If you have a lot of old jersey lying around, do not rush to throw it away.
I suggest you use it in an unusual way - to weave flower pots out of it.
You will need
- - knitted yarn-
- - plastic hoop with a diameter of 65 centimeters-
- - scissors-
- - hook number 8.
First you need to make a basis for the futurePots. From knitted fabric, cut 5 strips 1.3 meters long. Then take one of the obtained threads, fold it twice. Then, thread the thread through the hoop and make a loop through which the ends of the knitted yarn should be pivoted - so it will be fixed. The remaining free ends must be tied on the opposite side. So do with all pieces of fabric. As a result, all the threads must intersect in the center of the hulaohup.
From knitwear cut the strip, the length of whichIs exactly 1 meter. Fix it to the hoop, stretch it to the center, and then tie all the central threads to it. You can start the weaving. Through the warp threads it is necessary to thrust a knitted strip from above, then from below, that is, in a staggered order. When you are finished weaving the row, pull the weave to the center. Remember that the first 5 laps must certainly weave tight. Once you do, loosen the weave threads.
When you twine on the hoop about 60 rows,It is necessary to tie a few more warp threads, otherwise the product will be loose and fragile. Therefore, knitwear should be cut 5 more strips, the length of which is 80 centimeters. Fix them in exactly the same way as the first, just a little bit the reverse: first for the weave, then for the hoop. You can continue the weaving. The number of rows will depend on the size of the future plant.
After the end of the weaving, it is necessary to untie the warp threads from the hulaohup, then bind them together in pairs in pairs. Those ends that are left, just hide in the yarn.
It remains to make a suspension for pots. To do this, hook several chains of air loops of the desired length. The ends of the obtained chains are fixed as follows: insert them between the weave by 20 rows, then tie them to the warp threads. Kashpo is ready!
