Lesson 6. Ornaments

The elegance and aesthetics of the product gives the ornament, but in order to make it look fancy, we must be able to pick up the colors of the yarns and alternating patterns in the center of the canvas and edge binding. The selection of colors is a matter of taste, but there are the most common compatibility of colors used in embroidery, knitting, weaving, etc.

Here are some of them:
grey color goes well with blue, beige, red, Burgundy, brown, blue;
blue with red, green, brown;
beige - orange, yellow and brown;
blue - gray and red;
pink with grey, brown and blue;
black and white combined with any color.

Before binding of the ornament, you should choose a pattern, apply it on checkered paper or tracing paper legend. When knitting multi-colored pattern to apply it on a schema with a pencil or crayon of the corresponding color. The pattern for product design you can think of yourself, or take ready-made embroidery "cross" (one of the "cross" corresponds to one loop). The ornament is written in scheme and is knitted from the bottom up.

When performing an ornament two spokes most often used "socks knitting".

When performing a pattern of five knitting needles knit facial loops in a circle.

Knitting ornament with colored threads called "jacquard".

The ornaments are divided by national and age characteristics. There are also ornaments for men and women. Consider some of them.


Snowflakes and stars, made a red, white and black threads are key to this ornament.

If the pattern between loops one color large, distance that stretches outside the thread will fix this: in each of the front row, before you purl into the front loop, work the needle introduced into the loop on the left needle, once on a broken thread, the second time under the working thread (figures 125, 126).

Odd-numbered rows are always executed on the front side and even numbers on the reverse.
