12/18 Month Toddler Bathrobe Pattern

img_6733

*** NOTE*** I did update the gauge and hook size for this pattern.  If you were working with the old gauge and hook, the pattern will still work if you are going by the measurements provided.  I did change the number of rows in a few places.  I apologize for any issues this creates for anyone.  Please email me or comment below if you have any questions about the changes or the original pattern. The finished item is intended to be big, so the finished robe with updates or with the old gauge should work for most infants/toddlers wearing sizes 12 months. The updated gauge will work from 12 months through a smaller 18 months.

Size: 12 months

Gauge 9/10 stitches, 4 rows= 4 Inches

Materials: Bernat Baby Blanket- 6 skeins

Crochet Hook: Size K or size needed to obtain guage

Bottom section:

Ch 57

Row I skip 3, DC across (54 st)

Row 2-Ch 2 turn, DC in same stitch and in each stitch across (54 st)

Rows 3-12- repeat row 2. Do not fasten off.

This should measure about 25 inches across and 12 inches tall. You can increase or decrease the number of rows for a longer or shorter bathrobe.

 

Now you will work 3 separate sections which will become the 2 front panels and the back of the robe.

 

1st front panel-

Row 1- Ch 2, DC in same stitch and in each of next 14 stitches (15 DC)

Row 2-6- Ch 2, turn, DC in same stitch and in each stitch across (15 DC) Fasten off

 

Back Panel:

Return to last row of Bottom Section. Starting in the first stitch following the first front panel, join with slip stitch.

Row 1- Ch 2, DC in same stitch and in each of next 24 stitches (24 DC)

Row 2-6- Ch 2, turn, DC in same stitch and in each stitch across (24 DC) Fasten off.

 

2nd Front Panel:

Return to last row of Bottom Section. Starting in the first stitch following the first front panel, join with slip stitch.

Repeat first front panel. (6 rows of 15 DC)

* or, you can also turn the robe so the other side is facing and rework the front first panel on the opposite side (from outside to in)

 

Join Shoulders:

Fold the front panels over to meet in the center. Slip stitch the outer 5 DC on each front panel to the outer 5 DC on the back panel.

Your piece should now resemble a vest, with 34 stitches around the neck.

 

Sleeves:

Join with slip stitch to the bottom stitch of the armhole.

 

Round 1: Ch 2, DC 20 times evenly around the armhole. (20 DC)

Round 2: Ch 2, DC Dec in same stitch and next stitch, DC in each of next 16 Stitches, DEc over last 2 stitches (18 DC)

Round 3: Ch 2, DC Dec in same stitch and next stitch, DC in each of next 14 Stitches, DEc over last 2 stitches (16 DC)

Round 4: Ch 2, DC Dec in same stitch and next stitch, DC in each of next 14 Stitches, DEc over last 2 stitches (14 DC)

Round 5-8: Ch 2, DC in same stitch and in each stitch around

* Repeat for an additional 2 rows for a longer sleeve.

 

Repeat for second sleeve.

 

Hood:

This is made in 2 sides that are then joined together.

 

First Side:

Join with slip stitch to the first of the 34 unjoined stitches at the top.

Row 1: Ch 2, DC in Same stitch and in each of the next 9 stitches, 2 DC over the corner where the front and back panels meet, DC in the next 7 Stitches, Turn (19 DC Total)

Row 2: Ch 2, DC in Same stitch and and in each stitch across, Turn (19 DC Total)

Row 3: Ch 2, DC in Same stitch and and in each stitch across, Turn (19 DC Total)

Row 4: Ch 2, Decrease DC in Same stitch and Next DC, DC in Same stitch and in Each Stitch Across (18 Stitches Total)

Row 5: Ch 2 DC in same stitch and in each of the next 15, DC Decrease over last 2 Stitches (17 Stitches Total)

 

Row 6: Ch 2, Decrease DC in Same stitch and Next DC, DC in Same stitch and in Each Stitch Across (16 Stitches Total)

Row 7: : Ch 2 DC in same stitch and in each of the next 15, DC Decrease over last 2 Stitches (17 Stitches Total)

Row 8: Ch 2, Decrease DC in Same stitch and Next DC, DC in Same stitch and in Each Stitch Across (14 Stitches Total)

Row 9: CH 2, DC in same stitch and in each stitch across. Finish off, leaving a long tail for stitching.

 

Second Side:

Flip the Robe and repeat the first side.

Stitch the two sides of the hood together from the top to the neck.

 

Belt:

I made a simple belt repeating rows of 2 DC. You can make the belt as long as you choose to. I did 96 rows.  You can make belt loops or stitch the center of the belt to the center of the back of the robe to keep it in place.

 

Finishing:

Fold the first few rows of the hood back and cuff the sleeves.
