How to tie a cap with braids?
To tie a beautiful hat with a pattern,It takes a little more skill than for tying a simple gum. However, in general, the work is not complicated. If you like fantasy patterns, read how to tie a cap with braids. We will describe in detail the order of work.
How to calculate loops
That the cap sat on the head tightly, and was onsize, measure the circumference of the head. Then count how many loops fit in one centimeter of the knitted fabric. To do this, you need to link a sample with a width of ten centimeters. Count how many loops you have. Usually in centimeter them from 2 to 4. Now multiply the length of the circumference of the head by the figure. You will learn how many loops you need to dial.
A knitted cap with braids suggests carrying outsimple estimation. We propose to knit braids from 10 loops, that is, thick enough. The repeating pattern, thus, is obtained from 13 loops - a braid, plus three purlins. Now you need to divide the number of received loops by 13 plus add 2 edges. If it does not, add a couple extra loops, this will not spoil the work.
We knit a hat
To begin with, we recommend to tie severalrows of regular rubber band. This will give the cap a lower density and will not allow it to stretch too much. After 4-5 centimeters we begin to knit a cap with braids. On the knitting needles you can even knit the product. But we'll tell you how to tie a hat with a back seam.
We fix the repeating pattern in this way: edge, three loops inlaid, then ten loops facing (this will be a scythe), again purl. The next row is knitted according to the figure. When 10 rows are tied, you need to make a cross so that we get the braids. To do this, remove the first 5 stitches of the braid (it is better to insert an additional spoke in them) and leave them before work. Now we sew the following five face loops. We return to the removed loops and we sew them. Wrongs are the backdrop, so we sew them unchanged.
You can leave the loops removed at work,then the cross will be obtained in a different direction. It is important only to do everything in a uniform way, that is, to cross the braids in a similar way. After the cross is made, we continue to knit the hat on the picture. At the height, where you want to finish the product, you need to start decreasing the loop. To the knitted cap beveled not lost its shape and attractiveness, we subtract first the purl loops. Do not touch the braids while it's possible. To do this, we sew 2 loops together in each area from the back loops. Then we move on to reducing the loops in the braids. In each spit, we subtract 1 loop from each side symmetrically. Until you have 10-15 stitches on the spokes. Then you can pull them together. Cap sewing.
We decorate the hat
Women's hats, knitted braids, organicallylook with a pompon. You can make it yourself from the remnants of the same yarn. Some masters decorate and braids, sew buttons or sequins to them. Then the cap will come not only textured, but also bright, elegant.
It is worth noting a few more nuances. You can change the width of the braids, it is important only that the number of loops in them is even. In addition, you can also vary the width of the background, for example, make it wider. In any case, the cap will be spectacular and noticeable.
