Seletus/Explanation

Lubatud seletus tuleb. Asi on lihtne. Tuleb kududa 2 kolmnurkset rätikut, alustades klassikaliselt nii-öelda kaelast (musta joone keskelt). Miks just nii? Aga siis asetsevad värvid diagonaalselt. Punane joon näitab "rätiku" keskmist silmust, lillad jooned näitavad värvide jaotust.
The promised explanation is coming. It is fairly simple. You have to knit 2 triangualr shawls starting from the mid-neck, so to say, in a classical way (this would be from the middle of the black line). Why in this way exactly? Because in that case the colours will be distributed diagonally. The red line shows the central stitch of the "shawl" and the purple lines show how the colours are situated.


Niisiis, tuleb rätikud valmis kududa, aga mitte maha kududa. Rätiku laius (must joon) = seeliku laius (puusade ümbermõõt + veel mõni sentimeeter). Seejärel tuleb nad asetada teineteise suhtes nii, nagu pildidl. Nüüd tuleb kokku kududa (kolme vardaga maha kududa) rohelisega tähistatud küljed omavahel (saame risttahuka) ja sinisega tähistatud küljed jälle omavahel (tulemus on silinder).  Ja mis on silinder? See on tavaline sirge seelik, muud midagi. Kui silinder on olemas, tuleb otsustada, kus on ülemine äär, ja üles korjata silmused poole numbri võrra peenemate varrastega (pärast kahandasin veel u. 10 % silmuseid) Siis kududa värvel (kummipaela tunnel) ja panna kummipael.
Thus, you have to knit the shawls but don't bind off! The width of the shawl (the black line) = the width of the skirt (hip circumference plus some centimetres/inches for better fitting). After that you have to place them in the way they are in the picture. Now you have to knit them together (3 needle bind off): along the green lines (you'll get a parallelepiped) and then along the blue lines (the result is a cylinder).  And what is a cylinder? In fact, it is a usual straight skirt, nothing else. Once you have the cylinder, you have to decide which edge is the upper one and to pick up stitches with smaller needles (then I decreased about 10 % of the stitches). Then you have to knit the case for an elastic band and to insert the band.
Kaks olulist märkust. (1) Seelik on sirge. Kui teile ei sobi sirged seelikud, siis see konstruktsioon ei sobi. (2) Pikkus ja laius on omavahel seotud (mõelge kolmnurkse rätiku peale: mida pikemaks koote, seda laiemaks see muutub). Tõsi küll, värvel teeb pisut pikemaks ja soovi korral võib alla ka mingi ääre kududa, aga siis peaks kõvasti mõtlema, ega see üldmuljet ei riku (värvide mõttes).
Two important observations. (1) The skirt is straight. If straight skirts do not suit you, this is not your construction. (2) The width and the length are interconnected (think about triangular shawls: the longer you make a shawl, the wider it becomes). Of course you can lengthen the upper part (the waistband) and, if you wish, you can add a bottom edge but then you have to think it over because it might upset the balance (meaning the distribution of the colours).
Mõtlen edasi, kuidas saavutada samasugune värvijaotus, aga et (1) äär ei oleks sakiline ja (2) pikkus ei sõltuks laiusest. See oleks aga hoopis teistsugune konstruktsioon.
I am pondering now how to achieve the same colour distribution but (1) the bottom edge should not be in zigzag and (2) the length would be independent from the width. However, this would be an entirely different construction.
