Children's socks, connected with their own hands,are a wonderful gift for relatives and friends, in addition they will give a piece of warmth of the soul, invested in the work, to their legs in the cold season. An unusual and original sock can do - a toe, part of the sock, covering the fingers. If you knit in the usual way - the toe is the last, and it is very important to make it neat, so as not to spoil the look of the whole work. Let's talk about the types of toes and understand in the schemes of their knitting with knitting needles. Classical capes are a star-spider, propeller, snail, spiral, triangular and round. Let's stop on the star. Asterisk-star. 1.For this toe, there must always be an even number of loops on each spoke. And the extra loops are evenly reduced in the previous series in a circle. On each spoke, we perform two subtractions, which depend on the number of the toe-star shown from the table of dimensions, where it is indicated how much we knit with the decreases to the first circular series. Also this number denotes loops, which we are tying together with the previous loop. 2. Let's say that the number of the toe is seven, so we should link six more circular rows without decreasing. In the first round row with decrements, we tie each sixth and seventh loops together. The number of loops on the spoke between the decreases is the number of the following rows without any deductions. For example: the number of toe 5. Five circular rows are knit together; the next round row with discounts, where in each row we are tying loops 5 and 6. There are still left between the discounts on the spoke 4 of the loop, so we perform 4 rounds without a decrease. We continue to knit with knitting needles according to this pattern, untilThere are two loops on each of the spokes, i.e. only eight loops. The remaining loops are tightened (preferably very tightly, and preferably double thread) and fix the thread. If you do it right, the asteriskwill look neat, symmetrical and not reap. If desired, the toe and heel is distinguished by a contrasting thread. Models of knitted socks with colored inserts are now at the peak of children's fashion. And there are even socks without toes. We wish inspiration! Your child will definitely like bright socks!
