Transcripts

1. Introduction snowflake ornament: Hey, this isn't the dosha. I am the creator, do dot and designer at Mikey do butterfly. I designed crochet patterns from beginner level, dell advanced levels. Today I bring for you are very quick and easy cousins project that is our snowflake. You can use this snowflake as a Christmas tree ornament, or it can be used as a general Christmas decoration. You can give it play in and use it as an oblique for cushions that good. So those are hacks or you can upgrade them to use them as a Christmas tree ornaments. You can try different colors for different looks or even you can try different textures like velvety on or eyelash yarn to give it a more flaky and a realistic look. Or you can embellish it with some rainstorms like I have done. Or you can even, they could read them using glitter or sequence or our boils or any other kind of beads or ribbons. It is entirely up to you. I'll show you the basic snowflake in this class and how to embellish them using the geese Ryan Stones, the drop shaped and the wrong ones. The first lesson, I'll take you through the material that you'll need in order to meet these delegates. No flux. So let's get started. 2. Material snowflake ornament : In this lesson, I'll take you through the material that you'll need to meet these non-fixed. For the snowflakes that are shown in this class. I'm using a 100 percent cotton size ten marks raised cotton thread. A crochet hook up a base you need to v When the ends, that is for the finishing of the snowflakes. Sharp pair of scissors for cutting. Some tweezers that will make it easier for you to pick up and paste the limestones. Good quality fabric glue, and do different shapes of rein stones. I'm using five MM circular ones and some drop shaped ones. It is entirely up to you. You can use any shape or color of friends stones. In the next lesson, I'll show you how to hold the hook and yarn to meet the snowflake. 3. Ways to Holding hook and yarn: In this lesson, I will show you the basics that is how to hold a crochet hook and how to hold Leon. So there are two different ways of holding a crochet hook. The first one is the Nightfall, as the name suggests in this, you hold a crochet hook, like you would hold a knife through the grip on your gluteal group, the flat part on your hook. The hook is called the grip. So your whole leg with the thumb and the index finger like this. This is the knife fold. The other one is the pencil hold. As the name suggests, you would hold a hook like a Benson. Again, you'll hold it to the grip only with your index finger like you would for a benzyl. This is a benzyl hold. If you are left-handed, you'll hold the Hogan the left hand. If you're right-handed, you will hold the hook in the right-hand. Let me show you how to hold the yarn. If you are right-handed, you'll hold it in the left. Date. Does molar end of the yarn wrap it around your little finger like this. They get under and over your index finger. And then hold it with your thumb and the middle finger. Like this. If you are left-handed, you will hold the yarn in the right hand. If you're right-handed, you'll hold the yarn and the left-hand. Let me take you to the tool Diane dire process of unmoored the yarn and wrap it around your little finger. Taking it over and under it, then under and over your index finger, and then hold it with your middle finger and your thumb. That said, there is no single way of holding the yarn. You can choose any method that does more comfortable for you. I prefer holding it this way because it makes it easier for me to maintain consent at attention in my entire grocery project. So feel free to experiment and find the method that suits you. Now let us see how to make a slipknot. Make a loop believing six or seven and just deal of yarn like this. This is the smaller end. And this is the long tail of yarn that is a dash to the boil. Now boss the long date through the loop and pull the shorter daily day to make a knot. This is a slip knot. In the next lesson, I'll show you how to do the central circle, all those snowfields. 4. Centre circle: In this lesson, I'll teach you how to meet the central circle of the snowflake. This plot. So let us start. We'll begin with a slip knot like the one that we learned in the previous lesson. If you're not familiar with that, I would advise you to go and watch the previous lesson and learn. For the Haagen-Dazs slip knot like this. And hold the yarn, will hold them not with our middle finger around the tongue like this. I will make genes the hook under and over the yarn like this. Who lived through that as your forced chain? And I'd say that again. From the front, under and over, they, they are no more volatile the loop, this is Jane Doe or one under full 10, 3, again, one more Jane, Jane for, this is the starting gene. Now this will be counted as Jane for and forth double crochet. Now we're going to count the fourth gene from the hook. This gene, the first gene that we made that will be the fourth from the hook or the First-Gen that we made. And I will be making double crochets. So daily ANOVA, the ANOVA means taking the whole front under an overlay this. Now insert the hook in the fourth gene like this. Take a yarn over, pull up a loop. Three loops on the hook. Now don't make our double crochet. We'll dig yarn over. Like this. Yarn over means from the front, under and over. Now, pull it through all of the loops. Now you have loops remaining on the hook. Repeat the process to quote like this. This is your first double crochet. Make one more yarn over, insert the Hogan. The same chain. Degree are no word or local law. You have a total of three loops on our hook. Yarn over, pull through both of the loops. Did another yarn over and pull through the remaining two. This is the second double crochet. Now like this, the remake, a total of 11 W Bush's in the same chain. You have done 12, three, and Jane counts as the fourth one. So we'll have a total of 12. So four, we have the KR nowhere. Yarn over, pull through two loops, yarn over, pull through two loops. This is the fifth one. This is the sixth double crochet. I will make six more yarn over, pull through two yarn over, pull through 27819, EGN 11. And this yarn over pull through Bu and we'll do, now we'll make a slip stitch on the top gene here. That is the fourth gen of the first four genes that we made. A slip stitch means that they are non-water pull through both the loops. That's it. This is wrong one. Now in the next lesson, I'll show you how to meet the points of the snowflakes. This is the central part. These points will learn in the next video. 5. Six points of snowflake: In this lesson, I'll show you how to mean the 6 of this snowflake that does the second round, these points. So let us get started. We'll start with a chain. Do. So let us make DU chains, chain one to do and make a double crochet at the base of this gene, not in the next stitch at the base of these do double crochet that there's a yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through two, yarn over, pull through two. Now villain me the three points. So for DAT me chain for now make a slip stitch in the fourth gene from the hook. Make sure that the genes are nice and diet. And the way that will make a very big coil in that for doing a slip stitch inside the Hogan, the stage without a yarn, a yarn over, pull through all the loops on the hook. That is the stitch as the loop on the hook. This is a slip stitch. Now make Gene 3, 1, 2, and 3. Again make a slip stitch in the same chain as the previous one. We'll call this the central gene. To make a slip stitch inside the hook without Ayana war and the chain yarn over and pull this through both the loops on the hook in one group. For lead to both the loops like this. This is again a slip stage. This is the second, again, make three chains and make one more slip stage in the same chain. Now in order to avoid the big coil, I'm going to make a slip stitch in this dual loops. Carefully see that I am inserting the hook. Make a slip stitch here to make it a little neater. Now make a double crochet in the next stitch of round one. Double crochet, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through, yarn over, pull through two. Now make blue jeans and a slip stitch in the same stage as we made double crochet. Our slip stitch is nothing. Just dig a yarn over and pull through all the stitches. Yarn over, pull through all the stages. This is a slip stitch. We make a slip stitch in the next stitch. Now make blue jeans, again, our double crochet in the same stage. Again, we'll make those three points start with fortunes. Slip stitch in the fourth Jane. Slip stitch here. Now make three genes. Again a slip stitch in the central team. Again chain three. Slip stitch in the central gene. Now make a slip stitch on the front loop of the chin and the base or the double crochet. Like this. Now make a double crochet in the next stage. Chain and a slip stitch at the base of the double crochet. Now if you find the class very fast for you all, you can always watch it at half speed so that you are able to follow it properly. Slow it down and watch it if you want to grow, share along and if you are new to crochet, we'll keep repeating the same process to make the rest of the full points. Do chains that were crochet then fortunes, slip stitch in the fourth gene. Then blue points again with three genes. And if you wondered and Biden, I'll provide the written bargain in the description. You can download it from there and follow it if you know how bushy. You can use the Biden dummy, that snowflake. Keep repeating the same thing. Each point is made with. Genes are double crochet in the same stitch. Then 14 slip stage in the fourth gene, 3 Jane's slip stitch in the central gene and the interests james slip stage in the central chain. Then a slip stitch in the front law of the chain 3 and the vertical bar of the double crochet. This can be, this step can be avoided if you want. Then again, double crochet in the next stitch, do Jains and a slip stitch that will make the point of the snowflake. Double crochet. Two chains, slip stitch and a slip stitch in the next stitch. Again do Jane's double crochet, 14's slip stitch regions, sleep state in the same chain. Again, three genes, slip stitch in the same chain, slip stitch in the frontal lobe and the vertical bar, double crochet in the next stitch of the first round, blue jeans and a slip stitch in the same stage. Now to finish, barely make a slip stitch in the first of the previous sound. That is at the base of the first of the snowflake. Now we'll just cut it off, leaving our 56 in just Dale thread. You have believed the end so that we can leave it in so that it is not Bob, Bob, when you are using the snowflake. So it is always advisable to leave a nice long tail of yarn. Now in the next lesson, I will show you how to viva in the end, that is how to finish the snowflake. 6. Weaving in ends: In this lesson, I'll show you how to weave in the ends for the snowflake. Now for weaving in the ends one by one in the middle, we will do a zed V1. So insert the needle and take it to the back of the snowflake. I'll start passing it through the stitches. Go in one direction first. For about 314 just to have four inch. Now go back in the opposite direction. Make sure that you go back skipping one state or the way the thread will come out. Now, go back again in the initial detection. So that will be given very close to the work. That's it. This is a set V1. Now I'll do the same thing with the other end of yarn as well, threaded into the needle. Again, boss it through the stages. One direction. When you are doing it at the center, you can just go around the circle one day, finish the entire circle then also it won't come off on discarded clothes to the next it. Now this is an optional step. If you want to keep your snowflake and proper shape, you can apply a starch. You can apply spray starch like this one. You can just spread liberally on bees and let it dry completely. Now in the next lesson, I will show you how to embellish the snowflake with limestones. 7. Embellishing : In this lesson, I'll show you how to embellish the snowflakes, that limestones. I'm using du dx of limestone, circular ones and drop shaped. Just take them off an A-flat container. Now in order to add these limestones to the snowflake, I'll be using the tweezer if you don't have access to it, whether you can always do it by hand. However, reasons make it a little easy because there are instruments that do small. Now start arranging that Einstein's on the snowflake force will not start gluing, will first at the end and see if we are happy with the arrangement. Once we are done, manually finalize their name and then we will just start gluing the limestones in place. I'm just placing the circular ones when I have planes and the sender and a base six at the center of the six points. Now on I'll add the drop shaped does not necessarily to follow what I am doing. You can experiment with different arrangements and see what you like most and then just glue them in place. Try not to use a normal school glue, tried to use a fabric glue so that the snowflakes are washable. You can watch them without spoiling or accidentally taking off the limestone. So it is better to use a fabric glue. Now I'm happy with this at a main site, speed the fabric glue and when by violence, keep picking up the rainstorms and I'll apply glue and start putting them in place. Tried to apply a little glue, not very less, but not too much. So that might make the snowflake messy. Apply the fabric glue on the snowflake. Dynein dot here and then displays the stone on it. That's it. Keep repeating the process for each of the nine stone. Learned applied too much glue, also don't apply to login. Try to make it as neat as possible. Once you are done with all the limestones, really just skip it for drying for our ongoing for us so that the fabric glue dries properly and grind stones are stuck. You can do find stones. Or if you want, you can add any types of beads, plastic ones or the glass ones. Also if you want, you can add sequence to it or any other type of embellishments that you like. You can also add wouldn't be, you can apply. Glitter is entirely up to you. You can experiment with different things, depends on your likes and dislikes. If you want, you can leave it like that. Don't live without any the installments or any beads. That also is going to look very nice. Keep it nice and simple. Keep repeating. I have a few more to go. Oops. Try not to make the tabletop messy if you want. You can keep rough paper or volatility to protect the surface from the fibula. Blue. Instances keep playing over it, don't worry about it. I'll pick it up later. Try to hold them religion key. If you're trying to squeeze them, they will just slip off. The reasons. Some of it, I just have one node go more. Let me check if I am done with yes. Now I'll just keep it on the side to dry for around when depolarize. And I'd say if you are done. And the next lesson, I'll give you a brief idea of what type of projects you can meet with this one, they both snowflake on. So I'll give you a class project. Before we leave. It is advisable to add a nice loop through the top of the Snowflake if you want to use it as a Christmas tree ornament, that would make it easier for you to hang it on the tree. You can see three versions here. One is a plane one. And then I have one with blue rainstorms and one with the red. You can add green. And like I just showed you, I'm going to add golden ones. Now in the next lesson, I'll give you more project ideas of what all you can do with these snowflakes. I'll see you in the next class. 8. Summary & project ideas: In this lesson, I'll give you a different project ideas that can be done with this snowflake. So here are a few versions that we did. This is the one that I'd argue in the glass. This is another one with red giant stones. I've added a loop to it so that you can use it as a Christmas tree ornament. This is another tree ornament with golden rain stones. These are the three that I have embellished. This one is a plane one, this is solved. I am not applied starch to it. This can be used as an oblique on cushion covers or on Jack caves on sweaters or On Hats. Also, you can use it on DIBL marks and gallstones, Claudio Christmas table degradation. With this, you can use these snowflakes as gift tags. You can stick them on guard stock to make Christmas cards. You're going to use these to decorate candles. You can add them to read. It's also, also if you can make multiple number of such snowflakes, you can ask them in a string and they can make a very pretty Garland for your wreath or for your Christmas tree. Don't limit yourself to the ideas that I've given you. You can experiment, use different types of texture. The ions, as I discussed before, you can use eyelash or you can use availability on, we'll give it a flaky Look. You can also use different colors, go for metallic threads. And you can experiment with different types of materials. You can experiment with different types of embellishments. You can experiment with different thickness of threads, create and do submit whatever you've made, whatever project you make in the commensal that I again, I and other students can also see what you have made using the glass. I hope you enjoyed the class. Thank you so much for watching.
