Ook ik heb mee gedaan aan de crochet along van wolplein om de Droomdeken te maken. Elke week kwam er weer een deel van het patroon online en in 12 weken was de deken klaar. Ik haakte er twee,…
One of the most timeless and practical knitting projects in the world is the modest pair of socks. Ideal as a gift for all men in your house or as a cozy treat in the winter months. There are many reasons why you should knit your own things instead of buying cheap pairs of these items at your local department store.
However, choosing the right kind of sock yarn for your project can be difficult, and it's no wonder why. With so many different weights and materials on the market today, it can be difficult to know which ones are right for your specific needs.
The first thing to do is to decide who wears the socks that you make and why. You may choose to make a pair for a family member who likes to walk in thick socks, or alternatively for a child who wants to wear a ruffled and decorative pair at school. It is very important to decide which function the socks fulfill.
Then you can choose the thickness of the sock yarn you want to use for your creation. The lighter yarns such as fingerweight yarns are ideal for making thinner, more decorative socks. These shoes are perfect for wearing in shoes and are cuddly and comfortable without being too bulky.
On the other hand, yarns that are thicker than sports and DK weight are better for boot socks and make a more & # 39; knitted & # 39; feel when worn. These are best for wearing in hiking boots as mentioned above, which offer more space in the shoe for this type of thick knit.
Once you've decided on the weight of the material you use to make your shoes, you'll need to choose angora, cotton, synthetics, or other material next. All this provides a pleasant or unpleasant experience for the wearer.
For those who live in a colder environment and are looking for the perfect cuddly socks, choose an angora wool sock yarn, as this can warm your feet considerably if other materials fail. In warmer climates, cotton and cotton blends provide excellent breathability that can keep feet cool.
If you choose cotton or angora sock yarn, the elasticity is lower than other materials such as nylon or wool. In this case, you should invest your money in a yarn that consists of a more elastic and a less elastic material. Be forewarned that synthetic materials can moisturize the feet.
However, plastics are among the most durable materials when it comes to sock yarns. So do not write it down completely. If you combine any of these materials, such as nylon or a cyclic, with wool or cotton, you will get a mix of comfort and breathability with durability and elasticity to varying degrees, depending on which yarn you choose.
Once you've ironed out all these details, you can finally choose the perfect color for your creation and then go shopping! Your choice in this area depends on the patterns you follow and your taste or the wearer of the socks.
You may prefer sober, autumnal colors for boot socks or bright or white colors for school socks for kids. For more original creations, experiment with multicolored yarns for an unusual look. Regardless of your choices, the following tips will help you make the right choice for you and your specific needs.
