Christmas tree crocheted
For the new year, Christmas trees do not happen much, so small knitted Christmas trees can be prepared as an independent gift or you can attach a box with a New Year's set. This indispensable New Year's attribute will please, and decorate, and will be remembered.
Another nice moment - materials for making knitted Christmas trees at needlewomen always at hand. Useful remnants of yarn of all shades of green, white, blue, silver. Yarn type or sectionally dyed yarn will be very useful, a melange of several colors will look beautiful, a thread with lurex will add a shimmering snow effect. If you use a thick yarn or cord, then the product will be textured, embossed. In general, here you proceed from the whole variety of stocks of your pantry master.
In addition, all sorts of shine and bright things will come in handy. These are beads, buttons, satin ribbon, sequins, large beads, rhinestones, flat glass marbles and other catchy colored trivia.
Christmas trees will be knitted, so you should stock up with a hook of the appropriate size. All work is done by tight knitting from the crocheted columns. Knitting begins with a chain of 5 vp, which closes in a circle, and then we impose on it the first row of non-crocheted columns of 2 tbsp. on each loop of the lower row and on, evenly adding loops, we knit a flat circle of any diameter we need. This is the bottom of the Christmas tree.
The more the bottom, the higher the tree. Then we stop adding the loops and knit at least 2 rows with the same number of loops, raising the knitting tops, then diminish the 2-3 loops again, knit the row without diminishing the loops. In the same way we continue knitting, forming a knitted cone.
When a small distance remains to the top of the cone, a filler should be placed in the remaining hole. Synthetic winterizer, holofiber, batting, thin non-woven fabric (as in our case), cellulose napkins, even nylon from ladies' tights can serve as a filler.
After the filler is placed inside, the top of the Christmas tree can be completed, already reducing 3 loops in each row. It turns out here is such an elastic dense cone.
Depending on the original yarn threads, Christmas tree cones look different.Some are rich in green, others are covered with white snow, and still others give a bluish tint, as if in the morning twilight.
The case for the decoration. We prepare small ribbons from ribbons.
With the help of hot melt adhesive, putting it in a small amount on the surface of the cone, we fasten beads, buttons, bows, marbles, i.e. all that you have prepared for decoration.
Fir-trees turn out very various and elegant. They can be made for all friends and attached to the New Year's gift. This will add a real holiday mood!
