Master class on how to crochet a pillow toy

I have been thinking about crocheting a pillow for a long time. But there was no concrete idea. Seeing the VKontakte emoticons in the form of a cheerful avocado, I'm immediately going to implement it within the framework of this master class.


At the yarn store, I stop at Velor by Nako Lily, the colors are gray-green and withered yellow. The thread is pretty thick. Hook # 5 is prepared for her. But there was no brown yarn from the same series, so I choose Himalaya Dolphin Baby. It is visually no different from velor, but somewhat thicker. For knitting it will be convenient hook number 6.

The knitting progress is simple. These are two parts of the same size - halves of one avocado. I will not sew them, but I will tie both walls together.

Amigurumi Ring

Magic ring, as it is otherwise called, will be the basis for knitting halves. In the photo I will demonstrate how to make an amigurumi ring. We orient the working thread in the way shown in the photo.

  • The non-working end of the thread is not oriented from the side of the hand, but where the fingertips are oriented. I can't see it, because the ponytail is too long. We thread a hook through both threads and stretch a loop.
  • Hold the tail with a free finger (my index finger). Here's how it should turn out.
  • I look at knitting from above to make it easier. I see two threads.

  • I knit a loop from the loop closest to the palm.
  • I traditionally knit 6 single crochet into the resulting ring.
  • Now I pull the non-working ponytail tightly. There is no big gap, the loops are neatly tied, and there are no extra threads.

Step by step knitting of halves with a detailed description

The further course of knitting will be in a spiral. I decide not to start the rows with stitches, so I use a large pin for the marks. The second knitting line is completely increments. In each loop of the previous row, 2 single crochets are knitted.

  • In the second row, the increments alternate with 1 single crochet in the loop of the previous row. As a result, you get 18 s. ... ... For convenience, it is better to recount them.
  • On the third line, 2 single crochets are knitted, and then an increase. We consider: it should turn out to be 24 s. / n.
  • It turns out a little not a circle, but a hexagon. Do not be upset, when joining knitted parts, the corners will be smoothed out. Row 4 involves the alternation of 3 b / n columns in the loops of the previous row and an increase. There will be 6 such rapports. The total number of columns should be 30.

  • To get the convex nucleolus of our future pillow, the next row will be without increments. Just knit 30 single crochet in a row in a circle. On this we finish knitting with a brown thread. We will cut it off and carefully hide it in the resulting canvas.
  • To further add volume to our pillow, we knit the next row along the back loop, and not for both, as it was before. Let me remind you that the thread is already gray-green.
  • 4 single crochets in the first row with a new thread will be interspersed with an increase. There are 6 such rapports again, because the number of loops is a multiple of 6. Let's count at the end of a row of loops and find that there are 36 of them. / Li>
  • The next 4 rows obey a simple system. In the 2nd row there will be 6 rapports of 5 single crochets and one increase, in lines 3, 4 and 5 there will also be 6 rapports, but the number of single crochets will increase by one before the increase. Therefore, in the 3rd row - 6 s. ... +1 increase, in the 4th row for 7 s. ... ., and at 5 - 8. Do not forget to count the number of knitted columns, so as not to get confused and not get lost. In row 2 - 42, in 3 - 48, in 4 - 54, and in 5 - 60 b / n columns.

How to embroider with a sewing machine

Today's master class for those who want to learn how to embroider with a simple sewing machine.

You can embroider with any lockstitch sewing machine that can adjust the upper and lower thread tension. The most comfortable are the center-bobbin foot sewing machines, which free up both hands of the embroiderer for work. You can use old cars that you inherited from your grandmothers and great-grandmothers.

Modern cars are driven by an electric motor, and we need a hand or foot drive in the machine.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to embroider on a typewriter with an electric motor! The fact is that at low speeds (with weak pressure on the pedal), the electric motor shaft rotates unevenly, in jerks. If in your machine the rheostat (a device in the pedal that changes the voltage) allows you to ensure the slowest rotation of the flywheel and at the same time the movement of the needle is smooth, without jerks, then this will be your incredible luck! My "Seagull" cannot! And, frankly, I do not know of such cases when an electric machine made it possible to do embroidery. And you can embroider only at a small number of machine revolutions, since the movement of the hoop is possible only in the intervals between the punctures of the fabric with a needle. We need coordination of the work of arms and legs, which will certainly appear over time. And at the very beginning, your right hand will almost constantly lie on the flywheel in order to make punctures in the fabric with the needle as accurately as possible, according to the lines of the embroidery pattern.
