practices with trapillo

It had been many days that I wanted to buy trapillo and finally, I have trapillo!
The other day, Friday, the postman came to home and I was not ,
I have had to wait until today Monday. I bring all weekend to think trapillo!

When I opened the carton I found eight skeins of trapillo and a needle of 10mm.
In the first moment I thought that maybe the needle was too small and maybe
I should have bought a 15mm needle ...

... but it is an ideal needle for me! And I like, it is a wooden needle...
 I wanted other colors but they did not have in stock ...
But mainly I wanted to do things red for Christmas ...
The trapillo are strips of cotton from debris. They can be purchased
in rolls of 1 kilo approx. or make your own with old shirts that
you no longer use... Well, just wanted to try and manipulate the needle and
I ended up making a small basket. And all this in half an hour or so!

I'll make my first tutorial ... you do watch, be careful ... just in case, eh?
Tutorial ( I hope not mistakes!):
1- chain 6, join the ring
2- 12 double crochet (dc), join the ring
3- 24 double crochet, (two dc in each dc), join the ring
4- 36 double crochet, (two dc, one dc, two dc, one dc...  you understand? repeat until the end), join the ring
5- one chain and 36 points single crochet (sc), no more increases from now.
6- repeat back as many times as you want the fifth round ( the last photo I had up to four rounds of 36 sc )

It was the first time I worked with trapillo and I just loved it.
I worked very quickly! Although I have to do more  force the fingers and arms
and get tired more ... but it's great!

I like the single crochet on the side ...

The base has not been very well ... I just wanted to test the trapillo,
maybe I will undo all this , was just a practice!
I've discovered a new internet shop:
They have trapillo, washi tape, stamps, many things!
And I am very pleased with this purchase. Each skein of trapillo weighs 900 grams,
I love it so great! And it is very easy to handle and weaving.
I love it! I love it!
Get ready ... the trapillo has come to my world of wool, and with intensity!

I encourage you  to work with trapillo, I can assure you that you will love!
Many thanks for visit me on my world of wool, sewing future, of trapillo...

  8. hola guapa! tengo una duda xk me hago un poco de lio: son 12 puntos y luego cadeneta? xk claro... cuando dejo de dar vuelta me quda como torcido, no sé si me explico :S


    1. Hola, Sandra!
      Gracias por visitar mi mundo de lana!
      Si quieres el tuto mejor explicado visita mi otro post "cómo hacer cesto trapillo", allí quizás lo entiendas mejor puesto que éste fué mi primer cesto... cuando trabajas con punto bajo tienes que hacer una cadeneta al principio de cada vuelta.... no sé si me explico... tu haces los 12 puntos, unes con un punto raso, haz una cadeneta y luego 24 puntos bajos, unes con un punto raso, haz una cadeneta y luego 36 pb... mejor así?
      Espero que te sirva...
      De nuevo, gracias por pasearte lor aquí!
      Me alegro de saludarte!
