I remember how on long winter evenings my mother readTo me fairy tales. One of my favorites was a fairy tale about "The Snow Queen". Her brave Gerda, despite all the misadventures, found her happiness. Mom leafed through the pages of the book, and I listened with interest to the long story and, of course, looked at the pictures. A small, brave girl, somewhere on the edge of the land, Kai recovers from the Snow Queen. I looked at the pictures and thought: "How brave she is! And how cold is she? " To my question, I soon received an answer. One day, waking up in the morning, I saw a brand-new vest bound by my mother. For me it was like a fairy tale. To make your daughter feel like a heroinefairy tales, I suggest you give her a warm waistcoat. To do this, you will need: • Svelana yarn - 130 g (composition: 50% wool, 50% acrylic) your girl's favorite color. • Needle №2. • Knitting needles №3,5. • Hook # 2, to create loops. • 2 buttons. Let's begin: We unfasten the elastic band 2 x 2: alternately we knit according to the following scheme: 2 face / 2 purl; we tie the wrong side of the picture. Elastic band 1 x 1 is formed according to the scheme: 1 front / 1 purl. In the purl strings: the face loop is tied under the spoke (next to it below), and the purl is unchanged. When creating an openwork pattern, we use the scheme (only the front rows are represented on it - the wrong side is knitted according to the drawing). Before: on our spokes number 2, we collect 74 loops and we tie 4 cm of rubber 2x2. When the elastic is ready, go to the spokes 3,5 and for the next row we remove 10 loops - we must have 64 loops. We continue to knit our product according to the following scheme: we begin with the edge loop, then 7 loops of elastic 1x1. After that, we fasten 48 loops of a figured pattern, 7 loops of elastic 1x1 and finish with a loop loop. When our waistcoat "grows up" to 17 cm, it is necessary to close 3.2 and 1 loops for the armhole on each side in each even row. We tie it about 10 cm and start creating a cutout for the neck. For the neck we close 18 loops in the middle and then each side is tied separately. For a beautiful rounding of the notch on the inside, close each face line 5 times one loop. The remaining 12 loops are closed at a time, and the other side is also pulled out the same way. We knit the back in the same pattern, only without a cutfor the neck. At a height of 14 cm from the beginning of the armhole opening, close 12 shoulder loops on each side. The other hinge loops are removed on the additional spoke. Our wonderful waistcoat is almost ready. To collect it you need to perform shoulder seams. At the edges of the armhole on spokes (we use knitting needles No. 2) we collect 86 loops and we tie an elastic band 2x2. We sew 7 rows of rubber band, close the loops along the pattern and perform side seams. To our crumb was warm, we bind the collar. For this we need knitting needles 3,5. On the neckline we type 74 loops starting from the left shoulder. We knit 13 cm with elastic band 2x2, we close the loops according to the drawing. The side seam of the collar is not stitched. It is necessary to unscrew the collar on the front side and on one side to sew our two buttons, and on the other - to make 2 hinged hooks. Our waistcoat is ready. Let your girl wear it with pleasure.
