  • ALWAYS knit a sample. Do not regret this time and expensive yarn. You knit with needles, which you plan to knit at least 1-2 rapport, close the loops, wash with warm water and dry. Only then can the sample be measured and loops calculated on a large product.
  • It is not necessary to choose the number of knitting needles according to the recommendation indicated on the yarn package. Each needlewoman has her own particular knitting style: loose or, on the contrary, tight. The size of the needles, you can adjust the density of the fabric, adjusted for your style.
  • After the product is connected, sewn, be sure to wash it to wash the factory wax, treatment from moths. Wash with a liquid detergent for washing wool in warm (not hot) water. Rinse several times. Wring out a towel, gently twisting. Leave to dry on a horizontal surface on a dry towel, giving the desired shape with your hands.
  • Do not save on yarn. Life is too short to knit from synthetics and poor quality wool. Remember how in childhood you didn’t like barbed hat and biting mittens. For children's clothes, choose merino. It is soft and does not prick at all. Saving, you spend time on knitting things, which after washing will lose the look. The thread will stretch, the paint will shed. Good yarn has been in the product for years.

  • After blooming the product, if you decide to knit something new out of this yarn, you must wash the yarn. It will be smooth, you will be more comfortable to knit. Wind the yarn in long loops, as for skeins, for example, on the back of a chair. Tie a contrast thread so as not to be confused. Wash, leave to dry, hanging by one of the stitching threads. After drying, rewind into balls.

  • Pair of things can be knit simultaneously on the needles with fishing line using the "magic loop" method. Use knitting needles with a smooth connection to the fishing line (for example, knit pro detachable) and a 80, 100 cm long fishing line.
  • It is possible to knit in 2 threads from one coil: a thread outside and inside a hank. Or, for example, take 2 tips for knitting with the "magic loop" method.

  • Record the original data on the product: the name of the yarn, the article / name of the color, the number of needles, the number of loops dialed. When you want to repeat, you will not need to remember or calculate.
  • Gum knit with smaller diameter knitting needles, the “rice”, “pearl” pattern makes the thing more voluminous, the arana, the braids compress the thing. Arana and braids, jacquard knit knitting larger diameter.
  • It is easier to tie a hat of the desired shape using different size of the needles: the gum is 1 / 1.5 smaller, the main part with the needles indicated on the yarn package is closer to the crown again to a smaller size in order to smoothly narrow the product.
