On the eve of the New Year I want to make myhands with something interesting and unusual, and, of course, that it was associated with the symbol of the coming year. In the eastern calendar, 2016 is symbolized by a monkey. Proceeding from this, I want to offer a detailed master-class on knitting a monkey crochet. Toys made in the "crochet" technique are beautiful and pleasant enough to touch. Such a symbol of the New Year will please not only children, but adults. The size of such a toy is about 27 cm. As a filler, I try to use a thin foam, which I pre-cut into small pieces. Due to the foam rubber, the toy is not only soft, but also elastic, and the parts are perfectly in shape. The list of necessary materials for knitting of a monkey:
Knitting toys for everyone happens in its own way. Some knit a toy entirely without detachment, while others knit details first, and then they are joined together. I like the second option the most. To begin with, it is necessary to relate the main details: the head and trunk, in order to then orient the size of the other parts. We knit the head Begin to knit a monkey from the head. To knit the head you will need a beige thread for knitting. It is necessary to make a chain of 5 air loops and connect the outer loops to form a closed circle. Then this series should be tied up, it will be our second row. The part needs to be expanded, so in the 3 rd row, you need to tie off an additional loop from each 2nd loop of the row. The 4th row is knitted in a circle without the addition of loops. In the 5th row, you need to tie off an additional loop from each 3rd stitch of the row. To circle in a circle without the addition of loops rows No. 6-13. From the 14th row, we start to loosen the eyelets. Therefore, in each 4th loop of the row we reduce the loops. This happens as follows: put the next loop on the hook - do not tie and then put on another loop, and then pull the thread through all 3 loops. The 15th row is tied in a circle without loosing the loops. In the 16th row, it is necessary to reduce the loops in each 4th loop of the row. The head is filled with finely chopped foam or sintepon and continue knitting. The 17th row is simply tied in a circle without loosing loops. And in the 18th and 19th series, it is necessary to make a decrease in each eyelet, so that the part is tightened. Fasten the thread well and trim. Use the hook to hide the rest of the thread. The head is connected and it's time to start knitting the torso. Knit trunk For knitting the torso alsoOnly need a beige thread. The trunk will start from the top by expanding to the bottom. So, with the hook we type a chain of 5 loops and connect it as for the head. Then the next row is simply tied round. And in the 3rd row, you need to add loops in each 4th loop of this row. The 4th row is simply tied round. In the 5th row - you need to make an addition in each 3rd loop of the row. 6th row - just tie in a circle. And in the 7th row, you need to tie off an additional loop from each 3rd row of the row, and the next rows of 8-12 simply to tie without adding. The trunk needs to be filled with foam rubber, as the loops will begin to be cut and the hole will be tightened. In the 13th row, you need to reduce one loopevery 3 loops of the row, and in the 14th row to do the same, but every 2 loops of the row. In the 15th and 16th rows, it is necessary to cut all the loops so that in the end there is only one. Cut the thread and hide it. Torso and head for monkeys are ready. Let's go on to knitting the following details. We knit hands For knitting knobs you need a white andbeige yarn. Let's start knitting with a white thread. The extreme loops of a chain of 4 air loops to unite and tie. Then in the third row add one loop in each 4-th row. Rows No. 4-7 should be knit with white yarn without the addition of loops. And rows number 8-13 to be tied with beige yarn withoutadditives loops. Fill the workpiece with foam rubber and continue knitting. In the 14th row, one loop should be cut every 3 rows of the row. Then make a cut in each eyelet in the 15th and 16th rows. By the same analogy, you need to connect the second handle to the monkey. Knit legs Feet is similar in knitting with handles, butthey are thicker and more used by white yarn. We start knitting with a white thread. A chain of 5 air loops should be assembled in a ring and tied. Then in each 3rd loop of the row add one additional loop, and tie the 4-8th rows along the ring without adding. Fill the leg with foam rubber and continue knitting. We use beige thread for work and bind itit is the 9-11th series. Next, you need to make a decrease in each 3rd loop of the 13th row and fill the leg with foam rubber. Make a decrease in each loop of the 14th and 15th series. Fix the thread, cut and remove the crochet inside the workpiece. By the same analogy, it is necessary to connect the second leg to the monkey. We knit a tail To knit a tail it will be necessarybeige and white thread. For this part of the body, we first take a white thread and make a chain of 4 air loops. The 2nd row is simply tied, and in the 3rd row one should add one eyelet in each 4th stitch of the row. From the 4th to the 7th rows - we knit without the addition of loops. Fill the tail with foam rubber. From the 8th to the 22nd row, a beige thread is introduced into the work and everything is tied round without adding hinges. In the 23rd row, you need to make a loss in each 3rd loop of the row, and fill the tail with foam rubber. Tie a circle around the next row, and in the 25th row make a reduction in each loop. Finish the part and fix the thread. We knit ears Ushki knit mainly from whitethread, and tied with a beige thread. The eye is sewn as follows: a chain is sewn with a white thread of 16 air loops. Then you need to tie this chain on one side. Fold the workpiece in half. We mess with the hook through these two halves, and we knit so in one direction, and then in the opposite direction. We take a beige thread and tie a white workpiece, but only to the head. We cut the thread and hide it inside the eyelet. By the same analogy, you need to connect the second ear. We knit the nose This requires a white thread. Of the 5 air loops you need to create a chain and tie it around the oval. In the third row, tie along the oval with the addition in each 4th loop. Then in the next row also tie around the oval, but add one loop in the outer loops (oval). The next row to tie an oval. And in the 6th row add one loop every 3 loops of the row. The 7th row is simply tied around the oval. Before you stick a nose, it needs to be filled with foam rubber. We knit a chubby Chubchik knits on two socksknitting needles from a brown thread. We type 6 loops and bind them. Then on the index finger we wind the thread in 2 turns and we sew the obtained "double loop", then rewind and tie it and so on to the end of the row. The 4th row is simply tied with facial loops. The 5th row is knitted with "double loops", and the 6th row is tied with the front loops. In the 7th row, make the "double loops" and tie it, and the 8th row - with the front loops. The 9th row is knitted with "double loops", and the 10th row is tied with the front loops. Close the loops, and trim the thread. Chubchik is ready, it remains only to glue and fluff. And also make the tip of the spout out of the black yarn on the white workpiece, so that it is black and the mouth is made of red thread. Build Toys When all parts of the toy are ready,you can start assembling. Heat the glue gun. First we glue the head with the trunk, then we glue the handles and legs, the tail. To the head you need to glue the ears. Attach a curly toothed nose to the head. From black beads make eyes for a monkey. On the neck of a monkey, tie a bow from a satin ribbon to peas. A bow must also be glued on, so that it stays in one place and does not untie, if someone pulls it. Do not forget to lighten the ends of the tape with a match so that it does not dissolve. Monkey is fully ready for the New Year 2016! Such a monkey can be tied up both for his family and as a gift for relatives and friends.
