Plait from beads
All experienced beadworkers know that,that the main thing in beads is its quality, or rather the calibration. The more accurate the beads are in the size, the more beautiful and more accurate the product will be in the end. Such beads look great in products woven with mosaic and parallel method, Ndebele technique. Because of poor-quality beads, the product can warp, and it will lose all its attractiveness. If you decide to weave for yourself or as a gift graceful and beautiful tourniquet, give preference to Czech or Japanese beads. In this case, the presence of a variety of beads in your stocks should not upset you. It can be used to create crafts in loop or needle technology. Such beads can be decorated with beaded bonsai stands, various candlesticks, vases and other decor elements. In this article we will weave two types of harnesses. For some, you will need the beads, fishing line or thread with a needle and accessories. For the second type of harnesses, you will need a crochet hook and minimal skills for owning it. Tri-color bracelet-plait of beads American method Materials:
- Beads 10/0 in three colors (A, B, C);
- Beads 6/0;
- Caps 2 pcs .;
- Abacus 6 x 8 mm 2 pieces;
- Connecting rings 6 mm;
- Pins 4 cm, 2 pieces;
- Needle for beads No. 12;
- Tools (nippers, round pliers);
- Monofilament or bead thread 0.1 mm;
Scheme of work We will weave in one thread. At the end of the thread we fix the stop-bead. Now you need to string 3 beads 6/0 and 7 beads 10/0 of the first color. We take the needle and in the direction from the bottom to the top it is necessary to pass it into three beads 6/0. Now string * 1 bead 6/0 and 7 beads of the first color. Again, with a needle from the bottom to the top pass through the last 3 beads 6/0 *. Repeat these steps consistently from * until reaching the workpiece is necessary for the planned length bracelet (see the first figure). Shave the first color. We begin work with the second color. The plait in the same order from bottom to top. String 7 beads 10/0 second color and go through the first three beads 6/0, then string 7 more beads and, rising to 1 bead 6/0, go through the next three. Each move is a bias 6/0 bias (see figures two and three). The third color is similar to the previous one (see figures fourth and fifth). When all the beaded plexuses are ready, there remainsonly to make ends meet. We take jewelry pins and hook the last two from the edge of the bead. We make an eyelet and put on the cap. (the seventh drawing). Now string the bead abacus, leave the pin 10 mm (the rest must be cut off) and fold it with a loop. We attach the connecting rings and the fastener. The plait-lariat with mosaic weaving The next harness we will perform in a mosaictechnique. We will show how to do it, for example, the lariat is a very beautiful turquoise color. To create such a wonderful decoration will take a lot of time and patience. At the same time the technique of execution is very easy and simple, so you can weave such strings even after watching your favorite TV shows. It will take:
- Beads 11/0 (we have a shade of turquoise, but you can choose any that you like);
- Caps 2 pcs .;
- Various beads of different shapes and sizes of a suitable color;
- Petals (metal);
- Connecting rings 5 mm;
- Tools for working with wire and jewelry pins (round-nosed pliers, nippers, pliers and thin-nosed pliers);
- Beaded needle No. 12.
If you want to weave a cord with a larger diameter, it will be necessary to strengthen it from the inside with a hollow silicone tubing or a weave of a fishing line with more rigidity. We will weave in 1 thread. String 7 beads and close in the ring. The needle emerges from the first bead of the first circle. String 1 bead and go through the thread of the third bead of the first circle, again string the bead and go through the needle in the fifth bead of the first circle, string another one and go through the needle in the seventh bead of the first circle. Now we have 3 beads of the second circle. The needle emerges from the seventh bead of the first circle. We string one bead * and pass the needle into the first bead of the second circle, string the bead and go through the second bead of the second circle, string another bead and go through the third bead of the second circle, string another bead and pass the needle through the bead *. We got two circles of 7 beads. Then weave the same way. If you want to weave a thinner tourniquet. For example, from 5 beads, which does not require reinforcement from the inside, you can use the same principle of weaving. But instead of 7 initial beads we string 5. We close into the ring, and the needle leaves the first bead. We string 1 bead and pass into the third bead of the first circle. We string another bead and go to the fifth bead of the first circle. For the second round, we have 2 beads. The needle emerges from the fifth bead of the first circle. We string 1 bead and go through the first bead of the second circle, string another 1 and go through the second bead of the second circle, string another one and pass the needle to the next one. For both bundles, repeat the sequence of steps described above. The length of the rope will depend on the number of variations of beautiful knots that you can tie on your lariat. The minimum length of the bundle is 80 cm. We have weaved 105 cm without taking into account the brush. Pin the pins in the extreme beads from bothends, put on the caps, thread the bead. Leave approximately 0.7 - 10 mm of pin, the rest cut off. End the pin with an eyelet. Now we are attaching a chain of connecting rings. Take the pins with the hats on the end and string each one on a bead. Leave approximately 0.7 - 10 mm of pin, cut off the rest and make a loop from the tip. On a chain of connecting rings, hang our beads, metal feathers in such a way that it looks like a bunch. Decorate as you like. Choose bright colors and accessories, change the length of the harness or its width - experiment. Square tow It will take:
- Beads (for example we took three colors: black, gold and bronze);
- Needle and thread.
We will weave in 1 thread. String 4 black beads and close in the ring. The needle must come out of one bead. This will be the floor of our harness. Now we sew 1 gold, 1 bronze and one more gold bead. The gold ones will be the walls, but the bronze ones. Rub a colored cord specifically to ensure that youunderstand the principle of work, and it is more convenient to do on different colors. We thread the thread in the same bead from which it comes out, but on the other hand. We tighten the thread. We pass through the next black bead. Now we need to thread the gold (wall) and bronze (top) beads and pass the needle through the (previous) nearest gold and black beads. That's what should happen. The walls of our future cube are still in the plane of the floor. Now you need to tighten the thread, and you will see how the wall rises. We pass through the next black bead of the floor. Again string gold and bronze beads and pass the needle through the previous gold and black beads. The needle is to be passed through the fourth black bead. This is how our cord looks. We tighten the thread and get three walls. We pass through the next golden bead. String 1 bronze and hold the needle through the previous bead of gold color. Now you need to pass the needle through the nearestBlack bead and the next gold and bronze. Now we pass through a needle through all the bronze beads of the ceiling and exit from the one through which we went. This will lead the needle to the bottom of the next turn of the cord. We got the first cube. We begin to weave the next "floor". Now the floor (base) is bronze. The new ceiling will be black, and the walls are still golden. So we need to string 1 gold, 1 black and 1 gold. We pass the needle through the next bronze bead of the floor and thread 1 gold and 1 black bead. Again, we pass the needle through the next bead of the wall and floor. Again, thread 1 gold and 1 black. This is the third party. We again pass the needle through the beads of the wall and the floor. For the fourth side of the wall, we are already ready. Now you just need to thread a black bead of a new ceiling. The order of passing the beads with a needle to bring it to the next "floor" is the same as the first one. Now we need to go through all the beads of the new ceiling and exit the one we went through. The black ceiling becomes a floor and the groove passessimilar to the previous steps. Weave to the required length. The creation of the following bundles will require you to crochet the most simple loops: airy, columns without a crochet, half-columns.
Ornaments woven in this way are obtainedvery dense and beautiful. Before we start knitting, we want to reveal a few small secrets. The first important point is the beginning and end of the harness. We certainly hide them in the fittings (caps), but in order to make it convenient to tie a few laps just by sticks without a crochet. For example, you have a bundle of 6 beads. You knit 3 vols. and close them in a ring. Then you sew from each vp. 2 tbsp. b / n with a common basis. You already have 6 loops in the circle. Tie in a couple more rows without any extra. Next, you will knit with the beads to the desired length. And the last rows we will again be bred without beads. 3 rows of 6 loops, and the last row of three. Thus, you have very comfortable knitting details at the ends of the harness. For them you can cling eyelets pins, and the caps will sit tight. This is not an obligatory condition, but it will be much more convenient with it. The second nuance is the thickness of the thread. The rigidity of the cord directly depends on it. If you need to give it in a product some form, use a line or thicker threads. You can try to knit a thread of double addition, provided that the diameter of the bead hole allows it. If you want to make a lariat or something as flexible, use the finest fishing line or regular thread. And of course, do not forget about the calibration of the beads. Since in the bundles of beads are adjacent to each other closely different beads will warp the product and spoil the look. If you suddenly found out in the process of knitting on the low un-calibrated bead, do not be discouraged. Push the rest of the beads further down the hill, clamp this bead with round pliers or platypuses. With your thumb, cover it, placing the thread with a bead on your index finger. And now just gently squash the bead. As the thumb covers it, the fragments do not scatter. Be careful that the thread is not damaged. Now, for example, we will show how to knit a regular round tourniquet with half-corks without a crochet. In this example, we did not knit several rows simply with threads, because This is a master class for the example of a bundle, and not a finished product. We make low beads on the thread, without detaching fromcoils. Now we need to connect the first cp. in the usual way. Pull the first bead to the eyelet. Hook the hook working thread just behind the bead and tie the loop. The first bead is bred to us. For example, in a bundle of 6 beads and now we need to tie another 5. We close them in a ring. Knitting will pass along a spiral without lifting loops. The hook is inserted into the outer half-loop by slidingbead to the right. Cut the work thread as shown in figure 10. Push the next bead on the loose low and sew a half-loop, grabbing the working thread behind the new bead. Similarly we do with the next bead on the low. Always thread the working thread before tying the half-barrel to the front. This is necessary for the beads to be on the outside of the harness, and the strings from the inner. Advice to newcomers! In order not to be mistaken when counting loops, move as much as necessary for one circle to yourself. Bracelet-tourniquet, crocheted To knit the next bundle you will need:
- Beads of beige and gold colors;
- Threads in tone;
- A hook of the appropriate size;
- Pins with eyelets are golden;
- Transparent pink beads;
- Golden leaves;
- Connecting rings.
To calculate the length of the low beads you needthe number of beads in one circle is multiplied by the length of the bundle in cm. The size of the bracelet without fasteners in our case is 17 cm. In one circle we will have 8 beads. Therefore, you need to dial 136 cm beads. Now string the beads in the following sequence: 5 beige colors, 1 gold, 1 beige and 1 gold. In this bracelet we made an interesting fixing of pins for fasteners. After pairing several rows of flagellum, insert the pin as shown in the picture and fix its loop while knitting the next circle. In the end, without tying 4 - 5 rows to do a similar fixing. Now it will only be necessary to put on the cap and make a loop on the end of the pin. To it we have attached golden leaflets and pink beads. In the second part of the article we will consider the knitting of harnesses of various modifications and the use of different loops, as well as Turkish harnesses and spiral ones.
