Helix knitting tutorial

When we knit in round we are generally knitting in spiral.aswe are knitting in single color we didn't notice much difference.
     This method comes to great use when we want to knit single row stripes in round as in cap or maybe sweater etc .To knit single row stripes in flat  or with two Needle we hsve to cut the wool after every row and have to weave in so much ends.
  Tutorial
Let's say we have to knit single row stripes in three colours.in round.like the cap below.
 ..  








Suppose we have to knit in 3. Colors red ,purpleand green.
                               
      Then we divide the no of stitches by three.and transfer it to three different dpns.insert a stitch marker to mark the starting and knit the stitches on 1st dpn with red,then change color and knit the stitches on second dpn with green and knit the stitches on third dpn with purple.

Now you have come to the start of second round.here you don't have to change color but start knitting the first dpn with same colour or purple.when you come to the end.you simply have to pick the red colour dangling already  there and start knitting the second dpn as shown in fig.note,* when you change color you should not cross the yarns as you normally do when changing Colors in knitting .when you have to change color the other yarn is already there to be taken and knit.amd you continue. 

This similar mehod can be modified accordingly to knit two ,four or multicolored single row stripes.Always remember that last dpn of the row and the first dpn of the next row is knit with same colour.

Tunisian crochet jumper

This is a Tunisian crochet jumper l made for my 10 yr niece.this is made in 8ply wool hence it became somewhat heavy.but it got completed in so less time.
It is a plain stitch.so I embroidered the front with bullion roses in 3 ply wool
I knitted the border in Tunisian purl stitch to avoid curling but it started to fold on itself rather than sideways curling .so I had to crochet a shell border to avoid the curl.

Another one pass brioche cap in two colors

 As the brioche fabric is wider with respect to stockinette or rib, the cast on has to be very flexible here I have used German twisted cast on as the Italian cast on is very problematic for casting on in round on dpns.

Striped cap knitted in round दो रंगों की धारीदार गोलाई मे बुनी हुई टोपी

This technique is mainly useful when we are knitting narrow stripes  ie one row stripe.
When we are coming to the colourchange row we knit to the end stitch.then we take the last stitch back on the left needle .and put the strand from first Color away to the left .then we take the strand from second color on the right needle as we are taking a yarnover.as shown in photo.
     इस तकनीक का उपयोग पतली धारियों को बिनते समय किया जाता है।
जब दूसरे रंग की ऊन लगानी हो तो आखिरी फंदे तक पहले रंग से बुने।फिर आखिरी फंदे को वापस बाईं सलाई पर ले लें।पहले वाली ऊन को भी बाईं तरफ हटा दें ।फिर दूसरे रंग के ऊन को दाऐ सलाई पर फोटो
की तरह रखें ।
 Then put the last stitch in first Color back on the right needle.
फिर पहले रंग से बुने फंदे को
वापस दाई सलाई फर डालें







                                           Now put the yarn  from first Color on the left needleas if to yarnover as in the photo below.अब पहले रंग वाले ऊन को इस तरह बाईं सलाई पर ले जैसे हम फंदे बढ़ाने के वक्त लेते है।
फोटो की तरह।
Now knit the yarnover and the stitch in first Color together in second color.and knit the whole row in second Color normally till you reach the first yarnover.ie to the end of row. अब.ऊपर लिए हुए ऊन और पहले फंदे कोदूसरे रंग के ऊन से एक साथ बुने।अब पूरी सलाई कोनौरमल तरीके से बुने जबतक कि जो पहला ऊन जो फंदे के आगे लिया था। Now knit the yarnover and the last stitch together . Hence your colour change is complete. अब ऊपर लिए हुए ऊन और आखिरी फँदे को एक साथ बुने।इस प्रकार आपका रंग बदलने का कम पूरा हुआ।
