Experienced craftswomen knit a thing by eye. We saw it, liked it, sat down and tied it up. For those who are just starting to knit, it is best to use a pattern. To knit a jacket according to the scheme is an easy task. The main thing is to read this description correctly. And, of course, choose the right size for your model.
It is necessary
- knitting needles;
Before starting work, you need to decide on the model of the jacket that you want to knit. Size is also important. It's easier to immediately select a description that is suitable for your size, so that you do not have to worry about calculating how many loops to add, how many to subtract. When you decide, open the diagram and examine it carefully. As a rule, it is made in the form of certain patterns. If you know how to "read" them, then there will be no problems with knitting.
So, all the patterns in the diagram are repeated in the order in which the loops on your knitted fabric should change. All drawings and pattern repetitions are also reflected in the diagram. It is a rectangle diagram that is divided into cells. Horizontal rows mean the loops that are needed for the set, vertical rows - the number of rows on which the pattern is placed. Inside this diagram, there are symbols for how these loops should be knitted. All badges have their own meaning, which is very important when knitting. So, for example, facial loops on the diagram are indicated by a plus sign.
Knitting a sweater according to the scheme is quite simple. First you need to follow the text instructions, which describes how many loops and in what way you need to dial. Then read there how to continue knitting, at what height to start making patterns and what pattern to look at when knitting a particular pattern. Do not be afraid of pictures on the diagram that seem incomprehensible. In fact, underneath each diagram, there is usually a transcript of what each symbol means. So, reading the diagram step by step, you can knit a sweater.
The technique of knitting a sweater according to the pattern, but already crocheted, is, in principle, also simple. Only here there are no front and back loops, but only air loops, on which all knitting is based. The diagram also begins with a description of how many loops need to be cast and where which patterns will be located. Below the figure, you will see the legend for each symbol. And in the same way, reading these symbols, you can easily knit any item of clothing.
