These cute cubs are made in the technique of Japanese knitted toys - amigurumi. When knitting such toys, you should observea few simple rules. First, the very first toy should not be very complicated. Knitting requires patience and accuracy. And even on the example of creating this kind of soviets, one can understand and feel the process of working on amigurumi. Secondly, toys are usually knitted with columns without a crochet, in a spiral, on either side of the loop, without the use of connecting posts at the end of the row. To indicate the beginning of the series, be sure to use a string of contrasting color or a special marker. Third, knitting should be tight. Therefore, when working, it is desirable to use a hook for 1 number less than the recommended one for yarn. Fourthly, when knitting, it is necessary to use the so-called imperceptible decrease. To do this, you just need to pick up 2 loops just behind the front walls, stretch the working thread through them and then knit the two loops on the hook together. And now we proceed directly to the creation of a soviet in the amigurumi technique. For work you need:
- yarn of blue and pink flowers (for example, Perkhorka "Children's novelty" - 100% acrylic)
- a little white, purple and fine yellow yarn,
- hook No. 3, No. 1.5,
- sintepon for packing,
- two beads for the eyes,
- sewing needle and thread.
The body of a lapwing knits together with the head from top to bottom. We begin to work with pink yarn. We dial 13 air loops and from the second loop we sew 12 posts without a crochet. Then we pass to the opposite side and again we sew 12 loops. Thus, a circle was formed, consisting of 24 columns. From 2 to 5 rows (4 rows) we sew 24 loops each. At the end of the 5th row we change the thread to blue. 6 and 7 rows also make up 24 columns without a crochet. 8 the row is tied as follows: 3 columns, an increase (we sew in 4 posts 2 loops). We repeat this 6 times. As a result, this series will be 30 loops. In the 9th row, 30 stitches simply tie, at the end we change the thread to pink. From the 10th row we will alternate the colors of the yarn in one row. We can not cut the thread! In this row we sew 4 stakes and increase, repeating 6 times. It turns out already 36 loops in a circle. 11, 12, 13, rows (3 rows) are knit without increments, amounting to 36 columns in each. Do not forget to alternate the colors of yarn! Starting with the 14th row, we start making the loops: 4 columns, inconspicuous decrease - repeat 6 times. We get 30 loops. 15 row - 3 columns, decrease - repeat also 6 times. 24 loops. From the 16th row we continue knitting only with pink yarn. The blue thread should be fixed, cut and hidden inside. We impose 2 bars, a decrease. Repeat 6 times - we have 18 loops. While the hole is wide enough,stuff the body with a sintepon. In the 17th row we bind the losses through one loop - we get 12 bells. 18 the row consists only of the deductions. We continue to do them until we completely close the hole. The thread is fixed and cut. The body of a little cow is ready. Now we are knitting blue yarn wings. Do not fill them. We make a sliding loop and in it we sew 5 columns without a crochet. In the second row, we make 5 increases - we get 10 loops. 3 - 6 rows (4 rows) are knit unchanged - 10 posts each. In the 7 (last) row we sew 3 loops and do a decrease, repeating 2 times. We get 8 loops. The thread is fixed and cut, leaving about 20 cm. Two halves of the wing are stitched together. Knitting the eyes begin white yarn also withsliding loop. We impose inside 6 columns without a crochet and tighten. We make a connecting loop and change the thread to purple. We knit 6 increments, obtaining 12 loops. The thread is fixed and cut, leaving a sufficient length. In the center, carefully sew the beads. You can tie a small tail to a lamb. At the beginning of the knitting, leave the sewing thread. We dial a chain of 4 air loops and in each turn row we make a decrease, until there will be 1 loop. The main details are connected. Under the pink part of the trunk we make a small dent. Sew our eyes and wings. Now it remains to bind the paws and the beak - this is the mostpainstaking work. For it we use fine cotton yarn and hook No. 1.5. We begin knitting the paw with a set of 6 air loops. From 2 loops we sew 5 connecting bars, returning to the beginning of the chain - this is 1 finger. Again, type 5 air loops and return 4 loops to the beginning - this is 2 fingers. 3 finger fits together, like the first. We connect the pins together with the connecting post and we finish the paw 2 with air loops. The thread is fixed and cut, do not forget to leave a few cm for sewing. We do the beak by tying 6 bars into a sliding loop. Now this small circle should be folded in half and stitched. We sew the beak between the eyes. And the paws are at the bottom of the trunk so that the fingers protrude outward. And the final stage is the creation of ears. For each ear we cut 4 threads of used yarn. And fix them from two sides, in the corners of the head. Crop to an acceptable length. And our Amigurumi-sovienok is ready! The growth of cubs is about 6 cm (without taking into account the ears) and they can wave their wings. And they look incredibly kind and sweet! Of these, it is very easy to make a Christmas tree, if you attach a ribbon at the top of the head or tie a simple chain of 25 air loops. Create your team of bright and positive amigurumi-owl!
