Jacks One Piece - Free Crochet Pattern




Hello lovlies!
Back with another boys pattern. I did say I would have more! This pattern makes a super cute all in one romper. Made as instructed, it will fit a bub born at around 34/36 weeks gestation, so its also great for prems that get to go home. It is also very easy to resize with a hook and yarn change.





You will need:
5mm hook
DK (8ply) weight yarn in main and contrasting colours


1: ch38, dc in the 3rd chain from hook and the next 5 chains, (dc, ch2, dc) in the next stitch, dc in the next 5 stitches, (dc, ch2, dc) in the next stitch, dc in the next 10 stitches, (dc, ch2, dc) in the next stitch, dc in the next 5 stitches, (dc, ch2, dc) in the next stitch, dc in the last 6 stitches.

2: ch3, turn, dc in the first 7 stitches, (dc, ch2, dc) in the ch2 space, dc in the next 7 stitches, (dc, ch2, dc) in the next ch2 space, dc in the next 12 stitches, (dc, ch2, dc) in the next ch2 space, dc in the next 7 stitches, (dc, ch2, dc) in the next ch2 space, dc in the last 7 stitches.

3: ch3, turn, dc in the first 8 stitches, (dc, ch2, dc) in the ch2 space, dc in the next 9 stitches, (dc, ch2, dc) in the next ch2 space, dc in the next 14 stitches, (dc, ch2, dc) in the next ch2 space, dc in the next 9 stitches, (dc ch2, dc) in the next ch2 space, dc in the last 8 stitches

4: ch3, turn, dc in the first 9 stitches, dc in the ch2 space, ch2, skip all dc's until the next ch2 space and then dc in that, dc in the next 16 stitches, dc in the ch2 space, ch2, skip the next lot of dc's and dc into the next ch2 space, dc in the remaining 9 dc's.

5: ch2, turn, hdc in the first 9 stitches, hdc in the ch2 space, hdc2tg twice, hdc in the next 10 stitches, hdc2tg twice, hdc in the ch2 space, hdc in the last 10 stitches.

End top colour, turn piece and join bottom colour.

6: sc in the back loops only for each stitch across

7: ch3, turn, dc in each stitch across

8: ch3, turn, *dc in the next 4 stitches, 2dc in the next stitch*, repeat 6 more times

9-10: ch3, turn, dc in each stitch across

At the end of row 10 join with a slip stitch to the first dc from that row, so the next section is worked in the round.

11: ch3, dc in each stitch around, join.

Forming the crotch:

12: slst in the first 6 stitches, ch3, TURN, dc back across the same 6 stitches, dc in the starting chain, dc in the next 6 stitches (13)

13: ch3, turn, dc in each stitch across

14: ch3, turn, dc2tg twice, dc in the next 5 stitches, dc2tg twice more (9)

15: ch2, turn, hdc2tg twice, hdc, hdc2tg twice more (5)

16-17: ch1, turn, sc across.

End off.

With the back of the piece facing you, count off (to the left) 11 unused stitches from round 11, join yarn in the 12th stitch.

18: ch3, dc in the same stitch, dc in the next 8 stitches

19: ch3, turn, dc in each stitch across (9)

20: ch3, turn, dc2tg, dc in the next 5 stitches, dc2tg (7)

21-22: ch1, turn, sc across

End off yarn and weave in ends.

Buttons to be attached to the crotch and the opening in the back of the suit.

OPTIONAL SLEEVES

1: Join yarn to any stitch on arm hole, dc3 and dc in each stitch around, join.
2: ch2, hdc in each stitch around, join.
End off and repeat with the other sleeve.

OPTIONAL BOW
1: ch8, sc in the 2nd chain from hook and each across (7)
2-4: ch1, turn, sc across
Do not end yarn, instead evenly sc around the entire rectangle, making 2sc's in each corner.

End off and weave in ends.

With a long piece of yarn, pinch bow together and wrap around, pulling tight to gather. Keep wrapping bow until centre is as wide/thick as you desire. Tie off and sew bow onto the front of the suit.

  1. When starting the new micro mini little boys outfit, Jacks one piece, I had to rip out the first time I started out because Row 2 said to dc in next 7 stitches, so thinking I had miscounted, T ripped it out and started again, I even ripped out the 38 chains. But the second time I started my second row after counting and being so careful I again came up with only 6 instead of 7, I have seveb if I count the 3 stitch at beginning as one. Thanks for your help, Sharon

    1. You would need thicker yarn also. The 5mm and DK already make a quite lightweight and loose weave fabric, if you went up past a 5.5 it would be very open stitching.

  3. Hi, I work for an assisted living facility and one of our residents thinks a cabbage patch doll is her baby. I have been crocheting things for the baby and can't wait to make this little outfit. It makes her happy and I love her, so it makes me happy. Thank you for posting your patterns!

    Just wondering if I double the count of all the stitches will it work? To get a bigger size.

    1. Rows 14 and 14 are the decrease rows. dc2tg is double crochet 2 together, which is a decrease.
