Simple Knitting Stitches

There are several points of knitting points that you learn and explore but are not known for some basic steps to get your knitting started.

KNOT OF KNOTS (CORREDIO)

When required, this node represents the first point in the chain of points that will work on your needle. You can do this knot with the help of a needle or, simply, with your hands.


1. Tie a loop around two fingers and cross the two ends of wire. Then pull the wire that represents the beginning of the ball through the inside of this loop.
2. Finally, loosen the loop, gently pull both wires together and tighten the knot on the needle (do not let the loop too tight!).

Note: Depending on the job you are performing, it may be necessary to leave a reasonable length of wire. However, always leave a few centimeters of yarn at the beginning of your work (about 15 cm).

KNITTING STICHES KNITTED

In assembling the knits you will build the first row of knits in your needle. To perform this step, there are several different methods that result, too, in different visual effects. Here are two different methods of doing this: simple assembly (thumb method) and assembly to Italian (double assembly).

SIMPLE ASSEMBLY

In this method only one needle is used and requires a sliding knot. The knits are mounted on the needle just after the knot, using only the yarn coming from the yarn to do so.

1. After making the knot (leaving a few inches of wire to be able to then), wrap the wire that comes from the ball around your thumb in the non-dominant hand. With the remaining fingers, attach the wire in the palm of your hand.
2. With your dominant hand, insert the needle into the anterior loop.
3. Finally, and with the needle tucked into the loop of the thumb, loosen this loop and tighten the resulting mesh on your needle (do not over tighten as you will have difficulty inserting the needle into the meshes when you move to the next row!).

ASSEMBLING THE ITALIAN (OR DOUBLE)

In this method, just like the previous one, a single needle is also used and also requires a sliding knot. As a difference from the previous one, the meshes are mounted on the needle just after the knot but the yarn coming from the ball and the tip of the ball are necessary to do so. Therefore, when making the slip knot you should leave the length necessary to make the number of meshes that you want to mount on your needle and a few more inches to then be able to finish the thread and not just fit.


1. After making the sliding knot, wrap the yarn representing the end of the ball, around on your thumb of the non-dominant hand and wrap the yarn that comes from the ball on the index finger of the same hand. With your other fingers, secure the two wires in the palm of your hand.
2. With the help of the dominant hand, insert the needle into the loop of your thumb and pull the wire that is suspended on the index finger through the inside of the same loop.
3. Slightly loosen the anterior loop (thumb loop) and tighten the loop over the needle. Repeat this until you make the number of meshes you want and leave only a few inches of thread before you can finish.

MEDIUM MESH

The sock knit is one of the two knit knits of the knit. As a characteristic, this mesh is always made by threading the needle through the “back of the ring” of the first mesh found on the opposite needle. In addition, after the previous step, the needles will intersect in an “X” shape, leaving the needle of the dominant hand (which is empty) from the back of that “X”.


1. Hold the needle without knitting and insert it into the loop of the first knit on the other needle so as to form an “x”, leaving the needle empty from the back of the knitted needle.
2. Lace the yarn that comes from the ball, around the empty needle and the top of it.

3. Holding the thread tight, cross the needles by pulling the new loop from the front of the needle that has the stitches.
4. Gently loosen the loop where you inserted the empty needle and hold the new loop on the needle that was empty.

The tension of the thread should be managed by the back of the work, by the hand that gives it the best way (the hand that allows you to do your job more comfortably and uniformly).

LEATHER MESH

The alloy mesh is matched to the other knit elemental knit. As a feature, this mesh is always made by threading the needle through the “front of the ring” of the first mesh that is on the opposite needle. In addition, after the previous step, the needles will intersect in an “X” shape, leaving the needle of the dominant hand (which is empty) at the front of that “X”.

TRICOT POINTS

There are dozens of knitting stitches, which result from the knit combination between sock and alloy meshes (basically, it can be said that varying between these two techniques, the position of the yarn relative to the work and the position of the meshes). Three of the base points of the tricot are: the mousse (or garter) stitch, the jersey stitch and the rib stitch.

POINT OF MOUSSE

The mousse point represents the simplest point of knitting. After knitting, it results in a wavy but regular surface with some elasticity. Its appearance is identical on both sides of the job.

Knit all knits, in all rows, like socks.

Number of meshes: any number.

Note: If you make all rows with alloy mesh you will get an identical result.

JERSEY POINT

This point is very used in the manufacture of clothing. It is one of the most used stitches in knitting and results from the alternation of stockings and garter meshes in all rows. The jersey has a smooth surface (usually considered the right side of the job) and a wavy surface.

Knit, in all rows, 1 sock mesh followed by an alloy mesh, successively.

Number of meshes: 1/1 fluted = multiples of 2 / fluted 2/2 = multiples of 4.

Note: Keep in mind that in the next row (when you return your work), you must match the knit knits previously. That is, on the wrong side you have to knit as you attach the meshes that appear as alloy and knit as a half the meshes that appear as alloy.

DISMANTLING THE KNIT

From one needle it passes to the other, from the other it passes to another … and there comes a time when we want to get rid of the needles and finish our work!

To do this, and just as there are various ways of stitching the needle, there are a number of ways to dismantle the needle stitches and finalize your project.

SINGLE ROUND

The simple backtack is, as the name implies, the simplest way to top off your knit piece. This type of shot, results in a very firm edge.

1. Knit the first two meshes with the same point as the front of the piece.

2. With the help of the needle, pass the first mesh over the second mesh and release it. Proceed in the same way to the end of all meshes.

After finishing any part, carefully attach the cord so that your work does not fall apart.

What you have to do is cut a few inches of wire and pull it through the inside of the last mesh. Once you have pulled the thread, try to tie a knot in this last mesh (for this you can also use a tapestry needle, if it suits you).

After ensuring that the work does not go undone, disguise the yarn inside the side edge of your work with the help of a tapestry needle (with a rounded tip).
