Woolen knitting is a process of interlocking yarn loops using long needles. This method is a time-consuming one, demanding patience, but the output always pays off for it.
Here is a brief explanation of the steps in woolen socks knitting:
The raw materials required here are; woolen yarn and three straight knitting needles. The process starts with a slipknot and then interlocking of wool loops from its start end. These interlocking are slowly developed until it forms the expected pattern. Multi colours of woolen threads are used to innovate with the designs and patterns. Once the skill is mastered, the artist would take only a few hours to complete a pair of socks. At such conditions, their hands would perform the knitting so fast that an observer can hardly identify the prime loop through which the whole pattern is connected. Though the artisan starts with two straight needles, later, when the work grows, the third needle is added for faster completion. Once the sides are finished, the artisan flips the woolen knitting and connects the base layer by knitting it. After knitting the base, the artisan ends it with a knot. The interlinking of multi-coloured yarns is what makes these baby socks more likable. For baby socks, the woolen threads used are extra soft and usually combine contrast colours.
