Age 3-6 months.
Wool I knit with:
“Baby” blue color 6 skeins of 50g each and Alise Baby Softy white color 2 skeins of 50g each for sleeves and hood.
To decorate the “paws” I also used wool with blue acrylic.
Back and front details
Start with booties and knit as one piece.
For the foot of the left booties on knitting needles No. 3.5, dial 37 loops and tie 1 row of faces. Mark loops No. 2 and No. 20 and knit faces. stitch, on both sides of the intended loops, performing in each 2nd row 3 times 1 crochet = 49 loops. Then knit without adding 14 rows of faces. satin stitch. Slip the first 23 sts and the last 15 sts on the auxiliary needle and knit the remaining 11 sts for the toe in garter stitch, knitting the last loop of the toe with the first loop from the auxiliary needle 7 times in each row. Resume all 35 stitches and work 6 rows in 1 x 1 Rib.
For the trouser leg, continue knitting with knitting needles No. 4 in garter stitch. After 17 cm, postpone knitting.
Knit the right bootie in the same way, marking the additions of loops No. 18 and No. 36. For the toe, leave the first 15 loops and the last 23 loops on the auxiliary knitting needle. Knit the pants in the same way.
On faces. knitting side, join the loops as follows: cast on 10 loops, slip 35 loops of the right leg, cast on 10 loops, remove 35 loops of the left leg and cast on 10 loops = 100 loops.
Continue knitting in garter stitch. After 20 cm from the beginning of the edge, divide the knitting as follows: 27 loops – the right shelf, 46 loops – the back and 27 loops the left shelf.
Continue knitting 27 loops of the right shelf, decreasing in each 2nd row for the armhole 14 times 1 loop.
At the same time, to cut the neckline after 7 cm from the beginning of the armhole, first close 9 loops, then in each 2nd row 1 time 2 loops and 2 times 1 loop.
Knit the left shelf of the overalls symmetrically. Resume knitting 46 loops of the back, decreasing on both sides for armholes in each 2nd row 14 times 1 loop. Cast off the remaining 18 stitches and finish knitting at a distance of 47 cm from the booties.
Here’s what I have now. It connected booties with trouser legs and switched to continuous knitting of shelves and backs.
On needles No. 3.5, cast on 25 loops and knit 8 rows with an elastic band 1 x 1. Continue knitting with needles No. 4 in garter stitch, evenly adding 8 loops in the 1st row = 33 loops. For an okat sleeve at a height of 16 cm, decrease on both sides in each row 14 times 1 loop and at a total height of about 26 cm close the remaining 5 loops.
assembly + hood
Run the seams, sew into the armholes of the sleeve. On the edge of the neckline for the hood, pick up the loops on knitting needles No. 3.5, leaving 8 loops of each shelf free and knit 6 rows with an elastic band 1 x 1. Continue knitting with knitting needles No. 4 in garter stitch. After 21 cm from the elastic, close all the loops. Sew the hood seam. On the fastener bar of the left shelf for buttons, make 4 holes (overcast 1 loop): the first is about 3 cm from the beginning of the edge and the last is about 1 cm from the top edge, the rest are evenly distributed. Sew on buttons. Run a pompom, sew it to the hood.
Knitting density: 10 x 10 cm = 17 loops x 29 rows.
Since I will do it with a zipper, I don’t need to make holes, I’ll just sew on a lock. As for the pompom, I still think it will most likely be without it.
Since the question arose more than once about knitting booties, I describe how I knitted booties, though without photos:
For the foot of the left booties on knitting needles No. 3.5, dial 37 loops and tie 1 row of faces. Mark loops No. 2 and No. 20 and knit faces. stitch, on the intended loops, performing in each 2nd row 3 times 1 increase = 43 loops. Then knit without adding 14 rows of faces. satin stitch. My increase is as follows: from the marked loop, I pulled out one new loop for the back wall, and one more for the front. Slip the first 20 sts and the last 12 sts on the auxiliary needle and knit the remaining 11 sts for the toe in garter stitch, knitting the last loop of the toe with the first loop from the auxiliary needle 7 times in each row. That is, we divide 43 loops into three knitting needles: 20 + 11 + 12. We knit on the middle one, where there are 11 loops in garter stitch, while reaching the end of the row, we knit the last loop of the row together with the loop on the next knitting needle. And so 4 times or 8 decreases (on the left and right sides of the middle knitting needle). We should have only 35 loops left. From this place we knit, as it is written in the diagram.
Note about shelves:
I will have a zipper not open, but overlapped on top with a shelf bar. The result can already be seen below. And if someone wants an ordinary open zipper (i.e., which is sewn to the planks of the shelves butt-to-butt), then the straps need to be knitted less: at the stage of connecting the legs and switching to the shelves with the back, we collect fewer loops for the straps on the sides. I think that instead of 10 pet. dial 5. Then you get a butt joint without overlap.
It was originally planned that the overalls would be threads of the same color – blue, but there were not enough threads, I had to buy another yarn. So you get a combined jumpsuit (what a funny play on words): the sleeves and hood will be from a more delicate white Alise Baby Softy bun. But I also think it will be good. You will get the feeling that a white blouse is peeking out of a blue jumpsuit.
After 20cm I separated 27st. right shelf, and put the rest on the auxiliary knitting needle. I start knitting the right shelf.
Finished the right side. I knit the left one in the same way.
Finished the shelves and back. I hid all the threads. I decided to first connect the seams on the basis of the overalls, since nothing needs to be done with this part. Then I’ll move on to the sleeves.
There was a little lack of crumbs on the back. I had to start adding Softy from Alize. But it turns out beautifully in the end.
On the back, I knitted it with a double thread in white, since the threads differ in thickness.
I have now started knitting sleeves. I knitted a trial piece from a single thread of Softy. It turns out thinner than from crumbs. And the density of knitting – for 10 cm – 19 loops. I will try to knit one sleeve now with a single thread and see if it will be much different. For this, based on the calculations, I scored not 33 loops, but 37. I decided to knit without an elastic band, with mittens that turn away. Below we discussed how best to make mittens. I haven’t found any blueprints yet. I stopped for the time being on the option – knit separately and sew to the sleeve.
I knit a sleeve in stocking stitch (1 row of facial, 1 row of purl, etc.), as I looked – I like it better. And the scarf is a little ribbed.
Here for comparison:
I got this sleeve:
I decided to knit in one thread. I will not bind. It turned out very soft and warm. In two – it will be rougher.
I knitted sleeves, which consist of the sleeve itself and the mitten.
I sewed the mitten to the sleeve on one side, decorated it and I will also make a button with a loop so that the mitten fastens on the non-sewn side (otherwise it will constantly move away from the sleeve):
I also decorated the feet:
And so I combined the two colors I used.
The next step is the zipper:
First, we sew the right half of the zipper to the right bar, but not edge to edge, but indented:
Then we sew the left half of the zipper to the left bar, also indented:
Thus, the lock is closed from above with a bar:
And the lower end of the zipper rests against the joint of the planks. At first I thought to sew it directly into the seam of the joining of the planks, but it turns out to be very rough and thick. And so very neat. Here’s what happens:
Last step: hood
I scored loops on the neck with knitting needles 3.5. I did it: 14 loops. on the shelves and 28 on the back. Since the scheme does not indicate a specific number, everyone is already gaining as it will, we try, of course, more often.
Then we knit 6 rows with an elastic band
We move on to needles number 4. I moved away from the scheme and, when switching to other knitting needles, I nevertheless made an increase of 1.5 times: on every 3rd loop, so that the hood turned out deeper. And I didn’t guess. The depth is what you need. Not a lot and not a little. And she tied the height, as it is written: 21cm in garter stitch.
Here’s a preview of what we’ve got so far:
The jumpsuit is almost ready. What’s left to do:
1. I decided to hem the lapel at the hood as it is – outward and it will be a drawstring into which I will thread strings with pom-poms, because I think that it would still be better to pull the hood on the child.
2. Ears will be attached to the hood to complete the look.
3. It is necessary to sew a button with a loop at the top of the fastener so that the latter does not protrude.
I have the final stage: ears!
I knitted two amigurumi circles up to 48 loops. from white threads and folded them in half – large parts turned out.
I crocheted two semicircles in 3 rows of blue threads – small inner parts turned out.

So my plush jumpsuit is ready!
