Teatavasti patentkude venib. Nagu selgus, venib pikkusesse üsna palju. Loogiline, et poolpatent ei veni nii palju, nagu täispatent. Aga oleneb muidugi ka lõngast. Seda arutasime täna Suviga. Näiteks täisvillase karedama lõnga puhul on silmused üksteisest rohkem kinni. Selle sviitriga ei juhtunud mitte midagi. Siin on aga sile sokilõng (Dropsi Fabel).
As it is known, patent stitch fabric tends to stretch. As it has become clear, it stretches quite a lot in the length. It is logical that half-patent does not stretch as much as full patent does. But it all depends on the yarn. Today we discussed it with Suvi. For instance, if you have a somewhat coarse wool, then stitches stick more together. Nothing happened to this sweater. But here I have a smooth sock yarn (Fabel by Drops).
After moistening and drying the sweater stretched in the length by 15-20 cm. The width is all right. In the bottom picture you see the marker that shows where the sweater should end. At first I thought that a longer sweater is not bad but after some thinking I decided I don't quite like it. I intend to rip a little bit.
It would be useful to try out mohair and to see how it behaves. I think in this respect mohair would be more like wool.
