A crochet lesson for a cute monkey - a symbol of 2016 with a detailed description of the stages of work, a list of materials and step-by-step photos
Surely many people know that a certain signEastern horoscope symbolizes each new year. The coming New Year, namely, the 2016th, is represented by the Monkey. Therefore, many people think about gifts for their loved ones. It's better when the gift is somehow connected with the coming year. Especially actual gifts are soft toys, bought in the store or made by own hands. I want to invite you to tie a monkey with a hook. At first glance it may seem that the monkey is very difficult to connect. However, if you knit a monkey in detail, then in principle there is nothing complicated, and the process itself is very interesting and fascinating. Difficulties can arise only when knitting the head, but when you try to tie it, and you will succeed, the doubts will unwind. For knitting a monkey, I use a multi-colored artificial wool, because the knitting from it turns out to be quite dense. I would recommend that beginner needlewomen knit such a monkey out of artificial wool. In the future, if the desire is a monkey can be knit from acrylic, but the acrylic thread is thinner, so it requires more attention to make the product neat. If the thread is thin, then it is necessary to knit so that the loops adjoin each other tightly, otherwise holes will be formed through which the filler of the toy will be seen. Since we will knit a monkey for the New Year holiday, we will also link a bright New Year hat for it.
Materials and tools
To knit New Year monkey will require such basic materials:
Stages of work
When the list of the necessarymaterials, you can go directly to the very process of making toys. We will knit from a difficult part - the head. For the head, you need to take a white and green thread. The head from the white part is knit. Therefore, you need to make a chain of 4 loops and combine them. Two rows of tying in a circle (turned nose). Now we will knit from one side to the other and back. We knit a row and at the end we add one loop, we knit the next row and also make an addition to expand the product. Two rows were used, now you need to tie another 2 rows of white yarn. It turned out a white muzzle for a monkey. The green thread is required for operation. We tie our green workpieces with green yarn. We tied the first row, I propose to start the numbering from the green thread. In the second row, you should do this: to fasten two loops, and from the third to pull out two loops, then again to tie two eyelets and from the third to untie the two. Thus, you need to tie the entire series. In the third row, it is necessary to fasten the loops without loosening new loops. In the 4th row, it is necessary to do this: tie one loop, and from the second pull out two loops, then again fasten one eyelet and from the second to unfasten the two. Thus, you need to tie the entire series. The viscose should expand. In the 5 th row, you should fasten the loops withouttying out new loops. Starting with the 6th row, we will shorten the eyelets. Therefore, this series is knitted as follows: tie three consecutive loops, then thread the next loop, do not tie it and thread it in the next loop - 3 loops are formed on the hook, thread through these 3 loops. Thus, we reduced the number of loops. Further on the text under the word to cut the loop will be in view of this process. We line the 6th row to the end with the reduction of the loops. In the 7th and 8th row, you need to cut the loops every two loops. The head is well filled with foam rubber, which must first be cut into small pieces. In the 9th row, cut the eyelets through one loop. And in the 10th and 11th rows, make a cut in each eyelet, thereby completing the knitting of the head. The green thread is fixed and cut with scissors. The rest of the thread can be hidden inside the product with the help of a hook. The head is ready and you can knit a torso for a monkey. Knitting the torso suggests two options: knit from above by expanding or from below by narrowing the knit. In my opinion, the first option is convenient, so we will knit the trunk from above. The 1st row is a chain of 4 air loops, which are then combined together. And the second row should simply be tied in a circle. From the 3rd row, we'll start tying out new loops to expand the trunk, so in this row, you need to add new loops through each 2 loops. The 4th row should simply be tied in a circle. And in the 5th row make the same addition of loops, as in the 3rd row. In the 6th and 7th row, pull out the new loops throughevery 3 loops. The 8th row should simply be tied in a circle without pulling out new loops. In the 9th and 10th rows, pull out the new loops every 3 loops. The 11th and 12th series should simply be tied upcircle without drawing new loops. From the 13th row begins the reduction of loops. Therefore, in this series we make the reduction of loops in each 4th loop. Fill the torso with pieces of foam rubber, and continue knitting. In the 14th row, we cut the loops in each3rd loop. In the 15th and 17th rows, we cut the loops in each 2nd loop. In the 18-19th series we produce a loop cut in each eyelet. Knitting is finished, we tighten the thread and cut it, we remove the rest of the thread with the hook. The trunk for the monkey is ready. It is necessary to switch to knitting upper and lowerwe start to knit from the upper paws. To work, you need a white thread, dial a string of 3 air loops, tie round, and in the next 3-m row pull out the new loops of three arbitrary loops. Rows numbered 4,5,6 should be tied with a white thread without loosening additional loops. Then go to the green thread. The rows 7-12 are just in a circle. As far as knitting is concerned, the paw should be filled with foam rubber. It is rather difficult to fill the prepared foot with foam rubber, because the product is narrow, so it is better to fill it in the process. In the 13th row, it is necessary to reduce oneof an arbitrary loop. Also tie two more rows. Then in the 16th row, make a cut of 2 loops, and the 17th row - cut all the loops and finish knitting. Cut the thread and put it inside the crochet. One upper paw is ready. By the same simple scheme, you need to link the second tab. Now you need to tie the lower legs. In principle, the knitting pattern is very similar to the knitting of the upper legs. Just lower legs are a little thicker. Knitting of the lower foot begins also with a white thread: to dial a chain of 4 loops and combine, tie in a circle. From 3 arbitrary loops to loosen additional loops. Then the next 4-rd row should be tied without adding loops. 5th and 6th rows to be tied in a circle. In the work, take the green thread and tie it with the 7throw, the white thread can be cut. A green thread to tie rows 8-13 without loosing additional loops. Do not forget to fill the bottom foot with foam rubber. From the 14th row we begin to cut the eyelets, so make a reduction of 2 arbitrary loops. 15 and 16 rows to be tied without loosening additional loops. In the 17th and 18th rows, cut the loops, and complete the product. Cut the thread and remove the inside of the foot using the hook. One lower foot is fully prepared, so go to the knitting of the second foot. For the monkey, you need to tie the tail. The tail is knit from 4 loops in a circle without adding and cutting loops. The length of the tail is about 20 cm. The tail is thin and twists very well. We turn to knitting ears for a monkey. It is necessary to type a chain of 14 air loops and tie this chain on one side. Fold the chain in half and tie it, passing the hook through these two parts. Thus, the ears are dense, do not require filling and keep the shape well. Tie the resulting blank with a green thread. Cut the thread and remove excess threads inside the tab. In the same way, connect the second eye. All the details for the monkey are ready. Since the monkey is New Year's, it is necessaryto connect the corresponding cap. A red and white yarn will be required to knit the cap. Begin to knit a cap from above, so we dial a chain of 4 loops. The second row is simply tied in a circle. In the 3rd row, add loops in 3 arbitrary loops. Tie the fourth row in a circle. And in the 5 th row make the addition of loops the same as the third row. 6 and 7-th series just to tie in a circle. In the 8th row, loosen additional loops from each 3rd loop. 9th row - tie in a circle. In the 10th row, loosen additional loops from each 3rd loop. The 11th row is simply tied round. The 12th row must be tied with a white thread, finish the row, fasten the thread well and cut it. Use the hook to remove the thread inside the cap. Cover the cap with foam rubber pieces to keep it in shape. And for the cap, you need to make a pompom out of white yarn. It can be done very easily. Wrap the white yarn on your index finger. The more you wind, the more magnificent the pompom will be. Remove neatly from the finger the wound yarn and tie along the thread. Curls to cut and fluff the pompom. Pom-pound to the cap. We begin to glue together the monkey. We glue together the head and trunk, then glue the lower and upper legs. Attach ears to the head. We paste the tail, slightly twisting it. We glue to the head a New Year's cap, and on the neckwe tie a bow from an orange satin ribbon. Bant slightly fix with glue. Glue the eyes. The nose is made of black yarn like this: dial a chain of 4 loops and connect the last loop with the first loop. The nose is ready, it too to paste. The New Year monkey is completely ready and carries with itself pleasure not only for children, but also for adults. Such a bright and gentle symbol of the New Year will not leave anyone indifferent. The height of such a toy is 22 cm.
