Beautiful knitting mittens (jacquard): schemes for different sizes

Among all the existing accessories for winter, the hardest thing for craftswomen is to knit mittens with knitting needles (jacquard). Schemes, even the simplest ones, involve simultaneous work with threads of different colors (at least two shades).

In the course of work, the loops are performed in one color, then in another. The thread that is not used for knitting is left on the wrong side of the fabric, and then picked up to knit specific loops. As a result, on the front side, a pattern is obtained, made up of multi-colored loops, and from the inside - broaches from unused yarn.

Rule for inside out design

You need to work hard to create neat mittens with knitting needles (jacquard). Schemes and descriptions of the knitting process are not always accurate and often bypass one important nuance. To prevent too long broaches, you need to know how to twist the thread correctly.

For example, two colors are used in the work: white and blue. In one of the rows, every ten white loops, one blue loop should be done. If you just stretch the blue yarn from oneloops to another, then long broaches are formed on the wrong side (their length will be equal to the width of ten white loops). In the finished product, especially if you make these mittens (jacquard) with knitting needles, the threads will get tangled when put on. This is bad, because if you tighten the broach, the pattern on the front side may be deformed.

The problem can be solved as follows: knit three loops with white yarn, then twist the working thread with a non-working thread (blue) and again knit three loops with white. Here it is important to guess with tension so as not to overtighten the entire ornament and not weaken the canvas (in this case, blue dots will be visible in the white areas).

Such twists are usually performed after 3-4 loops.

Children's knitting mittens (jacquard): schemes for different sizes

In order to knit the mittens shown in the photo at the beginning of the article, you will need 50 g of threads of the following colors:

  • beige dark;
  • ecru;
  • light beige;
  • pink;
  • ochre;
  • sea wave;
  • pistachio.

Of course, not all materials will be used, a lot will remain. They can be used on a hat or shirtfront to complement the set.

The diagrams below show patterns for knitting. Mittens (jacquard) made in this style are suitable for children and adults, but due to the difference in size, the ornament will be different. So, the designers have developed schemes for children from 3 to 5 years old.

There are only three big flowers here. The pattern is for makinghalf of the product (for example, for knitting the back of a mitten). To complete the entire accessory, the craftswoman should repeat the ornament twice.

The following scheme is for children from 6 to 8 years old.

Here, the height of the ornament remained unchanged, but additional loops on the sides were added to increase the width. The icon resembling a barrel means that you should double crochet and knit an additional loop in the next row. In this case, it is necessary to twist the yarn over when knitting so that a hole does not form.

After the main part of the pattern (three flowers) is ready, the previously added loops should be cut (slash icon).

Big mittens for teenagers and adults

And the last scheme is for children from 9 to 12 years old and for adults.

The designer added another element to the main ornament: now you can see not three, but four flowers.

If the craftswoman wants to make even larger mittens with knitting needles (jacquard), the patterns need to be expanded according to the proposed algorithm: increase the width with new loops or by adding a flower.

Next to the largest repeat, there is a scheme for adding loops to form a thumb (triangle). This is a necessary measure to help give the mitten an anatomically correct shape.

Work sequence

Taking into account all the above aspects, knitting the right mittens should be done as followsway:

  1. Cast on the required number of loops, distribute them on the toe knitting needles and close into a ring.
  2. Knit the cuff with any elastic band (about ten centimeters).
  3. Proceed to the implementation of jacquard and between two adjacent rapports simultaneously with the main pattern, knit a triangle for the thumb. The width of the accessory should be equal to the size of the palm at the base of the thumb.
  4. When the triangle is formed, its loops are transferred to a knitting pin, and the jacquard continues to be knitted in a circle without taking into account the removed elements. That is, the width of the mitten will correspond to the width of four fingers folded together.
  5. When the pattern is finished, you need to try on the product. Larger mittens may require a few extra rows.
  6. When the canvas reaches the level of the little finger, you should start cutting. In four places of each row, one loop is reduced (for example, the first two loops on each knitting needle are combined with one).

Finish knitting

When all the loops are over, go to the knitting of the finger. The previously removed elements are collected on two knitting needles and the required number of rows are knitted (in the course of work they try on the product). Then reduce two loops in each row until you get a neat top.

So you knitted mittens with knitting needles (jacquard)! The schemes proposed in the article will greatly simplify your work.
