Learn to knit a cologne crochet: Tips for Beginners The process of knitting, like any other kind of needlework, involves both the availability of certain skills and skills, as well as certain qualities of character (diligence, patience). Knitting crocheted crochet is not something super complicated. To do this, it is sufficient to know the basics of knitting techniques of the most common loops. The loofah needs to be knitted in a circle, so you do not need to calculate the number of loops and worry about the shape of the product. To make a crochet hook you will need: • a small thickness of the hook (for example, No. 4); • Threads consisting of artificial fibers (two coils of different colors). Choose a hook In order for the washcloth to beelegant and with a thin weave, you must choose a thin hook. Remember that you will need to work with two threads. It is important that the hook was with a pointed head, otherwise the polypropylene fibers will lose their integrity. Make sure that the hook is comfortable, then the process of knitting itself will be easier and faster for you. Picking threads Knit wool is better from threads, including artificial fibers, for example, polypropylene. If you decide to do this using one thread, then the washcloth can turn out without the required volume. As for the colors used, much will depend on your imagination and creativity. If you do not want flashy color experiments, then it's better to choose the threads of different shades of the same color. And having the desire to make this thing bright, you can pick up contrasting colors. Begin to knit a loofah If you do not understand very well what the concept of "air loop" means, then do not immediately abandon the creation of a washcloth with your own hands. In our master class, we will try to explain to you as simply as possible all the features of the process of creating a bast crochet. So: We connect two threads; We create a loop from them, into which we pass ourhook; We send a series of EAs (short for "air loop"). For this, it is necessary, having hooked the thread, to pass it through the loop. We terminate this chain by ring closure. Having decided on the length of the chain, you will choose the width of the future bast. For example, having decided that the width of the bast is ten centimeters, we need to make a chain of twenty centimeters. Create the edge of the sponge Along the circumference of the ring do the RLS (short for - "column without crochet"). Thread the hook into the hole in the ring, grabbingthe main thread, we carry it through the loop. So we get 2 loops on the hook itself. Again, take the main thread and conduct it through these 2 loops. Thus, the RLS is completed. The second row is knitted in the loops of the preceding row. 3 - 4 rows will be enough. The end of the series can be easily determined at the end of the thread. We knit the basis of the bast We continue knitting the RLS,making the loops more elongated so that the bast is voluminous. The process of knitting is more rapid, in which, however, it is also necessary to pull the loops. So choose you. Instructions on how to knit RLS have already been received, and HH is supplemented with a free loop. We put a thread on the hook. In the loop of the previous series we introduce a hook. We grab the main thread in such a way as to make a loop on the finger. We draw 2 threads through the loop of the row and drop it from the finger. On the hook there are four loops. Hook with the captured working thread is carried through the first 2 loops of 4 received. Two more loops remain on the hook. We again thread the working thread through the remaining 2 loops. We make a series and turn the product out by loops inward, thus ensuring the convenience of knitting. We wire CH, pulling the loops until our sponge gets the required length. The final 3 - 4 rows are tied with the RLS, like the first rows. Do the washcloth handles After completing the work with the mainpart of the washcloth, start making handles for it. In the first loop of the series we make the RLS, and from the resulting loop we sew the chain VP. The handle will have a length that depends on the length of the chain. We fix the end of the chain, making a pair of RLS inSulfur tip of the sponge so that the points of attachment of the handle are located symmetrically. Securing the chain, we begin to tie the handle. The technique is similar to the one used to create the main part of it. Next, do RLS, grabbing each loop of the air chain. We have enough and 1 row, although, if desired, you can make a large thickness of handles. After finishing the row, we make 2-3 more loops in the extremity of the bast for greater strength. We stretch the loop and tie the knot. We cut the thread with scissors. The other pen is made using the same technology asprevious. First, attach 2 threads to the edge of the bast, attach it, making a few loops. We impose a chain, we fix symmetrically, on the perimeter we sew the necessary number of loops, fixing them in the extremity of the bast. We turn to the top of the "lohommy" of our product. Pay special attention to the importance of uniformknitting and the same density. If you do not get something right now, you will certainly get it later. This principle of creating a sponge "in a spiral" makes it possible to hide flaws. And already all the subsequent products will get better and more beautiful for you, and it will take much less time to occupy the entire process than initially. A self-made wool can becomea good presentation to the celebration. You can supplement it with original soap and a quality bright towel. And it is better, if all of the named things, will be made by you personally. Fantasize and please your family and friends!
