Good afternoon Creative! Every time you've asked me why I never did two-needle knitting tutorials, I've always told you that two-needles were my unfinished business, but a few days ago I saw the image of this cute baby jacket and I was encouraged to do it for winter, which already seems imminent, and as always with step by step to share it with you.
The style and the idea has been taken from the «Ribbed Baby Jacket» originally published on the Raverly pattern website, although I have done it my way by modifying the number of stitches for each size, the shape of the sleeves and their construction that in the original pattern are woven in the round) and the front and neck so that the jacket is crossed and give it a more modern look.
In the images you will find the number of stitches that should be used to make the jacket for size 12 months using needles number 6 and three balls of 100gr. of wool for number 6, if you want to use a thinner or thicker wool, as well as needles of different sizes, we will have to increase or decrease the number of stitches as needed. In the same way, you also have the instructions to make the baby jacket with two needles in the sizes 6 months, 3 months and 1 month, you will find the number of points necessary in the images in parentheses and in this order next to the one indicated quantities for 12 months.
You must take into account when removing the stitches for the neck and front, that as it is an elastic stitch, if at each point we lift one the neck it will remain shrunken, to avoid this we must lift a double stitch, two single stitches, double stitch , colon, single point, etc ... if you still think that it is shrunken for your taste, try a double point and a single point. There are no rules here as it will depend on your taste and your way of raising the points.
And I think that with this I pay off my debt with the two needles, I did not have too much confidence in this project and it was an experiment since I have not followed any pattern, but I have been inventing it on the fly seeing an image, but the truth I like the result and my particular model looks great, so it won't be the first and last thing you see around here knitting with two needles.
