To complete the cones, 6 air loops are closed:

  • An air loop, an ascent, 10 posts without a crochet;
  • 3 air loops, lifting - a pussy under the scheme from a strawberry stitch. In this row there are 5 knobs;
  • As the second, the number of knots doubles;

Experiments are welcome

It is not necessary to look for complex schemes for hooks crocheted. You can draw a picture, and the most simple columns with a crochet or without a crochet to remove the image you like.

Schemes are easy to draw on their own, on paper in a box.

For example, here is this glorious sheep-lamb.

In order to tie this tack, do not need complicated schemes and loop calculations.

First, knit in a circle with columns without a crochet, gradually increasing the diameter of the circle, tying periodic in 1 loop 2 post.

Then 4 rows are tied with columns with a crochet.

At the edge of the harness: 4 columns with a crochet - 1 without. Thus it will be possible to obtain a wavy row.

During tying, a loop is loosened from the air loops.

Similarly, the muzzle is sewn with threads of contrasting color. How many rows will need to be tied up depends on the view of the needlewoman about the size of the head of the lamb.

Hairstyle spread by means of air loops: the chain is fastened, on it 1 row of columns without a crochet, all this is arranged in the form of curls.

Lamb's legs are connected in the same way, with small pom-poms at the ends.

It is unlikely that there will be an needlewoman, for which it will be problematic to make a pompom:

  • Cut out 2 mugs of cardboard of the same diameter, in thickness equal to the size of the future pompon;
  • Tightly connect, and wrapped in yarn. When the paper is no longer visible, it turned out a thread "bagel", On the edge of the thread are carefully cut with sharp scissors, and a strong thread is inserted into the slot to fix the future product;
  • After the form is completely cut,The middle of the threads are tightened tightly, the bundle of cut filaments for the pompon is pulled once again by the ends of the thread for fastening. Thus, the pompon is tightly attached.

Pothaking - an attribute or an object of the interior?The head of the lamb is sewn to the trunk, instead of the eye pins attach beads.

You can make lamb in the form of mittens. Then you have to connect two identical parts. One - the front, with the head of the animal - the other, the back, without decorative elements.

The size of the trunk of the lamb will have to be tied up to such a size that, after combining the parts, the hand that was freely entered into the resulting mitten.

Such a tack will already be a matter of everyday life, and not an interior decor, so it's better to allocate eyelets to a sheep not by sewn beads, but simply to embroider with threads.

Potholders-souvenirs need not be hung on the walls of their house. Friends and girlfriends will always be pleased with useful accessories made by themselves.
