How to knit crochet openwork patterns
Knitting as such and, in particular, its type - crochet - perhaps the most famous and old needlework, which arose simultaneously with the invention of yarn. For many centuries, invented a great many diverse knitting techniques for every taste and type of product. The choice of a particular one depends on the personal preferences of the master and the characteristics of the model, be it a sweater, a hat, a dress, a scarf, or even socks.
Is it hard?
The knitting process is not so complicated, but it requires precision, accuracy and ability to concentrate attention. If all of the above you can not afford - for knitting is better not to take. Thanks to her sense of purpose and perseverance, the needlewoman gradually masters the skill, learns to knit quickly, her confidence in the successful result of the work grows. But the result often depends not only on skill, but also on the materials used in the work.
Another important factor is the individual knitting style: some knit loosely, others have a more dense knit.
Not everyone has the patience to knit, but crocheting, according to many needlewomen, is easier and more interesting to work. In addition, crocheted things come out remarkably light, openwork, airy! They are extraordinarily beautiful and often very original.
Many especially love to knit children. A variety of styles of children's knitted things just mesmerizing! Summer outfits are especially good for the youngest in light pastel colors.
In summer, light openwork clothes made with a regular hook are especially relevant. It is a fallacy that knitwear is suitable only for winter.

Also, almost all kids will need a panama summer to protect the head from the sun's ultraviolet. Such panama women easily and quickly knit from thin light yarn with any openwork pattern.

Crocheted openwork patterns are perhaps the most common.They are performed easier than it seems at first glance. It is required only to add air loops to the usual canvas from the columns, and then we will get the most different, sometimes extraordinarily beautiful crochet openwork patterns. Because of them, the canvas will immediately acquire a special decoration.
Openwork patterns: crochet
Amazingly, all the variety of existing patterns is performed on the basis of just a few basic elements, which craftswomen vary countless times. The main thing when tying up endless recurring motifs is accuracy and attentiveness. A lightly lacy canvas, made carelessly, will immediately show all the mistakes, superfluous (or, on the contrary, missing loops), uneven knitting.
What are these basic elements that make up all the crochet openwork patterns? This is the so-called air loop, classic single crochet column and single or multiple single crochet columns. Separate motifs are made from them - a square, round, diamond-shaped form, which are then joined into a continuous canvas. Relief, jacquard, thin lace and openwork crochet patterns are possible, the schemes of which are sometimes quite complicated, especially for inexperienced needlewomen. They can be multicolored, in the form of shells and in the form of a grid - the choice is very, very large.
Crochet openwork patterns are obtained by alternating air loops with columns with different numbers of nakida. They look best in summer clothes made from flax, cotton, bamboo, light mixed yarn. They can knit thin hats, hats, Panama, berets, as well as blouses, pullovers, boleros and jackets.
To master such knitting, you need to know and be able to perform all three types of loops. What exactly?
- Air loop (in the diagrams it is indicated by a circle) - we insert a hook into the loop, we throw a thread over it and draw it through the loop. In descriptions it is possible to meet its abbreviated designation - vp or VP. The loop, which at each moment of knitting is on the hook, is called working and is not included in the chain.
- Column without nakida. It is denoted either with a plus sign (cross) in the diagrams, or with a vertical stick. Abbreviated - st.b.n. They knit by inserting a hook into the previous loop (or into the bottom row), pulling out a new one, grabbing the thread and tying together both loops that are on the hook.
- Double crochet (in the diagrams its designation looks like a crossed stick), abbreviated as st.sn. How to knit it? It is necessary to throw the thread on the hook, enter it into the lower loop, then, stretching a new one, knit three loops formed on the hook in two steps in pairs.Similarly, tied with the posts and with a large number of nakidov.
