Often after long socks knitted things are broken, dissolved, stretched elastic blouses and sweaters. There is a need to fix. Ordinary darning or patches spoil the view of things and often make them unusable. Being able to knit on spokes, it's nice to fix things so that defects will not be noticeable. If things are really worn, they can be dissolved and re-linked, adding the remnants of wool of a different color. In each house there are balls of colored thread, which can be used to trim bandages things.

Before you start to repair knitted things, they wash. For washing of knitted things used washing powders and soap flakes. The water is heated to 30 degrees, and add ammonia (3 tablespoons per 10 liters of water). When washing woolen clothes, do not RUB, wring - that they lose their original shape and fall heavily, making them unfit for repair and ligation. The washed product is rinsed in warm water, wring out without twisting. After that things are laid out on the fabric and give it the desired shape. Details of bands in the wash and the spin cycle does not stretch, and a slight squeeze.

Pat knitted items inside out using a wet cloth. Things, crocheted openwork and embossed patterns, not iron. After washing them laid out on the cloth, leaving to dry. Knitted blouses, dresses, sweaters should not be hung on the hangers, they are pulled. Keep them folded.

After the product is washed and ironed, to begin repairs. First of all separate the worn part: this product is unstitch at the seams, and then in the beginning of the series, located 2-3 cm above the worn out places, cut the loop and pick up with your fingers the end of the thread, gently pull and cut the thread. Worn part disappears and remains the main part of the product with a new set of free loops. Vacant loops put on the needle and knit the pattern in the opposite direction.

This way you can lengthen the thing, bandage stretched or blown rubber. If wool is not enough, the gum can be striped, selecting colors, to harmonize with the main color.


If the jumper is badly worn out (out of shape, frayed sleeves, highly stretched rubber band), repair start with the dissolution of the product at the seams, the details. After that every detail be washed separately and dried. You then need to cut out the worn areas, without breaking the loops.

Loosen the upper and lower sides of the hole from the trimmed strands and wear on the needle loose loops, and the loop of the top row is transferred to a working thread and loop the bottom row over the pin. Then knit from the top side vents of a new square, keeping the print product. When the square is connected, all the loops of the last row connected to the needle hinges of the bottom side holes as shown in the figure.

Then the sides of the square stitch with knitted side-to-side holes, turning the sleeve inside out. In order that the seam was not visible, carefully align the detail row to row, loop to loop, using threads of primary colour. Sew the outer edges of the edge loops on both sides of the parts with each other so that the edges coincide.

After repair sleeve stripped (except sleeves with elastic band and embossed pattern)


From wool socks and stockings are often torn heels and toes. Instead of the usual darning socks or stockings can be length that is much stronger and more beautiful.

When repairing the worn heel part cut out according to the method described in repair sleeves. Release the loop from the trimmed ends of the thread, wearing loops of the upper part of the hole on a knitting needle, a loop lower down on the other two, having picked up a few loops on the sides of the heel.

Then start knitting socks by knitting loops only the upper side of the cut. With each new set with the last loop are finished one of the loops accumulated on the side spokes. So knit as long as both sides of the opening converge, then promazyvayut another 10 rows unchanged and proceed to the implementation of the cap heel (figure 584) is exactly the same as when knitting a sock. When the heel will be connected and will take the form of a cap, hinges left over from the middle of the heel joint (see "Repair sweaters or sweatshirts") with secondary loops the bottom of the hole. The remaining sides of the loop are sewn with side parts of the heel.
