I was very curious about the new charity of Woolly Hugs, which will be donated to people with disabilities. Anyone who knits or crochets with this wool will support this great thing, and of course I'm happy to be part of it.
Recently my favorite colors white, pink and light pink have arrived and I am thrilled with the cuddly soft quality.
The Charity offers a comfortable fit even for sensitive baby skin, consists of 75% merino wool, 15% polyamide and 10% polyacid and is washable at 40 degrees.
The run length is about 100 m at 50 g and it can be knitted with needle size 3.5 - 4.5.
Since I got another little granddaughter, it should be a cute baby jacket handknit with lace collar for the little mouse. I already knew what it was supposed to look like, so I could start knitting right away.
For size 68/74 I did not need 3 packs of wool, plus a circular needles size 3.5, three buttons and about 80 cm lace trims.
The back part!
Since the baby jacket should get a lace collar, it was simply knitted in right and left stitches. I think that looks pretty, is quick and easy to work for less experienced knitters.
The back part is 26 cm wide and has a length of 27 cm. For this I have struck 66 stitches and 13.5 kraus right, so knit back and forth in right stitches. Then 14 cm were smooth right, front row right, back row left knitted and everything abgefett.
The two front parts!
Thirty-seven stitches were struck for the right front piece and, just like the back piece, knit 13.5 kraus on the right, ie back and forth in right stitches. For the cuff, I knit 5 stitches at the inner edge.
After 9 cm smooth right for the neckline in every other row, remove 1 x 7, 1 x 4, 2 x 2 and 1 x 1 sts. At a length of 27 cm then the remaining stitches are removed.
The left front part is knitted in the opposite direction and worked up three buttonholes. To do this, knit 1 edge stitch, 1 right stitch, 1 turn the next two stitches together and make a right stitch.
For the sleeves I struck 42 stitches and knitted 2 cm kraus right. Then it went smooth right on to a length of 16 cm. In doing so, I have each 1 stitch increased twice in each eighth row on both sides and then in every sixth row until I reached the 16 cm and the width of 19 cm.
Now all the pieces were sewn together, the buttons and lace trim attached and finished the cute baby jacket.
Have fun reworking!
