How to start knitting Question How to start knittingrests on the basic tools for this. That is why we will look at everything about choosing a hook and learn everything about how to start knitting. A few words about the choice of hook based on its structure and uniformity of hook thickness. I would advise beginning knitters to take a hook without a handle. I'll explain why! When you start to knit, there is no formed knitting density yet, as the thread tension is not uniform. And if the hook is with a handle, you will not feel the loops themselves, their excessive lightness or tightness. The hand must feel the hook itself! There are a few more nuances in the structure of the hook: - additional handles; - hook thickness along the entire length; - sharpness of the head; - universal hooks.
How to start knitting - choose the hook in practice
How can begin to knit a person who does not haveThe hands of a suitable instrument or having nothing at all! It's like cutting a wood with a nail file or no saw at all. Therefore, before we begin to knit, we go to the store and choose the tool we need - the hook! I will make you such a small comparison of the choice of the hook! Hooks, which, as you may have noticed by MK, I use: The most common, simple hooks, without a handle, smooth, head (hook, which we catch the yarn) is almost equal to the thickness of the hook. And here's an example of how the correct hook can be "improved." These are the same hooks, but the hostess wore themspecial pens. An experienced knitter can afford it. But in my opinion - this is an extra detail, because with a hook, it is convenient to hold not the part that is under the handle, but a little closer to the head. And yet, everyone has their own preferences, try, I just give advice personal experience! ? And here is another example of a pen. Here is a more convenient handle than the previous one.a photo. A special place for the thumb is located in the place where it is necessary, where the finger will be physiologically located with the right grip. If the hook handle is almost flat, this hook is suitable for the beginning knitter. In all the hooks there is also such a feature - the dimension (thickness) in length. They are one-dimensional and multi-dimensional. I do not say that they are not correct, but some distinction should be formed in you! If the hook after the head (the very rounding, which we catch on) almost immediately goes into a thicker rod that does not fit the size of the head - as a beginning knitter, it will be difficult for you to make an even and dense pattern! Why! Very simple! You pull the working thread out of the loop, it goes to the thick part of the hook and when you start to knit further, the working loop either tightens on the narrower part, or remains wide. What will happen in this case! If the loop is tightened, it is unlikely that it will be able to hook the hook in the opposite direction. And if it works, then in the next row you will suffer with such a loop, the hook head will pass, and then it will get stuck - it is difficult to grab the working thread. If the loop remains too loose, then the knitting will be full of holes. And if the tight and loose loops are mixed, then knitting can all go in a wave. Another thing, if you have already practiced with experience, or at least one of mine has passed and you already understand what's what. In this case, you can use these special hooks for your own purposes! As you ask! ? We take a very fluffy and soft yarn (for example), take such a hook and begin to knit the softest, most gentle down scarf! ? Anything that comes up can be used somewhere! But the hooks with thick heads and thin handles, I would still call the wrong. Since when knitting with them, it is practically impossible to control the thread tension. But these hooks will be very useful for an experienced knitter with a “full” hand to regulate the thickness and density of knitting. In principle, one such hook replaces several at once - a good option for a knitting traveler. ? On the "head" of the hook, I would also like to say separately! Pay attention to these hooks: They have a very sharp tip of the head itself, whichwe pick up the thread. If you use an unstable, fluffy thread, then it will simply split or tear them. In my set, hook number three was the same. All wonderful, but this one got out of the masses, apparently a marriage. I coped with it using sandpaper, just filed a sharp "tail." There are hooks with sharp "heads" - the tips themselves. Hooks with a rounded head and less often with a sharp one are usually used. With regular knitting, it is better not to use them, because tritely prick yourself a hand, maybe even blood. But their special use nevertheless is !!! ? When I was preparing for the birth of my daughter, I tied tight flannelette diapers (just chopped material) with “Iris” threads using such a hook. Beautiful edge and well-maintained. Stretching fabric, such as fleece, can also be framed with such a hook and it will not warp as much when used and washed. You can pierce a thick fabric with a regular hook, but it’s difficult. Of course, I don’t take thin hooks for lace into account, they can also be pierced with a thick fabric. ? I hope that the questions on the chapter “How to start knitting!” Are much less! ? Correct and convenient hooks can be bought from us in the store: A house for your hooks For those who knit andkeen on sewing there is a very detailed master class, which I can advise you with great pleasure: ““. The order of the needlewoman - part of the success! ?
