On the eve of the brightest and cleanestthe spring holiday of Easter is customary to decorate your house. One of the main attributes of this holiday is certainly the Easter egg. You can make this yourself with the help of crochet and thus decorate the Easter composition or use it as a festive souvenir. How to crochet an Easter egg, I will tell you in this master class. We will need:
- thin natural mercerized yarn of any shade;
- crochet hook №1,5;
- thin satin ribbon in the tone of yarn;
- a wooden egg for the stem.
Description of work. 1. Let's start with a chain of 4 air loops, we'll put it in a ring and tightly tie the resulting ring in a circle with one row of columns with a crochet. 2. Following the first row, we will also knit a second row. In order for our part to have the round and flat shape we need, from each individual column of the lower row we will fasten two columns of the upper one at once. 3. Third row, unlike the previous one, we'll fasten everything without any additions, that is, only one column with a crochet from each column of the bottom row. 4. The next row we will tie a little differently, in it we will perform arches, consisting of 4 air loops each and attach them one by one by a connecting post. Later in these arches we will stretch a decorative ribbon. 5. Next, in the next row from each arch, we'll fasten 4 bars with one overhang. 6. We try the knitted crochet on our wooden egg base. If you do not have this kind of hand, you can use a plastic or empty shell of a raw chicken egg. To do this, you must first blow out all the liquid contents from it and thoroughly rinse the shell from the inside, so that later the souvenir does not get an unpleasant smell. Pay attention, work with a real egg shell should be neat, as it is fragile and can easily be damaged. After trying on our workpiece, the next row we are tying, making a uniform reduction of the columns in a circle, so that the cover exactly repeats the shape of the egg and snugly attached to it. 7. We continue to knit, without removing the cover from the base, evenly reducing the number of columns. To do this, we alternate one column with a crochet with three bars, tied together in one loop. 8. We continue to knit this way until the cover fills the entire base, and the number of our loops does not connect to one at the base of the egg. 9. To decorate an ornamental knitted egg on the handle of an Easter basket or a willow twig, we remove from the base a long chain of air loops, from which we then form a large loop. 10. It's time for decorative elements. We draw a thin satin ribbon between the holes made in the form of arches. 11. We tie the ends of the tape to a knot and form a neat little bow of them, we cut off the excess. 12. In the upper part of the egg, we also stretch the ribbon between the bound columns, only in contrast to the central one, we do not tie its ends in a bow, but hide it inwards. 13. Here is an Easter egg, crocheted, we did it.
