Tip 1: Contact Plaid

To tie plaid, select the appropriate model, which can be found in any magazine or a book devoted to knitting.

achieve the desired size of the future can be plaid traditional way of adding or subtraction of several loops or entire series, as well as to add or skip unnecessary squares.To adjust the settings you need to take a different yarn weights or use a different number of spokes.In the calculations, it should be remembered, and the number of loops for the border.

Typically, plaid knit as a sheet, so before you start you need to make sure that the product appearance was neat.

  1. It must be remembered that the wrong side of your rug will also be visible.Therefore preferable to use two-way binding that will look good on both sides.

  2. In order to give your product a neat appearance, you can sew along the edge of the finished blanket.

  3. new string is added at the point where it can be hidden - on the edge.

  4. Elegant lining tissue becomes very practical decoration of any rug.

There are several ways to tie a blanket: squares, stripes and parts or fragments of whole cloth.If you decide to knit a plaid cloth, is knit in two directions on long circular needles, which can accommodate a large number of loops.To ensure a level surface of the web can be a special border - you can dial with the main blade or just on the edge, when your product is ready.

Plaid, comprising several individual fragments can be knit on the go, or share it on the production of a couple of people.In this method, constituents of the rug are knitted separately and then combine them into a single web.To connect the fragments can be used contrasting thread.The assembly is carried out in three ways:

  1. traditional seam is used for knitting sweaters.

  2. hooks - without the addition of a column and polustolbikom.

  3. decorative seam, for example - over the edge, zig-zag stitch.

Wet processing plaid - the best method to create the desired shape pieces of knitting and align their edges.However, not all types of yarn is applied wet processing.

In wet processing without the use of iron, a blanket attached to a flat surface of conventional pins - so he will take the desired shape.The product shall be dry.Related plaid iron is not necessary, otherwise the loop can lose prominence.

Tip 2: How to tie spokes plaid

Handmade items are always appreciated higher than store bought, especially if the mistress puts them in his soul.This postulate applies to the blanket, which is easily able to relate to the spokes of a novice.
The simplest pattern plaid - this alternation right and wrong loops
you need
  • - circular or regular knitting needles;
  • - several thick skeins of yarn of different colors, or;
  • - line;
  • - hook.
Before use to determine the size of the future product.The standard ratio is 1.6 to 2 m. If you want the edge of the blankets covered armrests and hung from the sofa, then these parameters are added to 30 cm. Spokes recruited about 50 loops of which fit in a sample length of 10 cm. It is necessaryto find a value such as the number of loops per centimeter.Then you can calculate how much will have to dial loops to get the edge to 1.6 m. For example, of the 50 loops turned 20 cm. Divide the first number by the second and get 2.25 Loop 1 cm. That is 1.6m is 2.25 multiplied by 160 - is 360 loops.
The simplest designs are the garter and checkerboard.We do not recommend a blanket knit facial loops, because the edges are bent inward.Garter is an alternation of right and wrong number on the one hand, that is, facial loop knit one row and turning the product, perform the opposite direction as facial loops.Checkerboard is diversified one of the rectangles.For example, in the first row to alternate 5 loops face and reverse, and then continue the series in Figure 6, and 7th - loop change.
to work to purchase a circular needle on the line, as in this case do not have to interconnect small parts.Optionally knit one color, you can alternate between skeins, combining several shades of the same color or contrasting colors.If the product is done in garter stitch, then on the front side of the strip will turn out flat, while the back - blurred.The checkerboard pattern, both parties will have the same.Dialing order of 300-350 loops, it is necessary, following the sequence of right and wrong and loops alternating color, full-length knit plaid.The ends of the various skeins better connect on the edge, since the nodes will be seen less and partially hidden fringe.
If instead of circular needle used ordinary pair, plaid will consist of a plurality of squares that are sewn together hook.Their pattern may be different, it will give additional texture of the product as a patchwork.Moreover, if all the parts are connected facial pattern, the interleave them in normal and inverted position plaid will be a big checkerboard.The edges of the elements podgibayutsya in one direction, which in the future would be wrong.The edge is tied hook, it is possible to add a fringe of chopped strands.
