Kako isplesti traku za kosu - Knitting headband tutorial





Pregledom statistike mog bloga, otkrila sam da je među najpopularnijim bio post o pletenim trakama za kosu. Iako sam taj post objavila prije nekoliko godina, još uvijek je popularan, a korisnici često pretražuju pojam "pletene trake za kosu" što ih dovede do mog bloga. E, pa da pretraga čitatelja ne bude uzaludna, potrudit ću se ukratko objasniti kako sami možete lako isplesti takve trake za kosu ili štitnike za uši. Nemam fotografije procesa izrade, jer sam to plela prije dosta vremena, no i ovako ćemo se lako snaći.




Za početak potrebno je poznavati osnove pletenja (nametanje očica na iglu, bodovi pravo i krivo, te završavanje pletiva). To će vam ujedno biti sasvim dovoljno za isplesti traku za glavu. Izaberite vunu po svojoj želji, najbolje mješavinu vune i akrila, debljine odgovarajuće za igle broj 2,5 ili 3. Klupko od 50 grama (dužina 130 - 150 m) trebalo bi biti sasvim dovoljno, no dobro će doći bilo koja vuna koju već imate kod kuće.





Na igle broj 3 nametnuti 22 petlje (širina trake bit će u tom slučaju 14 centimetara). Ako želite širu traku dodajte još petlji, ali neka ukupan broj petlji bude paran. Naravno, vrijedi i obrnuto - za užu traku smanjite broj petlji.

Traka se plete popularnim "rižinim bodom" kod kojega pletivo izgleda identično s obje strane (lice i naličje). Prvi red pletite jednu petlju pravo, a drugu petlju krivo, i tako ponavljajte do kraja reda. Okrenite pletivo i sljedeći red ponovite isti postupak pravo-krivo do kraja reda. Nastavite plesti pravo-krivo dok pletivo ne dostigne dovoljnu dužinu da traku možete omotati oko glave. Ja sam oplela 112 redova kako bih dobila dužinu oko 50 cm. To je sasvim dovoljno za bilo čiju glavu, jer se pletivo dobro rasteže i traka dobro pristaje.




Završite pletivo iglama ili kukicom i spojite krajeve. Kako bismo prekrili taj spoj, izradit ćemo trakicu kojom ćemo našu traku za glavu stisnuti u sredini i dati joj izgled turbana. Namaknuti 8 petlji na iglu i plesti bod pravo - krivo u dužini oko 15 cm. Vrpcu možete napraviti i kukicom. Dakle, kukicom broj 3 napraviti 8 lančića i bodom poluvisokih stupića heklati vrpcu dužine oko 15 cm. Možete koristiti bilo koji bod (niske, poluvisoke ili visoke stupiće), bitno je da napravite vrpcu kojom ćete stisnuti pletenu traku za kosu.




Omotajte heklanu vrpcu oko pletene trake za glavu i spojite krajeve (zakrpajte ih iglom ili kukicom).
Gotovu traku možete ukrasiti cvijetom u istoj ili nekoj drugoj boji, a najbolje je cvijet napraviti kao broš koji se po potrebi može prikačiti ili skinuti. To je sve. Ako ima nejasnoća ili kakvih pitanja, pošaljite komentare ispod posta. Bit će mi drago odgovoriti i pomoći kome je potrebno.

Amigurumi flower pot - heklani pitar sa cvijetom

Ako nemate uvjete za uzgajati pravo cvijeće, uvijek sebi možete napraviti pitar sa cvijećem kojeg ne treba zalijevati. Nije važno stoji li na suncu ili u hladu, ima li vode ili ne, cvijet će uvijek biti svjež. Napravila sam kratki foto tutorial kako napraviti ovaj pitar i cvijet, a vi naravno možete posaditi cvijet po želji. Ja sam posadila neki neidentificirani cvijet, iako mi je prva ideja bila napraviti čuvarkuću.                                                                                                                    


Nisam još napisala PDF pattern za ovaj pitar, no vjerujem da foto tutorial može biti koristan onome tko želi napraviti nešto slično. Ako imate ideju koji cvijet posaditi u heklani pitar, javite se sa svojim komentarima.



Pitar je napravljen od pamučnog konca, a koristila sam kukicu 3mm.

Crazy witch Violet - amigurumi




Ova gospođica vještica Violet prijavila se na nagradni natječaj "Fantasy Creatures" na stranici www.amigurumipatterns.net.
 Konkurencija je žestoka, no ako želite pomoći Violet da osvoji neku nagradicu, možete to učiniti putem ovog linka.


Glasači također imaju mogućnost osvojiti nagradu 
100 Must-Have Minis yarn balls by Yarn and Colors!


 Thanks and good luck to all. Možda osvojimo vunicu 



Violet's story:
  The crazy witch Violet lives in the deep forest. Like every witch, she deals with various spells and prepares magic drinks in her shelter. She often goes out of the woods on her broomstick. She is currently collecting firewood for cold winter. Although everyone thinks she is very evil and running away from her, Violet is just a little evil and crazy because she is lonely. She likes cats and birds that are her only friends. I crocheted this Crazy witch with a worsted weight yarn and a 3 mm hook. She has gray hair, purple hat, granny square scarf and laces of different colors on her boots. The stick on her broom is the twig found in the woods. The violet is 23 cm high without a hat
