The outline of this element of Irish lace waswas published in one of the magazines "Duplet". Such an element can be used in different ways. Bind several and, connecting a grid of arches, make a scarf, top, dress ... You can apply it as a central motif for a napkin or other knitted article. If you tie it from the shiny threads and starch to stiffness - you will get a beautiful Christmas tree decoration. It is only necessary to connect the imagination - the use of this decorative element is unlimited. So, let's start knitting. To work, you will need a thread of the desired color and thickness and a suitable hook. First you need to make several turns of thread around your finger - this will be the basis for the ring of the decorative element. Now you need to tie a ring in columns without a crochet. Then make one air loop of lifting and further knit posts without a crochet - it is necessary to fit in a ring 35 columns. The next row is tying the pillars without a crochet with a "walking step", grabbing the front half-loops. From the underside of the product should remain free half loops, on which the next row will begin. That's how it should turn out. Next, a chain of 5 air loops is knit. We attach it to the ring for the free half-loops - through 2 posts without a crochet to the third. Then, tie another 4 arches out of 5 air loops. In the sixth, last arch, to fasten 3 air loops and attach the arch to the ring with a column with one overhang (6 total arches). Expand the knitting. Make 4 arches out of 5 air loops and one (extreme) arch of 3 air loops and a column with a crochet. (only 5 arches). In the next row, again increase the number of arches to 6. To do this, the first arch of 5 air loops be fixed in the last arch of the previous row. And to tie another 4 arches out of 5 air loops. In the last, the sixth arch, make 2 air loops and a column with a crochet. In the fourth row, connect the 5 arches, finish again with an arch of 2 air loops and a column with a crochet. Fifth row. Bind three air loops in the first arch, 2 arches out of 5 air loops, the last arch - from 2 air loops and a column with a crochet. The sixth row. In the first arch, connect 4 air loops, in the second - 5, in the third - 1 air loop and a column with a crochet. The seventh row. The arch consists of 5 air loops, an arch of 2 air loops and a column with a crochet. Complete the central part of the element with an arch of 10 air loops. Cut the thread. Attach a new thread to the bottom of the first arch of 5 air loops. Make an air loop for lifting. Tie arches of air loops with posts withoutcape. At the top of the arch of 10 air loops make one air loop between the posts. That is - 31 columns without a crochet, 1 air loop, 32 columns without a crochet. (on the one hand the first column without the crochet is the air lifting loop). Tie a ring for the back half-loops, returning to the beginning of knitting (fastening of the second thread). The next row is again columns without a crochet. In this series, make an increase. From the air loop at the top of the element, tie three posts without a crochet. Having reached the opposite side of the fastening of the second thread of the edge of the net, start knitting with "step by step" back. Knit the "stepping step" to the thread attachment point. (the whole "stepping step" is performed for the front half-loops). Make three air lifting loops, and knit 26 bars with a crochet. (up to the top of the head there should be 7 loops, the top of the head - 8). Then go to the posts without the crochet. Bind 6 stakes without a crochet into each loop, then - 2 sticks without a crochet in one loop. 1 column without crochet and symmetrically in the other direction - 2 stitches without a crochet from one hinge, 6 sticks without a crochet. And 28 columns with a crochet. Then go to the strapping of the ring. Two columns with a crochet from one hinge. Two columns with a crochet from each loop of the previous row, 9 columns without a crochet from each loop, 2 stakes with a crochet, 2 stitches with a crochet from one loop, and connect with the beginning of the row. Tie the series "step by step". Cut the thread. Attach the thread to the 7th column (without taking into account the column from the air loops) of the previous row. Make one air lifting loop. To knit 4 posts without a crochet. From the 6th column, tie two posts with a crochet. And we continue knitting with crochet stitches. To knead another 20 stakes with one crochet. Then knit 5 bars without a crochet (crownelement). And symmetrically - 20 columns with a crochet, 2 stitches with a crochet out of 1 loop, 5 posts without a crochet. Knit to deploy. This will be the first and only (not counting the arches) the purl series in the element. Bind 1 air hoist loop, 2 posts without a crochet, 6 stakes with 1 crochet, 2 tables with one crochet out of 1 loop. 15 columns with one crochet, 2 stitches with a crochet from one hinge. 1 column with a crochet, 5 columns without a crochet (columns without a crochet should turn out above the columns without the cusch of the previous row). In the same way tie a second half - 1 column with a crochet, 2 sticks from one hinge, 15 stitches with a crochet, 2 sticks from one hinge, 6 stitches with a crochet, 3 stitches without a crochet. Ring the tie with bars without a crochet, go back to the beginning of the row. To tie an element with a "step in step". Cut the thread. Attach the thread to 1 post without the crochet of the penultimate row of strapping (not counting the "stepping step"). Tie a loop of 10 air loops. Tie a loop in 22 columns without a crochet. Expand the knitting. Each time, the first and last column of the loop harness is tied together with the loops of the element, as if attaching a loop to the main motif. Knit to deploy. Tie the loop with the pillars without the crochet a second time. Make one column without the crochet in the loop of the element. Tie the loop with columns with a crochet. The final row of strapping is the columns without the crochet. The number of bars in the harness all four rows remains. To knit 5 posts without a crochet over the element,make a second loop of 10 air loops. Bind it the same way as the first one. So knit the loops around the entire element. It should turn out 9 loops. Finish the element with the strapping step.
