Knitted patchwork

 

Patchwork knitting technique

 

Knitted patchwork

It’s my profound conviction that patchwork knitted products not only allow you to use all remains of yarn, but they also accentuate your individuality. Patchwork has long ceased to be just a way to get rid of the shreds. Patchwork is knitted with needles and crocheted.

 


Patchwork technique is used to knit clothing, interior items, toys ... There are some fairly well-known elements of knitted patchwork. The most common element is the square "pot holder"

 

 It’s very simple to knit itIt’s very simple to knit it. Cast on requied amount of stitches (+1 central). In the middle of each second row knit 3 stitches together. In the middle of each first row remove the central stitch without knitting. Do that until one stitch remains. Usually the garter stitch is used to knit squares. Detailed description you can easily find on the Internet.

You might wonder why knitted patchwork is discussed on illusion knitting site. I just decided to combine these two great techniques. The scheme is very simple. For convenience I drew the diagram in the form of a square. The red line indicates a row. Green cell means 3 stitches together or removed stitch.

•    1st row. Cast-on row. 30 stitches +1

•    5th row. All knit stitches. Remove the central stitch. Yarn is behind the cloth.

Repeat until one stitch remains. Then bind off this last stitch. As you can see, there is nothing complicated about the illusion patchwork.
