Extremely simple in execution, the original openwork can be obtained using a hook and a thick knitting needle for knitting at the same time. Looking at the pattern, the uninitiated are unlikely to guess that it is connected on the basis of simple columns. The technique is elementary, the pattern report allows you to do without a diagram. Having knitted just one row, it will be clear how to proceed. The knitting itself not only looks perfect, but also does not lose its shape. Due to the firm fixation, the pattern will not stretch even over time. This allows it to be used for openwork inserts or trimmings. Knitting is also suitable for shawls, vests, creating accessories, interior decor.
For work you will need:
- yarn, selected taking into account the purpose of the product and seasonality
- thick knitting needle (can be replaced with a pen body or ruler)
- hook (we choose the size taking into account the thickness of the yarn)
The work begins with a set of a chain, the length of which is a multiple of 3 links.
The work begins with knitting a column, with the difference that the closing loop is pulled and pushed onto the knitting needle.
Having grabbed the working thread, we begin to knit the next column, pull the loop again and put it on the knitting needle. Then we tighten the working thread.
By the end of the row, there are as many loops on the knitting needle as there were in the chain.
Carefully remove the loops from the knitting needle. You shouldn't worry about it. Due to the peculiarities of knitting, they simply cannot bloom spontaneously.
The next row consists of regular posts. They are knitted under the arch, resulting from the combination of 3 elongated loops.
In the next row and all even ones behind it (if it is decided to knit an openwork fabric), the columns end in elongated loops.
Having reached the end of the row, the loops are completely removed from the knitting needle, and the canvas is turned over. If the chain is long, you can remove the finished loops from the knitting needle as it is filled, in fact, knit a row in several stages.
