Advice 1: How to tie straps

The beautiful word "strap" is called strip or strap slung over the shoulder. The main function of this part is to support the dress, but the material can be absolutely anything: ribbon, leather, fabric, knitted fabrics, metal chain, silicone and so on. Importantly, the straps should tightly hold the thing on your shoulders and look stylish. Knitted items such as, dress, top, jumpsuit also need the strips that do not stretch and do not deform. Way to work with straps different from the method of basic knitting.
How to tie straps
Make measurements for future shoulder - length and width considering allowance for fastening.
If the product is connected with the hook, dial a number in the form of a chain of air loops of a length slightly more than necessary. Work crochet small size. Second row knit columns with nakida in each loop. Very convenient to purl every row surrounded the tangle of thread in one direction, it's easier to adjust the desired length (to dobesilate, to dissolve both series). Knit as tightly as possible, proceed to the intended width.
Sew the straps to the bodice. Strap is not stretched in the process of socks, using Gypsy needle pass the thread of the main color between the bars throughout the length of the straps, starting from the back. Make one stitch on the front and skip the thread again in the opposite direction. Pull the thread ends, give-there straps suspend a convenient length, leave extra and secure. You can adjust the size, the strap is slightly ribbed and looks impressive.
If you work with needles, tie striped harness. Run the straps "Swiss patent" or double elastic. Take spokes for a size smaller than what you used to knit the thing. Determine the pattern size strips. Enter as many loops, so the total width was more than the planned two times. Proceed promazyvaya every front, taking the needle back (get hollow strap). Dawasa to the desired length, close the loop, sew the top and bottom.
Sew the straps to the product, they obtained quite elastic and at the same time don't stretch. Before fastening to invest for the density in the hollow part of the rubber band, tape, cloth. Try to tie the straps, gaining the initial loop right on the edge of the backrest at the rate of two loops from one major. Work tight binding, end strips attach to the front using a special double zipper "crocodile".

Advice 2: How to tie a hollow elastic

Hollow elastic is very often used in hand-knitting to such parts of knitted garments like cuffs, straps neck, headbands and hats or berets. With the help of this technique, knitting can be a double blade that allows you to associate the product with no wrong side, so-called "double product" that is often found in children's models. The use of manual knitting hollow gum allows to obtain a smooth, elastic edge products.
It looks like the elastic region of a hollow gum
You will need
  • Threads for hand knitting main color
  • Additional thread of a contrasting color, knitting Needles.
Thread of contrasting color dial on the spokes of a loop stacked series. When calculating the required number of loops, we must bear in mind that the number of loops must be two times less than that required for knitting the bands. For example, if a hollow elastic fit 30 loops, the second thread need to gain 15 loops.
Set the initial number contrast (worthless) thread
After dial-in number, go to knitting most hollow elastics. For this it is necessary to include in the knitting, the working yarn and purl the first row as follows: 1 front loop, 1 yo. So continue until the completion of the series. On the needles formed the required number of loops. In the second row yo provarite front loop following the loop stitches off the wrong not promazyvaya, a working thread needs to be before work. The third and all subsequent rows are knitted the same way - 1 front loop, the following is removed from the needles as in promazyvanii the reverse loop, the worker thread continues to work.
Continued knitting the main thread
After the elastic band tied at the required width, you can go to the knitting of the basic fabric of a selected pattern. In this transition, the row should be purl 2 loops together.

To obtain a neat and elastic edge of a web is sometimes enough to link a few, 4 or 6 rows of hollow rubber band, and continue to work with a regular elastic - 1x1, 2x2, etc. In this case, you do not have to purl 2 loops together, since the normal gum will have approximately the same width as the hollow.
The transition to the knitting of the main leaf of the front surface
After the hollow band is connected in a desired width, the auxiliary thread can be deleted. To do this, incise the loop typesetting series, and then gently remove the string through the spokes or needles.
Remove additional thread
If you remove loops from the needles, you can see that the canvas is divided into two parts, associated front surface and connected in a stacked region. Therefore, the hollow elastic is sometimes called a double. This property is of hollow or double elastics used for finishing necks or straps of articles of hand-knit.
Useful advice
After washing of hand-knitwear to be dried on a flat surface, straps and elastics in no event it is impossible to stretch.
