- a crochet hook 3.0 mm
- 3 wooden sticks about 20 cm long
- approx. 50 cm satin ribbon by Rayher Hobbykunst, 6 mm wide, art. 51 509 in orange 34, may green 85 and white 02
- a woolen needle for sewing the threads
Fixed stitches in rounds: 6 rounds = 5 cm in diameter.
If the mesh size is different, use thicker or thinner needles.
Basic Pattern : Crochet M in Spiral Rd, crocheting steadily M, ie there is no air m, replacing the 1st M at the beginning of the Rd.
NOTE : When crocheting in Spiral-Rd, it is advisable to put a thread in a contrasting color after each round. With this method, the number of M can be controlled better. Remove the thread after the end of the round and reload at the beginning of the round.
Duplicate 1 st: Crochet 2 solid sts in the same puncture site.
Crochet script :
At the beginning of the round, as shown, replace each of the 1st sts with 1 st of air for a fixed st (= replacement stirrer) and close each round with 1 st.
Crochet the 1st to 3rd round 1x.
Color sequence A : The 1st round in color 1, the 2nd and 3rd round in color 2, the 4th round in color 3 (see plug with coral and mallow center)
Color sequence B : The 1st round in color 1, the 2nd round in color 2 and the 3rd and 4th rounds in color 3 (see mint colored center connector).
When changing color, run the air to close the Rd with the new paint.
DStb = double sticks
solid M = fixed mesh
hStb = half sticks
Warp = warp stitch (s)
Airm = air mesh (s)
M = mesh (s)
Rd = round (s)
Stb = chopsticks
And this is how it's done:
Pro egg two parts after the crochet script (instructions with crochet font to find the download under the article) in Rd, the colors as you like or as indicated.
Fasten 9 airm and 1 spare airm, then crochet the airm-stop as shown on both sides, while working the 1st fixed M in the 2nd airm from the needle. On the 3rd round, after the last increase, crochet 1 more sts in the Kettm of the Front Rd.
After the 3rd round, add 1 round of sts without any increase, crocheting one more sts at the end of the round in the Kettm of the pre-round. Then cut the thread, pull through and thread into the wool needle. Close the round with a stitch stitch, passing the needle from the front to the back under the debug piece of the 1st st at the beginning of the round and pull the thread through. Then pierce from the top into the last stitch, pull through the thread and sew.
Lay the two parts on the left side and sew them together with the desired color with pre-stitches. Make the stitches between the 3rd and 4th round for 1 st each in width. Leave a small opening at the lower end of the body. Insert the wooden stick and on both sides of it secure the opening with 2 to 3 stitches around the outer edge, so that the wooden stick is firmly in the crochet part.
