There is nothing more comfortable knitted things. Especially this concerns sweaters and jumpers, made by own hands. Such things can be a great gift. So, a knitted sweater is a great surprise for a beloved man, dad or brother for the New Year or February 23.
Men's Cardigan: knitting technology
First of all, it is worth considering the knitting mechanism. Knowing him, you can knit any jumper without a description. To begin, select the thread. Usually used yarn of medium thickness. You can knit and thin, but then the work will be delayed for a long time. Thick yarn (up to 150 m. Per 100 g.) Is not recommended - the finished product will be too bulky and inconvenient to wear.
As for the composition of the thread, for spring jumpers it is worth choosing cotton. Winter option - wool or its mixture with acrylic. Mixed wool yarn is preferable for people who do not tolerate the prickly texture of thread.
Jumper can be knit in a circle. In this case, you will need 2 sets of knitting needles. Big things often knit on circular. There is nothing complicated about it. The advantage is the lack of a seam. The main thing to note the first loop marker ring. It can be replaced with a normal pin. To knit cuffs on the sleeves need stocking spokes. Their size should be slightly less circular. This will tie the gum tighter.
Most patterns start knitting from the bottom up. On the circular needles dial the required number of loops, which are closed in a ring. Some models provide gum below. Therefore, it is also necessary to use circular needles that are smaller than the main ones. Men's sweaters often knit right without additional waist tapering. After that, they have armholes for the sleeves, shoulder bevels and neck.
Also, jumpers knit and individual parts. In this case, choose straight needles. Circular can also be used without closing the knitting. After the parts are completed, the assembly of the product begins. It stitch knit stitch on the sides and along the shoulder bevels. Then the sleeves are stitched. After that, they are inserted into the armholes. In the end you need to tie the collar around the neck.
