How to make a scheme for knitting</a>

The ability to knit is a creative and useful activity.

The knitted thing always attracts the eye. At the heart of each product is a diagram that describes the drawing and the work itself.

Now you can find many ready-made knitting patterns in books, magazines, on the Internet.

But it is much more interesting to create your own unique scheme.

You will need

  • A sheet in a cage or millimeter paper, a pencil, an eraser, a yarn, tools for knitting.



Take as a basis any drawing you likeOr come up with your own. Then start drawing it on a tethered sheet in a box, or even better, if it is a paper of millimeters. Thanks to the cells you can more accurately transfer or enlarge the image, if necessary. One cell will designate one loop. Later, in this graphical scheme, you can easily follow the pattern during Knitting. Enter the symbols for the loops (the legend of the scheme), immediately indicating the decoding of all these icons. Then you do not have to remember what a particular symbol means, and you do not get confused.


Next, draw a grid of the size you need, number the columns and rows. If you want to specify the purl rows on the diagram, then indicate them with numbers to the left of it in the case Knitting Straight and reverse rows and to the right of the circuit for a circular Knitting. Then designate the boundaries of the rapport, that is, the loops repeating in one row. As a rule, for this use brackets or asterisks, which are placed at the beginning and at the end of the repeating elements.


In the event that in your pattern quantityLoops vary from row to row, then leave the empty cells in the picture or paint them in a dark color, and then, when knitting, they will be passed through. But do not forget to mention this in the conventions. Such cells will help you align the circuit and make it more visual and intuitive
