Below are a few schemes for knitting balls. Our master class is executed according to the second scheme. The first river. In a ring of 6 cp. bind 4 cpp, 23 tbsp. s / 2n. Finish 1 с.с. with the 4th interf. The second river. 4 cpp, 1 stp, then we knit in each loop for 1 tbsp. s / 2n, alternating them with 1 vol. we end the circle in the same way as the first 1 c.s. in the 4th cp. Third r. 3 vpp, 1 stp, then we knit in each st. s / 2n second round of 1 tbsp. с / н, between them we are tying on 1 в.п. We finish the series similarly to the previous two 1 s.s. in the 3rd cp. Fourth р. 1 с.с., 1 в.п.п.п., 1 tbsp. b / n in the same stitch of the base, * 1 st, then to the next st. the third row is knitted (1 st c / n + 5 vp + 1 st c / n), 1 cp, next cp. third circle we knit 1 tbsp. b / n *. We continue to knit from *, we finish the series 1 s.s. in the first art. b / n. The Fifth River. 1 pp, 1 tbsp. b / n in the same loop of the base, * 1 in., in the arch of 5 cp. We knit (1 stp + 1 item s / n 4 times + 1 more s / n), then we knit 1 cp, 1 tbsp. b / n in 1 tbsp. b / n of the fourth row *. We continue from * to the end of the circle. We finish 1 с.с. in 1 cp. It is necessary to connect two such halves of the ball. When you knit the second, after completing the fifth row, you need to link another 6 c.s. The loop will come out of the third st. s / n, tied in an arch of 5 cp. Next, take the first half of the future ball, grab a similar third st. with / n and a connecting column we connect both halves. Now we sew 5 cp. and again draw 1 c.s. in the next third century. с / н of both halves. We thus transmit the whole circle. Now you need to put a balloon inside. We inflate it so that it stretches the knitted billet. Threads must be tight. The next step is to cover with PVA glue. If you do only a couple of balls, you can smear the thread with glue using a brush. In this case, a large number of future toys should be lowered into the adhesive solution completely. To do this, dilute the glue with water 2: 1. Now just immerse the balls in it, take it out and leave it to dry. It can take almost a day, please be patient. To make the balls of thread form, you can alsouse starch paste. Prepare it very simply. Mix 3 teaspoons of starch with a glass of water (200 ml). Now it is necessary to bring the mixture to a boil, stirring. When the blanks dry, the balls are blown off, you canuntie a knot or just pierce the ball with a needle. Now it remains only to attach the eyelet to the balls. Such crafts can be decorated with sequins or painted in gold or silver. The original open-work balls will be an excellent decoration of the interior and the New Year tree. And to create such a ball of thread does not even need the ability to crochet.
