uare of 16 centimeters by 16 centimeters from black paper, then cutting it into 4 equal parts.

From white paper, we cut out a rectangle measuring 8 centimeters by 3 centimeters, in the middle we cut out our teeth( sharp or wave).

  • thread of any color.

Spade web:

  1. It is necessary to dial 5 air loops. Then you need to form a ring, for this, in the first loop we sew a connecting post.
  2. Series No. 1: We make three air lifting loops in order to form a new row. We enclose 15 columns with a crochet over the ring, then the connecting post to the uppermost lifting loop. He will be the sixteenth.
  3. Row No. 2: we dial three air lifting loops, then it is necessary to fasten in the same loop 1 column with a crochet, after which 2 air loops, and the next let through. We impose 2 columns with a crochet, 2 air loops and again we pass one. Repeating this scheme, we finish the series. At the end of this series, we fasten the connecting column to the upper air loop of the lift. As a result, we have 16 columns with a crochet and 8 arches of two air loops.
  4. Row No. 3: we make 4 air lifting loops, in the next column with a crochet we tie a new column with a crochet, then - 3 air loops, a column with a crochet is tied into the next column. Similarly do to the end of the series.
  5. We finish the series with three air loops, we tie the connecting post to the upper air loop. As a result we have 16 columns with a crochet, 3 arches from three air loops and 8 arches from one air loop.

Lace shawl from web:

Lace from web to spider is tied with air loops, about 53 pieces.

We make the spider:

  2. In the next 5 loops we sew on a half-column with a crochet. So we got 6 polololbikov.
  3. The first foot: we turn the work, we knit 9 air loops, then we sew the connecting column to the second from the hook the air loop, the other seven we also tie the connecting bars. Should have 8 connecting posts
  4. The second foot: we tie the connecting post to the first half-column, then 9 air loops, then the connecting column to the second from the hook the air loop, in the next 7 loops we sew the connecting posts. As a result, we have 8 connecting posts.
  5. The third foot: we knit the connecting post to the next half-pit, then we will need to tie 9 air loops. The second from the hook loop we sew a connecting column, then 7 connecting posts, there should be 8 of them.
  6. Fourth foot: start from the connecting post to the next half-column. We continue to work with nine air loops, then we knit the connecting column to the second from the hook the air loop and 7 air loops into the next loops. It turned out 8 connecting posts. In the same loop, from which we began to tie the four legs, we sew a connecting post.

We knit a spider's head:

We make a column without a crochet in the next 3 half-columns. Next, we unbolt 3 posts without a crochet from one loop. Then we sew a column without a crochet in the first 5 half-columns on the other side.

We make the presser foot:

To start, you need to turn the knitting and the other 4 paws do the same as those 4 that are described above.

  3. Then, with a crochet without a crochet, we sew all the white yarn. After that, from each second column, you need to tie two posts without a crochet.
  4. For the production of petals, you need to dial 8 air loops.
  5. From the typed loops we tie the columns with the crochet, and then 3 without the crochet.
  6. In the same way we sew the other petals( their number will depend on the columns without the crochet in the previous row).
  7. All the petals along the edge must be tied with a string without a thread in threads. And the next row is another color.
  8. For the sepals, from the underside of the flower in a circle from the petals, we untangle 12 sticks without a crochet of green yarn.
  9. Each subsequent row is typed with a gap of 4-5 bars, until there is only one left.
  10. We do not cut the thread, but we collect from it the necessary number of air loops for the stem( the length of the bookmark should be approximately 20-25 centimeters).Then we tie the stem with a column without a crochet, leaving a few loops in front of the flower itself. Crop thread.
  11. We knit a leaf of arbitrary shape and size, do not cut off the thread, but tie it with a column without a crochet over the stem from the place where we stopped and to the sepals. Then the thread is cut off, the tip is hidden in the sepals.
  12. If desired, you can tie a dark green thread on the stem, make veins.
