Bulky binding always looks original in products. Puffs, they are bubbles, are no exception. Such binding can be not only monophonic or two-colored. Poufs in products with a gradient effect always look original. Another advantage is the ability to knit round.
The pattern is good for hats, scarves, cardigans, various finishes. If you wish, using this technique, you can even knit socks.
About the features of knitting
The report of the pattern is 12 rows high and 4 loops wide. Along the edges of knitting add 3 edge loops. This is due to the fact that the pattern is shifted and the bubbles are arranged in a checkerboard pattern.
From 1 to 5 row all facial rows are knitted facial, and all purl - purl.
In the 6th row, each 4 loops are knitted with the front one 4 rows lower, and the loops of the upper rows descend.
From the 7th to the 11th row, again, all the facial rows are knitted with the facial, and all the purl - with the purl.
The 12th row is knitted in the same way as the 6th, but we begin with knitting the front loop 4 rows lower.
When knitting a multi-colored canvas, it is worth considering that the 6th and 12th rows are suitable for changing colors.
