Plaid on a knitting machine

There is always so little time for needlework. Pictures of everything that I want so much fly in my head. Sometimes such thoughts that there will not be enough a lifetime to do all the beautiful things that are found on the Internet pages. That's enough, because knitting can be faster with special knitting machines.

It is enough to purchase a good model with numerous functions and a punch card will do everything that you so dreamed about. A couple of models of amazing rugs connected by car.


For a knitting machine, it is better to use special types of yarn for a knitting machine. Beginners and even experienced craftsmen are not always able to guess the correct thickness of the thread.

Plus, additional settings that the equipment will require on such strings are not precisely marked. But the master is better not to disturb so often.

Want a quiet knitting - choose the right thread.


A blanket is also required. Even a children's blanket can not do without such a detail . All products must have their own clear size. Or you have to dissolve the whole product, which the knitting machine so diligently performed.

Knitted blanket for a child

The bright and lively model of this plaid can be made almost by a robot. The product is very smooth, even stitches, even patterns. Line to line, all this is more than flawless.

To work, you will need:

  • yarn for a knitting machine yarn threads of several colors (white 3 skeins, yellow 2 skeins and mint 1);
  • single knitting machine.

Threads contain acrylic. They do not have wool, which can easily provoke an allergy in a child. The blanket consists of three stripes, which are then simply sewn together.

First strip

At a density of 10, you need to dial 72 loops using the entanglement method. Change the colors as shown in the diagram below:

  • b from 0 to 40;
  • W from 41 to 60;
  • b from 61 to 66;
  • m from 67 to 80;
  • b from 81 to 100;
  • W from 101 to 110;
  • b from 111 to 130;
  • m from 131 to 150;
  • b from 151 to 200;
  • W from 201 to 240;
  • b from 241 to 298.

Where the designation m is the mint color of the threads, w is yellow, respectively, and b is its white color for yarn.

Close the hinges with a pigtail.

Second and third bands

Knit the brightest stripes of the second and third in the same way as the first, but according to the changed pattern:

  • b from 0 to 20;
  • m from 21 to 36;
  • b from 37 to 80;
  • W from 81 to 100;
  • b from 101 to 122;
  • m from 123 to 130;
  • b from 131 to 150;
  • W from 151 to 190;
  • b from 191 to 200;
  • m from 201 to 216;
  • b from 217 to 240;
  • W from 241 to 270;
  • b from 271 to 298.

Where the designation m is the mint color of the threads, w is yellow, respectively, and b is its white color for yarn.

Hinges for such a last row (namely 299), like the first strip, need to be closed with a pigtail.

Important! Before stitching the stripes, it is better to walk along them with steam. So they will not curl and get a more even stitching.


The edge of the canvas needs to be worn on the needles. Put on 10 loops and skip one (send the needle to the inoperative position). So all over. Knit at a density of 9 in all 4 rows. You get a false elastic 10 to 1. You can decorate with threads (fringe in the places of missing 11 loops in each place).

Large plaid on a knitting machine

A large product is needed for the hall. Love to take a nap with your loved one before watching TV shows - this model is for you. He needs a knitting machine, good yarn and a punch card pattern.

To work, you will need:

  • Turkish yarn with the same multi-thread sections;
  • 4th class knitting machine;
  • card.

We set up a blanket machine at density 9. Knit two strips and sew the product. Make sure that the jacquard does not move. The plaid turned out to be about 2 by 1.5 m in size. Very warm and pleasant. Jacquard in this case is simply not visible. But it is very beautiful and original. On the wrong side, very narrow broaches are obtained, no more than 3 loops.

Still thinking about the appropriateness of such a purchase. The machine is a very convenient product, especially when you really want to get smooth loops and a quick result.

It is always very long to knit Jacquard by hand, although it turns out beautifully, but not everyone is ready to constantly shift the threads and not allow the slightest oversight on the wrong side, the threads should not be intertwined and other subtleties in creating a plaid with hands just push the novice away. A machine is a very good alternative, especially for a large canvas. There are more creative ideas, high-quality yarn and even loops.
