Today we will tell you how to create a crochetmonkey amigurumi - a small toy with a soft padding. Your children will surely be thankful to you, and especially if you also include other animals: seals, dogs, pigs and others. The amigurumi knitting technique used forknitting miniature toys, hailing from the Land of the Rising Sun. However, the mutual penetration of national cultures made it possible to spread this hobby to many European countries, including Russia. This needlework was especially warmly received by teenagers and mummies who want their baby to be played exclusively by high-quality products. Teenagers amigurumi can be advised inas an excellent opportunity to take the first steps in crochet, after which they will easily knit already more complex things - summer dresses, berets, or even blankets and various covers. At first, amigurumi was knitted with a hook or knitting needles, but later the toys were hooked. Nevertheless, till now it is possible to meet needlewomen, who prefer only knitting needles. In addition to all kinds of animals, you can also knit other objects, endowing them with the properties of human nature. It can be, for example, a hat with eyes and small handles. Remember that in Japanese art nothing limits your imagination. We knit a monkey. In order to start crocheting directly on a monkey, you first need to learn the basics of crochet, then nothing will be more complicated for you, since amigurumi is knitted in a spiral. Circles are not connected here, but there is also a European option, when after the closure of each new circle begins with a loop of lifting. An important condition for such toys is knittingwithout lumens, because the cracks can come out through the cracks. In this regard, the hook should be taken in size smaller than the given thickness of the yarn. You can choose the correct number of hooks either with a solid experience, or experimenting with several variants of hooks and yarn, connecting small samples and comparing them. After that, you will only acquire such threads, changing only the shades, since for such toys brightness is important, although it is worth remembering the preferences of natural colors. The toy amigurumi is made of separate parts: head, tail, limbs and trunk after being tied up, connected. Only toys consisting of a head and a trunk, without handles and legs are executed by a single cloth. To give live weight to the limbs, they are filled with plastic pieces, while the rest is stuffed with rag material. An important feature of amigurumi toysis their inherent beauty: a large ball-shaped head, a cylindrical body, small limbs. In addition to the fact that such a little animal is sure to please your child, it can be a great gift even for an adult. Nowadays it's fashionable among teenagers to take a toy amigurumi on a trip and photograph it against the backdrop of all sorts of architectural interests and other attractions on the entire travel itinerary. More details about the scheme of knitting. To obtain a spherical head during the execution of a monkey crochet, it is proposed to add the number of columns in the row and their reduction. To increase - in one column of the previous row, 2 is pinned later. For reduction - the thread is pulled through the loops of the preceding row twice, after which it is passed through all the loops on the instrument. During the execution of the first row of the chain, the hookis introduced into one or two arcs. When some projects require a convex edge, the tool is inserted into the back of the edge. Working on the next row and the preceding column, you need to enter into two arcs to get an even mating. Only in exceptional cases it is introduced into the arc of the anterior or posterior part. If there is a rapport in a row, in other words, a pattern that repeats more than once, the order of the loops is two-sided by the symbols **. As a rule, a toy "Monkey" is knitted around,creating a non-interrupted row, while the density should be high and resemble a spiral. There are times when it is necessary to mark the beginning of a new spiral row. In such cases, use special markers-pins made of plastic, so that the pointed ends do not damage the thread. In the absence of these pins take a flipping marker, or simply pass through a single column a piece of brightly colored thread. After tying the part with spiral rows, at the endIt is necessary to perform a half-column and connect the final column with the initial column in the preceding row. The thread is stretched, fixed and clipped. This completes the master class. You have learned how to knit an amigurumi with your own hands. Knit with pleasure and give your loved ones cute toys.
