REVERSIBLE HOODED BABY JACKET By: Esther Huhn 





DOUBLE LAYER HOODED BABY JACKET



materials: for 3-6 months: 250-300 g baby wool in each color, 3 mm crochet hook
stitches: ch: chain stitch
dc: double crochet (UK) = single crochet (US)
tr: treble (UK) = double crochet (US)

JACKET

YOKE
Begin at the neck, and make 49ch.
Base row: into second ch. from hook, make 1dc, continue with 1dc into each ch. to end, turn.
1st row: 2ch. 1tr into first dc. 1tr into each of next 5dc. * 3tr into next dc. 1tr into each of next 6dc. Repeat from * five times more, turn.
2nd row: 1ch. 1dc into each tr to end, turn.
3rd row: 2ch, 1tr into each of first 7dc. * 3 tr into next dc, 1tr into each of the next 8dc. Repeat from * ending with 1tr into each of the last 7dc, turn.
4th row: As 2nd row
5th row: 2ch, 1tr into each of first 8dc. * 3tr into next dc, 1tr into each of next 10dc. Repeat from * ending with 1tr into each of the last 8dc, turn
6th row: As 2nd row
7th row: 2ch, 1tr into each of first 9dc, * 3tr into next dc. 1tr into each of next 12dc, repeat from *, ending with 1 tr into each of last 9dc, turn
8th row: as 2nd row
These 8 rows complete the yolk

SKIRT

Turn after the 8th row of the yoke, and continue as follows:
1st row of arches: 3ch, 1tr into first dc, *3ch, skip 3dc, make 1dc, 3ch & 2tr into 4th dc.* Repeat from * to * until end, you should have 24 arches.
2nd to 5th row of arches: Turn, 3ch, 1tr into first dc from previous row, 3ch, 1dc under 3ch arch from previous row, * 3tr into next dc, 3ch, 1dc under chain arch from prev row.* Repeat from * to * until end.
Continue until you have 5 rows of arches.
6th row: Make the division for the sleeves: Crochet 4 arches, 7ch, skip 4 arches , crochet another 8 arches, 7ch, skip 4 arches, continue with 4 more arches until end.
7th row: Crochet arches as before. Make 2 new arches on the 7 ch from the previous row (the same way the arches were made in the 1st row). Do this on either side, so you end up with 20 arches, and 2 openings for arms.
Continue until you have about 20 rows of arches, counting from the yoke. Cast off.
sleeves: Onto the 6th row of the skirt, in the armhole, continue to crochet arches, making sure you go in the right direction to continue the pattern. On the 7ch from the 6th row, add 2 arches, so you end up with 6 arches. Continue until you have about 15 rows, going backwards and forwards (the sleeves are sewn together afterwards) . To make a nicer pattern , start at the beginning of each row of arches with 3 ch, 2tr (instead of 1tr) into 1st dc. Cast off. Do the same with the other sleeve.




HOOD:
Start with 60 ch.
1st row: dc all the way
2nd row: Make 15 arches, the same way as in the 1st row of arches for the skirt
Continue until you have about 22 rows of arches. Continue around the side of the hood with a row of dc, and cast off. Do the same on the other side.

FINISH:
Make the jacket and the hood twice, in two different colors.
For each hood, fold the rectangle in two, and sew the back of the hood (i.e. the base row of dc) together, so that the scalloped edge of the pattern comes to the front, around the face. Insert one hood into the other, making sure that the crochet patterns in both hoods are aligned . Crochet both hoods together with dc or crab stitch, along the scalloped edge at the front. (do this with wool in one of the colors used for jackets, or with a shiny cotton yarn).
For each jacket, sew the sides of the sleeves together, neatly matching up the pattern along the edges, so the seam is invisible. Insert one jacket into the other, making sure the crochet patterns in both jackets are aligned. Crochet the bottoms of the sleeves of both jackets together with dc or crab stitch.
Crochet both jackets together with dc or crab stitch, along the front edges and the bottom (scalloped edge). To obtain straight edges, and to provide a slight overlap, you may want to do 2 or 3 rows of dc along the front edges.
If you intend to close the jacket with button(s), work one or more button holes into the dc rows along the front edge of the yoke (on one side only). To do this, while doing a row of dc, you make several ch and skip as many dc; in the next row, you make a dc into each of the ch.
Around the neck, crochet both jackets together starting with 1tr, 2ch, skip 2, 1tr, 2ch and so on until end.
Sew the hood to the jacket: sew the bottoms in dc of both hoods to the row of ch stitch along the neck of the jacket.
Sew the button(s) onto the yolk or thread a satin ribbon through the trebles in the 2nd row of the yoke.

A single layer jacket, without the hood, makes a nice matinee jacket

  19. why are you not answering the questions that many have asked?. If they are kind enough to visit your page and compliment you on your sweater then why not take the time like they did and answer back? Just curious

  22. I am hoping someone can help me. In the instructions it says 1 dc under ch 3. What does this mean? Crochet in the row below? Dc un ch3 space? I am so confused with this pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Has anyone made this and be willing to help please? I am stuck at row two of the skirt where it says "Turn, 3ch, 1tr into first dc from previous row, 3ch, 1dc under 3ch arch from previous row, * 3tr into next dc..." I understand and have done everything up to where the star begins. how can I do three trebles in the next dc when it is all the way over the other side of the 'cluster'?
