Crochet of freeform elements

Freestyle is an unusual and fascinating skill that applies not only to knitting. But it was in knitting that it gained the greatest popularity. Literally this name is translated as "free form" or "free technique".Any composition of freeforms consists of elements that are created separately, after which they are collected together. Finished elements can be gathered in a scarf, decorate them with a hat, clothes and so on.

This technique has something in common with the technique for creating colors from ribbons. The difference is that initially you need to connect the tape. It does not matter in what style and with what pattern you will knit it. Also, you must decide on the choice of thread color, and how many colors to use in one flower. So, you can make monochrome flowers or even threads of different colors, if your idea req

uires it. For example, three-stage flowers look very beautiful. They consist of three separately connected ribbons, say pink( 1), white( 2), and pink( 3).In this case, tape 1 is the core, it is the shortest. Tape 2 - the second circle of petals, it is approximately one and a half to two times longer than the first. Ribbon 3 - the longest - three to four times longer than the first.

To assemble the ribbons in a flower, do the following: simply fold them and sew them at the base. In doing so, you can pull the flower, do different sizes of petals, open one and close the others.

For a flower with a diameter of three centimeters, it is necessary to connect approximately 10-15 centimeters of tape.

Learn how to learn to knit with knitting from the ground

To enrich the appearance of colors, you can use additional decor material, for example, Beads, beads, lace, satin, tulle ribbons. For the easiest addition of such a ribbon, just put it over the knitted and form a flower.

And that's what you can assemble from ready-made flowers.
Flowers collected in a scarf photo
Fatine, guipure, lace will look beautiful only in tandem with a knitted ribbon of fine threads. This combination will add a flower of weightlessness, brittleness, make it more voluminous and at the same time not heavier visually.

Element simple leaves

Finished leaves photo
Required materials:

  • yarn for knitting the desired color;
  • hook( choose the number for the selected yarn).

The leaf actually knits very simply, but its scheme seems very complicated. We will disassemble this scheme step by step and perform knitting step by step.

We collect 10 air loops, the second row is tyed as indicated by the arrow, and make the connecting column in the very first air loop.

Corrugate 8 more air loops and turn all knitting. We knit the third row.

The last row of binding a leaf can be either a column with a crochet or not. When tying the last row, do not turn the cloth.
We tie the last row of photos
We finish the leaf with a strap around the circle with connecting posts. We select where the middle of the finished leaf will be and along it we sew a row of columns without a crochet. We fix this series with a connecting post. In this way, we created a leaf vein and betrayed it more natural.
We send the photo in the middle of the photo
The strapping option without the crochet is similar to the previous one, only do not need to make an additional row of connecting posts. We also make a vein of the finished leaf.

The pictures offer two options for ready-made leaves. They differ significantly in form, size and openwork.

Materials needed:

  • yarn for knitting the desired color;
  • hook( choose the number for the selected yarn).

The first thing to do is to fold the thread to create a magical amigurumi ring, as shown in the picture.

Making an Amigurumi Ring Photo

We begin by tying 4 air loops to the initial stage of knitting.

We type 4 car. Loop photo

Then, on the ring, we sew the elements in this order: 2 posts with 3 napes, 3 posts with 2 nacs, 1 air loop, 1 post with 3 napes, 1 air loop, 3 posts with 2 napes, 2 stakes with 3From the last connected column, 3 air loops.

Increase the elements on the ring photo

Tightly tighten the ring for a short edge of the thread.

We tighten the photo

We connect the last loop with a connecting post to the center of the tightened circle. The thread is fixed, cut and hide the end.

We fix the threads of the photo

Element flower with dense petals

Ready shamrock photo

In this case, the petals are very dense and bulky, especially if you use thick yarn.

Dial 4 air hinges and connect to the ring. Circulate one row in a row without a crochet.

Make a ring photo

Add a connecting loop of a different color for the petals and knit three air loops.

We make three cartridges. Loop photo

Now form the petal.

Create a crochet, insert the hook into the same loop, take the thread and pull out the loop, making it three hinges in height.

Make the first loop photo

By this principle, all the loops in the petal must be made.

We make loops in the petal.a photo

To lock the petal, hook the thread and pull it straight through all the large petal loops.

Stretch the thread photo

Other petals are also created.

And here's an example of how you can connect these elements.
