Advice 1: How to close a knitted cap

Knitted hat looks very stylish, it is practical and convenient. To start to crochet is pretty easy, but to finish carefully, so that the cap was sitting right on the head, not every seamstress. Close knitted cap in several ways.
How to close a knitted cap
You will need
  • - a cap;
  • - threads;
  • - spokes
  • - needle;
  • hook.
When you link the main part of the hat, determine the ranks of contractions. For this count of the loop, divide the resulting number into 6-8 pieces (if you need a pointed hat, divide by 4). Then each selected row check slim colored thread using a needle.
Continue to knit the hat in a circle, but take away the loop in marked rows. For this promazyvaya loop from this number with the following loop, each time the front loop. As a result, you get a neat strip converging to the apex of the cap.
When the needles will remain 6-8 stitches (all rows will come together), type them on one needle and using a needle or the hook thread through thread through. Cut the end of the thread, leaving a few inches, tighten, tie off and hide the tip on the wrong side.
If the pattern were too many loops or cap is tied with thick yarn, and the result after collapsing in the center formed an ugly hole, we proceed the following way. Provarite in the front row all the loops, promazyvaya two together but such a double alternating loop with SC. Then cut the excess thread, leaving a few inches, pass it into a needle and sew a loop, dropping nakedi from the needles. Pull the thread, tie and hide the tip, you will see that loops are formed into a beautiful flower.
Another way to finish the cap: when you reach the top, proverite a number, subtract the number of loops in half, promazyvaya every two loops together. A new series link on the image, then re-reduce the number of loops. Thus reduce the capuntil 6-8 loops that would be easy to collect on a thread and pull. Note, this method is not suitable for complex vertical patterns.
If you knit a hat with plaits or similar vertical pattern, cut as follows: first we knit the two loops next to the braids, so the braids themselves were still intact as long as possible. Remember that each row should become less 6-10 loops, try to cut symmetrically. When to reduce the background between the braids will be difficult, grasp the main elements of the pattern and try to diminish the loop so as not to disturb the harmony.
Useful advice
If it does close nice cap to you does not work, adorn the tip of a large POM-POM or tassel.

Advice 2 : How to close the loop on the cap

Upon completion of the knit hat should be closed or in other words to fix the hinges on the product. Close the loop on the finished part with the help of the knitting, crocheting or needle with a wide eye and blunt tip. To close loops on the caps used the same methods as for other knitted works.
How to close the loop on the cap
You will need
  • - knitted detail of the product;
  • - the spokes;
  • hook;
  • needle with a blunt end;
  • - thread.
Pinning the hinges is mainly used when knitting the following types of headgear:

• hat;
• hats with flap
• berets;
• knitted hats.

For conventional caps, it is sufficient to diminish the loop a few rows after work.
The fastening of loops of the hook. This method is the easiest and fastest. In order to obtain an elastic edge, take the hook same size as needles. If you need to get a tight edge, use a hook two sizes smaller than knitting needles.
At the closing of loops, enter the hook into the edge loop and pull it through the working thread, thus creating an air loop on the hook. Then podavaite hook each loop on the spokes and promazyvaya both stitches as if to knit chain of air loops.
The fastening of loops of promazyvanie. Closed loop should correspond to the main pattern: on front side of the anchoring loops of the front knitting promazyvayut, and on the wrong side – purl.
On the front side of the canvas edge and the following loop provarite the front and then thread through the second edge knit loop. Further promazyvaya already at one loop, stretching it in the loop of the previously knit. On the wrong side of the edge loop clear on the working needle, and the next loop provarite purl and pull it through the removed edge loop. Further promazyvaya already at one loop, holding it in a loop, knit previously.
The fastening of loops with a needle. This is the most time-consuming method, but its application to the edge of the workpiece is especially neat and elastic. When closing the edges of the cap this method is take a needle with a blunt end. Such needles are usually used in the embroidery way "cross".
In the last two rows promazyvaya facial loops and purl loops on the needle take, promazyvaya. The thread must be in front of the canvas. Insert the needle into the edge loop, remove it from the needles and tighten the thread. Then insert the needle into the loop on the left needle, but the loop does not remove. Again thread the needle in the front loop on the right of the secured portion of the web, and at the same time in the next front loop on the needle. After that again insert the needle in the back loop on the needle, tighten the thread and then remove from the needles the two loops.
