In our age of rapid development of computer technology, manual work, including crocheting, is becoming increasingly in demand. How to explain this? After all, today without any problems you can buy in the store any necessary thing: from a napkin to a bedspread. Why spend a lot of time and effort, tying, say, a woven mat?
Everything is extremely simple. Crocheted things are unique, something like this is difficult to create in any other way. Airy dresses, lightweight shawls, openwork tops look fresh and feminine, especially if they are knitted from floral motifs.
What is a knit crochet motif?
Today, there are quite a number of knitting methods: from the simplest to the most complex. In this article we will talk more about the technique that allows you to create light openwork things - about the continuous knitting. At the sight of a product made in such a technique, an inexperienced person has the impression that, in the process of its creation, individual motifs were made and then linked to each other.
But the name speaks for itself: during knitting the thread does not break, and the pattern is formed thanks to a special technique. Agree that it is quite tedious to knit a large number of motifs, hide the end of the thread and connect all the motifs among themselves. Knitting crochet easily solves all the problems mentioned and also saves time. Another important point: if something went wrong, the product can always be dissolved and tied up.
But in fairness it should be noted that this type of knitting is not for beginning craftswomen, as it is not quite easy to figure out the patterns.
There are a lot of schemes for unseparated knitting, and in order to make the desired product, you need to begin to understand the nuances of a particular pattern. By the way, a lot of ideas can be found in Japanese knitting magazines (they are freely available on the Internet).
Naturally, there is no single rule for all patterns. But we will try to hold a small general master class for beginners to master the continuous knitting technique.
Knit light scarf: master class
By the way, knitters who are just starting to master this technique, it is best to start with small and not very complex products. Try to tie, for example, a small light scarf.
General principles of knitting in a detached way:
- The first motif is not fully complemented, that is, we do not completely knit its last row and turn to knitting the second.
- To do this, without breaking the thread, we knit a chain of air loops and knit the second motif.
- In the process of knitting, the second motive joins the first, and its last row is also not fully linked up and we proceed to the third one.
- We continue this sequence of actions according to the pattern of the pattern that you have chosen for yourself.
Models from Japanese magazines
As mentioned above, a large variety of schemes and models of clothing, made in the technique of unseparated knitting, can be found in magazines of Japanese publishers.
Such schemes are quite convenient for several reasons:
- they indicate the sequence of knitting motifs;
- very convenient to navigate by color notation.
Of course, there are drawbacks: a detailed description of the sequence of work is given, of course, in Japanese (sometimes with an English translation). But even without knowledge of foreign languages, any experienced craftswoman will be able to figure out such schemes. In addition, the legend is not much different from the usual to us.
Consider a detailed description of the model from Japanese journals on the example of a specific scheme.
The sequence of work:
- We start knitting with motive number 1, which is located in the lower left corner (from the middle of the motive indicated in blue in the scheme).
- Next, knit everything that is indicated on the diagram in black.
- Successively proceed to the knitting of the next motive (in the diagram, it is designated by the number 2). To do this, we knit several air transition loops (in the diagram, they are marked in blue).
- We knit again everything that is marked in black, etc.
What can be connected in a detached way?
Technique motifs in a continuous manner allows you to knit and light openwork, and fairly dense canvas, monochromatic and color. In general, the flight of fantasy of the craftswoman is not limited to any frames! Observing the sequence of tying up individual motifs and strictly following the pattern, you will get an original and rather nontrivial thing. Today, using unseparated knitting techniques, they create not only blankets, tippets, shawls, scarves, but also light sundresses, dresses, skirts, tops, ponchos, and even coats. Agree, you would hardly have decided to create a large thing from individual motifs, knowing full well that it would be necessary not only to knit each small motif and cut the thread, but then also to connect them into a single canvas. The task is rather laborious and laborious.
Swimsuits, underwear and peignoirs connected in a non-separable way are becoming increasingly popular: it turns out very beautiful and exclusive!
So, from the foregoing it follows that the technique of unseparated crochet is a great way to create original products, a great option to spend time, a kind of therapy from the routine work and stress that our life so abounds with. And with what you can compare the feeling of satisfaction from a beautiful little thing, created by yourself! For these reasons, crocheting will never lose its relevance and relevance.
