Lace for many years decorate themselves with clothes andinterior items. In ancient times needlewomen wove them with the help of bobbins or used thin needles. It was an amazing, complex and very laborious process. Such skillful needlework was valued very highly, and only rich people could afford lacy luxury. One of the most beautiful, elegant and complex was the Bryugsky or Vologda lace. They were created from the finest silk threads with the addition of gold and silver. With the growth of popularity of openwork products, the number of techniques for their creation also grew. In the 18th century, a specialized lace-making school was even founded in Bruges. And if in Holland and other European countries lace was woven from insanely expensive threads, the craftsmen from Russian Vologda were the first to apply a thin linen thread to create lace masterpieces. Surprisingly tender, weightless, unlike gold weaving, lace conquered the world. In our time, to become the owner of a delicious and delicate product does not necessarily spend many days for hundreds of bobbins. Crochet is in many respects an amazing occupation, and one of its advantages is that it is possible to imitate many types of lace, including Vologda or Bryugsky. Products created in this style, in truth, are exclusive and original. Bruges lace can be made as a whole product, so its part, for example, a coquette or lace inset on the sleeve. They also fit perfectly as a rim. In the technique of the Vologda or Bryug lace knit almost everything, starting with napkins, tablecloths and pillows, ending with gorgeous dresses, jackets and stoles. The pattern in this lace is formed due to the fact that the braid curves under completely different angles. It fits in a certain pattern and joins in the course of the work. The beginning and the end of such tape form a closed perimeter, they are stitched with a needle or connected with the help of a hook. To create lacework on this technique apply different types of braid. In this weaving, the lifting loops are tied in a larger quantity, and often they play the role of an arch for fastening the ribbon to an ornament. Laces are tied according to schemes, they show both the order of work and the methods of coupling the parts. Directionality of tying the rows is direct and reverse. The braid is joined during the tying of the air loops at the beginning of each row. In the role of connecting parts can be tied up and air. loop, and st. without a crochet, and art. with a different number of capes. With the same connection loops, the bands will be parallel. If you change the size of the connection bars (due to the different number of overlays), the stripes will be at an angle. To obtain the bend of the ribbon itself, the posts with different number of capes are tied and the arches are connected to each other on the inner side of the gyrus. The empty space, which is obtained by the appearance of gyri, is filled with complex bars that form a grid. The ribbon can have a square, round, triangular or polygonal shape, which is included in more complex elements, which will then form the whole figure. After carefully studying the features of knitting products in this technique, you can create a truly exclusive and unique thing. To begin with, it is necessary to understand the circuit in this technique, which resembles a labyrinth, tightened with cobwebs. Usually, the band denotes a ribbon, and the quantitylines on it means the eyelets in a row. Step one. Armed with a bright felt-tip pen, find and mark the direction of movement. (in the picture red arrows). The lace in this technique will be double-sided so it is easy to tie it both in the course and against the clockwise direction. Step two. Carefully calculate where and how the arches will connect with each other. Arches are connected in the course of knitting with columns with a different number of crochet, airy loops or complex posts. One arch can also be connected to one or several arches. (connection points are highlighted in black). Step three. The sequence of joining arches is very important for accurately following the pattern scheme. It is important to observe the necessary number of arches between the ribbon bends. For convenience, they can be counted on the outside or on the inside. (green and blue respectively). Step four. It is necessary to pay special attention to the bend of the ribbon. The rotation is created with the use of beveled rows (internal arches are already obtained). It is necessary to carefully monitor the number of such arches in the turn. After tying the 4th or 5th, the arches are usually made. Carrying out turns in the Bryug crocheting technique. To start, you need to tie a piece of simplebraid. Even a beginner can cope with this. Only 10 rows of 4 tbsp. with a crochet in each. Start the series 6 air. loops. Step one. Center to the right. Knit from the center. Spravat 6 air. loops, then 1 tbsp. without a crochet, 1 half-pile with a crochet and 2 tbsp. with a crochet. Step two. The next row is tied to the center as usual (6 air loops and 4 sts with a cuff). Step three. Repeat steps one and two four times. 4 narrow internal arches were formed. Step four. Fifth inner arch to be tied up from 3 flights. loops, then insert the hook sequentially into the middle of each inner narrow arch and bind 1 tbsp. without a crochet, then tie another 3 air. loop and close the ring. Then bind 3 more air. loops and 4 tbsp. with a crochet, finishing a string of braids as usual. Step five. The sides of the braids are connected with each other in the process of working for the internal arches in the following way: 3 air. The loops are connected to the center of the arch 1 st. without a crochet, then knot another 3 air. loops and tie braids as usual. External arches are bound from 6 air. loops. Methods of coupling arches when creating a pattern. How to perform a turn in this technique is described above. Now we are talking about different options for joining the braid. Opposite internal arches can be connected like this. To untie 3 air. loops, grab a working thread, inserting a hook under the chosen arch, drag it through all the loops on the hook and again to untie the 3 air. loops. Another simple way with the help of 1 tbsp. without a crochet. To untie 3 air. loops of the inner arch, in the center of the inner arch opposite to tie 1 tbsp. without a crochet and again 3 air. loops and unfasten a number of braids, as usual. The next option is to grip with1 tbsp. with a different number of nakidov needed if the strips of braid is required to be located at a certain distance from each other. To knive 3 air. loops, make a crochet, insert a hook under the arch, and then tie it like a regular column with a crochet, first 2 loops, then 2 more, then tie another 3 air. loops and continue knitting the ribbon as usual. The number of nakids on the charts is usually written next to the designation of the arches. The following connection method is performed:with cruciform posts on the stalk. This method of connection is considered on the example of knitting "double snake". The second is connected with the first in the process of knitting. To knive 3 air. hinges, make 4 crochets, hook under the lower left arch, grab the thread and stretch it through 2 loops 2 times (hook 1 loop, 2 nakida and 1 loop), make 2 more nakida, hook under the upper left arch and repeat the action as for the lower arch. Carry out the same manipulations for the upper right arch (starting with 2 nakidov) and tie the loop until the hook is left alone, dial 3 air. loops and continue knitting.
