I'm a lazy knitter. And especially I'm too lazy to knit complex forms of toys. Therefore, I present a simple master class that will allow to connect a lot of snowmen with the same basis, but different in nature. For knitting I needed a bag of coloredthread-residue and hook No. 2.5 I tried to put in them different styles and characters, as I knitted them for my colleagues - each snowman with its own characteristics. But, back to basics - the body of a snowman I knittedit's very simple: I dialed 4 air. loops, closed them in a ring and dialed into this ring 12 posts with a crochet. The following series were knitted as follows. Of the three loops of the previous row, we knit 2 tbsp. with a crochet, from the fourth loop - 1 tbsp. with a crochet. Having finished the series, we get 21 loops. We knit three rows without changes. In the next row, we do a reduction - from each 3rd and 4th loop we unfasten 1 tbsp. with a crochet. In the next row we unfasten 1 tbsp. with a crochet out of all the remaining loops, pre-stuffing the body with a sintepon. So, the body of the snowman is ready. For the formation of the trunk and head, I thread the place of the improvised "neck" of the snowman. Done! I got 7 pieces, that is, 7 snowmen. Now I will tell you where the idea of knitting originateddifferent snowmen. I decided to cook them as gifts for colleagues for the New Year. In our team, all employees with brightly expressed characteristics - one girl likes to listen to music, another - fashionable clothes, one more - is fond of yoga, etc. So I got snowmen with the same features. The first snowman in me is keen on yoga. For him, I tied a hat and a yoga mat. For the cap I scored 15 air. loops, closed them in a ring and knitted two rows of columns with a crochet. In the 3rd row, I made 5 decreases - evenly, in a circle. In the next, 4th row - out of all the remaining loops, she unfastened one and gently closed it. And so, the hat is ready. Mat for yoga - this is an even rectangular cloth (from 10 loops wide and 5 rows in length) from the columns with a crochet. And to make it comfortable to wear this rug, I didfor him a strap from the air loops - it is clearly visible in the photo, and now it can be hung on the snowman's shoulder. Strap was made of simple air loops, with closed in a circle 5-6 loops on each side. Thus, the snowman yogi is ready! The next snowman is a fashionista. For him was tied in reda cap-takes and a handbag in tone. The beret is knitted the same way as the cap for the first snowman, only in the 3rd row I closed all the loops, so the hat turned out to be flatter - well, quite like a little beret. The bag fits like this: I scored 6 air. loops and tied them with columns with a crochet on both sides so that circular knitting was obtained. And then - knitting a circle behind the circle without changes until the desired length of the handbag. In the end, I made the handle of the bag from the air loops and everything - the fashion accessory is already hanging on the snowman's shoulder. Snowman No. 3 is a music lover. He has the same shape as the cap, likesnowman yoga, but there was a scarf-snud - a simple cloth of the necessary number of air loops (I made a snore two turns around the neck) and liked the width - I got from one row of columns with a crochet. Since the snowman loves music, I connected a player with headphones for it - a small rectangle of 3 loops wide and 4 bars without a crochet in length, as well as a cord from the headphones, connected from air loops with polustolbikami at the ends (to form the speakers themselves). Next, a snowman - a lover of cats (in our team, in fact, one woman well, very fond of cats and constantly feeds the homeless brothers of our smaller). The snowman knits just like everyone elserest. And he has the same cap and snod as a music lover. But the feature is cat's ears for hats. They knit right on the canvas (because I'm too lazy to type new loops, and then sew these ears to the cap) and consist of 1 st. without a crocheting, 1 tbsp. with a crochet, loosened from 3 loops, and one more st. without a crochet. Small and neat ears are produced. Next in line is a snowman - my mother (my colleague is a very young and creative mother of two wonderful girls-weather). She has a hat (same as otherssnowmen - simple and beautiful) and a scarf. For the scarf, I scored 3-4 air loops and knit a straight canvas of the length necessary to me - so that you can tie a scarf around your neck. And, she connected two little snowmen - her kids. They are smaller than the base snowmen, so the body does not fit in 21 loops (like the main ones - big snowmen), and out of 12, that is, how to add loops in the second row, so do not add more. Three rows of knit directly, and then do the reduction and close the knitting. Kids - snegavichatam also tie caps. Only not from 15 loops, as for adults, but from 8-10, depending on the type and thickness of the yarn. The next snowman is a photographer. The creative color of the hat is bright green and, of coursesame, the camera. I knit it with a straight canvas of 5 stitches wide and so many rows in length that I could bend it in half and it took the form of a camera. Next we knit a lens - a ring of 7 air. loops, the next circle is unchanged, and the third row is added to each second loop. So, the lens slightly widens - it can be seen in the photo. Carefully sew it to the camera and knit the strap of the air loops. You can hang a camera on the neck of a snowman. And, the most important snowman in the team is the royal (symbolizes our director). For him, tied the crown and cloak-cloak. The crown is a circle of 15 air. loops, one row of columns with a crochet and the last row of "crown thorns." They knit like this: * from the beginning of the series we skip 2 loops, and from the 3rd loop we untangle 5 columns with a crochet, then 3 air. Loops and 5 more columns with a crochet from the same loop. Next, a column without a crochet in the third of this whole heap loop *. From * to * repeat until the end of knitting. So, the crown for the king of snowmen is ready. Now the mantle. The mantle is a straight rectangular canvas, bound together by piles with a crochet. Tied the necessary length (slightly longer than the growth of the snowman - I thought it was more interesting), and, of course, we need strings - from the usual air loops. The mantle is ready and you can tie it around your neck. Craftsmen can experiment with the color and size of snowman shapes. It all depends on how far your fantasy goes! Such are the funny and easy-to-play snowmen. Each with his own personality and personality. Just like people.
