Crochet an elegant scarf: lesson for beginners Such needlework, like knitting, brings not only moral and aesthetic satisfaction, but also a benefit, because a lot of stylish and unique things can be crocheted. For beginner skilled workers it may seem that they are not yet ready to make such seemingly complicated things as a scarf. This master class will prove that it is not so difficult, and for this it is necessary to study a number of knitting schemes available to many. The following tools and materials are necessary for knitting a scarf:
- crochet hook (5 mm);
- yarn (two coils about one and a half meter scarf);
- needle knitting (from a simple needle for sewing differs a big eye and blunt end).
Learn how to properly hold the hook. Even experienced masters do not always hold the hook correctly. It should be taken as well as a ballpoint pen: the index finger and the thumb are placed on the handle of the hook, and the other fingers serve as a support under it. Regardless of whether you are left-handed or right-handed, the hook is always held in the right hand, and in the left hold the thread and the future product. We make the first loop. First, we need to tie a strong knot for the row that serves as the base of our scarf. To do this, wrap the end of the yarn (retreating 6-7 centimeters from the edge) around the index finger, crossing the thread. Next, the hook is inserted under the thread, going to the edge, and we cling to it for another thread. The resulting ring is removed from the index finger, but without removing the thread from the hook, and clamp the other fingers with a thread with a tip coming from the hank. Pulling the two strands, the knot will tighten well. Then, pull the tip with your left hand, and hold the right thread from the tangle, as a result of which the knot rises up to the hook. We knit the first air loop. From this type of hinge, the base of the product is always created. To do this, we throw on the index finger a thread coming from the tangle (below we will refer to it as a working thread), holding it with the middle finger, while holding the tip with the pads of the middle and index fingers. We thread the working thread with a crochet hook and pull it through a loop located on the hook. Thus, you will get an air loop. We mess up the chain. To do this, grab the working thread and stretch it through the loop on the hook. Having pierced a series of such loops, you can see that it looks like a chain. It will determine the width of our product. It depends on what thickness you want to get a scarf, you need to knit from 12 to 18 loops. We finished the first row and now move on to the second one. His knitting pattern is slightly different from the previous series. It is basically determined by the pattern that you choose. We pass the first loop to the center of the nextwe introduce a hook. Through this loop we stretch the working thread, previously hooked with a hook. Again we catch thread and pull through two loops. The output is a column without a crochet (sb). We knit so until the end of the chain: we introduce a crochet hook into the loop, grabbing a thread for it. Again, grab the thread and pull through the two loops on the hook. We pass to the third row. After you connect all the loops of the chain, you need to slightly change the scheme of actions, which will be relevant until the end of the work. First we knit the sb in the most extreme loop of the chain. Next, we form another vp. After that, we catch the working thread and draw it through the loop on the hook. In this way, you will have a lifting loop. Columns have some height, so you need to add a loop to go to the next row, and afterwards, turn the product so that it is knit from right to left (i.e., rotate by 180 degrees). Looking at the first row from above, you can see the chain. It is under its links that the columns in the 3 rd and the following rows are knit. We find the first link and introduce a hook under it. We catch a thread and pull them under the two halves of the link. Then the above actions are repeated: we tie the sb into each loop. We finish the third row. To do this, we knit a column into all loops of the preceding row. Periodically consider the loop, so as not to be mistaken. For each series, their number will be the same. Otherwise, the scarf is unlikely to be even. Also, do not forget to tie in the end of the series and turn the product. Next we knit the necessary number of rows in accordance with the required length of the scarf. When you reach the required length, do not try to cut the thread. Finish knitting our scarf. Be sure to leave a long piece of thread (at least five to ten centimeters) after cutting it with scissors. The tip of the cut off thread is carried through the last loop, which is on the hook. Then pull the hook and tighten the knot well. Pull the end of the thread into the needle and run it through any loops located next to it, hiding the edge of the thread between them. This will ensure better fastening of the edge of our scarf. All! The scarf is ready. We hope that you have seen that there is nothing difficult in this.
