As winter is already upon us, this time we want to share with you a beautiful craft: A crochet coat for winter. Do not miss any detail and start making it now.
Materials you will need:
- A hexagonal pattern.
- A crochet needle.
- A ball of wool.
one.- To make this jacket we must have previously elaborated two hexagons on which we are going to work. Then, it only remains to fold them in half each one and join them on the sides; so that our coat is already outlining.
two.- Once the jacket is outlined, we proceed to sew joining both sides of the original hexagons with crochet stitch by stitch what would be the back. For now, it will remain as if it were the other way around, that is; the joints will be very marked.
3. Take a strand from one of the hexagons and another from the other and do it as if you were making single crochets (you can do it with single crochets or slip stitches), but this time it will be done with single crochets so that it is more noticeable. .
4.- We have to turn the work thus sewn to do the wrong side so that we don’t have all the disarranged fabric on the outside.
5.- Now our coat has begun to take shape and now we have to sew the upper part from end to end to the corner that is going to make the flap. You can sew it like we do with the crochet hook making single crochets, it can also be done with slip stitches.}
6.- We now proceed in the same way with the other side until we have already defined both flaps and the sleeves.
7.- In this way we already have all our hexagons made and sewn. Now what we have to do to make our jacket grow is to weave what is all around and we begin to turn it over and weave all the rows that we need. We are going to try them on and the rows that we need are the ones that we are going to weave.
In our model, we need 5 but it all depends on how long and wide you want the coat.
8.- Now, in the corners of the coat, we are going to make 1 double crochet, 3 chains and we start to make 3 double crochets in the center and we go to the next hole and we make 3 double crochets, a chain and we go to the next hole where again we make 3 high stitches and this is how we grow the coat as many turns as we need.
9.- So we come to our corner of the coat and here we have to do in this corner three double stitches, three seams and three double stitches. We continue knitting all the way around the back until we reach the other corner, which is also three double stitches, three seams, 3 double stitches.
10.- We continue with that pattern until the end and then all we have to do is three double stitches. And so we go around the jacket until we get the measure we need and we finish with a single double crochet.
eleven.- For the sleeves, the first thing we are going to do is three seams and then groups of double crochets, we make a chain and then another group of stitches and join with a slip stitch.
12.- We continue making it grow with 3 chains, groups of 3 double crochets in the two sleeves exactly the same and we already have our jacket.
13.- All we have to do is hem the neck with single crochets. We start from a corner and make a knot and start making a chain look and single crochet. We pass the next stitch and make two stitches at each stitch.
14.- We go like this to the next corner of the neck and we make two single crochet again, we continue after the next with another single crochet, and thus in each little hole that we will reach we will make two single crochet.
fifteen.- We continue with that pattern and we are already making 2 single crochet as we get holes and we continue like this until the end of our neck. Finally, we cut the thread, finish off and we have our coat.
