Unusual idea: tie a fabric pattern on the needles

A beautiful pattern printed on a fabric basis or an interesting print can be easily connected with knitting needles or crochet. In this master class it is shown how to tie a pattern with knitting needles, but the principle is also suitable for loops made by crocheting.

The method is perfect for creating interesting panels, napkins or even a small tablecloth.

You will need:

  • fabric with a pattern;
  • yarn;
  • 5 knitting needles (for hosiery knitting);
  • sewing machine

First, select an interesting drawing. You can find a fabric of unusual colors, or draw something with acrylic paints. Cut a rectangle or square out of fabric and use a zigzag stitch on its edges with a sewing machine. Back off from the edge of 1 cm and lay a simple straight stitch. You can manually sew these stitches using a simple needle. In this case, use a simple stitches to process the edges, and to fasten the loops, the "forward needle" seam.

We collect loops from each side on one needle.To do this, stretch the yarn through a straight seam with the help of a hook. Although usually for the beginning of knitting the loop is worn on two knitting needles at once, in this case we use one, otherwise the border of the knitted fabric and fabric will look inaccurate.

When the first spoke is typed, tighten the thread a little, and dial the next one. There should be no loop or space in the corner.

Now we knit in a circle, using the fifth working knitting needle. Carefully ensure that there are no voids in the corners. To do this, add one crochet before and after each corner loop in each even row. In this master class, simple knitting was used, alternating rows with facial and back loops, but you can choose any other pattern.

Starting from the third row, knit nakida on each odd row with a crossed loop, so there will be no holes in the corners.

That's how it will look like a simple knitted fabric.

Tie the edge to the desired width and close all the loops. If you are going to knit an openwork pattern, it is better to start with a certain width of a simple satin stitch (alternating front and back rows), and then introduce complications.
