If the needlewoman has a dog, not evenNecessarily a dog, and any pet, then be sure that the size of her wardrobe wardrobe will compete with the wardrobe of any fashionista. In our climate, where frosts, winds and drafts are not uncommon, clothing for animals is not at all a whim of the owners, but a real necessity. Especially this applies to cats and dogs of a slender build, as well as a modest hairline. Knitting for animals is not invented in our day, modern needlewomen are only improving models of clothing and adapting them to the newly emerging breeds of cats and dogs. Give heat to your pet and knit his overalls with knitting needles.
Choosing the yarn
If your pet is devoid of wool, then yarn for clothing should not only warm or protect from sunburn, but also not irritate the delicate skin. Ideal for:
- cotton. From this natural fiber it is possible to tie a thin blanket that protects from sunlight or a coveralls for early autumn;
- Wool + acrylic fiber. This combination of fibers makes the clothes very warm and soft. Ideal for warm winter sweaters and overalls;
- mohair. This is yarn made of Angora goat wool. Very soft, warm and fluffy;
- Fantasy yarn. It includes "plush", "grass", ribbon yarn, yarn with pompons, bouclé, with paillettes. It is suitable for dressing as well as for creating a full bright and original costume. The main thing is that the yarn is not prickly and stiff.
How to take measurements
Knitting for dogs needs to start with taking measurementsWith the pet. In order to make it easier to take measurements, put the dog's collar on the dog, so that it does not fit tightly around the neck. On it you can measure the neck circumference, and from it measure the length of the back to the beginning of the tail.
Even for work, you will need a measurement of chest circumference. It is measured at the widest point. The waist circumference is the narrowest place on the body. You can also measure the length and girth of the paws, for a tight fit of the product's pants.
We knit a mohair jumpsuit
For work, take a soft, fluffy and veryWarm yarn - mohair. To make the product dense and not blown, take thin knitting needles, no more than number 2, but if you want a lightweight loose knitted suit, you can work with knitting needles # 4 or # 5. Such a light outfit can be tied up for autumn, and also if your dog has a dense thick coat.
I would like to add that knitting for animals inFirst of all it pursues a practical function, and if you are a mistress of the Siberian husky, then there is no need to dress her up in warm knitted sweaters, well, except for a stylish family photo shoot.
Also, you will need pins, a hook, a lace and a buckle for the overalls (buttons, buttons or velcro).
There are no diagrams for this product, just follow theDescription. First we knit the sample and calculate the number of loops that we will type. Let's start knitting the overalls with knitting needles with a rubber band 1x1, the height of the collar choose an arbitrary one. It can be, as a small rack, and a high collar with a lapel.
Having typed the necessary quantity of rows of a mouth, we start to adding loops.
In the first row, we make additions every 5-6Loops, depending on how many of them you have already recruited. Adding is done with the usual wrap, in the formed holes (make sure that their number is even), then the lace will be inserted later.
The next row is knitted with an elastic band according to the drawing.
In the third row, additions are made this way: first the cape, and then pull the broach from the previous row. The next row is according to the figure.
When the canvas is a little wider, you need to tie the wedges. They make the overalls fit more comfortable for the dog.
We divide the canvas into three parts and distribute them on the borders of the pin.
We knit to the second pin, then we unfold the canvas and we will tie a row to the first pin, again turn and to the end. Then follow the picture.
Repeat the previously described actions two more times to form two wedges.
Here, that should turn out.
Now we start working on the so-called armholes for the legs. For the middle part we leave a few loops, and we divide the sides in half. So, as in the photo.
Each part is knitted separately by the facial surface. In order to know what the length of our armholes, you need to measure the "length of the back" by three, we will get the size we need. But, in order not to hinder the movements of a moving pet, you can tie up about 1 cm.
Now you need to reconnect all three parts into one single canvas.
We knit the facial surface until the product closes the chest and part of the abdomen. At this point, we again divide the canvas into three equal sections, and the one that is closed in the center.
We work on the sides until they close their hips. Here it is better to try on fitting.
Close the hinges of the sides. Do not cut off the remaining threads, they will be useful to us. Of these, using a hook, you need to tie loops that fix the overalls on the hind legs.
The final stage of work on the main partWill be tying all open edges of the product, also with the help of a hook, but if you do not work by hook, then you can tie it with knitting needles. So the product will become a little freer and we will have a strap for fastening the fastener.
We still have sleeves, which we must sew inArmholes. To do this, you need to measure the girth of the legs, or navigate through the slots that we left. Do not make the sleeves too wide and long, otherwise they will drag along the floor, get dirty, and they will hardly be warmed.
Knitting for dogs has some features, andIs different from working with clothes for people. Not everything that is suitable for your clothes will suit your pet. Landing of things should not be too dense, but it's also fashionable for us to "oversize", for animals it will be superfluous. The dog can be tangled in wide sleeves and trousers, and large voluminous hoods can distract her from the walk.
Now we will take care of the accessories. In the bottom of the neck, insert a decorative braid and stoppers.
And we sew the buckle. In this case, these are buttons, but you can sew buttons or Velcro fasteners.
A nice and warm jumpsuit is ready!
Knitting for animals is not difficult, but very exciting and enjoyable. Pamper your pets with warm, warm clothes!
