One of such products can be a plaid crochet of squares, the knitting scheme of which is not particularly difficult and is available even to a beginning needlewoman.
Crocheting a plaid with a square crochet implies the observance of some rules:
- The basic rule of knitting is that the squares are the same size. To do this, use a measuring tape.
- When choosing threads for knitting, pay attention to their structure and thickness. For a 90 × 140 cm plaid, up to 1700 g of yarn is required.
- Use threads of several shades - this will give your product originality.
- Novice needlewomen better crochet number 4 or 5.
- If you knit a blanket for a child, choose natural yarns from cotton and wool.
- Ornaments can be knitted in a straight line or in a circle. When knitting in a straight line on a chain of the required number of air loops, we knit columns with or without single crochets. At the end of each row, turn the product and so knit to obtain a square. You can use yarn in different colors. When knitting in a circle, the initial air loops close into a ringlet and knit the columns in a spiral. The square shape is obtained by adding air loops in the estimated corners of the square.
- Measure the length of the side of the squares and count the required number of squares to get the desired size of rug.
- Finish the finished squares and prepare them for stitching, do not forget to choose the color transition for your rug.
- When stitching squares with a needle, the seam will be almost imperceptible if their last rows are knitted in the same way and in one color.
- Crochet all stitched blanks with a thread of a contrasting color - this will give your product a finished look.
