Fichu - this is what they called the shawl, made of lace or batiste, which was used by French fashionistas to cover deep cuts on a dress in the 17th century. Today, this piece of clothing has become quite popular again. Only now it is most often knit by hand, and it very much resembles a lacy kerchief made in the form of a straight triangle with one elongated end. Also found fishyu in the form of a half-ring, enlarged in the center and narrower at the ends. It is this version of the product that we suggest you perform on your own, following our step by step instructions.
For lace fishes, you will need 2 skeins of Kid mohair ALIZE (62% - mohair, 38% -polyamide, 25 g - 250 m), knitting needles No. 5.
Dialing loops: on 2 needles at the same time, dial 309 loops, so that there is a small distance between them. On how freely they will be recruited depends on the "pattern" of the fichu edge.
The first row, for fastening, knit with purl loops. It is he who determines which side of our product will be left, and which - right.
Start knitting each row with 1 edge loop (front) and end it with 19 loop strings (see picture) plus edge edge loop. Knit strictly according to the pattern, repeating 18 reports in a row. There are a total of 18 loops in each report. For the sake of convenience, the edge loops are shown in yellow, the green additional loop for the last, eighteenth report, and the blue squares of the loops are shaded (ie, you simply skip them when you knit, as if you don’t see them) .
Having knitted all 48 rows of an openwork pattern, we proceed to knitting the shortened rows. They are tied in the following way: 1) Knit to the middle of a fichu, mark this place with a marker for convenience. After that, perform another 15 loops. 2) Expand the work on the wrong side.Remove the first loop as purl and knit 15 + 15 loops. And again turn the work to the front side. 3) Tie 29 loops, and knit the 30th together with the loop from the previous row (ie, 2 loops together). Due to this, the product will not have "holes". Next, we knit 3 more loops and turn the work again. 4) knit 4 rows like this: 18 p. + 14 p. + 2 p. Together + 3 p. we will knit the next row in the same way as 3, 4 shortened rows, only the number of knitted loops on the needles will increase each time, since in each row we add 3 sections from the rows that are not yet knitted without a pattern. When all the shortened rows will be connected, as the decoration of the edge, knit again 43 and 45 rows of the pattern. Using the hook, freely close the edge of the fichu. It is better to take a very thick hook; if there is none, you can do it this way: after each closed loop, dial one air loop.
Dress up the “tails” of free threads. You should have such a kerchief:
Very carefully wash the fish in a solution of water and shampoos.Squeeze the shawl through a towel, twisting them into the "roll" and lightly pressing it. After shaping the phishyu, stretching the carved edges, secure them with needles on the surface - block the scarf until it is completely dry.
And all your openwork, thin and very warm cape is ready.
