Soft toys, connected with their own hands, alwayslively and warmer than purchased. They have a part of the soul of the one who created them. They are always unique, unique and original. In this master class I want to show how you can simply and quickly connect an interesting cowshed with a crochet. For her knitting you do not need to master the crochet virtuously - just know the basics, be able to knit simple stitches without a crochet and airy loops. Yes, and materials and time for it you need very little, and the result you just will be pleased. So, for the sheep needs:
- Acrylic threads (25g / 40m): lilac - 25 gr, little by little violet, white, dark blue and beige;
- needle with a large eye;
- wadding or sintepon for packing.
Let's go. The body of the owl will consist of only one part. Let's tie the circle first. Circles we have already knitted for a snowman, and for a monkey, and for a hedgehog (my master classes on these toys you will find on our website). Let's start with 4 air loops. Then eight bars with one crochet. And in each subsequent series, we make uniformly 8 increments. So we get rows in 16, 24, 32, 40 and 48 loops. Here we stop. Next we will knit the pipe. We will do it without lifting loops, that is, knit in a spiral. We knit the pipe to a height of 10 cm. We lay aside until our torso of the owl is sideways, we begin to look at the eyes. With a white thread we knit a circle of 3 rows - 16 loops. And we do one more (the owl has two eyes). Next pupils. These are also circles, only fewer. With a dark blue thread we make circles of 2 rows - 8 loops in the last row. We also need two such circles. It remains to connect another pair of details - the wings. For the wing, we'll type a chain of 10 loops, and take the string for purple. Remember how we knit leaves for poinsettia (see p. on our website). We tie our chain on one side with completely simple columns, without crochet. And from the second side we will not finish the two loops. At the vertex of the chain we connect three bars in the extreme loop, and not one. We will develop knitting and we will make one more row of columns without a crochet. In the vertex we will also tie three bars out of one. In this row we do not connect two loops on the other side of the wing. We unfold knitting, we knit them again without a crochet. We finish knitting in the top of the wing. Now back to the trunk. We stuff the pellet with cotton wool or sintepon. "Tie" the top of the toy, connecting the opposite loops. We finish the row, cut off the thread and stretch it inside our owl. We sew our eyes. I sewed both mugs at once to the owl, without sewing them together before. Beige thread embroider beak. And sew our owl with wings. Well, what kind of a hamster can be without tassels on the ears? Let's make the brushes. For this, we cut the threads of purple and lilac flowers. In the corners we will stretch one thread and fix them with knots. Everyone! The ready brush is cut. And symmetrically we will make the second. That's such a sweet little shepherd turned out. Knit her is a pleasure, right?
