  • Detail of a carnival costume.

90% of success is threads

How to choose threads for knitting

Since this is a child model, the choice of yarn should be approached especially responsibly. It is better if it is natural fiber. Do not worry: you need only about 130 g for a baby's jacket, so you should not save money on quality. They should be soft, strong, elastic. That is, choose from:

  • mohair;
  • wool and wool mixture;
  • cashmere;
  • angora;
  • toffee

In addition, there are a number of points that will have to pay attention:

  • the thickness of the thread, as well as the amount needed to complete the pattern. If you knit a product with sleeves for fall-winter, then mohair or angora is exactly what you need;
  • yarn quality. The color of the thread should be uniform over the entire length. The only exception is blend yarn;
  • features of care. It is more difficult to care for natural yarn, if only because it will have to be washed manually.

Even the most beautiful and functional clothes are “lost” if they are made incorrectly or mistakenly combined. As for the bolero, the choice of model depends on the thread. So, if we are talking about a warm thing, then it is better to knit cashmere, angora and mohair. Summer models do not necessarily have to be knitted from natural yarn - fine acrylic will do just fine.

As for the style, for the cold season it is better that the bolero is not too “in the hole” and without a fastener. But for the summer, on the contrary, the threads are chosen thinner, and the pattern is more “flying”.
