On the benefits to humans of animals from the familyfelines have been known since ancient times. The cat or cat can extinguish the negative energy, bring peace and tranquility to the home. Whichever cat you choose, live or artificial from porcelain or fabric, it always delivers a few pleasant minutes. Try to tie a nice toy or cat-pillow with a hook, and you will get a sea of positive, because the process of knitting instantly calms the nervous system. In this article we offer to your attention several models of cats that are made with the help of a hook. Each of them can be used not only as a soft toy, but also as an original gift. First let's try to connect the famous cartoon cat Matroskina. It can then be placed in the children's room. To link it you will need:
- white yarn (1 skein);
- gray yarn (1 coil);
- pastel-pink yarn (small hanks);
- a pair of buttons;
- thread with a needle;
- crochet hook;
- a little synthepon.
We knit a seal on the scheme. Work begins with the head. We will need to produce 2 equivalent halves of it. The simplicity of the scheme will surprise you: from the serpent you need to tie a pair of flattened mugs, whose diameter will be 100 mm. After you have finished weaving the same circles, sew them together, making a small hole. The sintepon is stuffed through it and then it is sewn. Let's go to knitting the torso. We'll knit from the bottom of the trunk. Having typed six loops, add from them on a circle of a loop and untie a sleeve of 100 mm in diameter. After every two rows, reduce one eyelet in such a way that where the cat has a neck, the sleeve was 60 mm in diameter, and the trunk itself is 140-150 mm. Now it can be filled with filler and sewed to a previously connected head. The knitting of the paws has come. The front and back legs are knitted in the same pattern. Using a hook, a tube with a diameter of 30 mm and a length of 80-100 mm is loosened around the circumference, and at the end slightly widens. In the paws, also fill the sintepon, and then they are sewn to the trunk. At the same time, the hind legs move slightly towards the head, so that the cat can sit comfortably. Now you can start to knit a tail. It will be a long sleeve 20 mm in diameter. We fill it with the help of the synthepon as the work progresses. Upon completion, it is also sewn to the trunk. Without laying aside the hook, tie it and sew it to the muzzle, inserting the sintepon. The ears also knit not empty, in the form of a triangle. To give the stiffness, you can use a thread folded in half. In the end, you should attach the eye-buttons, ears and embroidered mustaches. This is our Matroskin ready! Another version of the cat Matroskina in the form of a cushion. Such a lovely cat will look great on the couch or sofa. Knitting such a "kitten" pillow takes place in a circle, from the tail with a single sleeve. No one forces you to use only two colors when knitting. You can imagine that the paws, tail and muzzle cat - it's directly Matroskin, and part of the trunk in the strip - his "vest". In other words, you can knit your head, ears and paws with any shades. Creation of a cat-game. This funny kitten is not only a playful character, but also an unusual shape. We will knit his head with a diamond. At the hind legs, the thickening starts from the hip, and we sew it to the body of the cat from the side, and not from the butt. In these legs should be inserted wire, which will pass an arc perpendicular to the body of the cat. A piece of wire for the tail is attached to the arc of this arc. Each tip of the wire bends into the loop, so that it does not tear the knitted part. After such simple manipulations, our cat-game will be able to hold the tail with a pipe and stand confidently on its hind legs. Making an anti-stress cat. This toy has a double argument opposing negativity. First - it is performed in the form of a seal, the second - it is possible, on occasion it is easy to get into the irritant by running into it, as this is a ball. Having connected a lot of such cats with the help of a hook, it is possible to organize a real kotovasiya. Knitting patterns here also can not be called complex. First you need to get some ball (rubber or plastic), then it should be completely tied. After that, a couple of triangle-ear flaps are sewn, a pair of eye-beads are sewn, we embroider our mouth. And of course we sew a long tail to make the craft really look like a cat. We knit a cat-rattle. By analogy with the previous craft, you can tie a cat-rattle. The only difference - instead of the ball inside you need to enclose a capsule from under the chocolate egg. Create the appropriate sound effect is also easy - just enclose a few beads or peas. Knit begin with the paws and tail, which are then sewn to the body of the cat. The muzzle is decorated with eyes, ears and a nose. Due to the ease of knitting, for one evening you can make a whole family of these seals. This concludes our master class on crochet crocheting.
