Partial knitting, short rows

  • Partial knitting, short rows
  • Short rows front
  • Short rows back
  • Partial knitting - wrap or not

Description

Needles can be temporarily taken out of the knitting pattern when pushed to the front of the knitting bed. This technique can e.g. be used to shape the knit, or to add pockets and flaps.

Instruction:

1

Cast on and knit several rows with carriage on position 1.

2

Let carriage on the right and push the first needle from the left to position D. This needle won't knit. Change thread.

3

Carriage on position 2 (Russel levers on I). Knit two rows.

4

Carriage on the right, Repeat this.

5

Then if you knit with carriage back on position 1 (Russel levers II) // don't need to push back needles, they will knit because of the carriage) you will see holes between the lines.

6

If you want to avoid it (even if that can be part of the design) you have to wrap the thread around the first "non-working" needle

7

Short rows : Same idea as before but knitted only on two rows, for example if you want to have only lines from another colour.

If carriage on the right, Push needles to position D from the left side of the plain knitting. Carriage on position 2, change the thread, knit two rows.

8

Partial knitting to create shapes : Same idea as first but the partial knitting is repeated on a lot of rows. You put a certain amount of needles out of work (position D) and knit about 20 or more rows.

9

If wrapping around the next needle each three rows there is no hole in between.
