In the past, a master class (you can find it onour website) we tied a cute monkey. But without clothes she is sad and cold. But she wants to be beautiful and smart in her year! I propose to tie up a skirt and a vest of bright red for our fashionista. For the costume we will need: - bright red thread. Threads can be chosen at will - cotton, acrylic, wool, microfiber ... It is desirable only that they are not too thick; - the hook; - a bit of satin ribbon of suitable or contrasting color, 6 mm wide. To begin with, we'll tie our monkey skirt. We will dial a chain of buttons, slightly larger than the waist of our monkey. Now remove the chain from the monkey and merge it into a ringlet. Knit we will be classic and very beautifula pattern of pineapple. The first row of skirts we will tie from the arches, which will have five air loops. And at the base of each arch, we make 2 looped chains. So on the whole ring. Now we connect the second row. In the first arche we will connect 3 lifting loops (the first column of the row) and three more columns. Split the columns with an air loop. That is, we get: three lifting loops, one column with a crochet, an air loop and a couple of posts with crochets. Then we connect three air loops. We will skip one archet, and in the third we will connect 9 posts with one cape. This will be the basis for our "pineapple". Next, we will connect three more air loops and repeat this until the end of the circle. Second row. The first element will remain unchanged. A pair of columns (in the first element of the series there are three air loops and a column), an air loop and another pair of columns. Three air loops. We will connect 9 columns with a single crochet, but we will connect 1 air loop between the columns. Third row. We start the series the same way as the previous two. Now in the columns with the second-row crochet we will connect the simple columns, without the crochet. Between the columns we make three loops. Get 8 arches. This is actually the "pineapple" itself. Fourth row of skirt. We begin all the same. Next, we knit three loops and a column without a crochet in the first arches of three air loops. Thus, we have a 1 decrease in the number of arches in the element. Fifth row. Changes, or rather increases, the first element of the series. Now, instead of four separated in pairs, we bind six. The bars are also divided in pairs by an air loop. The second element of the pattern is knitted similarly, the number of arches will decrease by one more, and becomes equal to 6. The sixth row. The first element is done even more. Now, for the air loop between the first pair of columns, we'll fasten four bars with one crochet, separated by a pair of loops. From the second air loop, between 4 and 5 bars, also we will fasten 4 bars. We get 2 elements in 4 columns. The second element is knitted the same way, arches become 5, "pineapple" decreases with each row. The seventh row. Between the groups of 4 columns we will make three air loops. Next we knit "pineapple", which left only 4 arches. The eighth row. We connect four bars with an air loop in the middle. Then we connect a chain of 3 loops. For a chain of three air loops we will connect 9 bars, which will have one cape. And through three air loops we will tie four more stakes with a loop in the middle. In the "pineapple" in this row there are only three arches. Ninth row. We start the same way as the previous one - three loops, a column, an eyelet, two bars, three air loops. Next, we knit posts with a crochet. And between the posts, as in the second row, we will tie one air loop. So we tie all 9 posts, we knit three loops and four columns with a crochet, separated by an air loop. In the very "pineapple" there are only two arches. Tenth row. We knit the same way as the ninth, but between the columns with the crochet we make 2 air loops. And only one arch remained in the pineapple. Eleventh row. It is also similar to the ninth and tenth. But between the columns we will make three loops. And the pineapple will be completely closed. The twelfth, thirteenth and fourteenth rows are arches of five air loops. If you suddenly find the skirt is not long enough, you can tie more rows. Put the ribbon in the first row and tie the bow. Now let's get down to the waistcoat. The basis for it will be another traditional pattern crocheted - the grandmother's square. So, let's tie a ring of 5 loops. In the ring we will fasten 12 posts. Between each three columns we will make three air loops. In the second row of the square we knit 6 bars on each side of the square. We turn from side to side with three loops. In the third row there are nine bars on each side. Three rows for our zhileletochki quite enough. Now make the sleeves. To do this, we connect 10 loops and attach the chain to the opposite corner of the square. On the lower side we will connect 7 arches from five air loops. On the third side again we will make an armhole for the sleeve. And finish the series with 8 arches. We continue the strapping of the vests with arches around the perimeter. In the sleeve we will connect five arches. And in the second, too. We will connect 5 rows of arches from five loops. In the sixth row we will make arches out of 6 loops, and in the seventh - from seven. The waistcoat is ready. Let's try it on a monkey. And tie a bow. We'll put on a skirt and push monkeys around the waist. We will tie a beautiful bow from behind. Our monkey is ready to be fashionable in his new costume!
