Openwork knitting is one of the most popular varieties of this type of needlework. The creation of an openwork fabric occurs due to the execution of yarns, which alternate with front and back loops. It is the presence of yarns that gives the pattern lightness. Nakidas are usually thrown in the front row (less often - in the wrong side), knitted, respectively, in the wrong side (or in the second case - in the front), and they are knitted like a regular loop.
Openwork knitting is performed according to the patterns, which, as a rule, display only the front rows, because all the loops of the wrong side are knitted either purl, or "how the knitting looks", i.e. they are knitted over the front ones facial, over purl - purl. In order for the number of loops in the row not to increase due to the addition of crochets, some of the loops are knitted together. Therefore, their number remains always the same, no matter how many yarns are made in a row. When using Scottish knitting techniqueyarn overs are done in the front purl rows. This makes the drawing even lighter and more airy.
