In the article you will learn knitting techniques using knitting needles and hooks. Let's get started
Knitting for beginners
Want a knitted hat? No funds to buy? Do not worry, but tie yourself! It will take free time, knitting needles and yarn. After reading the material, get down to work. In a week, a knitted headwear will appear in the wardrobe.
- To get started, select the needles. The market offers knitting needles in an assortment of sizes and types that define the appearance of the eyelets.
- I recommend using the spokes of the fourth number. Although, thin knitting needles allow you to tie a hat. Even better, circular needles are suitable for solving the problem.
- Alternatively, use double-sided knitting needles, but I find them more suitable for knitting socks and small items. Therefore, the circular needles - the best solution.
- Without a crochet hook can not do. He will be required at the end to complete the work.
- Choose yarn. If you knit a hat for the first time, give preference to thick threads. It is easier to work with them, and you will connect them faster.
Needles are, yarn purchased, it's time to start knitting hats. First, measure the circumference of the head. The stage is extremely important because the number of dialed loops determines the size of the cap. Here is a detailed video on knitting hats with knitting needles.
Let's imagine that you are going to knit a hat and give to a loved one. Remember, the average head circumference is 61 centimeters.
It does not hurt to tie the sample and count the number of loops that fit in a centimeter of canvas. So determine the number of loops you need to create the base.
I will give advice. In the end will have to turn down the loop. To facilitate the task, I recommend rounding the number to a multiple of eight. And since the yarn is stretched, round to a smaller number. I hope this is clear. Its time to begin.
- First dial the loop. The formula described above will help. After the loop, join in a circle. Using circular knitting needles to make it easy. Dial the loops carefully and carefully, as the tangled loops are not subject to correction and the canvas will have to be dismissed, and the work will start over again.
- Continue knitting. From time to time, try on the cap to determine the number of rows. The use of circular needles contributes to the creation of wrapping edges. Therefore, knit a little longer, otherwise calculate the length of the product will not work.
- When the base cap is ready, begin to decrease. Using pins, mark every eight loops. For a few loops before the pin, take one loop off. Turning off the loops in each row, you will notice that the size of the cap is reduced. Customize knitting needles. It will not affect the quality and appearance of the product. As a result, there will be four loops, and the work will come to an end.
- At the end you will need a hook or darning needle.. Pull the yarn through the remaining loops to complete the job. To fasten the top of the head, pull the tip of the thread to the wrong side and use a hook to pull it over the top of the cap. It remains to cut the thread and sew the product with a needle to disguise the seam and increase strength.
At first glance, the procedure is time consuming, but it is an illusion. The hardest thing to choose is the color of the yarn. There will be no problem with this, as knitted fashion will help in the matter.
Crocheting is not less interesting than knitting, although the techniques are different. Crocheted products are more elegant and delicate. At the same time, knitting needles allow you to tie warm things.
As practice shows, in the wardrobe of a woman who wants to become fashionable, there are knitted hats. Therefore, continuing the topic of the article, I will tell you how to crochet a hat.
Tool selection and schematics
Yarn is required to create a knitted headdress. The specialized shop sells synthetic and natural yarns of various thickness, texture and color.
Next, select the hook. This will help the information indicated on the label thread. Manufacturers indicate which hook number is best to use. I recommend picking up a work tool empirically. To do this, link several samples. If the tool provides a comfortable work, then everything is fine. Otherwise, select a larger or smaller product.
Regarding the material from which the knitting tool is made, be guided by preferences. Metal hooks are too heavy, and the plastic version is deformed. Choose based on knit density and weight.
A few words about the search for drawings and diagrams. The scheme will need to work. If you are looking for her, then you have an idea about crocheting. Therefore, I will not consider technical issues. You can find the idea of a cap and a detailed scheme in print publications and on websites. Any of the sources will offer a variety of schemes. True, they are usually focused on needlewomen who have mastered the art of knitting.
Having found the scheme, carefully study and then start work.Sometimes there are varieties of loops on the diagram that have not been encountered. Search for information about them.
- Dial a chain of air loops. If you do not know how to determine their number, re-read the first part of the article, where we knitted a hat with needles. To get the last loop loop loop with the first loop.
- Knit with double crochet. The height of the first block of columns should be eight centimeters. Reduce the number of loops gradually. To do this, through eight loops, connect two loops into one. The height of the canvas, made in this way, should be three centimeters.
- Loops diminish through three loops. To make the product fit, after two centimeters, begin abruptly to reduce the hinges, otherwise the cap will turn out in the form of a gnome's cap. First knit two loops together, and then three.
- Knit until there is one loop. Tighten well and trim the tip of the thread with scissors. Decorate the finished product with pompoms or flowers linked by air loops. To have a hat with a fluffy rim, tie the first three rows of loops with a "straw".
If knitting is your hobby, and fashionable things are a weakness, you can do your favorite thing and update your wardrobe with fashionable things. As a result, the image will be relevant without significant financial investments, which is important.
How to tie a hat with ears
It is difficult to dispute the fact that a knitted hat with ears protects and warms the head even in windy and cold weather. It is enough to wear such a hat, and the ears will not freeze. I think you guessed it would be about knitting hats with ears.
To make the finished product light, warm and versatile, I recommend using wool yarn. I will tell the technology of knitting children's hats, since it is children who need protection and warmth more. Parents need to take care of their health.
If you intend to make a hat for your little son, I recommend knitting blue snowflakes. For girls fit shades of pink.
To create a headgear, you need a yarn of white color, a thread of pink or blue shade. Do not do without stocking spokes of the third and fourth numbers. The basis of the mating is the front surface.
- Type in the spokes of the third number of one hundred loops using a white main thread.Hinges dial with a cruciform dial. First 34 rows knit with a rubber band.
- Go to the spokes of the fourth number and tie a dozen rows with the main thread. If you do not know, a dozen means twelve. Then knit a twenty-one row pattern called "Snowflake" using a colored thread.
- Tie four rows with the main thread and divide the knitting into two parts. There are three snowflakes in front, and two behind. After the cap sew knit stitches.
- Came the turn to endow the hat with ears. Use 27 stitches as the main thread, after the elastic band, knit four rows. Start with the face loop.
- In the next row make a decrease at the beginning and at the end. Continue to knit until three loops remain on the needles. Then knit thirty centimeters with a rubber band and close the loop. It remains to decorate the head dress with pompoms.
My method is to use blue or pink yarn. You can use other threads to find out what color is in fashion this year.
The technology is also suitable for knitting adult hats, as they are fashionable and relevant. However, the number of loops mentioned above will be different.You already know the formula for calculating the amount.
Needlework is a way to show care and love to a loved one, and knitting is a cure for stress. As for knitted clothes, it allows a woman to demonstrate to her friends the skill, to provide comfort and coziness during winter walks.
How to choose the right yarn
The final part of the article is devoted to the choice of yarn. The cost of the threads offered by the market is almost the same. Therefore, to choose on this basis is meaningless.
Pay attention to the composition, since synthetic threads are often present in the yarn. This is sure to take into account, especially if you knit a thing for the child.
Make sure that the threads are natural, easy. Take a piece of yarn and burn it. After the natural yarn will remain a pile of ashes. If synthetic is present in the yarns, instead of an ash hill, a hard ball is formed.
Choose the thread carefully, because not all yarn is suitable for creating a specific product. To make it clear, I will introduce the characteristics of natural threads.
- Wool yarn keeps warm and is suitable for knitting winter clothes: dresses, skirts, gloves, sweaters, scarves.Such threads are elastic and light, but are covered with lumps and roll.
- The composition of half-woolen threads includes synthetics. This yarn is more resistant to wear. Wool blend yarn is used to create knitted clothes. The main thing that the products are not worn by children up to two years.
- Linen yarn is a version of summer clothes: dresses, sundresses, t-shirts. Linen thread is hygienic and does not irritate the skin.
- Yarn with a nap is suitable for creating bulk winter clothing that is not worn on a naked body. We are talking about jackets and pullovers, under which are T-shirts or T-shirts.
- Cotton yarn is inelastic, dense and heavy material, devoid of warming qualities. To create summer outfits best suited as it provides a cooling effect. Additionally, cotton is not afraid of the sun, and even bright outfits for a long time retain their original color.
- As for silk yarn, it is practical and retains heat. For the creation of winter clothing is not suitable, but for knitting autumn outfits that thing. It is not subject to deformation and absorbs moisture.
All that remains is to set aside time and start creating warm and comfortable apparel for yourself or your relatives. Good luck in knitting.
