To learn how to knit is easy.  Mastering the simplest techniques takes very little time, and a thing made with your own hands is especially pleasant to wear.

Beginning of knitting of the conceived product follows from the choice of the model. Modern magazines offer many ready-made diagrams and patterns, literally with step-by-step guidance. However, a beginner in knitting some schemes and designations may not be understandable, which makes the product seem excessively complicated.

So, for knitting need knitting needles and yarn. Spokes  there are different: conventional, hosiery, circular, auxiliary. Normal spokes are straight, can be of different length and diameter. The diameter of the spoke corresponds to its number, therefore, for example, the designation of "needle No. 2" should be understood as "spokes 2 mm in diameter".

Yarn for knitting  can be the most diverse. In addition to traditional woolen knitting threads, cotton yarn, silk, cashmere, mohair, angora, as well as yarn from a mixture of different fibers are also used.

When the necessary knitting needles and yarn are selected according to the chosen product model, it's time to start knitting. Knitting any product begins with a set of loops. The loops are typed on the spokes in different ways, depending on the type of edge that you want to get.

With the traditional set of loops, the loops are typed on two knitted needles and tighten as tight as the knit should be tight. By the density of knitting is meant the number of loops per unit length of the knitted fabric (usually 10 cm).

For set of hinges from the tangle otmelivaetsja thread, whose length is twice the width of the future of the web. Hold the working end of the thread on the left palm, the thread must pass through the index finger and the loop to twist the thumb. The working end of the thread and the thread coming from the ball, hold the other three fingers of the left hand. Pull the thread between thumb and index finger of the left hand, extending them.

Spread the knuckles upwards into the loop on the thumb, grab the thread from the index finger and stretch it into the loop on the thumb. Loop off the buttonhole and repeat the procedure. In the same way, continue to dial the loops until you reach the desired amount.

Remember that in the descriptions of patterns and finished products, the first and last loops are not taken into account. They are called marginal. Therefore, if it is said in the product description that it is necessary to collect 15 loops, this means that you need to type 17, but the edge loops do not participate in tying the pattern.

After the set of loops is completed, one spoke is removed, the typed loops remain on the second spoke. Now you can start loosing loops. The main loops used in all types of knitwear are the front and back loops. Knit them as follows.

The front loop. There are two ways of knitting the front loop. Classic method: enter the pin in the hinge movement from right to left, grab the working thread lying on the index finger and pull the loop movement on itself, the loop from left needle to reset.

The second method of knitting the front loop is called crossed the front loop or "grandma" loop. It is as follows: insert the spoke into the loop with the movement from left to right from yourself, grab the working thread and stretch it through the loop, and release the loop.

The reverse loop.  As in the case of facial loops, purl loops are also knitted in two ways: classical and crossed. In the classical version for tying the purl loop, it is necessary to throw the working thread on the left knitting needle, insert the right knitting needle into the loop with the movement towards yourself and from the right to the left, pull the knitting needle to the right, while moving the thread slightly to the left. Then, from your own movement, grab the working thread with your right needle and pull out the loop, drop the loop.

For promazyvanija the wrong crossed loop  the working thread is put on the left knitting needle, the right needle is inserted into the loop from left to right to itself, the working thread is grasped by movement from itself and a new loop is pulled out.
