Crochet Kitten Clothes with Me (Part 2)
This article is the second part of what I published earlier about making a crochet kitten clothes.
The first part shared which measurements you shoudl take and when you should make some allowances in the measurements.
In this article, I shall share what you materials you need, the skill level required for the project, and a pattern that you could follow along to make clothes for your beloved pets.
This project is Intermediate level. You need to know how to make a chain, single crochet stitch, V-Stitch, double crochet stitch, and slip stitch. You also need to know how to increase stitches.
For beginners, I shall include a short description of how to make the required stitches.
Single crochet stitch- insert your hook in the first chain, yarn over and pull through. You now have your furst single crochet stitch.
Double crochet stitch- yarn over, insert hook on the 3rd chain from the hook, pull through two loop, you would have 2 loops left on the hook then pull through the last 2 loops.
V-Stitch- yarn over, do a double crochet on the 5th chain from the hook, skip two stitches, *do a double crochet, chain 2, and do another double crochet stitch on the same stitch, skip two chains*, and repeat the pattern.
Now that you have an idea on what stitches to use, let us proceed with the materials.
You would need the following materials to get started with this project. You may substitute any materials to other size or yarn weight depending on your preferences. The materials I listed here are just what I used.
4/0 crochet hook
5 ply milk cotton
A pair of scissors
Once you get the items, you are ready to crochet clothes for your pets.
This is a loose step by step process since it will vary depending on the size of your pets.
First thing you need to do is crochet chains until you have the measured neck circumference of your pet. Then slip stitch to the first stitch, make sure that the chain will be straight. Chain 1.
After that, you need to do single crochet in all of the stitches. Slip stitch to the first stitch.
Chain 5, do a double crochet stitch in the same stitch. This will count as your first V- stitch.
Do V- stitch all around following the pattern in the Skill Level part of this article. Repeat this until you reach the desired measurement from the neck to the legs of the pet.
In the next row, we will be using double crochet stitch. You need to lay your project flat, and mark the sides. Then, crochet double crochet stitch in the first half of the project. Chain 2 when you reach the end of the half row. And put double crochet. Repeat this until you reach the desired measurement for armholes. This will be the back part of your project. Fasten off when done.
Next, we would do the front part where the arm holes will be located. To do that, divide the front half of your project into three, taking into regards the measurement of the distance of the legs of your pet. One you locate the distance of the legs, chain 2, and do a row of double crochet stitches until you reach the other side. Add more rows to match the height of the backside.
Create chains (same number as the ones we skipped) to connect the back half to the front half. Do these in both sides.
After that, do double crochet rows until you reach your desired length. Or you may stop at the stomach oart to do a dress. Fasten off.
To do this you would have to determine where to put your skirt. I put mine into the half of the arm holes.
Chain 2, and insert 2 double crochet into the same stitch. Increase around until you reach the other side of your skirt.
Chain 2, and insert double crochet into the same stitch. Do this until you reach the desired length of the skirt.
This is what your finished project should look like when worn by your pets.
The pattern is easy but the result is cute, isn't it?
Let me know if you do end up using this pattern. You may sell any project you made using this pattern. You may credit me as the designer of the pattern if you want.
