- 00:00: I welcome Alexandra Krasnobaeva I offer today deal with matter how calculate the required the number of loops knitting any products Today I will tell you about any measurements must be removed in order to calculate product width how to knit a sample of how to measure it and how to calculate the required the number of loops knitting any
- 00:30: products first understand what are the measurements needed in order to to find out the width products for this you will need normal tape measure or if you do not have you can measure their measurements and thread then this thread make any tickers So if the length your articles short 60 centimeters if you such as knit some short a sweater or cardigan then you need a girth chest girth measured according to the most projecting it. if
- 01:00: do you have the product length 60 cm if it is a cardigan or direct payments or just extended sweater for this we you need to measure hip girth hip ratio also changes in the wide together but if there is a caveat you knit on the children you measure the girth Breast anyway because children the chest is always greater thighs and if you chest wider hips you also measure chest there is always a percent
- 01:30: Ten girls have which is chest thighs wider However, in most cases always hip larger breasts and more if there is a nuance you have a stomach girth more than girth hips and breasts while guided by He has also such cases it is not necessary for This should forget nevertheless to focus on abdominal girth, and so we suggested that the length of our cardigan or sweater 60 centimeters hip girth well, if you assume 95
- 02:01: like sweater tight or cardigan hipsters you and leave this yardstick not add no centimeters meaning your sweater or your cardigan and to 95 cm if you want to a sweater or cardigan I sat a little you can freely add 5 centimeters to this if you want to measure some or cardigan sweater oversayz or just a fact you add 10, and it I centimeters longer suggested that I I need a sweater
- 02:32: enough free cut but not I added a 5 centimeters and He received 100 centimeters party block ie the width of the backrest sweater or width forehand my sweater will be 50 centimeters so I need to calculate how many loops score for the width of my sweater was 50 centimeters for this we need to link let's sample with his associate see how We need to correct count it width count the number of loops, we found that the width
- 03:03: Our sweater 100 cm width Front and back is half of the sockeye salmon that is 50 centimeters let's just it We write not to and forget to focus on this width Before you contact sample, we must take motochek yarn hands and explore first label need to find out what we have spoke tie pattern I advise you to knit multiple samples diameters spoke to to find out what kind of density more for our case label
- 03:33: written diameter spokes 5-6 millimeters I took the number 5 spokes ie five millimeters, and bound a sample so I I know what I see rather weak so I took the spokes not smaller diameter 6 millimeters and 5 millimeters if you You know that you are knitting tight enough I advise to take once yet more if greater diameter you do not know how you then knit knit a few samples needles 5 mm needles five and a half and 6
- 04:03: then millimeters will have your measuring more exact very often happens so that diameter of spokes is not your corresponds to diameter of the label you worry is maybe that's why safely knit topic whom you spoke convenient and density knitting by which you satisfied I took yarn kartohu world Noyan I have this one Here milky number to 335 if you are interested You can
- 04:33: use this yarn it is very Heat is not barbed and is suitable for Knits for adults how I see sample if I yarn that is knitted spoke more than five I dial millimeters in the spokes 12 loops if I have yarn thin and I'm knitting spoke at least five I dial millimeters 22 loops advise you gain loops sample it and given the edge why I type 12 loops because 10 loop I
- 05:04: to measure tape measures not taking into account the edge and likewise 22 loops I type I consider only 20 loops and two edge to take into account will not your the measurement will be more accurate so I tied sample scored 12 loops on needle 5 millimeters and knit around up so that I get small square you can recruit and more and the number of loops knit up your sample point is you to clear Count the number of I centimeters
- 05:34: I used to knit small samples I this is enough and We always measure the Now there are accurate take a centimeter I'm warning tape you need to sample necessarily it needs to be washed soak in warm water and dry on horizontal surface then your measurements will be one hundred percent right if you You do not do well wash product after you Make him tied moist heat processing make sure the width You do not coincide with the the desired width and
- 06:04: exactly the same length so after as an example of tied it needs to be washed suppose that my I wash sample I am going to have calculate the required the number of loops my knitting sweaters I'm in a quiet able to keep sample and applying measuring tape Vodka first pit laziness and as the first edge loop I measure it the middle of not from above or below on the middle of the most accurate sample width and I put it too until the end
- 06:35: penultimate loop not given an edge like this as you see I got six and a half centimeters if you You will edge take into account your width is inaccurate because the edge do not lie because the lie Here's the loop are in the middle of the sample and so I write I gained 12 loops do not given the edge I measured only at 10 I have 10 stitches up to six half I need centimeters 50 centimeters for my
- 07:06: sweater and I am writing 50 centimeters and I you need to know here is the number in the same way as the we have done when knitting Academician and if you do not it looked more video watch it sure we take calculator and believe We multiply 10 by 50 and divide your half we get 70 6.9 I I advise you to round it number to e.g. seventy-seven loops and so we and you
- 07:37: sees fit the number of loops In order to link Here is such a sweater front embroidery if you have a pattern What else if you knit gum you must tie pattern for gum to the front smooth surface if you There are patterns for all that occur in your product Front I need a smooth surface but dial sweater width 50 cm this number of spokes from this yarn seventy nine Why loops 79 because we are 77 Add 2
- 08:08: edge and get 79 so we we have found the right number you can safely recruit seventy nine loops and knit a sweater but there are times when pattern has its some rapport and the need to calculate not just a number multiple loops one and fold 7 and e.g. June 5, and so on numbers may be different let us now together choose elementary pattern and count how calculate the required
- 08:38: the number of loops for knitting sweaters or any other products if we the report is not a multiple of I took one simple pattern for us to his examples Design the number of loops our need for sweaters provided if the sweater is I linked this pattern let us first We count the number loops need to our sample look at this diagram with arrows Unknown border We report our pattern first need full count All cells are enter our scheme
- 09:09: their number should be our loops on the spokes necessarily less the number of loops pattern and sample we can not score and so We believe 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 ie 9 loops we must dial 100 interest but as you I remember a sample dial either 12 or 22 loops around this the so I have add another several loops In order to properly count the number centimeters in my sample and now we just add
- 09:39: the number of loops between the arrows at We did add the 9 more 10 11 12 13 14 then we have 14 loops You must dial to In order to link our sample let's write to remember and type them I place on the spokes I gained 14 loops and Knit 1 already backing a series of our scheme as the same now look at our scheme and knit sample as a general look at the scheme and knit any product under this scheme To begin, we must
- 10:09: provyazat 1 arrows let We do it together left to knit one arrow knit plus sign is bead and then 2 purl from us Scheme 3 and as a facial You see we have rested arrow now we you need to knit this arrows to report arrows as many times how much we placed our products I placed it in 2 times the first time I tied and now I knit and the second once again we knit 2 purl and 3 facial, and we must
- 10:39: two finish Wrong to It is no longer part of our report completed in After exactly an edge also we were binding a back row and all facial I'm a little I knit this pattern as Then tell how calculate the number of loops this scheme for our articles 50 I tied centimeters A sample of this pattern I gained 14 loops and linked ver 2 rapport let us now change this pattern and count how
- 11:10: the number of loops We need to link our sweater on width 50 cm I take a centimeter and tape measure somewhere in the middle of our the sample does not forget that is before do these measurements sample needed comprehend to do moist heat treatment as I'm doing the right thing I tell you later his other video we are putting measuring tape so that it does not I touched the edge loops to it concerned only our workers loops which are part of our pattern attached entirely in
- 11:40: the quiescent state not stretching much because as you can see sample can stretch of god like without turning it on quietly in state here in this as putting a our centimetric tape we get 8 centimeters remember In these 14 loops still have two let's edge that is, we write the measured loops 12 and they have equal 8 we need centimeters calculate how much 50 centimeters is loops that is found Now this value
- 12:10: let's again take calculator 12 multiplied by 50 and divide by 8 get 75,575 this is the figure at which we 50 will see it all easy enough well, let's not forget that in our sample our gaze in there's this report two loops are you need to add more this is the first time the second time we have which have rapport we necessarily must fit our pattern in our 50
- 12:41: centimeters if you finished knitting in the middle of the report you pattern will not work, he will curve usb edge it will be completely not nice and will not suitable for wear therefore it is necessary pay attention to the number of loops rapport Let them count between the arrows again Two Three May 4 it hence our rapport 5 is a loop This means that our 75 centimeters have stacked loops 5 must be divisible by 5 To do this, we divide 75
- 13:12: 5 well, as you have to understand that these 5 sts, we placed in 75 turns 15 or 15 reports have placed our loop if you get some some non-integer number that is out so that e.g. divide by 74 5 15 is not no way then we get specially add the desired quantity the number of loops or that is, if we take away we've got seventy four
- 13:42: My one loop add get 75 if we are 71 turned e.g. we can loop 1 subtract and get 7070 It is also a multiple of 5 minutes look at their situation, but the fact that it It must be divisible by 5 the number of loops in rapport it is one hundred percent otherwise your sure pattern will not work and let's not forget about these two which hinges the report does not include the have received in number 75 we add even those two spoons loop as you can see 2
- 14:12: to purl to our pattern She looked beautiful in our product get 77 and not forget our edge that is to 70 blue we will add 2 edge so way we 79 is obtained 5 if you type seventy nine loop link here This pattern here you have it fits 15 times plus 2 loops to be tailored and you just come 50 right centimeters to to connect your beautiful sweater 100 percent after
- 14:43: you do this at you get beautiful products correct width right outside so no views neglect knitting sample all you read everything You should have something like you see anything complex there is to link the sample and calculate it width I think that you have these measurements take no more hour so necessarily lie samples are considered loop count centimeter, and Good Luck Thanks to all of you for your attention till
