Knitted flaps

  • Knitted flaps

Description

Partial knitting can be used to construct flaps on the surface of the knit.

Instruction:

1

Cast on the desired number of stitches. Knit in plain with the carriage in position A until you reached the height where you want to place the knitted flap.

2

Let carriage on the right side of the working needles.

We are going to keep the needles working for the flap in two times to avoid any floats. If plain knit uses 45 needles for example, we can keep 20 in the middle for the flap.

So we consider first the left side of the flap : push from B to D position (out of work) the needles you don't want to use on the left side.

3

Set the carriage in position B. Knit one row.

4

Carriage on the left.

Push now the needles which won't be used on the right side from B to D position.

Knit ten rows with the needles in the middle only.

5

On the way back, to get all needles working again, we will avoid floats for the second time :

Carriage on the left, Push the needles from D to B position on the right side. Knit one row.

6

Carriage on the right, Push now the needles from D to B position on the left side. Knit one row.

All needles are back to knit.

7

Use the transfer tool. Connect the first and last flap rows with hang-up stitches technique.

8

Set the carriage back in position A.

9

Keep on knitting.
