  • The general principle of binding sites is as follows: axial filament is taken in one hand and pulled tight with the other hand the working thread is a knot. We must take an even number of thread floss (at least 4). They're going into a bun and fastened ordinary general assembly. The distance from the node to the edge should be at 5-10 cm, then to weave the braid, which will be a complication for the finished bracelet. Molyneux attached to the pin pad or by using adhesive tape to the table.
  • Right hinge assembly. In his hand is taken on the far left and the thread is pulled, it will be the centerline. Right hand thread work, in this case, following the axis, wrapped around her left. Then, through the loop, it is necessary to pull the tip of the thread and move the unit up. In the same way to make a second knot and move it close to the previous one. Now working and axial filament are reversed and, therefore, changed the operating functions. If by chance the knot will be too compressed, it can stretch, using a needle.
  • The left hinge assembly. Running as a mirror image of the right node, ie floss thread taken from the right side of the unit and on the axial filament is knitted from right to left.
  • Right turn. On the axial filament is first knot done right, and then left.
  • Left turn. First, the working thread is left loop, right then.

So often braided floss ends at the completion of the product. But there are schemes weaving elements 4 and 5, then get more interesting and beautiful bracelets.

  • To weave the braid of 4 strings (as well as any even number) each time it is necessary to take 2 central thread and move left to extreme right number and the right - to the left and so on until the end.
  • For pigtails of 5 thread and the other there is an odd number of the scheme, which is called the cord aiguillette. Tat in this case, moving the first thread in the center of the left and then right. And so to repeat a number of times. There are other schemes braiding, more complex.

Manufacturing oblique weaving baubles

It is necessary to take, for example, 6 thread floss desired length. Let them be in 3 colors, 2 of each color. After the floss will be knotted and secured with a pin, you can proceed directly to the oblique weaving. For this thread are sorted by color, then the first on the left is made of the node 2 on the second. In the same way the first tally nodes thread on the third, fourth and so on. D. You must try each successive bundle placed slightly below the previous one. After the end of the first row, again takes the first line on the left and drags the second row. And so left lagging row by row. Upon reaching the desired length bracelet with braided pigtails at both ends about 2 cm, which end knots.

In order to secure Fenichka on the hand, it is possible to make one end of the loop, and the other to bind a bead acting as buttons. But this attachment is not very reliable and can casually unbuttoned Fenichka. It is best to buy in the store crafts lock the right color and design.

The direct plaiting

Direct weaving can create more complex patterns. The leading here will be the leftmost strand, which must be longer than the others do. Alternately criss-crossing each thread, it is necessary to complete the first row, then the same thread is woven second row from right to left, then the third - from left to right. So it is necessary to weave a bracelet to the desired length. If you want to start a weaving pattern, the leading strand braided axis.

Threads are distributed by color scheme, respectively, tied a big knot and secured with a pin. If the schema contains a picture, the background thread will not let cropped and goes from the coil.
  • Usually all circuits are designated nodes and arrow shows which way to direct the yarn during the knitting knots. The arrow on the diagonal, pointing down to the left means that the site is necessary to weave a thread to throw the right to the left and stretch to the end of the resulting loop, then return it to its original position and make another similar unit.
  • Down arrow from left to right indicates the node that is woven as the previous one, but with the left thread.
  • The broken arrow pointing left indicates that it is necessary to tie the knot in two opposing directions: the first left-hand thread, the other right.
  • Curved Right Arrow 2 indicates the opposite site from which the first right and second left.
  • When weaving baubles of floss with a pattern, it is necessary to fix the thread loop and knit her nodules background color.

For those who have repeatedly wove baubles, to create a bracelet of satin ribbons will take no more than half an hour.

Despite the simplicity, the result is sure to please you weave. To weave this decoration needed a couple of satin ribbons about a meter long, at least. If length is not enough, it is better not to engage in weaving, as the product will look ugly. Feeds can be of various colors, as long as they are well combined with each other. For example, you can take the red and white ribbon, yellow and blue, orange and yellow.

Well, if you have a white satin ribbon as white color blends easily with others. After that you can start weaving baubles. For this purpose both ends of the tapes are folded about 10-15 cm, and then the tape overlap. Then, the upper loop folded as if want to tie the knot.

Beaded Baubles

We must now figure out how to weave Baubles Bead. They are obtained extraordinarily beautiful. For example, you can make an interesting beaded bracelet and pin, which precisely no one would. To do this, take the pins, beads of various colors and shapes, elastic lace and glue. The beads should be put on a pin so that there is little room at the top of the needle. This is to ensure that the pin could easily be closed.

The beads should be strung up, as long as you understand that it has recruited the most number of pins that shrink onto your wrist or wrist the person for whom you are creating jewelry.

It needs to weave the two strands, so that before weaving the thread ends necessarily need waxed, that is to impregnate the wax. At the beginning of work on a thread or fishing line strung three beads, they need to shift to the middle. Thereafter, each of the strands must be passed through the extreme beads.

As a result, the right-hand thread is passed through the right-hand bead, and the left, respectively, through the left. After that, you should have a figure similar to the inverted triangle. Then the thread on each side need to add two beads, and then again through the filament skip beads in the same way to the extreme right has passed through the bead on the left, and the left - right. On each side of the need to add any of the three beads, can be a different color, and the thread is pushed back by the extreme beads. Now we need to make a draw.

For the next stage are added to both strands of two beads. At this time, a bunch of passes through the last bead on opposite sides. After that, the thread should go to meet each other through the bead. This is the last stage of the first weave Baubles. Then the whole sequence is repeated as long as the decoration is ready.

Thereafter, the thread is passed through the rightmost one. Recruited six beads. The thread is passed through the eighth bead (from the beginning of the set), and it again six new strung beads. The yarn was passed through a bead of the last link, resulting in a triangle. Next Fenichka woven in the same manner, resulting in the formation of new triangles. Finished jewelry sewn into the ring, but you can use another method, extending through holes satin ribbon and applying it as a drawstring.

You can try to make chess Fenichka. It's pretty simple decoration, even for beginners, to braid it quite easily. First, you need to thread beads strung four, then three, then two. After that, the thread should be passed through the fifth bead, then through the third and first. As a result, the thread turns and trudges on decoration. The result is a square, in the form of a mosaic. Once you finish the first square weave, you can proceed to the second, exiting the entry.
