How to read the patterns of baubles?
Usually, banners are created according to certain schemes. How to read the patterns of baubles? In this there is nothing complicated. To begin with, some basic information. In the process of weaving, 2 threads are involved, which are called:
- working - she knits directly to her
- Knot - the thread on which the knots are tied.
In the course of weaving, these threads can change their status (ie the working thread can become knotted and vice versa). There are 2 types of simple nodes (their other name is looped), respectively:
- the left hinge unit (i.e., the working thread knots the nodules to the left of the knot)
- right hinge node (working thread is to the right of the knot).
During the process of weaving, the knots are tied in two,those. there can be 4 combinations (left-left, right-right, left-right, right-left). Let's consider them in more detail, in order to understand how to read the scheme of weaving the baubles.
- Direct node (English version of foward knot, i.e. in the scheme it can be denoted as fk) is a combination of 2 left nodes. Schematically it is depicted in the form of an arrow (which graphically represents the direction of the transition of the working thread), directed diagonally down and to the right. The color of the node in the diagram (represented by a circle) is the color of the working thread.
- The back node or the backward knot (short for the schemes-bk) is a combination of 2 right hinges. On the diagram, it is depicted in the form of an arrow directed diagonally to the left and down.
- The left frivolity is the next variant of the complexnode. In English it sounds like forward backward knot (or abbreviated - fbk). It combines the left and right loop nodes. The graphic image of such a node is a broken line that repeats the path of the thread: first to the right, then to the left, then to the right, the arrow is also pointing down.
- Right frivolity or backward forward knot (orbriefly - bfk) combines the right and left loop nodes. Working thread goes first to the right to the left, and then back. The diagrams also, as a rule, reflect the course of the working thread.
