If you want to gift children with friends, you often have a hard time: Not every toy meets the educational goals of your parents. In contrast to industrially produced toys, however, home-made things are usually welcomed. Especially when it comes to clothing. Because those who have children can never have enough of it. This is one reason why DIY fans like to give away self-made kid's sweaters. In this knitting pattern we show you step by step how to knit a children's sweater yourself.
To knit a children's sweater is usually less expensive than some toys bought. In addition, it can be adapted in size and material to the individual needs of the child. The production is fun and the time required for this is manageable. Many knitting beginners hesitate, however, to devote themselves to such a project. Only a few simple steps are necessary to make a pretty children's sweater itself. How you should do this is explained below.
Instructions for a children's sweater
- knitting needles
- possibly additional circular needle
- crochet hook
- Needle for sewing
- tape measure
- Paper and pen
- maybe two small buttons
Measure and create sketch
To tailor a self-knit sweater to the individual body measurements of the child, you should take measurements in advance. Learn how to do this best, here: //www.clubemaxiscootersdonorte.com/richtig-massa-nehmen- Strickpullover /
Then make a sketch for the sleeves as well as the front and back part. Make a note of the appropriate dimensions and convert them into meshes. To do this, proceed from the manufacturer's instructions on the wool label. It is usually noted how many stitches are needed to knit a 10 x 10 cm area. Based on this, you can determine how many stitches you will need to sew on each piece or how many rows you will need to knit to get the length you want.
You have noted the following measurements and transferred them to your sketch: armhole 20 cm, arm length 25 cm. The label states that for a 10 x 10 cm area 20 stitches must be posted and 30 rows must be knitted. To get the armhole, which forms the basis of the trapezoidal arm part, 20 cm long, you have to strike 40 stitches. For it to be 25 cm long, you need to knit 75 rows.
Before you start knitting, think about the neckline in advance. Should it be a sharp or rather a submarine neckline ">
Similar procedure with the sleeve. The base of the trapezoidal sleeve part is the stitched stitches, which together add up to the length of the armhole. As the knitting progresses, stitches have to be taken regularly from both sides to end up with only enough stitches to match the circumference of the wrist. Determine at which intervals you want to remove the stitches and note this also in the sketch.

Cast on stitches
1. Thread the thread around your left hand. To do this, guide it from the little finger over the back of your hand, then pass your index finger clockwise around your thumb. From there, place it between your index and middle finger. Make sure that the end of the thread is long enough to complete the stitching.
2. Hold the needles together with your right hand. Between thumb and forefinger, the thread has formed a cross. Lead the needles through the loop from the bottom right to the side of the thumb. Then grip the thread with the needles above the point where the thread crosses, to the left of the index finger, and pull it through the loop. Below the resulting mesh, a knot has formed. Tighten it and repeat this process until the desired number of stitches are on the needles.
3. Carefully pull one of the needles out of the stitch chain.
Knit right edge stitch
1. Pass the right needle through the loop on the back of the left
2. Grasp the thread with the needle
3. Pass the thread through the loop
Attach left edge stitch
- Lay the thread forward of the last stitch
- Put the last stitch behind the thread on the right needle
Knit right-hand stitch
1. Place the right needle under the loop and feed it from left to right through the loop
2. Thread the thread around the right needle
3. Pass the thread through the stitch
Knit left stitch
1. Lay the thread in front of the stitch
2. Guide the needle through the loop from right to left
3. Grasp the thread with the needle
4. Pass the thread through the loop
1. Guide the crochet hook through the stitch.
2. Next, grab the thread and thread it through the loop. Leave this stitch on the needle.
3. Now pass the crochet hook through the next stitch.
4. Then grasp the thread with the hook and guide it through the loop. Now there are two stitches on the crochet hook.
5. Guide the thread around the needle with your left index finger.
6. Grasp the thread with the hook and pass it through both stitches.
7. If you do not bind off the entire row but only a few stitches, thread the last stitch back onto the knitting needle and knit as usual.
You can use different knitting patterns for the children's sweater. In this example, a smooth front was made with alternating rows of left and right stitches:
- 1st row
- first stitch: Knit off the right edge stitch
- Links mesh
- Last stitch: attach left edge stitch
- 2nd row
- first stitch: Knit off the right edge stitch
- legal mesh
- Last stitch: attach left edge stitch
Knit arm piece
1. Knit stitches to get the length of armhole you want.
2. Knitting the number of rows necessary to reach the desired arm length.
3. Regularly remove stitches from both sides by binding them off with the crochet hook.
4. When you have reached the desired arm length and there are only enough stitches on the knitting needle to match the circumference of the wrist, chop off the remaining stitches completely with the crochet hook.
5. Then sew the remains of the wool with the needle.
Knit front and back
1. Knit stitches to be half the total length.
2. Knitting the number of rows necessary to reach the desired length.
3. For the neckline, periodically remove stitches from both sides by either handcording from the center or knitting on a separate circular needle. In this example, the round needle was replaced by a dark thread for better understanding.
4. Above the neckline, continue knitting separately on the right and left side.
5. When you have reached the desired length and there are only as many stitches on the knitting needle that correspond to the distance between the neck and the shoulder, chop off the remaining stitches completely with the crochet hook.
6. Then sew the wool remnants with the needle.
7. If you have worked with a circular needle, it will remain there first.
Sew individual parts together
1. Lay one sleeve piece lengthwise, right to right, flush against each other. Sew on the side with the needle by using the lockstitch: //www.clubemaxiscootersdonorte.com/mit-der-hand-naehen-lernen/
2. Do the same with the second sleeve and fold both.
3. Now place the front and back sections flush right to right. Sew on top of shoulders first. Then sew the sides from below to the height at which the sleeve is to be attached later.
4. Then pass the sleeves through the sleeve neckline and lay them flush edge to edge. Sew on the sleeves with front and back.
Variant 1: Circumferential collar
This variant is the usual one that is also used in adult jumpers. For this you have to work while knitting the front and back with the round needle.
1. After sewing the individual parts, all remaining stitches on the neckline must now be threaded onto a round needle.
2. Alternately knit a left-hand and then a right-hand stitch. This results in a circular collar. Decide for yourself how many rows you want to attach.
3. Then completely remove the stitches.
4. Sew on the wool remnants afterwards.
Variant 2: Expandable neckline with buttons
This variant is particularly suitable for toddlers, to make them easier to put on the pullover. You can do without the use of circular needles.
1. When knitting the front and back pieces, remove the stitches for the neckline by handcording them off directly with the crochet hook. After sewing the items together, you should stitch the edge of the neckline with a series of chain stitches to hide unsightly transitions.
2. Knit buttonholes at the front.
Measure the button beforehand, consider how big the buttonhole must be and where you place it best. At the point, first chain the necessary number of stitches with the crochet hook. In the next row, add the number of loops removed by passing the thread around the knitting needle as often as necessary. The following rows knit as usual.
3. On the opposite side of the back piece, knit a few rows to make the piece a bit longer. and the buttons can be installed there.
Attention: This area will not be named after the front part!
4. Attach the buttons.
5. Close the neckline by snapping the front and back together.
