When knitting knitting hats, sweaters, pullovers,vests, scarves and other products, a pattern with a pattern of "scythe" is used. Things with such a pattern of knitting look very stylish and beautiful. There are different patterns of crocheting, respectively, and the names are different. Here are some examples of names of such patterns: a two-sided scythe, three-dimensional braids, a spit-spike, a decorative braid, a Celtic spit, a large spit, hidden braids. And this is not limited to the whole variety of knitted braids. Very beautiful braids look on the background of garter stitching or knitting pattern "rice." However, you can choose the background of the mating to your liking. The so-called two-sided scythe is simple in execution. It is recommended to use knitting with knitting needles, as the pattern of knitting will be the same with both the front and the underside. The picture of a two-sided braid is knitted with an elastic band 1 on 1 or 2 on 2: 2 purl loops, 2 facial; 2 people, 2 persons - only 8 loops. In our example, we use a pattern with two braids. In one spit the loops intersect with a slope to the right, in the second spit with a slant to the left. We knit the sample. The first 2 p-edge: 1 p. we remove, not tying, then we knit 1 person. Then we knit a few knits with the main knit. In our sample, this is the figure "rice": the facial loops are knitted with the wrong knitted fabric, and the purlins are made with the viscose loop. Then we cross the braid with the slope to the right. To do this, remove the first 4 sts, without tying them, and arrange them for work (you can put them on a pin or additional spoke). The next 4 items are knitted according to the figure: 2 dep., 2 persons. We dress the previously left 4 loops on the left knitting needle and tie them - 2 out., 2 faces. Then make the slope of the second spit to the left. To do this, remove the first 4 sts, without tying, and have before work. The next 4 loops knit on the figure - 2 dep., 2 persons. Remove the looped loops on the left knitting needle and tie them, 2 out of the way, 2 faces. Next, go to the main binding, that is, knitface loops with the back loops, and purl loops by the front. The last 2 loop edges, 1 st. Knit a face loop and the last one - purl. Turn the work to the wrong side. The first 2 points are edge, we remove without tying. Further on the pattern of the main mating: the facial loops knit face, the purlins - the underside. We also knit the braids of the braid according to the figure: 2 persons., 2 str. Similarly we knit the second braid: 2 persons., 2 str. The last 2 edge loops, the first loopwe remove, not tying, the second - we knit the wrong side. After rowing several rows, we make a cross again. We choose the number of rows by ourselves. We advise you to take 8 rows. Having pierced the rows before the cross, we see that the braid consists of an ordinary rubber band 2 by 2. Due to the cross, the elastic becomes a braid, which in the finished product looks much more beautiful and elegant than the usual elastic band. Agree that it is not difficult to connect a two-sided scythe even to novice craftsmen.
