New patterns at your request: a mohair jacket, two designer jumpers and a lovely yoke

I finished another batch of patterns according to your requests. Some turned out to be completely simple, but very beautiful, while others were incredibly effective, but very complex, requiring explanation. However, nothing unusual - the standard distribution of creative forces in the world of knitting. I hasten to put everything on the shelves for you.

Mohair jacket for Valeria from VKontakte

A bright piece, knitted from mohair or similar in structure yarn. As is usually the case with such things, half of the attractiveness comes from yarn, and the other from an unpretentious pattern from loops + the skill of the author. The most important thing to know is that the pattern is completely simple, and even a novice creator can handle it. Provided that you get along well with the elastic, because straight vertical columns from the front loops are a chip and an integral part of the pattern.

The width of the rapport is 6 loops, the height is 6 rows. For those who did not pay attention, the model is knitted from top to bottom. That is why the pattern looks so unusual. If you knit from the bottom up, then the effect will not be the same.

Sweater by Louise Spagnoli at Natalia's request

Requests come from everywhere, including by email. Natalia sent a model from last year's collection of a famous brand. The thing is quite popular, loved by many, but the photograph is very small. Nevertheless, I tried to figure it out and this is what I got.

The center and side elements are honeycomb-like, I will place this pattern separately. To copy it horizontally, simply repeat knitting from sts 3 to 10 inclusive. Remember that in the end there should be 2 purl loops on the sides of the honeycomb.

Another part of the model is harnesses and braids. It seemed to me that this is how the patterns should be. I tied the samples and it seemed like it turned out similar. Of course, all elements are subject to change if necessary. For example, the width of each part can be customized to fit your data.

One more thing. To achieve a similar embossing effect, but at the same time smearing the canvas, you need a thin yarn with plush pile and a small diameter of knitting needles - no more than 2 mm.

Jumper at Olga's request

Another letter came to my mail. And it has an interesting version with weaves. The principle of knitting a model is not as complicated as drawing up a diagram. It took a very long time to draw to keep it clear. I hope I managed to convey the main thing - the meaning. Do not be alarmed, because the flowers are still ahead.

The pattern is drawn for knitting in a circle. I did this so as not to get lost. If you knit in rotary rows, remember that all the loops on the wrong side are knitted according to the pattern, and we knit the yarns with the wrong side.

Another important point is the weave in which the braid is involved. Do not forget that when it crosses with another braid, the process of crossing inside the braid also continues. I had no idea how to depict this in the diagram more clearly, so I just have facial loops there.

A home-made or factory-made aquarium flute, mounted over an external filter, brings oxygenated water into the aquarium and reduces noise by breaking the stream into shallow jets. The diffuser is a plastic tube with holes made on the side surface. The equipment has advantages and disadvantages that must be considered before purchasing or making an independent device.

The flute serves as aeration function in the aquarium.

Understanding the aquarium flute

Before purchasing additional equipment, an aquarium owner should:

  • find out the purpose and principle of operation of the flute;
  • think over the method of mounting on a glass surface;
  • take into account the advantages and study the effect of the equipment on the life of the inhabitants aquarium.


The sprayer located above the surface of the water in the tank ensures an even distribution of the flow and an increase in the oxygen concentration in the liquid. The device creates a pleasant background noise, but at night, continuous murmur can create uncomfortable conditions for a person.

Equipment is selected depending on the capacity of the tank and the species of fish or plants that live in the aquarium.

How it works

The device is a durable plastic tube with a number of holes with guiding elements on the side surface. The flute is installed above the surface or in the water column and fixed on the walls of the aquarium using suction cups. The water supply is carried out by an electric pump with a filter that traps small particles of debris. The sprinkler can consist of several pipes connected by flanges.
