For crochet toys - wood -the following materials will be required: yarn for knitting different colors, different textures, different thicknesses; sintepon (batting, or any other material for packing); plastic balls (from old toys, large beads, etc.). Tools: hook for knitting, sewing needle, scissors. The scheme of knitting toys. We knit a tree from below upwards. Color is arbitrary. But we chose the traditional brown one for a start. The bottom. We knit a circle with columns without cords (sbn) of arbitrary size, for example, a diameter of 10 cm. We rise upwards. For this we do not add more sb. You can even several, for example, 5 sb to reduce, i.e. let's leave them evenly throughout the series. Roots. This is an entangled "ryushechki" from the bottom of the bottom. The same series of them we untying the first series of ascent. Next, we knit the sb, subtracting in each second row 3 sb. To do this, we do not pass them through. After having plied several rows, for example, 8 rows, we change the thread. And we knit, as well as reducing, rows 5-7. If the embroidery is supposed to be on the trunk, then it is better to perform it as far as knitting. So it will be easier to embroider than when the trunk is attached. We untie the hollow. For this, at first we do not bind 3 sc. In the next three rows, we do not tie one in one from each edge. Two rows are tying without subtractions / additions. And in the next three rows, add 1 cbn from each edge. And in the future - add 3 sc. Thus, we close the oval edge of the hollow. We knit further, evenly reducing in each row 3 sbn. We add embroidery. In some places, you can sew beads or buttons. We knit to the size we need. We put the rest of the columns together in one column. For the inside of the hollow we sew a "cup" for the size of the hollow. The base of the cup is equal to the hollow of the hollow. The height of the walls is the thickness of the trunk in this place. The edge of the hollow is tied in. The trunk is stuffed with soft material. We sew the inside of the hollow. At the edge of the sable. Plastic balls tied with a different color, different threads. We bind the tied balls to the top of the trunk. Playing, the child will hold, twirl the tree inhands. Textured crocheting, volumetric foliage in the form of balls, sewn beads, buttons - all this will massage, develop tactile sensations and even thinking. But the child, of course, will not think about it. After all, this is primarily a game. A bird can live in a hollow. And she loves to visit her, for example ... hedgehog!
