We continue presenting you with knitting patterns.Having mastered some complex knitting patterns , you can now knit absolutely astonishing individual articles of clothing.You need to take clothing pattern, knit the pattern sample, and calculate the required number of stitches.
On the drawing pattern, mark the number of stitches you need to cast on, add, or detract.Then, you can start knitting, which is one of the most delightful handcrafts.Next, we will learn about 3 cable-stitch types knitted with needles.
Stitches transfer technique
In order to knit the cable-stitch pattern with needles, we need to master the stitches transfer technique.What is the stitches transfer technique?
This means that the order of the knitting of stitch groups needs to be swapped in the course of knitting.Usually, this is performed over an even number of stitch groups. If it consists of four or more stitches, an extra needle will be needed to take on the number of stitches required for the transfer.The cable-stitch weaving direction depends on how you arrange and transfer the stitch groups.If the left stitch is knitted under the right one, the front cable-stitch arc will go to the left.On the other hand, if a left stitch is knitted over the right one, the cable-stitch will weave to the right.
Knitting patterns: cable-stitch 1
In order to weave this pattern, you need to cast on a number of stitches which is a multiple of 12, plus 2 additional stitches for the pattern symmetry, and 2 more edge stitches.
The cable-stitch pattern consists of 2 by 4 stitches weaved with knits against purls.For convenience, we'll knit the pattern from the inside.For a fragment which consists of a single braid, cast on 14 stitches.Then, knit following the scheme, where | is a knit and - is a purl, are transferred stitches.
The scheme of a pattern fragment:
Knitting patterns: cable-stitch with elongated stitches
For such a pattern, cast on to the needles the total stitches number which is a multiple of 11, and add 3 stitches for symmetry, and 2 edge stitches.Knitting techniques: knits and purls, elongated stitches.
Row 1.Make 3 knits and a single purl.Make * 7 run-ons in a row, then a single purl*. Repeat this sequence 6 times.Finish the pattern fragment with 1 purl and 3 knits.
Rows 2, 4 and 6.Turn over the work.Knit 3 purls and a single knit.* Transfer 7 run-ons to the left needle and make 1 knit* repeat it 6 times.Make 1 knit and 3 purls.
Rows 3 and 5.Turn over the work.Make 3 knits and a single purl.* Transfer 7 run-ons to the left needle, make 1 knit* repeat it 6 times.Finish the pattern fragment with 1 purl and 3 knits.
At the 5th row, take the knitting hook and pull all six long stitches, made of run-ons, as a single stitch through the sixth row, according to the pattern.
Then repeat the knitting from 1 to 6 row.
Knitting patterns: a braid
In order to create this pattern, which seemsdifficult at a first glance, we need to cast on the number of stitches which is a multiple of 24 and add 2 more edge stitches.
Knitting techniques: knits and purls, 3 by 3 stitches transfer.The pattern consists of interwoven stitch pairs.On the pattern scheme | is a knit, - is a purl, are transferred stitches.
Carefully follow along the pattern, watching for weaving sequences: on the diagram the weaving direction is indicated in red.
