Start by selecting a picture. If you are going to decorate a thin T-shirt, then the pattern in principle can be anything. For embroidery on thick knitwear, it is better to choose a pattern with clearly defined shapes and without a lot of small details and color transitions.


Translate the picture. To perform embroidery on a thin Jersey Copy it first to the tracing paper. Lay out the product so that it holds the shape and does not stretch. If you decorate the details of a newly knit thin dense blouse, pin it to a pattern. Determine the place for the picture and pin or grind the tracing paper. With a contrasting color, sew the contours of the pattern with coil threads. You need to do this with small stitches. Carefully remove the receipt. If the picture is small, then it is necessary to immediately mark the places of small parts. For example, you can make crosses where the middle of the flowers or the eyes of the animal will be located.


Drawing on jersey knitting is translatedIn the same way, only before work it is necessary to strengthen the canvas itself. Manual binding easily stretches, in addition, embroidery stitches disappear between the loops. Therefore, sweep a piece of gauze from the wrong side and only after that apply a picture. After the work is completed, it can be quickly removed. If the knitwear is tight, then the contours are stitched first on the typewriter. Calculate at the same time as in all the cases mentioned. Before you take the typewriter, sweep the pattern so that you get a grid with a cell of 8-10 cm.


You can apply a pattern to the dark knit fabric withUsing chalk, flour or soap foam. Calculus is better to take a synthetic one. You can also use a typographic film. The picture is first translated to it. Then puncture its contours, making holes at a distance of 3-4 mm from each other. It is better to put something soft under the tracing paper, like a dense drape or cloth. Then sweep or nip it on the product and sprinkle the contours with flour or tooth powder. You can use foam and shaving.


Having understood the pattern, select the thread. On the thin Jersey You can embroider in principle any, including a mulina. For knitting with knitting needles or with a machine, it is better to choose the threads of the same quality and the same thickness as the yarn. It should not be strongly twisted, otherwise the stitches will be uneven, and the threads themselves will be very easily entangled. If the pattern is small, you can use any thread of the same thickness. It can be viscose or acrylic yarn, thick colored cotton threads, etc. As a rule, synthetic yarn does not shed, which can not be said about cotton. In any case, before starting work, the thread must be checked.


Stitches can be used the same as for embroideryOn the cloth web. It is best to pre-lay the fleece, so that the part does not stretch. The choice of seams depends on the intention. You can, for example, emphasize the texture of knitwear. A crochet stitch is suitable for knitting on knitting needles when the embroidered loops repeat the knitting loops. On thin products look easy to smooth surface, a cross, finishing seams like "goat".


Embroidery on thick hand-knitted products can beExecute with the help of a hook. They can make not only a loop pattern, but also vertical stripes. True, such embroidery is not performed spontaneously, it should be envisaged even during knitting. It consists of horizontal and vertical stripes and represents something like a multicolor grid. If you knit from the bottom up or from top to bottom, then cut the horizontal strips immediately. Vertical then lift the hook. Cells can be filled with elements of vegetative or geometric ornament.
