I forgot um oh oh yes yes yes
so yeah this is the two measurements the like I said they are not that important the only thing is that if I’m a measuring tape so as you can see so upper arm of a baby around that age is about sixteen and a half centimeters for me so I just find my measuring tape I find my 16 and a half I put it in half like this and I’m gonna see so just to make sure that my that’s my hand will fit and it will have a bit of space for you know just to have a bit more space and then I look up my wrist which I have about 11 centimeters find my measuring
tape and my 11 centimeters put it in half and this is the risk that this is where it’s gonna be just like that see I just want to make sure that it fits and then I just control you know once in a while I just measure it and see if it’s not getting you know too small if my hand is going to fit in there so it would it would have to be somewhere in between 16 and a half to 11 centimeters so we’re gonna do a bit of decreasing but really really slow less it is a jacket we don’t really want it too tight so oh then we need the sleeve length so
I’m gonna do about 17 and a half centimeters for the length and the last four rows are just extra so I do my full length and then extra four rows roll it back so you always you can always roll it back more or less so that’s it okay we are going to find our sleeve I’m gonna put put down my notes so I can see and the first thing that we need to figure out is which way sorry we have to start my sleeve as we have the rose with the good side of the double crochets up which is a bit more straight like this this is the good good side up and you can see these ones are a bit
more wavy this is the wrong side up so I have good side up I’m gonna start with I’m gonna connect my yarn here and I’m gonna start crocheting from the inside like that way to the right-hand side if your last row is wiggly wiggly wavy you’re gonna have to connect your yarn and start crochet from the left side up I hope you can understand that’s that way we’re gonna keep the keep the same kind of a picture going all the way through the cabinet so row first or the first row I find my chin one that I did in the bottom now if you did more chains
you’re gonna have to find the one that is mostly in the middle I only have one in the in between my double crochet so I’m just gonna connect there like this I’m gonna chain two one and two and like I said I’m gonna start going to the right side so like this and I’m gonna start doing double crochets and I need to count so I had thirty three double crochets in the other sleeve so I can’t the chain two as warm I’m gonna put a double crochet so this is a double crochet from the last row I’m gonna put one double crochet into
the bottom of it so – now remember if you have more chains under their arm hole you need to crochet into the chains before that you don’t skip the change you just crochet into them so but I don’t have any so I start on the double crochets on the side straightaway so one two for me two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen and I’m gonna keep going and I’m gonna meet you here and we’ll see if I’m gonna get my stitches that I had on the other sleeve so I’m on thirty stitches now so thirty thirty-one I have
my double crochet on the other side there that we connected it with so so I had 31 32 and my last one is 33 so I did get the same amount as I had in the other sleep so what I’m gonna do now so this is our chain one one sorry chain two one two chains and we’re gonna connect into this stitch right above it not into the chain itself but the whole stitch like that and we’re gonna connect it exactly the same in every row like that then a chain two one two and I’m gonna turn around now whichever way you’re going so this is my
decrease roles so we have to understand the stitches to do that decreasing in this so if you see my chain two and then I have a hole in this side and I kind of a have a hole in this side so when I will be decreasing I will skip those both I will not crochet into any of them I’m just gonna turn around and I’m gonna go straight into that stitch and then I’m gonna come back and I’m gonna finish here I’m gonna leave those two empty now when I’m not going to decrease I’m gonna crochet straight under the chain two in
that side and I’m gonna leave the other side empty that way we will know so how to decrease and not we’re just gonna skip a stitch pretty much and it’s and this is the place where you won’t be able to see that there’s anything skipped so chain two yarn over so I’m gonna do decreasing so I’m gonna skip that I’m gonna go into the next one and I should have 32 stitches at the end of this row now I’m gonna finish this row and I’m gonna see you back here okay so I’m two stitches away from finishing my
second row just wanted to make sure that you understand so as you can see these are the two stitches that I need to crochet the next stitch is where our chain two comes out so we are going to leave that one I’m just gonna do two double crochets one and two if it’s easier for you obviously you can count the stitches in every row and then you’ll know if you have the same number or anything so we’re gonna skip that if we crocheting into this one we are going to well we wouldn’t increase it on this but I always leave that unless
I’m increasing I hope it didn’t mix get you all mixed up now you’re gonna leave that for the sleeves and then we find one too this is the two chains you can see so one chain two chain and the stitch right above above them put my hook in pull out make a slipknot slip stitch sorry chain two and I’m gonna turn around now this is the row that I don’t I’m not gonna do decreasing so like I said I yarn over and I go straight back here next to the chain two and I’m gonna do one double crochet into each stitch like that and I’m gonna see
you at the end of this row and I’m gonna show you one more time how to decrease just in case it was hard for you to see before so I’m at the end of my row free and as you can see I have crocheted my last stitch and this is where my chain two comes out of it can see the the thread there or they are so I’m going to I’m not going to do anything in that and I’m just gonna find one to change that I did in the beginning and the stitch above and I’m just gonna do a slipknot I’m gonna chain two and this is my
decrease row so what I’m gonna do is I’m just going to skip this and I’m gonna go straight into the next stitch and this is what I’m going to do for the whole sleep until I get the full length of it I’m gonna just like I said I’m gonna decrease every second row you can do the same or you can do more decreases you you don’t have to decrease this if you don’t want to its although all up to you but I would say write that down just to make sure because we don’t always have time to sit down and do both sleeves at
the same time or after the other so it’s very easy to forget and then this leaves come out completely different so I’m gonna do 12 rows which is my length what I need for the sleeve and I’m gonna see you here and I’m going to do the I don’t know if I’m gonna show all four rows but I’m I’m just gonna stop here and I will show you where to measure from for the sleeve length so it’s you soon okay so I finished with the main part of my sleeve and I’m gonna measure I’m gonna measure
from the row that I started it on as you can see this is the last row of the yoke that has a hole so I’m just gonna measure it from the next row this is about seventeen and a half centimeters exactly what I was looking for so you look for your measurement and make the full length what you need and then I’m just gonna do another four rows you can do more or less or you don’t have to do any at all if you like this kind of sleep so I have two more rows of double crochets then a row of cross stitch and a row of single crochets so whatever you
do whatever you want to do just do your next few rows and double crochets and I’m just gonna do two more like I said and I’m gonna come back and we’ll show you real quick what I’m gonna do with a cross stitch row okay so I did my two extra rows and I’m going to start my cross stitch now I forgot to say no more decreasing after we start making the rollback like the very end of it so no more decreasing because it will be a bit it won’t be row it will not roll back very well if you will so what I’m gonna do now so this is my cross stitch
row I’m gonna do two chains and I’m gonna start crossing my stitches so just like we did before we’re only going to do it in the circle that exactly the same all the way sorry excuse me all the way around okay so don’t think it’s very hard because we did that before so I’m gonna meet you right here I am on my last cross stitch right here look I have two stitches left as always somehow I get a good number so if you don’t just use this side it won’t make a difference but I have two stitches left I’m gonna do my last cross
stitch I’m gonna connect on the very top with a slip stitch chain one and I’m just gonna do single crochets all the way around one into each stitch and this is the very last row of our sleeve you can obviously you can do more if you like I can do double crochets here in the end you can actually do two rows of the Cross stitches like we did on the bottom of the cardigan whatever you feel like it’s like that one and every stitch and I’m gonna get back here and we will be connecting and sewing in the tail at the end of this row I’m just gonna make
my last single crochet I’m gonna slip stitch chain one cut my yarn if I can find my scissors somewhere hmm found them so I’m gonna leave a bit of a longer tail tying a little bit I’m just gonna cut my yarn I’m gonna pull out my hook and I’m just gonna quickly show you how I had my ends so what I do is that I go straight back into that stitch like that pull that out tight and then I go in between the stitches of the last row or any available rows that are closest to to your needle I’m just gonna go forward and back and that’s it cut the end and
we can roll back the sleeve now so out like that and see what we have here we have two sleeves like that so the only thing we have left is the ears you don’t have to put them on if you don’t want them but I I will and I will show you how I do them I’m gonna hide my the last of my tails after the ears and I’m gonna put in the buttons but sew the ears so I’m gonna use two colors it’s gonna look a bit like that and have a bright pink in the middle and it’s four rows of the half double crochets so I’m gonna find my pink yarn
yeah and I’m gonna start with a magic salt circle now if it’s hard for you to start it with a magic circle I would say do 3 chains just leave the very first chain really loose and just crochet into that but I will show you so what I do is I just wrap it around see hold my tail and I just wrap it my fingers like this and what I do is I put my hook under and I catch that yarn that is behind I pull it out oops like that and I just hold it down like this and I chain two so one and two and I’m gonna make ten half double crochets into that circle so yarn over
put in catch the yarn and pull all through through all three loops sorry so that’s one I don’t count the change so that’s one two three four five six seven eight nine and ten now either you made three chains in the beginning or the Magic Circle just pull the tail tight like that and I’m gonna find that very first stitch right here and I’m gonna join with a slip stitch like that row two starts with two chains so one and two and do half double crochet into the stitch just before the chain so if we do 1 half double crochet here then we’re
gonna do two half double crochets into each stitch now if you want the ear a little bit bigger than mine you can do one of the rows and double crochets it won’t make a big difference and it will make it it will make the year to be bigger if you want whichever row not the last one though sorry any of the 3 rows any of the first three rows you can make it in double crochets so coming to the end here I do the last stitch and now what I have left this is the stitch that we did not crochet in when we were making their sleeves I was before the chain now because we are increasing and this is a
circle I’m gonna make one half double crochet there like that and I’m gonna join the slip stitch into the very very top stitch you should have twenty half double crochets and the chain through there as well I’m gonna cut the yarn I’m gonna do two more rows of green so like this we will do some increasing in this row as well so what we’re gonna do is just connect any we’re just gonna do this here catch my and pull out I’m gonna do it two chains one and two one half double crochet into the next one then I’m gonna do two half double
crochets into the next one one and two I’m gonna do one half double crochet into the next stitch and then two into the next one I’m gonna do one into the next stitch and then two into the next one so we keep doing that we do one and then we do two half double crochets one and two so once we get to there I was slip stitch all our knot we are gonna do one then when we’re gonna crochet into the other side of the knot as well I’m gonna do it two there and then I’m gonna just keep going doing the same all the way around the ear had one
and I’m gonna do – don’t worry if you make a little mistake or you don’t you have extra stitches or you you don’t have as many as I do or you messed up someone you will not be able to see that because it is a very small circle and once you are going to sew those ears up you won’t be able to see anything so I’m just gonna keep going you have to have sorry one and I’m gonna finish with two half double crochets I’m gonna slip stitch so this is a chain – I’m gonna slip sit straight into the first stitch
above the chain to that I’m gonna change you again and I’m just gonna do one half double crochet now into every stitch all the way around so I’m not increasing any more which will give me that look has kind of a kind of a disorder don’t know how to call that the sides will be going up that is because we’re not gonna increase in the very last row so all the way around one half double crochet into every stitch okay so at the end of the last row I have one more stitch left you know who do have double crochet I’m not gonna crochet into the
stitch before the chain – well it’s not realistic it’s kind of a slip stitch from the last row when I leave that because we’re not increasing any more I’m just gonna slip stitch into the very top stitch then a chain one and I’m gonna cut my hand and I’m going to leave a bit longer tail because this is the same I’m going to sew it on – with the same using the same tail so I’m just gonna pull it out now what we’re gonna have to do is gonna finish the the back of the ear here so I crocheted over
these two tails so I can just cut them off but the very middle tail needs a knot because it was a magic circle and it can go loose on us unless you did the chain free in the beginning that will have a knot but this way and I’m just gonna go and over back and front find that loop and I’m gonna put my yarn in through and pull tight and just go and throw a couple of stitches around just to secure that tail so it’s not coming out and that’s it the years are done so make another one obviously I have to now you make another one the same and then what
we’re gonna do is we’re gonna sew it on now I am going to have a really hard time sewing it on on the table because I have a very very little wiggle place here and what I normally do is I sit down on my bed bend my knee and just put the hood over my knee and then I just see where I want the ears to be as uh as I said I have very little place here so I can’t really show you how I’m going to do this because I’m gonna end up with completely I’m not gonna do a good job I know that on the table so but what I do is I’m just gonna show you so if I would
have it on my over my knee it’s easier to place it and to see where you want them so how to sew it on so I would start see this knot we put it on top of one of the rolls wherever you feel like you want it and I would start sewing it on the very very very edge for the length that I want you see like this and then what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna go to the back of it and I’m gonna sew it again at the back of the ear come back here make a knot and just cut the yarn so I can I hope I can you can understand what I’m saying so just sew it on from the front on the
straight line from the front then go to the back cannot see anything here go to the back and sew it close to the back again make kind of a little rectangular sewing then do exactly the same with the other year so I’m gonna sew it on off-camera I am sorry but I it’s really I’m going to move the camera all the time if I’m gonna try to do it right here so I’m gonna do the ears I’m gonna hide my rest of my tails and I’m gonna sew in my buttons and I am going to show you what I ended up with so I’m going to see you
in a bit and this is the end result I have sewn on my ears and my buttons and I think it looks super cute roll back my hood and this is it I hope you liked it please do press the like button if you did please do comment if you have any questions ask I will be happy to help if I can you need some measurements or advice you can contact me on Facebook or in the comment section so I will wish you all the best bye
