A lot of colors are made by needlewomen andhand-woven from paper, thread, napkins and so on. A variety of materials for the manufacture of this beautiful plant provides space for the imagination of the masters. Today I want to tell you how you can weave a carnation of gum. The work takes about fifteen minutes, and the result exceeds all expectations. In order to make a carnation, we will need:
- Rubber bands;
- needle (invisible);
This is perhaps one of the easiest and fastestways to create a flower. In this way you can weave not only the carnation, but also the rose. Let's make a chain of 40 links of red rubber bands. You can, of course, take any other color, but still we often see red flowers. You can also weave a two-tone carnation. But then it is better to take two shades of the same color and the first row to weave more light. And now, as if to tug back. We lower the hook to the first link and pass through it one rubber band, not paying attention to the already existing loops on the hook. We need to grab another 1 and transfer to it all the loops that are currently on the hook. Next, we must skip one link and lower the hook to the next link. We pass through it one rubber band. We need to grab another 1 and transfer to it all the loops that are currently on the hook. So we will perform the weaving until the end of the chain. When we weave a new row, then we will not lower the hook in the links, but in the holes in our element. And in this line, our actions will be slightly different. We lower the hook into the hole and pull out one rubber band. Next, we hold one rubber band through the first three on the hook. And we put all the bands on one. We lower the hook again into the same hole and repeat. And once again we repeat our action. That is, we must weave each hole three times. As a result, our weaving starts to twist slightly. When the series is completed, we will need to form the flower itself. To do this, thread the thread in the needle or cling to the invisible and collect the weave on it. We pull the threads as tightly as possible and tie themtwo nodes. We remove the excess threads and attach the flower shape. Now we need to continue it. Here we need a machine with two rows. For any six loops of a flower we hook the hook and put them on the columns. It is better to take the loops as close as possible to the middle. On these columns we arrange pairs of green rubber bands,turning them with the figure eight. We sort of connect six columns of two rows. A rectangle of rubber bands is formed. Now we crochet the red loops from all the columns, carrying them over these columns. Now also on the rectangle we have pairs of rubber bands, but straight. That is now you do not need to turn them in the form of a figure eight. We toss the bottom two elastics. Plait another 2 times exactly the same rows of green. Do not forget to drop the bottom layer each time from each column of each row. Elastic bands from the last columns are dragged to the previous ones and we drop the bottom layer. Now there are four columns left. Two in each row. Shave once. Again we transfer the gum. And, finally, we have only two columns, one in each row. We put a stick into the center of the flower. And now we will make a stalk. Just pull on one rubber band for two columnsand reset the bottom bands. We put rubber bands on this stick too. We'll just crash it. So repeat to the end. We throw the last gum on this stick. Nothing to tie it is not necessary, the stem and so will not disintegrate. That's how you can create a carnation very quickly.
