Complete free written pattern to make this cute Elvis Onsie! - Ad free PDF available too!


Y’all – I saw this post floating around the other day of a little baby dressed up in a crochet Elvis jumpsuit! I went to search high and low for a pattern and I’ll be damned – I couldn’t find one. I thought surely there has to be one out there!

There wasn’t!  So I just had to whip one up.  I really hope you enjoy this cute pattern.  If you love this, please share with a friend (sharing is caring) <3.

One of my customers finished her pattern and sent me this picture today!  It’s so adorable, I’m dying!  <3 <3 <3

Here is a version one of my testers made.  Isn’t it cute!?  Keep in mind, the pattern is written for a newborn – so it is small – the video describes how and where to make increases for larger babies :).

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

Suggested yarn:  I used 100% Cotton in I Love This Cotton from Hobby Lobby, but Lion brand makes a great cotton too called 24/7 cotton – you can find that here on Amazon for $4.66 – that’s a discount!

Yardage:

This took about a little over 1 skein, so about 220 yards in I love this Cotton – Lion Brand 24/7 has 186 yards (170m) per skein, so you will need more if you use this yarn.

Sizing:

The pattern is written for newborn – with instructions on how to size for 1 – 2 months, 3 – 6 months & 7 – 12 months!

Difficulty:

EASY – BEGINNER!!

Yarn Weight:

Measurements:

If you follow the pattern – measurements are:
Length: 15” (38cm)
Arms: L 4.5-5” (12cm-13cm)
Legs: L 5” (13cm)
Belt: L 16.5” (42cm)

Of course, making increases will change the measurements.



The PDF includes two files – one with photos and one with just written instructions.

I’m happy to help with any questions, please leave a comment here and I’ll do my best to help you work the pattern.

This was super fun to make and fairly fast too!  I found some jewels my daughter had laying around and used them to embellish it a bit.  You can get creative and do what you want! <3.

Tips

  • Pattern is worked pieces and sewn together. Main body, legs, arms, belt and belt buckle.
  • Leave long tails for help with weaving in and sewing pieces together.
  • Embellishments are your preference suggestions at end of pattern 😊.

Instructions

***

Chains do not count as stitches.  dc’s are made in same as ch space.  Joins are made in first dc of round (not chain).  Decreases – space them evenly on decrease rows.

Use I hook – unless otherwise indicated.

Up-sizing for Legs:

To make larger and taller, add 2-6 stitches to the foundation chain for width, and 2 to 6 rows on round 2 to increase height

***

Legs (make 2):

Rnd 1:                  fdc 27, join.

Rnd 2:                  ch 2, dc entire round, join (26)

Rnd 3:                  Repeat 2.

Rnd 4:                  ch 2, dc entire round dec 4 times, join.

Rnd 5:                  Repeat 4.

Rnd 6:                  ch 2, dc entire round, join

Rnd 7-8:              Repeat 6.

Cut and weave in tails you will join later using a different technique.

 

Arms (make 2):

Up-sizing for Arms:

To make wider and longer, add 2-6 stitches to the foundation chain for width, and 2 to 6 rows on round 2 to increase length.

 

Rnd 1:                    fdc 18, join.

Rnds 2 -5:             ch 2, dc entire round, join.

Rnds 6 – 8:            H Hook – ch 2, dc entire round, join.

Leave 10”-12” tail for weaving arms to body.

Body:

Sizing:

To make wider and longer, add 2-6 sts to the foundation chain for width, and 2 to 6 rows on round 2 to increase length.

Row 1:                   fdc 46.

Row 2:                   ch 2, turn, dc entire row.

Rows 3 -9:            Repeat 2.

Front side 1:

***

After finishing the body, don’t cut yarn, continuing working your first side as follows.

Count 13 stitches in from each end of body and place stitch marker in the 13 stitch (this count will vary if you made this garment wider – if you modified the size, lay the body flat, fold both sides into the center.  Mark the folds with stitch markers on both sides.  This is where you will begin to attach the legs on either sides)

Sizing:

If you increased the width, you will need to modify where you place your stitch markers.  Counts will vary.  The front side 1 & 2 will rely on your increases

***

Rows 10 – 17:            Ch 2, turndc 12.

Break yarn and weave in tails.

Center:

***

After completing one side – insert hook into stitch marker, join yarn, ch 2 and turn.  Work first row all the way over to second stitch marker, remove marker and work stitch into that space, you’ve now completed row 10.

***

Row 11 – 17:                dc 22, ch 2, turn.

Front side 2:

***

Insert hook in stitch closest to where the center piece ends, join yarn and chain 2 (for the following rows, chain 2 and turn at the beginning of each row – of course 😉.)

***

Rows 10 – 17:            dc 12 in each row.

This is what it should like

Torso & Attaching Legs:

video help here: https://youtu.be/Zq5YocpgkbY

***

With H hook and bottom up (side with no slits) insert hook in top loop of first dc on *your* right (while looking at it), join yarn and chain 2).

***

Row 1:  dc 12.  Then in the 13th stitch (or approximately where if you follow the V down and it meets the bottom), attach the leg by completing the last step of the dc by inserting the hook through the top two loops of the leg stitch, and drawing back through *all* the loops on the hook.  Repeat that for 8 sts of the leg. (meaning, you begin your dc stitch by yo, inserting hook into body, yo draw through two, insert hook into top two loops of leg, yo, draw through all loops on hook).

***

If you made your legs wider, these counts will be off slightly.  Work the join until your leg lays flat with the body.

***

Continue row with dc’s in next 7 sts (or however many you need to make these leg joins even).  In the 8th stitch, begin attaching leg.  Work 8 joins by repeating how we did it for the other leg, which is dc’ing into each stitch and completing the last step of the dc by inserting hook into top two loops of leg stitch, yo and draw back through *all* loops on hook.  To finish this row, complete last 12 sts in dc.

To complete attaching legs to front of suit – fold over right and left pieces until they meet in the center (see video for help on this) long link- https://youtu.be/Zq5YocpgkbY 

Whip stitch the front pieces to the front of the legs

Attaching Arms:

Whip stitch V opening together from top of garment down (see video).  To get an idea of where, place the bottom of your sleeve at the base of the V opening.  Mark the top of where the sleeve meets, and stitch down to that point.  You can break off yarn, or continue with it and use that yarn to attach the rest of the sleeve.  Repeat for both sides.

Belt:

***Belt has a button hole to bring it together.***

Sizing:

To make wider and longer, add 2-6 sts to the foundation chain for width, and 2 to 6 rows on rows to increase length.

Row 1:                 fsc 51, ch 1, turn.

Row 2:                 sc entire row, ch 1, turn.

Row 3:                 sc 3, ch 2, sk 2, sc rest of row, ch 1, turn.

Row 4:                 sc entire row.

Edging:                ch 1, sc around to beg, join.

Buckle:

***Sew buckle to belt just beyond button hole***

Sizing:

To make wider and longer, add 2-6 sts to the foundation chain for width, and 2 to 6 rows on rows to increase length.

Row 1:                 fsc 14, ch 1, turn.

Row 2:                 sc entire row, ch 1, turn.

Row 3-9:             repeat 2.

Edging:                ch 1, sc around to beg, join.

Embellish!

Using little jewels you get from the craft store you can embellish however you’d like 😊.

***

Remember to use ones that will attach securely so baby cannot pick them off and eat them.  I’d recommend using the kind that attach with metal fasteners and using fabric glue

***

Congratulations!  You’re finished!
