Knitted pattern "Underwater life"

Bright knitted composition on the marine theme. This picture will give a charge of positive, sunny mood and fill the life of each of us with the atmosphere of summer. Now the memories of the sea and the beach will begin to emerge not only in your memory, but also in your room.

To recreate a piece of marine fauna and flora is not a difficult task, because you can literally learn the basics of crocheting in just a few hours. And it will take quite a bit of material for such a picture:

• 6-7 small multi-colored balls of fine yarn (the presence of green threads is a prerequisite, the rest of the yarn can be chosen arbitrarily);

• thin crochet hook (1.4-1.6 mm);

• any wooden frame 15X21 cm (you can take a frame from an unnecessary picture);

• green, blue or turquoise elastic fabric (better stretch);

• a sheet of thick cardboard;

• plasticine;

• sewing needle with a large eye.

We knit all marine life from yarn. We use fabric once to create a background contrast, otherwise we constantly work with a crochet.

First we knit fish. We collect 2-3 air loops (v. P), combine the chain into a ring and knit up to 5 circular rows with single crochet (st. / B. N).

The goldfish has a fluffy tail, so part of the circle must be lengthened in straight rows (it is enough to double knit st / b.n 2-3 loops) and tie 3 chains of 14 in each section. P.

We already knit the fins with double crochet, gradually increasing their number (4 columns with a uniform increase: a column with 1 crochet, then with 2, 3, etc.).

For another fish (scalar), such fins are already made on both sides (opposite each other).

Then we form fish eyes with a needle with black or white thread.

We make algae and corals from chains that we knit all the same art. / B. n, where only the tips of green marine plants are expanding due to the addition of additional yarn in 5-6 columns from above.

A starfish, in principle, can also be crocheted, but for a more interesting design it is better to make it a different structure - a little more voluminous, embossed or from more dense threads. You can also place several natural objects - stick shells, kreplets, dried seahorses and other marine life.

Plasticine is used in this composition, which became the basis for creating the star.

We simply wrapped this star with thread and decorated it with beads.

If all the details can easily be sewn to the fabric, then the star will have to be glued to the polymer (preferably waterproof and thick) glue.

All knitted elements of this pattern should be located in the center, sewn to the fabric with the same yarn that each of them was knitted.

At the end, we carefully pull the finished image onto cardboard and sew all sides of the fabric from the wrong side to each other.

It remains to put a bright picture into the frame and enjoy this “knitted” work of art on cold winter evenings.
