If you are a beginner in knitting, making even just simple things like a scarf or a mobile phone pouch seems very difficult. You need a pattern to follow and in Ormond, there lots of patterns designed for people who are just starting to learn the craft. Ormond patterns for knitting are given for free and if you know how to use them, you can easily make knitted things.
Here are three things that you should know about knitting patterns:
1. Knitting patterns are designed to guide or instruct you on how to make something knitted. However, they do not say what to do using words and sentences. Instead, some abbreviations and numbers are used. In order to be able to follow the pattern, you need to understand all the abbreviations and terminologies used. If you do not understand what the symbols and number mean, you need to study terminologies first in order to follow easily Ormond knitting patterns. Important symbols that you must understand are K for knit stitch; P for purl stitch; CO for cast on; BO for bind off; Inc for increase and Dec for decrease; Rep for repeat; Sl for slip a stitch; YO for yarn over and Tog for together. By knowing these abbreviations, you are now ready to follow the pattern to make something.
2. Ormond knit patterns must be followed in order to produce a good output. If you miss following an instruction, you cannot come up with the right product. For instance, you are making baby’s boots. Missing a stitch in one of the boots could make it look different from the other boot. When you are using yarns of various colors to come up with a beautiful design, forgetting a stitch or not following an instruction will destroy the beauty of the design.
3. One knitting pattern Ormond could only be used in making something it was made for. For example, a pattern for baby’s pointed hat could only be used for making such hat. You cannot use it for making a scarf, a sweater or a shirt. This means that if you want to make various things knitted, you must also have the patterns for them. If you want to be a master knitter, concentrate first on one pattern. If you want to make hats, just concentrate on that until you have mastered the pattern. Then, proceed to another pattern that you want to make. You cannot make one perfectly without mastering a pattern. Hence, a pattern is very important in knitting because it serves as your guide in making beautiful outputs.
If you don’t know how to knit yet, it’s time for you to look for yarn, knitting needle, and a pattern. You’ll surely love the feeling of being able to create something.
