This master class for beginners will teach crochet souvenirs for the birth of a child
Shall we start, masters? I needed cotton threads of two colors andhook number 1,5. The cradle is knit from the bottom. Recruiting 15 air. loops (you can more if you want the product to be longer and bigger in size). Now we tie this stripe from the air loops on both sides, forming a circular row. In each loop - one column without a crochet. Only in the first and last loops - 4 st.b. The next row is also in a circle, but on both sides you need to add 4 more bp. (in each loop added in the last row we loosen 2 loops each). In the third row, add 2 st.b. from each side. The same thing is done in the 4th, 5th and 6th row - two increases on each side. The oval bottom is obtained. The next row is tied in this way: we grab only the back of each loop and knit without adding a column without a crochet. Thus, we have the bottom of the cradle and we begin to knit the walls. The next 3 rows are knitted in the usual way and without changes (you can also connect more rows if you need higher walls). We cut off the thread and hide it. The base is ready. We start knitting, as I call it, a hoodcradles. Here I decided on the eye - how wide the hood I like - I measured 12 loops on each side of the head of the product. Thus, for the hood, I typed 24 columns with a crochet - 12 on each side of the middle of the headboard. The next 2 rows are knit straight, without adding. 4 the hood row is knit with decreasing - so, out of 4and 5 stitches 1 loop is loosened. From 8 and 9, 12 and 13, 15 and 16, 19 and 20, just unscrew the 1st column with a crochet. In the 5th row 3 times (I just distributed them evenly in a row) we unfasten 1 loop of four. We have 10 loops. And in the next row we unfasten one loop from them and close it, gently hiding the tip of the thread. It should be noted that for a more rigid hood, it would be possible to tie it from the posts without a crochet. But I liked my option more. So it turns a little ribbed, as if it can be folded and removed. Now we tie the product completely beautifulpattern. I chose the most lazy and simple: I fixed the thread, connected the 4 air loops, then - the column without the crochet through the loop from the base. It turned out such a bridge from the air loops. Here from such bridges also it turned out my decoration. Further from the yarn of a different color I tied a sheet to lay it in a cradle. This is an ordinary rectangle of columns with a crochet. I dialed 22 air. loops and knitted 6 rows without adding. Now the blanket. The base was knitted from strings of the same color as the cradle. This is a square of 18 columns with cusps in width and 8 rows in length. Then I tied this square with another color - intone a sheet. It is a wave-like strapping: from one loop we unfasten 7 bars with a crochet, we pass 2 loops, we knit st.b., we pass 2 more loops and again 7 sticks from one loop. Further in the same spirit. Thus, the product is ready. You can put a small doll or a toy under the blanket. A nice and memorable souvenir for happy parents is ready.
