Newborn Romper Knitting Pattern
I created this romper pattern with Newborn Photographers in mind, but this little piece of clothing makes a cute addition to any newborn closet.
With this purchase, you will receive the knitting pattern, not the finished product.
There are 2 versions of this romper, as reflected in the pictures. You will receive both patterns in a download. If you have any questions don't hesitate to email me.
Things you will need to know:
K - knit
P – purl
M1- knit one stitch from the bar between the right and left-hand needle
Pm- place marker
Sm- slip marker
Yo – yarn over
K2P – Slip stitch, knit 2 together. Pass slip stitch over (double decrease)
Kf/b – knit front and back into the same stitch (increase) Making 2 stitches out of 1
M1R – using your right-hand needle, pick up the bar between the right and left-hand needle through the front. Place on the left-hand needle, now knit this stitch through the back loop
M1L - using your right-hand needle, pick up the bar between the right and left-hand needle through the back. Transfer this stick to the left-hand needle knit
|| repeat || - repeat the section between double lines
Kitchener stitch, great youtube videos available
I doubled lace weight yarn 260 yards per 50g, (single 260 yards per 25g) 1 ball of 25g is barely enough (the finished romper weighs in at exactly 25g), but you will have to knit from both sides (careful this could cause knots) I would recommend getting 2 balls of yarn, 72% super kid mohair, 28% silk, gauge: 5 stitches x 7 rows = 1” x1” (wispy)
Worsted yarn, 137 yards per 50 g, gauge: 5 stitches x 7 rows = 1”x1”(warm)
2 stitch markers, scrap yarn, darning needle, double pointed needle spiel size 4 (3.5mm), circular needles size 4 (3.5mm) 16 inches long.
