Northern men’s belt: Previously belt worn equally by both women and men. The belt was a mandatory piece of clothing. In ethnographic materials of the early XX century. : “It is rare to find among the peasants … to someone walked without a belt.” “Without a belt to go sin,” – said the people. Belt was a sacred object, as everyone was given at baptism. No wonder they say: “belted person is afraid of the devil.” Drinking this garment was special. The expression “let himself go” has its origin from the past. A self-respecting man could not afford to go even in the house without a belt, sit down, let alone to pray. Women did not remove it even at night. He was accompanied by a person from birth to death.
In the North, the production zones attached great importance. Probably, hence such a variety of manufacturing techniques zones: “Trainspotting”, “to yoke”, “on berdyshke”, “on mugs”, “on churochke” and crochet, woven on a loom and made by nodular principle.
For a whole month I was weaving belt for d / s (for the costumes)
He wove several northern men’s belts. On this belt on the internet a bit of material.
It shows a spiral braiding in one direction only.
In the photo a male girdle or belt “on the needle”, or belt “in the bottle”.
For weaving male belt 1,5 meters length must be cut into 10 12 woolen threads on 6 meters. Plus the thread base (see photo 1) arbitrary length (about 2 meters for ease of weaving, as the consumption of its threads may be extended). Each wind woolen yarn in skein (2), leaving tip 20 cm and lock loop skein. All the ends of yarn and tie the thread on the basis of the end node in the node insert needle.
Matches drop in the bottle. Lace and pull away at the top of the neck. The threads should be omitted from the bottle. Spread the threads on the bottle.
Base thread (2) taken into the right hand thread working hanks (1) to the left.
This photo just for show, to show how to throw a working thread – on top of the warp yarns. The arrow shows the loop, which will push through a working yarn hanks.
Protyahyvaem strand into a loop.
Tighten the knot.
Next thread workers will take all the time to the right, the bottle will twist clockwise. Uzelochki be fastened on a thread basis.
To knit a spiral in the other direction:
Conversely, in the left hand take a thread basis, to the right – the working yarn hanks (the photo shows that the working thread (1) gets out of the warp threads (2))
This photo is also to show – working thread onto the top warp threads,
Further in the loop formed by the yellow and white yarn …
On the basis of the thread loop is formed, and which is delayed. Thread foundations hold firmly, not to get out of the loop warp.
Lace tighten securely.
Then take a left thread. Next – red bottle … will twist counterclockwise. And so gradually the bottom uzelochki on a thread basis.
This photo belts, crocheted and woven by me.
