Patterns lace knitting the yo form, i.e. by subtracting the loop. When drafting the pattern the number of loops should be equal to the amount reduced. Subtract loops before and after nakida, and every few loops or in the next row. Nakedi are forward and backward (figures 300 and 301).

To get that straight yo, you have the right needle, catch the working thread with a movement from top right to left "to itself".

To get back yo, a working thread to pick up movement from the bottom.

Feature nakida is that it does not contact the loop of the lower row, so in knitted fabric there is a hole. If yo in the next row, not promazyvaetsya along with the standing loop, it is the beginning of a new column hinges. To do this, always do control loops before or after nakida. To brush up on the correct image openwork patterns, not enough to make yo and subtract it. You need to correctly subtract yo. There is a slope of the loop from right to left and the hole to the right (figures 302, 303).

If we diminish 1 loop (2 loops are finished together), and then make a yo (it should be purl 2 stitches together front behind the front wall), the hole is formed to the left of it.

Delicate patterns can be obtained by double stitches. Double yo get by grabbing the right needle thread twice (figure 304).

When knitting the next row one yo are finished, and the second discharged from the needles. Due to this formed a large hole.

Some patterns double yo made on the front side of the work from the wrong side is not reset, and are finished 1st yo as the front loop, and the 2nd as the reverse order to recover the reduced loop when knitting the front row.

Using different methods of addition of subtraction, changing their location, you can obtain many beautiful lace openwork patterns.


During the knitting of the openwork follow the location of the holes in the pattern.

This method is used when knitting the Raglan lines.
