A small soft herringbone can be used asdecoration for a big Christmas tree or keychain, you can put it next to the guests' plates on the New Year's table or give it to your friends. It will also create an excellent needle bed. For the Christmas tree we will need:
- Green thread;
- beads for decoration;
- Cotton wool;
- Needle and thread.
This soft Christmas tree is very simple and fast to knit. Cope with it, even one who only learns crochet. It is perfect for doing handicrafts with children. This herringbone consists of two identical parts, connected together. So, let's start knitting. We will hook the initial loop and tie the 1 air loop. Now in the same loop we will fasten a simple post. Let's unfold knitting and we will fasten one air loop and two simple posts. The next row will consist of 4 bars andone air loop at the beginning of the row. Here, and further in each row will need to add 2 loops. Hinges need to be added one at a time from each edge, that is, two simple stitches are fastened from the outer loops. In total in this row there will be 6 posts and 1 lifting loop. Now we need to make 9 loops - 8 bars and 1 lifting loop. In the next row, we connect 11 loops. And in the final row we'll sew 13 loops. The first triangle of our Christmas tree is ready. Cut the thread. Continue knitting will be a new thread, retreating 4 post from the beginning of the first triangle. In the fifth column we will bind 2 simple posts. Then we will link three more simple bars and finish the series with two bars from one loop. To the end of the series there should be 4 posts. Next, we knit just like the first triangle. In the next row there will be 9 loops, then 11 and 13 loops. But after 13 loops we will tie one row without any increase. But in the last row again we will make an increase and we will link 15 bars. Cut the thread again. Turn it over and see what happened. The third triangle will begin to knit, retreating again4 loops from the edge of the second triangle, again with two bars from one loop. Then we will fasten five simple columns, and again we will connect two columns from one. The total should be 9 loops. In the last triangle we knit like this: the starting row - 9 loops, the second row - 11, the third 13, the fourth and the fifth - 15, the last, the sixth, the row - 17 loops. Similarly, we knit the second half of the Christmas tree. Now we will connect both halves together. We make it by simple columns, starting the strapping from the edge of the lower triangle, and moving to the top of the tree. Having reached the top, we continue tying the Christmas tree on the other side. We reach the base of our Christmas tree. In the process of binding we hide the yarn inside our Christmas tree. Through the rest of the party we fill our Christmas tree with cotton wool. And finish the strapping of the bottom. Now it remains to decorate our Christmas tree. For decoration, we use acrylic pendants in the form of crystals. And bright acrylic beads. You can decorate both one side of our Christmas tree, and both.
