Crocheted leaves. Part 2

We continue the conversation about knitted leaves.

The diagram 5 shows the sheet in which the turns are connected alternately in different directions. The variety of leaf shapes decorate the composition, gives it expression. Experiment and You. What is another way to get the curved leaves? Chrome subcateg there are curved and arbitrary shapes of the leaves. Often found in the compositions of small leaves connected different-sized columns. For added strength and beauty tie their columns without nakida with “Pico” or “crayfish step” (see diagram 6 and 7).

the sheets are connected by the hook in schemes 6 and 7 Crocheted leaves. Part 2

Tip: do not knit more than 2-3 in a row polytypical. Their function is to create Plavni the transition from columns without nakida columns with nakida.

By analogy with knitting small leaves, it seems logical to knitting the leaves are of medium size columns 2 and three yo. Yes, this is possible, but the sheet even after the strapping is somewhat frail. Leaves of medium size will look better if you tie their columns without nakida, polostevichi and columns with one nakida with both sides of the VP chain (scheme 8). Tie a sheet of columns without nakida twice to the same head posts. Of course, the curved areas of the sheet add stovicek without nakida. For cutting provarite 6-7 loops and back tie them to the columns without nakida.

Another option of sheet: different-sized columns on the knit columns without nakida, which of the two parties tie a chain of air loops (scheme 9).

This sheet with Bourdon tie: crochet thread, fold in half (the Bourdon) to fix the columns without nakida in the middle Bourdon, fold threads together Bourdon. Then hold the thread along the fabric and objazyvaet columns without nakida. Tying the sheet completely, link 6-7 SC around the filament (the Bourdon) to the stalk of the leaf. Associate VP, tear off the Bourdon unevenly, attach leftovers to knitting and provarite SC in the opposite direction. The last link connecting the columns at the base of the sheet, tear off the thread and pull it inside out. The tail of the thread use for stitching elements together.

If Your idea is a canvas of delicate, transparent elements, the method of knitting the leaves changing. The diagrams show options for such leaves: small (figure 10) and intermediate (scheme 11). Tying two rows of SC will give shape.
