A jacket is called a knitted product for the upperpart of the body, which front is equipped with a fastener. This means a fastener from the bottom to the top. The length of the sweater comes to the waist or to the hips. Longer products are called cardigans.
Hand-knitted warm jacket is especially attractive and is best able to warm a person.
What should I know before I start knitting?
As a rule, yarns with a high content of natural fibers (not less than 50%) are used for all warm knitted products. It can be wool, mohair or angora.
Yarn can be different, its quality is affected by raw materials,processing, painting and other procedures, as well as the qualifications of the manufacturer. It is better to use soft yarn of Turkish or Italian manufacturers with a thickness of 200 m / 100 grams. The density of knitting should be kept average or even loose. Strange as it may seem, but the soft, loosely bound fabric perfectly keeps heat.
Elements of a classic warm jacket
Warm sweaters for women can be knitted or crocheted. Often the list of details does not change. It includes:
- backrest detail;
- two transmission parts;
- two details of sleeves;
- pockets, hood, belt can be present in some models.
Some sweaters have a very specific cut. They can be made in the form of a large circle with or without sleeves, a rectangle sewn in a certain way, or have some other unusual shape.
Warm jacket with knitting needles
Spokes are most often used for knitting warm clothes. They make it possible to create a really soft and pleasant to the touch cloth.
As a pattern can be usedabsolutely any motives. Of course, if you plan to knit a winter product, it is better to stop on solid ornaments. But even dense patterns can be decorated with minor elements of azhur that do not completely reduce the quality of the product.
When choosing a quality beautiful yarn warmsweaters with knitting needles (schemes are not needed for this) can be connected by the most elementary patterns, up to the front or the back surface. This is exactly what the authors of the melange jacket made in the photo.
Its tailoring is quite common, there are not even elastic bands at the bottom of the sleeves, and also on the details of the gear and the back. The main decoration is elite yarn from alpaca and naughty hood.
Sweatshirt with braids
Spit, aran or tourniquet is the most recognizableelement, which became literally a symbol of hand knitting. Its use is extremely widespread and is used to decorate all the details of the jacket without exception.
In the photo below, the braids are located along the entire width of the back piece, with a narrow strip running along the center of the sleeve, and are also placed on the collar.
Such a collar-shawk is usually knitted with a single piece with shelves. The correct manufacture of this part requires a certain skill and ability to carefully calculate the loops and rows.
A warm sweater can be knitted with knitting needlesusing the pattern from the next photo. Here is a composition of very simple braids. Some of them include air loops, which give the ornament a slight tracery.
The optimal location of this fragment is the centerdetails of the back, sleeves and shelves. In this case, you do not have to reflect on how to reduce the loop of the pattern for the armhole and the pellets, because there will be a smooth surface on the edges of the canvas.
Features knitting warm crochet crochet
Those skilled workers who know the skills of knittingcrocheting, making a product like a warm jacket, is even easier and more affordable. Often, crocheting large size (3.5-5 mm) and thick yarn allows you to create very large canvas very quickly.
Of course, each master has its own speed, but crocheting the back part for the day is quite realistic. The specifics of making crochet hooks is the following:
- Avoid too tracery patterns. With a thread thickness of 200 m / 100 grams, the proportions of the pattern increase and the holes become too large, and a warm jacket crocheted will not be so warm.
- Do not go into the opposite extreme and try to tie a too tight pattern. It will look like a wooden board.
- You can not plan knitting patterns with anyfolds. It is better to give preference to simple direct silhouettes. The canvas, created by the hook, is always tougher than that made with knitting needles, and beautiful folds will not work.
- Hook is very convenient to knit the bar for sweatshirts. It turns out to be moderately rigid and keeps the shape well. Many craftsmen prefer to sew a bar, crocheted on sweaters made with spokes.
Crochet Crochet Knitting Sequence
The photo below shows a warm jacket, crocheted. Its model can be called universal, as it is very easy to adapt to any pattern, color and type of yarn.
As an ornament, an openwork ornament is chosen, butthis will not become a defect of the product if the yarn contains 50-80% of warm fibers. The figure suggests several patterns suitable for knitting crocheted crochet.
Details of the transmission, back and sleeves representare rectangles. This method is used when the scheme of a warm jacket is difficult to reduce and add loops. It can not be said that this is a very elegant product, as it is quite massive. Rather, such a warm jacket is designed only for convenience and warmth.
The hood and pockets are knitted last. The hood can also be tied in a rectangle, but it is better to calculate the pattern and follow it.
When all the basic parts are ready, they are assembled with a knitted suture or crocheted on the wrong side of the canvas.
Final stage: strap and strapping
The stitched details of a warm jacket are washed and dried in the unfolded form. You can instead steal them a little from the iron, but it's important not to overdo it and do not deform the canvas.
When the jacket is leveled and has taken shape, you canto proceed to the strapping. Its first row always consists of columns without a crochet. In order not to tie the ruches instead of the bar, or vice versa, do not remove the strapping, you need to tie the sample and calculate the loops. Do not ignore this rule, otherwise you will have to dissolve a lot. When tying the edges of the product, attention should be paid to the formation of corners. they should be equal to 90 degrees (formed by tying three loops from one corner).
You can also tie the bar separately and then sew. But you need to be very careful about the implementation of the seam: it will be seen from both sides and it should be ideal.
The bar is knitted with a single cloth with a hood strap. Thus, the product will get a complete look.
