How to knit by car?
So, there was a long-awaited purchase of knittingcars. However, it's quite difficult to figure out how to knit by car. Today there are many knitting machines, each of which has its own advantages and features.
How to start work?
If you decide to figure out how to learnknit by car, you need to understand that in any kind of work you need to be guided by certain rules. Before you start working with the machine, you need to read the instructions to it. First you need to understand what functions a knitting machine can perform.
After studying the functions of the machine, it is recommended to go to the selection of yarn. Experienced masters advise to study the class of the machine, and then select the appropriate thread.
So, the allowable thread density is determined by the class of the machine. So, cars of 3, 5, 7 classes are distinguished. Each class of machines has its own number of needles, and the density of the thread depends on it.
The third class is equipped with needles in the amount of 120-150needles. On this equipment, you can use a large yarn. The fifth class has 180-200 needles. In this case, the use of an average type of yarn is allowed. The seventh class of machines is equipped with 250 needles. For such machines, only fine yarn can be used.
Naturally, the first time an inexperienced knittercreate a quality product does not work. First you just need to learn how to deal with the machine, and then gradually approach the most crucial moment, for which everything was started: how to knit by car. To do this, you need to take a small thread, which corresponds to the class of the machine. The thread is desirable to take light colors, so that it can be seen better during operation.
For the first time working on the machine, you need to takeyarn, consisting of one thread. If you work with several thin strands at the same time, you can not avoid entanglement and delamination. Ideal parameters for yarn, which can be used for the first time when working with absolutely any brand of machine: 500-350 m. Per 100 grams. Threads can be purchased at any hand-made store, you only need to specify the seller the necessary parameters.
Coiler and needle bar
To work with the machine will need a hand winding machine. It is necessary in order to rewind the machine before starting work. With its help, the hank acquires a cylindrical shape, and this greatly facilitates the moment of threading the machine. Also, the coiler will feed yarn into the machine without hooks and knots.
Next in the work you need to pay the maximumthe attention of the needle bed, as well as the carriage (moving part of the machine). To see where these details are located, it is necessary at the first stage, in the beginning of work with the instruction of the machine.
Starting to knit by car is better with elementaryexercises. One such exercise is a set of loops for machine needles. After this exercise is mastered, you can move on to other more complex ones. For example, you can start using different variants of thread interlacing. Then you can move on to more complex work options, namely, to try the following manipulations:
- add one loop along the carriage;
- to move the loops for carrying out an openwork binding;
- fasten the hinges.
Production of the first product
After the basic methods of working on the machinemastered, you can proceed to the manufacture of the first product. Suitable model of the product, for the creation of which you need to use one kind of thread and the same pattern. It is worth paying attention to the patterns. For beginners it is recommended to take models with ready-made patterns, then you can avoid mistakes.
Typically, if the pattern is taken from a popular magazine or book, the complete instruction that contains step-by-step actions for creating a specific model is described there.
When the model of the future product is chosen, it is necessaryconsider carefully all the patterns that you will have to perform. These patterns need to be created on a typewriter in the form of a sample. Samples are needed so that errors in length and width can be avoided. Using the samples, you can calculate how many loops you need to make to achieve the desired parameters. Do not try to neglect this stage of work, because the needles on the needles will be completely different, which means that errors can not be avoided in this case.
It happens that the result does not like at all. For example, the product does not sit on the waist. Then it's better to dissolve what happened. Dissolve the products usually with a special coiler.
Making mistakes in the beginning of the development of the machineknitting is natural. Therefore, if something does not work out, do not despair. In order to understand how to knit on a knitting machine, you can ask for help from experts in special forums or purchase video lessons for beginners.
