Knitting French gum according to the scheme with a detailed description

Knitting French gum according to the scheme with a detailed description


There is no doubt that among the mostNeeded patterns knitting needles are rubber bands. There are many varieties of gum, but they all have some common qualities that unite them in one big group. The scheme of any rubber band with spokes consists of a combination of loops forming an elastic web. Each product associated with this relief is voluminous, elastic and extremely effective. Usually this is the way knitting sports sweaters, hats and scarves, as well as the extreme zone in clothing, like the bottom zone, cuffs or collars. This pattern includes a large number of techniques with different appearance and name. Each of them is tied in its own way, only to its inherent scheme. One of the main rules for knitting any elastic relief is the choice of the right size of the spokes.

The diameter of the spokes should be equal to the diameter of the thread,Or a maximum of 1.5 times more. In this case, the product is neat. For the manufacture of different types of clothing most often use such names as 1х1, and 2х2. In addition, it is very popular
, Double (Italian), as well as Polish and French rubber bands with knitting needles. It's about the French gum that will be discussed in this lesson.

Technics 1x1

But in order to better understand the technique of knittingAnd the scheme of the French gum, for a start, let's pay attention to the usual simple technique. Below you can see a drawing of this particular technique, called 1x1. Here, the first digit represents the facial, and the second purl loops. Then the meaning of the digital notation 2x2, or 1x2, becomes clear.
This elastic pattern hasPrimitive scheme, and is performed by alternating a combination of the face loops (LP) and the back loops (IP). Regardless of which of these schemes you choose, the canvas will be elastic and elastic. Therefore, even this simplest scheme with a combination of front and back loops (P) can be successfully used to form tight fitting things. The most important thing in this matter is to observe the proportions of a combination of two kinds of P. If proportions are violated, then the elasticity of the canvas will suffer. It can be a sweater of a turtleneck, or extreme details of clothes. All other methods are based on this simplest scheme.

Technics 2x2

The French rubber band is made with spokes by alternating the same P as the one we considered earlier, but it looks absolutely different.

Form of French gum, reminiscent ofCorrugated, knitted with a combination of facial and purl P, but in a different sequence. If two LPs and two IPs are first crocheted alternately, then in the next row (P) the rapport needs to be shifted. This is the scheme necessary to work. This is how the corrugated surface of the French gum turns out. It must be remembered that the French elastic band is knitted exclusively by classical technique. Starting to knit such a pattern with knitting needles, dial the number of units that is a multiple of four. Also, two edge loops should be added here. Having typed the necessary loops, we knit the first P, alternating between two LPs and two IPs. In the next second P, the pattern is shifted according to the scheme, so we knit first the IP, then the two LPs, and the last in the rapport of the FE. Only after this it is necessary to repeat the French elastic band from the very beginning. The diagram of the picture is in the lesson.
Here, the empty cell denotes the LP in the front, or the IP in the purl series. A cell with a circle inside, it's a PI in the front, or LP in the purl series.

Different ways

We invite you to consider another originalWay of knitting French gum. We select the number of loops, a multiple of three, plus the edge and one P for symmetry. The first and all odd P are satisfied in the following sequence:

  • The first is purplish;
  • The second P is removed, and transferred to the right spoke;
  • The third P knits the front of the back;
  • Previously removed P again transferred to the working left spoke, and also execute it behind the back wall, as LP;
  • The last edge fits like an FE.

And now we will consider knitting of the second and all even P of the given technique on performance of the French rubber band:

  • The first loop is knit like an LP;
  • The second is transferred without binding;
  • The third knitting of the purl P;
  • Previously removed by P we transfer back, and we knit it as PI;
  • The last P must be facial.

Video lessons on knitting French gum

This video gives a detailed description of howThe formation of French gum is in progress. The video uses the same technique as in one of the previous options described in this lesson. In the first line after the edge П it is necessary to make two LPs. In this case they are performed in a special way. The first one is the one that is behind, and only then the front one. In this case, both loops are not removed from the spoke. After this, we knit two purlins II, and repeat all the way to the end of R. We turn the cloth, and form the second P, the latter in the rapport. The first edge P is removed, and then we perform the following two LPs. After these two IPs are located, which are knitted according to the same technique as the front one in the previous one. The first one is the distant one, and the second is the short loop. In the future, we need to repeat the first and second P alternately in order to get a beautiful French gum. So, we have examined all the existing options for making such a pattern, like a French rubber band, and the master class has come to an end. Using the information obtained in it, you will be able to form magnificent canvases using this particular relief.
