DIY patchwork bedspread for beginners: cozy and beautiful

Even a beginner can sew a patchwork blanket from squares Even a beginner can sew a patchwork blanket from squares It is not sewn so quickly, and for beginners it may take much more time, but such sewing can be the first truly high-quality thing in the house that you did with your own hands..

Do-it-yourself bedspread patchwork

Review more than one master class in order to decide not only how your product will look (you can see it in the photo gallery as well), but whether you can handle all this technology as a beginner. A detailed master class, of course, simplifies the work, but do not immediately take on a difficult task. The first sewing should be fun, and wading through the jungle of unfamiliar technology can discourage you and further try yourself in patchwork.

Any high-quality handicraft not only decorates the room, but also brings to the interior an atmosphere of comfort, warmth and natural brightness Any high-quality handicraft not only decorates the room, but also brings to the interior an atmosphere of comfort, warmth and natural brightness

Where does sewing begin? Follow the instructions:

  • Determine the size of the bedspread;
  • Choose the color scheme that will be in the style of the interior of the room where the product is intended;
  • Prepare the fabric: stripes, pieces, shreds, squares;
  • Prepare the fabric that will become the seamy side of the product;
  • From the tools you will need: scissors, needles / pins, thread, a sewing machine, a pencil and a square ruler (but you can also use a square template).

Let’s say you are making a product from squares. Why from squares? It will be definitely easier for a beginner to do this – for beginners to cut different shapes with their own hands and then connect them patternedly is a real test.

You can choose any pattern for the bedspread that you can do. You can choose any pattern for the bedspread that you can do.

Of course, if there is a photo or video of a master class, view it in detail. But even if you have only schemes in front of you, you can start sewing with them..

An important point: before proceeding with the preparation of squares, the fabric should be prepared for work. Just soak it in hot water for ten minutes, and then simply rinse it in clean warm water..

If we are to be completely consistent, it would be nice to show the real class and starch the fabric. It’s worth doing – it will be easier to work with the material. And, of course, iron the fabric well..

How to sew a patchwork bedspread

Small workshop on making quick squares from fabric.

Just four steps:

  • Take two different shreds of fabric and cut two equal strips out of them;
  • Fold them on the wrong side and sew, secure by sewing by carefully smoothing the seam;
  • Now measure the width of the resulting product, and cut the same strip (of the same width) from the third piece of fabric;
  • Fold it with the received part already with the front side, and make the seams on both sides.

As a result, you should have a sort of double-sided sleeve. Put this canvas on the table and cut squares out of it according to a template or a special ruler..

In order to cut the squares correctly, it is important to use a template or ruler. In order to cut the squares correctly, it is important to use a template or ruler.

It is difficult to come up with such a simpler scheme, any beginner will repeat this master class. This will be followed by the stage of connecting the squares. From the details you can get whatever patterns you want – simple geometric, and fantasy, and snakes, and mosaics. For the first time, you can lay out a simple ornament to make it easier to cope, and you do not get confused about what you are going to sew.

When you have decided on the pattern, the squares can be sewn. First comes the sewing of the longitudinal stripes, after which you must iron the seams. Then we sew the resulting stripes into one canvas. And again the next stage is a thorough ironing. After that, you will see that the finished front side is obtained..

Sew a patchwork bedspread: the final part

The front side is not the whole product. Next, with your own hands, you must sew the front part to the wrong side. Chintz is excellent as a purl fabric. Batiste can also be made inside out.

Further, adhere to the following scheme of work:

  • Lay the piece of fabric for the wrong side face down on the table;
  • Put a synthetic winterizer on top of the seamy fabric, if your bedspread has a blanket function (otherwise, the synthetic winterizer is not needed);
  • The next layer is the front side, that same patchwork of squares;
  • Either sweep it with your own hands, or you just need to chop off the entire product with pins and quilt it on a sewing machine.

In order for the cover to have a shape, it is necessary to use a sealing material in the form of a padding polyester In order for the cover to have a shape, it is necessary to use a sealing material in the form of a padding polyester

How to sew a thing correctly? The easiest way to do this is along the borders of the squares, but if you assume some kind of pattern, you can also quilt along the pattern. True, for beginners this is a rather difficult task (a separate stitch master class will help you in this case).

The last step is edging. It’s easy to do: take a strip of fabric about 8 cm wide, and the length should be slightly more than one side of the product. The fabric must be folded in half, attached to the front of the garment and sewn on. Tuck the excess edges of the edging to the wrong side of the thing, wrap the edging on the wrong side of the product and sew from the front side. The line will run over the canvas. The other sides of the thing are edged in the same way..

Having comprehended the basic basics of this skill, you can move on to more complex ornaments. Having comprehended the basic basics of this skill, you can move on to more complex ornaments.

This is the simplest master class; in such a product, schemes are not particularly needed. Above all, do not overdo it with the patchwork pattern..

Such a bedspread can be used to decorate a bed, sofa, and sometimes it is also used as a tablecloth. But what if you decide to make a patchwork product for a baby bed? Maybe it’s worth taking the first step in patchwork sewing just from this?

Amazing patchwork: DIY blanket

Each patchwork product is unique: it is simply impossible to repeat it exactly Each patchwork product is unique: it is simply impossible to repeat it exactly.If you look at the numerous photos or videos showing patchwork things in the interior, you are amazed – such man-made beauty uniquely decorates any home. For novice craftswomen, patchwork is a technique in which you can find yourself and start decorating your house with your own hands. And the very first work can be a patchwork blanket, or bedspreads in the same technique..

Patchwork quilt of squares

You need to start by repeating other people’s mistakes. True, repetition of the theoretical. Often, such a huge, difficult work ends in disappointment – the needlewoman in the blanket does not like something.

Easy to Difficult: If you are new to this technique, it is best to start with simple blocks. Easy to Difficult: If you are new to this technique, it is best to start with simple blocks.

So, the main mistakes of beginners:

  • Color spectrum. Don’t try to grasp the immensity. Find a photo of the color wheel (spectrum), where you will see all the color combinations. A blanket that is too colorful will not suit every interior style. Some combinations still need to be taken into account, look at the video, looking in detail at how a patchwork quilt looks in a specific setting.
  • The fabrics must be the same in thickness and structure..
  • All seams need to be ironed out very carefully, any master class focuses on this.
  • During assembly, stretching of the edges can be allowed – be careful in this process, parts of the bedspread may deform.
  • The pattern should have general logic – clear schemes, pictures, and not patchwork chaos.

Review any master class, re-read it several times. Pay attention to the schemes: schemes allow you not to get confused.

Master class: quilt patchwork

First, of course, it’s worth collecting all the necessary tools and materials together. Make sure you have everything you need.

Namely:

  • Pieces of fabric for squares;
  • Schemes or patterns;
  • DIY cardboard template (plastic is also possible);
  • Scissors;
  • Chalk;
  • Pins;
  • Threads;
  • Sewing machine.

To work with fabric with your own hands, first of all, you need to prepare a workplace with everything you need To work with fabric with your own hands, first of all, you need to prepare a workplace with everything you need

Further, the master class involves step-by-step actions. If you yourself are subsequently going to arrange your master class, do not forget to take step-by-step photos or videos.

Then stick to the following scheme:

  • Decide on the pattern. For beginners, blankets with a large pattern or pattern are preferable (see the photo for examples). Since you have to sew a blanket from squares, the pattern can be quite simple, geometric (snake, mosaic).
  • Choice of fabric. You need some bright enough shreds that will go to the front side. You will also need a plain canvas for the wrong side, as well as a synthetic winterizer for the layer. If you select fabrics that are the same texture, they will not wrinkle the first time you wash them..
  • For beginners, precise fit is equally important. For this, there are templates, they can be cardboard or plastic (examples can be seen in the photo). When laying out patterns, consider the direction of the share thread.
  • After cutting the required number of squares, proceed with the assembly. The shreds are applied to each other with the front side, and they need to be sewn along the marking line from the inside out. Do everything according to the terms of the color scheme. After the front is sewn, iron it well.
  • On a table or other level surface spread out the fabric for the back of the bedspread (quilt). Put a synthetic winterizer on top, straighten the fabric with your own hands. Cut out the insulation with some margin on each side. The insulation must be quilted, otherwise it will “walk” on the blanket. The stitch patterns are always the same – from the center to the edges.
  • The master class is drawing to a close. You need to pin all three layers with needles or pins. Align the layers to the topmost one. It remains only to sew. Tape around the edges will help keep the blanket from slipping, so take the time to sew on tape or something similar..

Before starting to cut the fabric, it is important to decide on the colors and patterns. Before starting to cut the fabric, it is important to decide on the colors and patterns.

Regarding the squares: to make it easier to work, use diagrams on paper. On the diagram, you lay out the squares (their number is from 48 and more), and so you will not be lost in what to sew with. Take a photo of such a calculation, which will also serve as a reference for you..

How to sew a patchwork quilt: color selection

The master class will also be complemented by tips for beginners on how to choose colors for a do-it-yourself blanket. For such a blanket of squares, you need to pick up shreds that go well.

Consider combinations of the most popular colors:

  • Red combined with blue, yellow, gray and green;
  • Yellow can be emphasized in green, blue, brown, golden;
  • Burgundy “Friendly” with green, pink, gray and blue;
  • Gray goes well with black, red, pink, green, light blue, yellow, blue;
  • Brown goes well with beige, yellow, golden.

If you don’t want to make a blanket that is too colorful, three colors are the golden mean. A baby blanket can be more colorful, and patchwork pieces in it can be with funny and funny drawings.

A well-chosen color scheme will allow a patchwork quilt to become an important element of the interior.

And now advice for beginners on how to decorate such blankets with their own hands. For example, you make a blanket from squares as a present for your child. Today it has become a tradition to give a patchwork blanket to a newborn. You can make festive embroidery on one of the squares with your own hands. Wishes, baby’s date of birth or author’s signature.

Creative patchwork: beautiful and easy for beginners

You have to work hard to start making crafts. You have to work hard to start making crafts. Getting started is never easy. Patchwork also needs to be learned. Not everything turns out right away: the hands do not obey, the eye fails. For this, there is the experience of the masters. Having mastered video lessons, photo materials and a master class with their tips and secrets, you can safely bring to life any idea – from making a simple potholder to a new sofa upholstery.

Patchwork for beginners

Patchwork is very popular today – needlework, in which a single piece is assembled from colored patches of fabric with a conceived pattern according to the principle of a mosaic. The result of such a fascinating process can be a recognizable image of some objects, geometric ornaments or bizarre patterns. Ideas for patchwork can be taken from photo and video lessons, as well as master classes.

Initially, the shreds were sewn because of the economy of material, and the patchwork had very specific tasks. Now the patchwork technique is a desire to create beauty, enjoying this magical action. Quilted bedspreads, decorative panels, blankets and pillows, kitchen pot holders, updated furniture, clothes are pleasing to the eye.

To understand the basics of the patchwork technique, you need to get acquainted with its main types at master classes and videos To understand the basics of the patchwork technique, you need to get acquainted with its main types at master classes and videos

The basics patchwork sewing:

  1. Accuracy and accuracy. The patchwork technique is not a complicated technology, but it is not always easy to implement an idea, as in MK. The guarantee of success in patchwork is precision and accuracy. The patterns of the potholders or blankets must be precise and very neatly stitched. The fabric requires preliminary processing (decating). It must be soaked or washed, dried and ironed, sorted by color.
  2. Work with iron. A patchwork iron is an important tool. In the course of work, the seams must be ironed; when decorating fabrics, they must also be ironed. Ready-made potholders or bags are steamed from the front side and always in one direction. The seams must also be smoothed in one direction. Then they will not crumble and will be durable. The seam allowances are smoothed from the inside out so that no marks remain on the front side. In complex blocks, where seams of different directions meet, the allowances of each next row are ironed in a different direction. On the front side, iron at the intersection of the seams. If the strips are too long, they should be placed vertically on the ironing board, not horizontally – they will not wrinkle or stretch. Too dense fabric is moistened and steamed. The fabric is ironed on a fractional iron in a temperature regime corresponding to the type of fabric.
  3. Secrets sewing. Inaccurately stitched fragments of a future potholder or napkin, uneven seams, even a slight mismatch in size will destroy patchwork for beginners. Therefore, the flaps must be sewn in very accurately. Beginner craftswomen will be helped by templates in the form of a frame, which are made on graph paper with a seam line printed on the fabric. Before starting an ambitious project, it is recommended to sew a sample block. It will help you check the accuracy of cutting, adjust the work of the sewing machine. It is easy to see all errors on the sample – this will save both time and effort.

It is much more difficult to correct mistakes on the finished canvas. It is much more difficult to correct mistakes on the finished canvas.

In general, the patchwork technique should be taken seriously, pondering all the color combinations, even for tacking – after all, like sloppy work, they can ruin a thing and discourage the desire to master such a fascinating handicraft.

Where to start patchwork sewing

To begin with, they collect all the scraps of fabrics, sort them by texture and color, and begin to create a scheme. You can also vice versa: come up with a pattern or find it on MK, photos and videos, and then cut the blanks from the purchased fabrics.

Of all the abundance of scraps of fabric stored at home, it is important to choose the right combination for the future product. Of all the abundance of scraps of fabric stored at home, it is important to choose the right combination for the future product.

The second step is to sketch a potholder, pillow or napkin. It is better for novice needlewomen to use ready-made schemes from magazines or MK from the Internet.

The process of joining shreds into a whole canvas:

  •  Sewing parts of tacks or blankets;
  •  Connection of blocks into one whole;
  •  Sewing on the lining

In addition to sewing, there is also a knitted patchwork, where the patches are connected with a crochet and a contrasting thread..

In addition to threads, fabrics and machines, the patchwork technique is used:

  •  Roller cutter or scissors;
  •  Pins, needles;
  •  Sewing machine;
  •  Pencil or chalk;
  •  Cardboard or soft plastic;
  •  Crochet hook.

In handicraft stores you can find patchwork kits – with patterns, MK.

Patchwork templates can be found in the kit or made by yourself Patchwork templates can be found in the kit or made by yourself Patchwork kit includes fabrics, tools, templates and block diagrams Patchwork kit includes fabrics, tools, templates and block diagrams

Patchwork: patterns, patterns

Schemes and templates can be made independently or you can take ready-made patterns from the Internet, books or magazines. Templates are cut along the contour of the part, taking into account the seam allowances. The material for the manufacture can be cardboard, thick paper, plastic. For accuracy, you can stick graph paper on cardboard, and then cut out a figure of the intended size. When making curved blanks on the outer contour of the template, it is necessary to make longitudinal cuts-notches – it is convenient to mark seams along them when joining the flaps.

Photo and video lessons on patchwork sewing offer schemes, templates and MK

Cutting rules

The most convenient templates are frames. The inner part must correspond to the dimensions of the finished fragment, the outer takes into account the seam allowances. The width of such a frame is the size of the allowances. When making a pattern, the frame must be circled twice, and cut only along the outer contour. The inner contour will show the seam line. The pattern is transferred to the fabric with chalk or soap, any pen leaves traces on the front side. Cutting is done only along the shared thread, so that subsequently the sewn parts do not stretch and warp. The flaps are cut with ordinary scissors or a special cutter. The roller knife makes the process much easier by cutting long strips that are easy to cut into smaller pieces. A cutter is indispensable when templates are bent.

Pattern selection

technique patchwork exists 3 of the kindproducts:

  • Canvas, sewn from shreds, where the parts gather seam into seam. The shape of the patches can be regular, geometric (traditional sewing) or arbitrary (crazy patchwork). Watch video tutorials.
  • Quilted products (quilting) are sewn from a whole canvas, the pattern on which is created using stitches.
  • Application – pieces of other fabrics are beautifully applied to the base, sewn on and quilted.

“Frame” – the simplest and most convenient pattern for cutting

Patchwork technique for beginners

A pattern can be created on the basis of a single repeating figure, for which paper templates are cut out for each part and a patch is attached to it. The seam allowance is folded over the edge and re-swept. This is a traditional English technique..

The block technique is more modern: pieces of fabric of a triangular or square shape are sewn into blocks, forming a geometric pattern. A simple block can be composed of a small number of large parts. This kind of work takes less time and effort. It is often used by video tutorials and MK.

The patchwork technique of stripes is also known. It differs from the previous version in that the fragments are collected in strips, then they are combined into a canvas. The block technique is convenient because the flaps are sutured immediately on a typewriter.

In a crazy patchwork, the patches are sewn on according to the type of applique: individual patches of arbitrary shape are beautifully applied to the canvas and sewn on. Potholders, bedspreads, covers come out in two layers.

Handmade items, in particular, beautiful and comfortable pillows, create a special comfort in the interior. Let’s try to sew on MK a decorative pillowcase with a volumetric Rose applique. For work, you can take any flaps, the main thing is that they are successfully combined in color. Don’t forget to prepare the fabric – wash, iron.

Master class “Pillow with applique”

Step by step instruction.

  1. It is convenient to start with the preparation of squares. Their number and size determine the size of the pillow..
  2. Then a circle must be cut out of the fabric. In the middle, put a piece of fabric and some kind of filler for volume (cotton wool, synthetic winterizer). Secure in a circle with a machine seam. The middle is ready.
  3. Fold the squares of flaps diagonally, as in the photo, sew around the middle workpiece in a circle – 3-5 pieces.
  4. For the next round, you need to prepare large squares of the corresponding color. Continue to the end of the intended flower size.
  5. Sewn petals should be trimmed in a circle.
  6. Finished roses are beautifully distributed on a pillowcase and fixed on the product with a zig-zag seam, with a wide dense stitching. The rosette looks like a volumetric applique.
  7. If desired, the bouquet can be supplemented with leaves cut from patches of a suitable color. Look at the photo of the master class step by step. The blanket in MK is made using the “crazy patchwork” technique (you can watch the video tutorials), and it consists of 30×30 cm squares. For a single blanket you need 24 blanks, for a double blanket – 36. Let’s say the pattern will consist of 4 types of fabric.

The complexity of the ornament depends on the experience and skills of patchwork. The complexity of the ornament depends on the experience and skills of patchwork.

Tools and materials:

  • 1 m of fabric of each color (width 220 cm) – 6 or 9 squares 45×45 cm;

MK step-by-step instructions:

  1. Cut into squares and stack, alternating colors.
  2. Cut this puff cake diagonally or randomly. Convenient to cut with a roller knife.
  3. Take the part from above and put it down under the stack of the same elements. In the cut pile on top there will be 1 piece of the 1st color and 1-a – the 2nd.
  4. Sew on the machine all the squares along the cut line.
  5. On the ironing board, gently smooth the seams to one side or flatten.
  6. Fold the blanks in a neat stack in the same order – on top of the squares of the 1st and 2nd tones.
  7. Using a ruler and a knife, cut the entire stack again along any line (you can cross the first seam).
  8. Place one of the upper fragments down under the stack. Sew and smooth, remembering to fold in order – now it is better to combine at the seams.
  9. The operation is repeated to the last detail. The optimal number of seams is 6-10 horizontally and vertically.
  10. After ironing the seams, you need to trim the squares to get a figure with a side of 32 cm.
  11. You can assemble the blanket in different ways: first assemble the front part, then – quilt with padding polyester and lining. It’s hard on a typewriter. Or quilting each square separately, cutting the padding polyester and lining.
  12. Gather the quilted squares together, trim and close the seams with narrow tape or strips of fabric. It is convenient to assemble according to the scheme: tapes of 4-6 squares, then sew the strips.
  13. Along the edge, the blanket must also be trimmed with a piping made of plain fabric or from pieces of rags, as in the photo MK.

Congratulations on the new thing!

Patchwork bedspread

If there are remnants of old jeans and cotton scraps in the house, you can make original pillows and a patchwork bedspread from them with your own hands, which are not inferior in originality to the newfangled tango blankets (China) at IKEA. The idea of ​​a plaid for a bed made of jeans was suggested by the American craftswoman Heather Banks.

It is convenient to master the jeans patchwork technique using the example of a pillow, which is also available for beginners..

Patchwork can be sewn from scraps of fabric or knitted Patchwork can be sewn from scraps of fabric or knitted

A detailed master class will help you master and tailor a blanket from jeans:

  1. For a pillowcase 40 x 40 cm, you need to prepare a pair of jeans: wash, cut, cut rough seams, iron.
  2. We cut out 16 circles of Ø 16 cm from 4 legs. It is convenient to use a template.
  3. On the circles, mark the seam line, as in the photo. Its length is 11 cm. The parallel seam line should be marked on the other side of the circle. It is convenient to cut out a template – a square with a side of 11 cm.Applying it to round details, it is easy to mark the line of seams.
  4. Put two circles cut from jeans, put together and sew on the machine along the marked lines. 4 circles are connected in one row.
  5. Iron out all the blanks.
  6. Prepare squares with a side of 11 cm from cotton and padding polyester.
  7. Fold the top and synthetic winterizer together and insert into the center of the jeans circle – first we put in the synthetic winterizer, then cotton.
  8. The finishing line along the segments of the jeans circle is laid as in the photo.
  9. In this way, prepare 4 strips.
  10. Connect the stripes together into one canvas.
  11. We connect the top to the bottom part, inserting a zipper on one side.
  12. Turn to the right side and, before filling with filler, ruffle the edges of the raw denim circles with a stiff brush to create a fringe.

A master class for a bedspread on a jeans bed is not needed, since it is made using a similar technique. It turns out immediately two-sided, which does not require processing the wrong side. On the edge of the bedspread on the bed, you can sew a frill, braid, lace to match the curtains – you get a stylish set for the bedroom. You can also decorate the lampshade of a night lamp in the same style. The bedspread is thick enough, it can be used as a blanket or a blanket.

For those who are interested in knitting more than sewing, a warm and cozy knitted patchwork blanket or bedspread for a bed or chair can be crocheted or knitted with your own hands. The peculiarity of such a blanket is that it is made not in the form of a solid canvas, but in separate squares (or parts of a different shape), which are then sewn into a large blanket. For beginner needlewomen who do not have a sewing machine, a knitted bedspread is ideal..

One knitted product can combine different techniques, combining knitting and crocheting patterns into one whole. First, the yarn of harmonious tones is selected. The thicker the thread, the warmer the knitted bedspread will be. It is advisable to use yarn made from natural material – acrylic after washing may lose its appearance.

You can draw a pattern of an ornament from squares yourself or find a suitable one on the Internet. Do-it-yourself crocheted blanket turns out denser and heavier, with knitting needles – lighter and more loose structure. After washing, such a knitted bedspread may shrink or stretch..

They start by counting the required number of parts. Then crochet or knit the central part of all the fragments. Then they are laid out according to the colors for strapping. When all the knitted patches are ready, you need to lay them out on the floor according to the scheme.

To connect the flaps with a crochet or knitting needles, it is better to use a thread of a contrasting color, shading the details. Having connected all the knitted parts into one canvas, it is crocheted around the perimeter. It remains to pack a gift for your husband or parents or try it on your sofa.

Master class on making a patchwork quilt

Instructions step by step:

  1. We select shreds according to our plan.
  2. Cut 288 squares 8 x 8 cm.
  3. Sew in pairs on the machine (seam allowance – 5 cm each).
  4. Smoothing the seams on one side.
  5. We connect pairs of rags into blocks of 4 pieces, as in the photo. The center seams must be cleaved with a pin to match the edges. We need to prepare 72 square blocks.
  6. Folding the blocks right side inward and aligning the seam allowances, you need to sew a rectangle of 8 blocks.
  7. Smooth the seams all right. Sew the second rectangle in the same way, ironing the seams to the left..
  8. Sew all 9 rows, smoothing the seams in different directions.
  9. Folding the stripes right side up and aligning the seams, sew 9 rows together, smoothing the seams down, as in the photo.
  10. We collect the bedspread. First you need to iron the lining and lay the synthetic winterizer on it. On this sandwich, place the top face up. Align all 3 layers. Starting from the middle, chop off all layers with pins or stitch with a basting in increments of 15-20 cm.
  11. The master class offers a bedspread tie manually – it is convenient for novice needlewomen. They start from the center, from the front side. With a needle with a large eye and a mercerized thread, they pierce all the layers and bring it out side by side, pulling the thread up. We leave the tip 5 cm, make a stitch and bring out the second tip, cutting off the tail 5 cm, as in the photo. The ends of the thread must be secured with a strong knot. Similar knots connect all the places where the quilted flaps converge.
  12. Before facing, it is necessary to sew the edge of the bedspread on the front side. Trim the edges, leaving 1.5 cm. Cut 4 strips 6 x 120 cm from the tape intended for edge sheathing, fold them in half and press them out. Fold up the edge by 5 mm and press it again. Expand the piping. Fold the blanket and the tape with the front side, pin the piping so that the raw edges match. Attach the piping, fold back the edge and smooth the seam. Sew the other side by hand. Sew the rest of the stripes in the same way..

Knitting in patchwork style: do-it-yourself transformation

Patchwork with knitting needles is distinguished from the traditional direction in that the elements of the products are not sewn from pieces of fabric, but are knitted from threads Patchwork with knitting needles is distinguished from the traditional direction in that the elements of the products are not sewn from pieces of fabric, but are knitted from threads.In the patchwork technique, along with traditional sewing, knitted patchwork is also popular. The product is created according to the same mosaic principle, only parts (motifs) of multi-colored yarn are knitted instead of patches with knitting needles or crochet. Creating new patterns and patterns, designers and experienced craftsmen create original blankets, bags, tablecloths, cardigans, dresses, sweaters, jackets, mittens, toys and other interesting extraordinary things.

Knitting technique for patchwork

Patchwork knitting is a convenient and exciting type of needlework for beginners, because knitting a motif in the form of a simple geometric figure with a thread of the same color is easier than knitting a large canvas. The variety of colors pleases the eye, besides, an unsuccessful square can always be bandaged, achieving perfection. You can see product options on video and photo..

There are 2 ways in this technique:

  1. Tie separate motives (squares, rhombuses, polygons, shells). The elements of the canvas are formed according to the selected scheme and the individual parts are sewn (with a needle or crochet).
  2. Fragments are connected already in the knitting process. For this method, it is enough to know how to read diagrams, be able to dial loops, decrease and knit facial loops.

The patchwork knitting technique implies two options for connecting fragments: ready-made elements are sewn together or the connection is made in the process of knitting The patchwork knitting technique implies two options for connecting fragments: ready-made elements are sewn together or the connection is made in the process of knitting

Knitted patchwork knitting needles: patterns

Before knitting mittens, jackets and sweaters, you need to master the technique of knitting a square. For example, you can take a width of 15 loops. It is convenient to use the pattern and scheme calculations.

To do this, you need to dial 31 = 15 + 1 + 15 loops (the central loop will be in the corner of the square) To do this, you need to dial 31 = 15 + 1 + 15 loops (the central loop will be in the corner of the square)

All squares in the patchwork technique are performed as follows: front loops on both sides. In the second row, make decreases, knitting 3 loops in the center together with the front.

The edge of the squares is obtained with knots, for this, the first loop is simply removed, and the last one is knitted with the front The edge of the squares is obtained with knots, for this, the first loop is simply removed, and the last one is knitted with the front

After decreasing the last 3 loops, the thread is cut and fastened, pulling it through the last loop.

For the next fragment, 15 loops are typed on the knitting needles in the usual way and 16 more - along the edge of the 1st square - the knitting needle is inserted beyond the edge and the loop is pulled towards itself For the next fragment, 15 loops are typed on the knitting needles in the usual way and 16 more – along the edge of the 1st square – the knitting needle is inserted beyond the edge and the loop is pulled towards itself

The second square is knitted in the same way, with decreases in every second row in the center. A number of squares are knitted to the planned width of the canvas by analogy with the second square.

After the end of the first row of squares, they move to the second row, for which 15 loops are recruited along the upper edge and 16 more in another way: throw air loops on the knitting needles.

The square is knitted as usual - front loops + subtractions from 3 central loops The square is knitted as usual – front loops + subtractions from 3 central loops

To dial the loops for the second square, dial 15 loops along the edge of the first row, another 15 loops from the corner and along the edge of the adjacent square of the second row. We knit a square. Continue knitting in the same way until the fabric reaches the height of the intended thing. Using the prepared patterns, knit rows of squares using the same method.

It is important to note that the direction of knitting is always the same - from left to right. It is important to note that the direction of knitting is always the same – from left to right.

Patchwork knitting: socks and slippers

In the patchwork technique, you can knit anything: a blanket, a hat, a cardigan, a pullover, mittens and even socks. A master class on making patchwork-style slippers will help you learn how to knit socks. First you need to prepare yarn of the same texture and thickness, but different shades and knitting needles of the corresponding number.

Master Class:

  • Starting with a control sample. It will be a square with a diagonal, 2 times shorter than the foot. On the needles, you need to dial 35 loops.

In the middle of the row, we decrease the loops: knit 16 knit stitches, 3 next knit stitches together and again 16 knit stitches In the middle of the row, we decrease the loops: knit 16 knit stitches, 3 next knit stitches together and again 16 knit stitches

  • Continue knitting, decreasing the loops in the center, until 9 stitches remain. The foot can now be measured and compared with the diagonal of the sample. If the results coincide, you can continue knitting, if not, tie the square, increasing (or decreasing) the knitting density.
  • Moving on to the second square. On a free knitting needle, cast on 13 loops from the edge on the left, and knit them with front loops.
  • You must do the same and with 13 loops on the right side.
  • There should now be 35 stitches on the needles.. We knit them with the front.
  • We continue knitting according to the scheme, which was used in step 3 until 1 loop remains.
  • Now you can cut the thread and cast on a knitting needle 34 loops with yarn of a different shade.

We carry out similar reductions until there is 1 loop on the needle again. This is the side of the slippers We carry out similar reductions until there is 1 loop on the needle again. This is the side of the slippers

  • In the same way the other side is also tied.
  • Returning the thread, which the sock was knitted. Cast on 34 hem stitches and knit the heel in decreases to 9 stitches.
  • Cast on 13 edging and knit a row of knit.
  • Similarly – with the right parties.
  • Tie the last square to the top, using the same scheme to decrease.

To tie the slippers around the perimeter, you need to dial all the edge loops on 4 knitting needles and knit in a circle, alternating faces. and out. rows to keep the shawl pattern. Decreases must be performed on the folds To tie the slippers around the perimeter, you need to dial all the edge loops on 4 knitting needles and knit in a circle, alternating faces. and out. rows to keep the shawl pattern. Decreases must be performed on the folds

  • Knit 8 rows in this way and close the loops. You can do the fitting – the slippers are ready. If you increase the number of rows for tying to the required height, you can also tie a sock. Mittens are also knitted according to this principle..

Knitted Patchwork Sweaters

For those who have mastered the general principles of knitting – socks, patchwork-style mittens from photos, videos and master classes, you can swing at a cute sweater or pullover, especially since a detailed master class is available even for beginners.

The scheme is designed for the 36th size, if you need to increase the pullover, you need to calculate the loops for your size as in normal knitting.

For work, you need gray yarn - 350 g, beige - 200 g, circular needles No. 4.5 For work, you need gray yarn – 350 g, beige – 200 g, circular needles No. 4.5

Mesh pattern

The main part of the product is connected with a mesh pattern, for which you need to dial loops, multiples of the number of 4 + 1-a + 2-nd edging.

Front side: hem + rappoport: 2 stitches together, crossed front + 2 yarns + 2 together front. The latter – one front and edge.

Purl: edging +1 out. + Rappoport: 1 out. + Yarn (out.) + Yarn (out.) + 1 out., Edging.

Braids pattern

Cast on 20 loops + 2 edging. Use the scheme, only the front side is shown in the photo, since the wrong side is knitted according to the pattern, where the yarns are knitted with the wrong side. A fragment of the pattern is repeated from the 1st to the 10th rows.

A detailed diagram of the pattern shows a complete fragment of the future product. A detailed diagram of the pattern shows a complete fragment of the future product.

For a pattern, you need to calculate the density of the pattern. For a mesh knitting density: a 10x10cm sample contains 18 stitches and 24 r. For a braid pattern, the density of the fabric: a 10x10cm sample should fit 20 stitches + 2 edging and 24 r..

It should be noted that the back and before on the pattern are knitted separately, then sewn according to the pattern. The direction of knitting is shown by arrows..

Pattern-pattern of the back and front Pattern-pattern of the back and front

Each part of the front and back is knitted 2 times.

Instructions step by step:

  1. The pullover starts by knitting part A with a gray thread. On the needles – 39 loops, the fabric is knitted with a mesh pattern to a height of 24 cm (58 p.).
  2. To knit a part In a gray thread, 27 loops are recruited, 74 rows are knitted with a net pattern (30.5 cm).
  3. For detail A, 22 loops are set with a beige thread, knitted with a “braid” pattern 58 r. (24 cm).
  4. For detail In beige thread, dial 22 loops and knit with a “braid” pattern 74 r. (30.5 cm).
  5. The pullover is sewn using a pattern.
  6. To tie the shoulder strap, 86 loops are typed along the edge of the upper edge with a beige thread, 4 p. (1.5cm) purl stitch. Then the loops must be closed.
  7. For the lower plank, you need to dial 86 loops with a gray thread, tie the canvas with a purl stitch by 1.5 cm (4 p.) And close the edge.
  8. The next step is knitting the sleeves. With a gray thread, 42 loops are typed, knitting a bar of 1.5 cm (4 p.) With a purl stitch. Then knitting is continued with a mesh pattern, using only rappoport. For bevels of the sleeves, add 9 loops from the plank on each side in every eighth row, then in each 6th row – 12 times in a loop.
  9. There should be 60 stitches on the needle. When the sleeve length reaches 33.5 cm (80 rubles from the strap), you can close the loops.

Collect a pullover, starting from the shoulder seams – 13 cm on each side. Then in the middle there are 22 cm of open loops for the neck. It remains to sew on the sleeves, connect the side seams and seams on the sleeves, – the pullover is ready, and you can proceed to fitting.

Jackets, cardigans - any patchwork jacket are knitted according to the same principle. Jackets, cardigans – any patchwork jacket are knitted according to the same principle.

It is better to master the technique of patchwork knitting – socks, mittens, cardigans and hats, a video master class will help.
