Braid and cord. When you update the clothes, when we combine different color or texture of the fabric, joints can be closed with finishing braid or cord.
Braid a pigtail, you can associate knitting or crochet (Fig. 321). When knitting 2 loop gain and promazyvayut them or the front (behind the rear wall), or inside-out loops. After promazyvanija loop every time remaking on left needle and knit without turning your knitting.
When you crochet you need two hooks of the same thickness. Gain 2 air loops and promazyvayut alternately one, then another hook polostevichi from the same thread (the knitting not turn, knit all the time with one hand). A band get so tight that the hooks do not fall out of the loops.
For the manufacture of flat braid (Fig. 322) gain on needles 3 stitches and all rows are knit the same: first (edge) loop off nepovezane (thread loop), the second loop - the front, the third (edge) - inside-out.
Oblique openwork braid (rice, 323) knit as follows: on the spokes dial 2 hinges and all rows are knit the same. Pick up working thread the right needle (that is, do nakyd from the working thread to the thread in a loop), the first loop is removed nepovezane, the second promazyvayut the front for the front wall (a), then using the removed nepovezane loop stretch the left outer loop. On the spoke each time to promazyvanie new series are 2 loops: one is newly formed from the working thread, the second is obtained from the loop, stretched across the shot.
To knit hollow cord (Fig. 324), crochet, make a closed ring of 3-5 loops (a). Then tie it in a circle (counter-clockwise), columns without nakida, grabbing the outside of the loop (6). Thus knit cord to desired length.
Crochet two-color ribbons (Fig. 325) we need two threads - dark and light (called threads and any other material), the two hooks of different thickness, such as No. 4 and 5. Hook size is selected depending on the width of the material used. All rows knit polostevichi, and monochrome series - a hook No. 5, and two-tone - crochet No. 4. Of bright thread vymazat a chain of air loops. Next row knit two-color, alternating bright and dark polostevichi: the hook is injected under the jumper is on the wrong side of the chain (a).Then knit 1 more row of bright yarn, inserting hook under the same jumper monochrome series. Last row - two-tone. Here before to use the dark thread, cut it from the opposite end of the braid. When promazyvanie this series the hook is introduced near the top thread loops of the first two tone rows under loop of the previous row (b), that is plain loop is passed over the hook completely. As a result, formed two closely adjoining one another two-tone hair, the edges of which are visible monochromatic loop.
Braid teeth (Fig, 326) crochet fine cord, using an initial number the thicker the cord. I knit one side of the cord, alternating 3 column with nakida and a closed ring of three loops (connecting prostovisa the first and last loop of the related 3 loops). Same number of knit on the other side of the cord, positioning the poles and the teeth staggered.
To produce a two-tone braided band (Fig. 327), fixed with 4 bright and between 2 dark cord so that the ends were left hanging. Tolerate the 3rd cord to the right and above it - 4th cord to the left (a), 2nd cord carry over 4 to the right and the 5th on the 3rd and 2nd to the left (b). 4th cord is transferred to the right of the 5th and 3rd - to the left over 2-m and 4-m (in). The 1st cord is transferred to the right (first to last under the 5th, then on the 3rd). 6th cord is transferred to the left (first to last under 2, then over 4-m and 1-m) ( g).Thus, the cords located on the edge intertwined in the middle as well as at the beginning of the dark intertwined cords, that is, a new cycle begins.
To obtain a braided cord (Fig. 328) fixed 2 light strands and between 2 dark so that the ends were left hanging. Twist between dark strands counter-clockwise, i.e. left goes to the right thread and the right passes over the left (a). Between the dark strands (one, bottom is the back, and another, upper - front) twist light yarn clockwise, i.e., right-light thread goes to the left, and the left over her right. Continue weaving, making sure that the dark threads were twisted on all the time counterclockwise, and bright - clockwise.If you need a very long cord, a netting, you can start from the middle. To do this, secure the thread and weave in the middle of the first half. Then, turn the cord, thread carefully fastened just above the place where you want to begin braiding, and weave the other half.
To weave the braid shown in figure 329, take an odd number of threads, for example 7, is divided into two unequal parts (for 3 and 4 threads). From most extreme to divert the thread and carry it over the rest of the threads in the middle. Doing the same with the outermost thread of the other part. Continue to weave braid, alternately transferring the external threads of both parts in the middle. You can use colored threads.
