With the arrival of the first colds of all babies momput on warm clothes. Every caring mother wants to see her crumb the most beautiful. For this, young princesses are bought bright coats, overalls and boots. To show even more care, you can by tying a beautiful cap for a baby. In this article, an autumn hat, crocheted for a girl of 3 years, will be proposed. Work begins with the removal of measurements. For a child's cap, one parameter will be sufficient - the head circumference. It must be measured along the line of the forehead above the eyebrows and the most protruding place of the occiput. For girls of three years, this figure on average will be equal to 50 - 52 cm. Of course, all children are different and you need to orient yourself to the measure you took. If you want to get as close to the ideal as possible, you can make several measurements according to the diagram below. In the figure, the data for the head circumference 56 cm. You will have less of them. Hats crochet usually begin to knit from the crown. The size of the bottom of the cap is easy to calculate. It is necessary to divide the head circumference by 3.14. The resulting figure will be the diameter of the bottom. Now that you have decided on the size, you need to choose the yarn. Now many manufacturers produce threads with special markings. Usually for knitting children's hats choose a gentle yarn with 50% wool and additives. You can take the Yarn Art Merino de Luxe or Pehorka "Childish whim." The latter is thin enough, and to make the hat look warm, it is better to knit in two strands. Hook No. 2,5 or No. 3. The bottom is knitted according to the scheme. Dial 5 bp. and close in the ring. It can be replaced by an amigurumi ring of 6 loops. In this case, you will not have a small hole in the very middle of the bottom. The first river. 3 percentage points and 11 tbsp. c / n in the ring. Finish 1 с.с. The second river. It is necessary to double the amount of art. s / n, tying on 2 tbsp. s / n with a common base. Begin all ranks with 3 ppp. and finish 1 c.s. Third r. It is necessary to tie 2 tbsp. s / n with a common base in each second loop of the circle. Fourth р. We irradiate 2 tbsp. s / n with one base in each third loop of the circle. It turns out 36 loops. The next 3 - 4 rows (their number depends on the desired diameter) knit, adding in each circle 12 loops, similar to the already made additions. In this case, the bottom is flat. If you want the cap to "sit" exactly on the head of the baby, then the last 2 - 3 circles knit, alternating rows with and without additions. In any case, make a few examples during the work. When the bottom has reached the required size, without breaking off the thread we begin to knit without any increase. The first river. 3 percentage points and 6 tbsp. c / n in the same loop, * 2 loops to skip, 1 tbsp. b / n, 2 loops to skip, 7 tbsp. s / n with a common ground ("fan") *, continue from * to the end of the circle, finish 1 c.s. The second river. 3 percentage points and 6 tbsp. c / n in the same loop, * 1 tbsp. b / n in the 4-th century. s / n "fan", 7 tbsp. s / n in the art. b / n of the lower circle *, continue from *, end 1 c.s. Knit, alternating the first and second rows until the cap reaches the required depth. For a three-year-old girl it will be about 18 cm. Now you need to do two ears. Select the hinges for both ears, you can use a contrasting thread or a pin. Knit ears "fans" according to the scheme below. Bind the entire cap "step by step". Now you need to associate beautiful roses on the figure below. Dial 43 bp. The first river. 3 percentage points 2 cp. and 1 tbsp. c / n in the same stitch of the base, 2 * loops to pass, 1 st, 2 tbsp. с / н with one base and 2 в.п. between them *, continue from * to the end. The second river. In each arch of 2 cp. bind (2 items of s / n, 2 v.p. and 2 items of s / n), between wiring to 1 stp. Third r. It can be connected with another shade or color. 3 percentage points in the arch of 2 cp. link 3 tbsp. с / н, 1 с.с. from 1 century, * 6 tbsp. s / n in the next 2 cps, 1 cps in 1 cp *, from * 3 more times, then in the next 4 arches from 2 cp. bind to 8 tbsp. с / н, in 1 в.п. continue to bind for 1 c.s. in all the remaining arches of 2 cp. knit for 10 tbsp. with / n. in 1 cp. knit by 1 c.s. Now wrap the resulting ribbon in a spiral so that the smallest "fans" are in the middle. We got a big rose. For small children, you can use the same scheme, but you can tie it to 3 rows, and 2, by skipping the second or third. It remains to make a bubble, sew sashes and ties to the cap.
