Sleeveless jacket for a boy

A sleeveless jacket is a very necessary part of the wardrobe of a teenage boy and a baby. Parents dream that their children do not get sick. Enough to wrap up, not a sweater should be worn on the baby in windy weather on warm days, but a sleeveless jacket (vest). The back of the baby will be warm, and will not overheat. Further in the article interesting models and the most fashionable. In them, the baby will be the most fashionable and protected from drafts and colds.

Warm yarn and knitting needles

Warm yarn does not need to be considered thick threads. Some threads, although thick, do not warm enough to classify them as warm. And there is a very thin mohair thread that will warm faster .

It's all about the composition. It looks rather thin and even openwork, and so much heat from it. Very warm threads with a large wool composition.

Merino threads are often used for children and they have a lot of merino wool, they are soft and warm. Very pleasant to the body. Knitting needles that are suitable for knitting vests are, first of all, models by the thickness of the thread. And they will differ in their numbers.

Set of first stitches for 2 knitting needles

Important! You can’t tie a vest with stocking knitting needles (a master can, of course, use them to make a collar), but circular and ordinary ones will be to the liking of knitters and a vest.

Children's sleeveless jacket (vest) with knitting needles for a boy

Knitting is a pleasure. Moreover, the master will not only enjoy the work itself, but also admire the work received. Next, two new models of sleeveless jackets that can easily be done with knitting needles. Each model has its own description with a step-by-step and convenient section. Schemes and the result of the finished work are also given.

Blue tank top for a boy with knitting needles

This is the coolest model. She has everything that our children love so much - this is a huge hood . There is also a two-way lock, which the child can adjust at his discretion.

The canvas is based on very interesting weaves with alternating front and back surfaces. It looks very unusual. Part of the armhole deceives the master by the fact that there is an additional elastic band, it is difficult to distinguish the line of its beginning, since the pattern itself in rhombuses is very similar to the continuation of the elastic band. Deal with all this triumph will help the scheme to work and description.

To work, you will need:

  • baby pechora (blue);
  • knitting needles along the thickness of the thread;
  • double-sided zipper closure.


Measure the width of the child’s back and add 6 cm to the measurement. The model should be very loose. Next, measure down from the shoulder line, and determine the length of the product. It should be at the level of the circumference of the hips (you can lower it another 5 cm down).


To connect a small square according to the provided scheme with rhombuses. If you use a pehora thread for children of medium thickness, then 30 loops will be enough. To calculate the density of knitting for this square, first stretching the canvas a little. You should get two numbers - this is the number of loops horizontally and the number of loops vertically. For these indicators, calculate a set of loops for the back. For the front part, use exactly half the width of the back.


First, knit an elastic band 10 cm high. This is a 1 * 1 elastic band and a diagram is provided for it. Next, make the transition to the main canvas.

Important! In the initial set of loops for the back, it is necessary to take into account the number of loops for rapport, so that it would not be necessary to reduce the loops, this will be very noticeable and ugly.

Knit the required number of rows. It is very important not to make any armholes and necklines in the model, as the hood will be tied out further. The last row hinges are easy to close. You can use a simple loop closure scheme for this.


The right and left shelves fit exactly the same. This is exactly half the back. It is also important to consider the number of rapport loops. They should be the same in height.


It is more convenient to first perform the shoulder seams of the back and shelves before performing the hood. Then dial along the edge of the neck of the loop, the hood should turn out to be voluminous and therefore the loops should be exactly as much as the back in width. Tie along the main pattern of the fabric to a height of 1/2 the length of the vest. Next, fold the corners of the hood together and make a middle seam. The result is a triangular-shaped hood.


After the hood, you need to make side seams on the vest. Sew a zipper with threads in a tone basis. And the last one is strapping the armholes. It is this detail that is misleading. You need to dial the loops on each edge of the armhole and perform using already familiar elastic bands 6 rows in a circle.

On this product is ready and you can call the boy for the first fitting.

Vest with garter knitting needles

A very interesting model of this vest. This product will highlight any baby. Coarse thread and tight knitting will make the product even warmer. Beautiful braids and decoration are very suitable for the base of the garter stitch.

To work, you will need:

  • children's yarn with a thick thread;
  • knitting needles along the thickness of the thread;
  • buttons.


Measure the width of the shoulders in the boy. Measure the length of the product from the shoulder line to the desired length.


For the sample, it is better to use a garter stitch. Since it is this canvas that occupies most of the model. Knit a small square and measure the number of loops for density knitting. Next, calculate the size of the baby every measurement in loops.


The back starts from the bottom and fits up. For dialing, use not the entire width of the back, but only 1/5. Since the bottom begins a small corner. In each row add two loops, one from each edge. Adding should be done until the number of loops is typed for the width of the back . Then knit unchanged until the middle of the height of the product. After this limit, you will need to make a slight bevel for the armholes. From each edge, close 4 times in one loop through one row. Next, knit to the desired height and close the loops along the pattern of the fabric.


The right shelf and the left are two identical, mirror parts. The width of each is 1/2 of the width of the back, but with the addition of 3 loops for smell. Tie back pattern. That is, first divide the total number of loops by 5 and the set will be small. Make additions symmetrically and knit with additions to the required width.

Next, in the center of the canvas, position the pigtail according to the provided scheme. Knit to the end of the height and close 2 loops on the side of the fastener for 2 cm. Next, knit another 2 cm and completely close the edge. Link the second part as well. For the right shelf, make crochets in the middle of the overlap for buttons.


Sew the details in the shoulders, and with a contrasting thread, complete the collar. Use a garter stitch for him. Make not the entire edge of the neck. Leave the place where the loops were closed 2 cm before the end of the height. Knit a collar with a contrasting thread 4 cm.

Decoration and Clasp

Use buttons to fasten. Sew them on the left part symmetrically to the crochets. To decorate, use small cloths of scarf knit from a contrasting thread.

In width, they should be slightly wider than the pattern of the pigtails. Sew them to the beginning of each pigtail and decorate them with beautiful buttons with stars . So the chic vest model for the child is ready.

Knitting vests with beautiful patterns is not so difficult, especially if such beautiful patterns are at hand.
