After all, it is devoted to how a beginner learns to knit a beautiful exclusive dress crochet.
Tools and materials required for work
As you understand, it is impossible to connect something withoutgood quality tools. The correct choice depends on the thickness of the thread that you are going to use, if you want to make an openwork dress or any other thing. Experienced needlewomen are able to determine the right size of the hook "by eye", and beginners are better to read the special recommendations indicated on the label of the thread. For a good example, you can conduct your own little experiment: take two hooks with different parameters and in turn associate a small element of the pattern you like. As a rule, the samples made with the help of these two instruments will differ significantly from each other. The product associated with a small crochet will turn out to be dense, and the second will look more friable. If you want to realize the idea of creating an openwork summer dress, then it's easier to work with metal tools. They are comfortable knitting products made of fine yarn. Clothing for the off-season and winter, on the contrary, it is better to make a thick hook of plastic. It is better for beginners to acquire a standard set of these tools in advance and always have at hand the length and thickness required. Very important and the second component of knitting - yarn and its quality composition. For those who are just starting to learn how to work with a crochet, it is worth sticking to those recommendations for thread selection, which are always indicated in the description of a particular clothing model (in this case, the dress is meant). Experiments are not forbidden by anyone, however, when mastering the crochet technique, it is better not to rush into the options and stick to proven technology and time. For summer wardrobe items cotton threads or their combination with viscose are perfect. It looks nice about the product associated with linen and bamboo yarn, but with the latter one should be careful, because the things made of it tend to stretch very strongly after washing and therefore easily lose their original attractive appearance and shape. A warm dress or blouse for the off-season and cold season is made of wool or half-wool (with the addition of acrylic) yarn. That's how, along with the beauty of the product, crocheted, give you a feeling of pleasant warmth on a rainy day. If with the choice of materials and tools everything became more or less clear, try to begin by tying a few simple patterns, gradually improving skills and moving to more complex patterns. Only by experience, with the study of appropriate terminology and technology, you will quickly learn the basics of the process of working with a crochet and soon you will be able to easily navigate in ready-made schemes. Feeling confidence in your own abilities and desire to move on to more time-consuming things, you can use the following description and make such a simple and beautiful dress without sleeves.
Knitted dress for beginners and its variations
It should be noted that the sweater, sarafan or dress,crocheted, look very impressive. However, for beginners on the first inexperienced look the process of their creation may seem a matter of special complexity. But if you start with models that are not overloaded with unnecessary details, you will soon be able to fully master the work of the hook. To begin with, try to tie an openwork dress of simple style and sleeveless. His pattern will look like this. First of all, you should make a crochet of mercerized cotton yarn with two identical rectangles. Then they sew together (do not forget to leave a place under the armhole). A band is formed around the circle, which is a coquette, and the shelf and the back of the future dress are collected. Then straps are added, and the edges of the finished product are processed in the technique of "pacing step". Now consider in more detail the circuit itself, which in this version looks like this: To correctly tie the dress, it is necessary to correctly calculate the required number of loops. The pattern presented in the diagram assumes that the total number should be divided by seven. Do not forget to add two more for the edge. So, we knit a pattern of the main pattern. You can slightly retreat from the scheme and do three rows of five air loops, rather than two. It is in this technique that the dress in the picture is executed. So, take thirty-five air loops, we add to them a couple more edge, then three more air for lifting and the first row. The total should be forty-three loops, and the width of the sample will be of the order of twelve centimeters. If you have a trial version, if you liked the pattern, you can start working on the basis of the future dress - a shelf and a backrest. Determine for the beginning your volume of hips and add to it ten centimeters. This will allow the product to sit well on you and after washing, which usually gives a slight shrinkage. The variant described in the article assumes a dress with a width of one hundred centimeters. So, his back and back should be the same, that is, fifty. We perform simple calculations and determine how many loops are needed to tie each part of the right size (thirty-five divide by twelve and get two whole and ninety-two hundredths, multiply them by fifty). You will need one hundred forty-six loops. For multiplicity add one more, then two edge and three for lifting and the first row. In the end, one hundred fifty-five. We knit, adhering to the scheme, rather tightly and pay attention to the previously chosen length. Here it is important to consider that the dress, even with the most gentle washing, will necessarily stretch a few centimeters and sit a little on the width. Do not forget about this feature of the product. End the knitting follows at the stage of readiness of the next third row of five air loops. After the work on the shelf and back is completed, the details must be sewn together to the armhole itself. Now you need to tie a coquette. This process is performed in a circle on the front side of the product, starting from the right angle of the backrest. Each large arch of five air loops should have three columns without a crochet, and the smallest of two - one. In this simple way, you lightly blend the canvas. When the back strapping process is complete, dial fifty air loops and attach the future strap to the back with a bar without the crochet. The width of the coquette depends only on your personal preferences. Knit is better for the back wall, this will make the dress top more neat. At the end of the work, all visible edges of the product need to be processed with the "brisk step". Before this armhole and the bottom should first be tied with a pair of rows of columns without a crochet. Do not forget to remove all unnecessary threads when you completely finish the dress. Then it must be washed and dried on a towel, giving the necessary form. Do not forget to sew the lining, you can from satin or any other fabric with glitter. As a result, you get an exclusive cocktail toilet, beautiful and original. If you want to tie an evening outfit, use black or red yarn. By the way, the simple technique of knitting such a product successfully transforms it into other interesting variants. It's easy to get a popular dress now in the doll style, expanding from the chest. You only need to tie the canvas times one and a half or two wider than those described above, made from fine yarn with a grid pattern. Then top of the details should be decorated with beautiful assemblies, and otherwise adhere to the basic algorithm of work. A beautiful beach dress will come out if we tie more long straps, typing for them not fifty loops, but seventy. A stylish outfit with an American armhole is also quite simple in execution. He looks very impressive on girls with a long graceful neck and a beautiful line of shoulders. The main element of such a dress should be a coquette "under the neck". To do this, provide for short straps and do not knit in a circle, and turning from the back. After all, you need to leave a place under the clasp for the neck, where the head should go. As you can see, you can come up with a lot of variations on creating original dresses from one seemingly very simple crochet pattern. Besides them, there are also ways to create unusual tunics and sarafans. Of course, the beginner will take a lot of time to learn how to adapt the liked patterns to the chosen models of clothes. But patience, persistence and the desire to achieve good results will help you realize the hidden inclinations of the fashion designer and master the skill of crochet. By the way, now at the peak of fashion openwork collars, which you can decorate any dress and blouse. Start small and then you will be able to conquer even the most unachievable peaks.
