Effectively and stylishly look knitted things with cloquet effect. In most cases, mating is extremely simple. Master it under the force even beginner masters. By understanding the principle of knitting, you can easily create your own designs.

And this is all cloquet!

In most cases, the effect of volume is achieved through tucks. Often knitters themselves determine which of the parties considered facial. The pattern may resemble honeycombs or bows on the one hand, and on the other it goes over bulk heaps. All rows here are knitted with satin stitch: a row of facial loops alternate with a row of purses. At the same time, tucks are made periodically. To do this, an additional knitting needle is attached to a part of the loops of the knitted fabric from a certain lower row, and then knitted together with the front loops of the current row, that is, raised.

Depending on the pattern report and the number of rows, the canvas will look different.

The report of the pattern here is 14 loops and 20 rows. All the odd rows are connected by the front, and even rows are wrong. Start knitting - 8 rows of the front surface. In the 9th row we make tucks, lifting 2 loops of the first row and knitting them together with the loops of the current row. Next, we knit 12 purl loops and tuck it again. 10 row - all facial loops. After knitting stitch 8 more rows. In the 19th row from the beginning of knitting, we do the tucks again, but with an offset of 6 loops to the side.

And this is an openwork pattern with tucks:

When tucks are absent

Tucks are not the only way to get cloquet effect. Here the volume is achieved through broaches, in the performance of such a pattern is more complex.


This cloquet sweater can be knitted on both circular and regular knitting needles. Pattern patterns are given under both versions of knitting. Scheme 1 for knitting in two directions, Scheme 2 for circular. The diagrams show the front rows (for circular knitting odd), the rest are knitted according to the pattern.
