To begin with it is necessary to be defined for what purpose the flower will be intended. Conditionally they can be divided into flat and three-dimensional ones. The latter can be attached to artificial stems and used as an element of the decor of the room. Such a bouquet in a vase will not fade and will delight bright colors for a long time.

In general, in the application of colors of the frame creates only the imagination of the needlewoman. So, when with the purpose of a flowerdecided to think about the characteristics of yarn. Modern manufacturers produce hundreds of different types of threads, from natural, artificial raw materials and mixed variants. There are no weighty arguments for or against any specific quality and composition of threads. Just remember that if the product is intended for wearing on the body (for example, a blouse in the technique of Irish weaving or a lace insert on the dress), it is better to give the yarn out of natural components - cotton, silk. Bulky flowers can be knitted from almost any thread. When creating a flower from cotton threads, the product can then be starched to give the desired shape. To do this, mix 1 tbsp. l. starch with 1 glass of water, heat on the fire without boiling, when the mass becomes a jelly-like cool, soak the petals and leaves of the flowers with this solution and leave to dry completely, giving it a pre-designed shape. If the flower is knitted from acrylic or other artificial yarn, it can be impregnated with a mixture of PVA glue with water (1: 1). Just to create the right contours, for example, for irises or orchids, a thin wire or line is tied to the last row of petals. In order for the flowers to turn out as intended, you need to correctly select the hook. Manufacturers indicate the number of the hook on the label with the yarn, if the information is not enough to measure the diameter of the thread and the head of the hook in the thinnest place, if they match, then the hook is suitable. Another plus in favor of knitted flowers is training to beginners.

A chain is typed and 5 bp. and is closed in the ring by a connecting loop. First row. Produced with 3 ppp, 2 tbsp. sleep in the center of the ring, 3 cp, 1 tbsp. in a ring. This is one petal. The next petal is exactly the same * 3 ct, 2 tbsp. sleep in a ringlet, 3 cp, 1 tbsp. in the ring *. Repeat from * 3 more times. A total of 5 petals. After the last st. in a ring, a thread of white color is taken, stretches into it and is fastened 1 st. Second row. Prolonged elongated st. бн, for this purpose the hook is introduced into the ringlet, the working thread is grasped and 2 loops are sewn, like the usual st. bn, then 2 bp, 1 tbsp. bn (the hook is inserted between the 2 st lines of the row of the row below), 2 sts, elongated st. bn (the hook is inserted into the ringlet). All other petals are tied in the same way. 2 years, 1 tbsp. бн between 2 tbsp. сн, 2 в.п., 1 elongated st. in a ring. The row 1 closes with a connecting column. The thread is fixed, trimmed, the tail is hidden from the wrong side, and the flower is ready. To create the next flat flower you will need:
- Fine yarn (for this master class YarnArt Acrylic was used);
- Hook No. 1.5.
A chain of 6 bp is transmitted. and is closed in the ring by a connecting loop. First row. Then, 3 tpp are fastened. and 23 tbsp. sleep in a ringlet. Ends with 1 connecting column. The next round begins with 3 ppp, then is st. sn in each loop behind the back wall. Second row. It is transmitted as follows: 3 in.pp, then alternate 1 tbsp. sn, and 2 tbsp. sn in one loop of the row below. Ends with 1 connecting post. All eyelets are tied behind the back halves of the loops. Third row. Provjazyvaetsya similar to the second: 3 ppp, then alternate 1 tbsp. sn, and 2 tbsp. sn in one loop of the row below. Ends with 1 connecting post.

It turns out 46 loops. The claret yarn is joined with 1 tbsp. bn, then tie in Tunisian technique (when all the loops of the series are on the hook) (Figure 2). The edge (last) loop of the set is pulled from st. bn yellow color. When knitting the return row, loosen all the stitches by 2. When the knitting starts, after the edge loop and the first Tunisian column, you need to make the addition by pulling the loop out of the horizontal jumper between the rows of the row below. Add until the 12 hooks on the hook (along with the edge) on the hook (Figure 4). The next row is tied with shortened rows (in the dial-up we do not stretch the eyelets from the last 2 items of the bar, in the reverse row we connect the first loop with a single loop, and all the other ones are sewed according to 2. (Figures 5 and 6) .Provyazyvat, alternating the usual and shortened rows. the loops of each row are indicated as (1 + 8 + 1, etc.). The upper part of the lid is tied by fourwedges. Each of them begin by tying a shortened series of 9 items, then a shortened row of 6 items, then 3 items, again 6 items. and 9 st., and again the usual full row is pegged (Figures 9 and 10). The second half is knitted symmetrically. For 12 rows to the end, starting each set of rows, to pin losses, pulling 1 loop of two Tunisian art. attach a wire and tie a row of pico (figure 15 - 18). Internal petals. It will take 3 pcs. for one flower. Miter inner lobes to tielilac yarn 31 cent. + 1 VPP Further, the petals are bound similarly to the outside, except for the wedges (the sequence of the number of columns 10, 8, 4, 7). (figures 19 through 36) Stem. A piece of wire with 15 cm at one end is twisted into a spiral. Its internal diameter should correspond to the diameter of the filaments of the filaments together with the wires from all the petals. (Figures 37 and 38). All threads and wires are threaded into a spiral (Figure 40). Expand the petals in the desired direction. Attach all the wires and threads with a green thread to the wire, tighten tightly (Figure 41, 42, 43) tightly fasten the brooch clip (Figures 44 and 45). After measuring 2 cm from the edge of the fastener to form a loop from the wire, wrap the thread in the opposite direction and hide the thread.
