tutorial how to make a carpet with trapillo


Hello, dear readers and followers! 
Days ago I wanted to make a carpet of trapillo but  I still not had done it. So the other day I made a test and this test every time it was increasing. So what was to be a test became a tutorial on how to make a carpet with trapillo. Too bad I only have one color... Two coils of green colour that I bought here. I have no more coils of trapillo, I must make a new order to make a carpet with more colors! 
Here's my tutorial!


1 -make a magic circle, double crochet 12 times in the circle, join with slip stitch

feu un cercle màgic, 12 punts alts, unir amb un punt ras

haz un círculo mágico, 12 puntos altos, unir con un punto corredizo


2- 24 dc, two dc in each dc of previous round, 2-2-2-2 ... to end, join in a circle ss,

24 pa, dos pa en cada pa de la volta anterior, 2-2-2-2... fins al final, unir en cercle amb pr

24 pa, dos pa en cada pa de la vuelta anterior, 2-2-2-2... hasta el final, unir en círculo con pc,


3- 36 dc, 2-1-2-1-2-1 ... to end, join in a circle ss

36 pa, 2-1-2-1-2-1... fins al final, unir en cercle amb pr

36 pa, 2-1-2-1-2-1... hasta el final, unir en círculo con pc


4- chain 5 (counting as 1dc+chain2) skip a stitch, then continues:
1dc, ch2, sk 1 st… to end,  join with a slip stitch

feu 5 cadenetes (compta com 1pa+2cd) salta un punt, llavors continueu:
1punt alt, 2cadenetes, salta 1 punt... així fins al final, unir amb punt ras

haz 5 cadenetas (cuenta como 1pa+2cad) salta un punto, luego continúa:
1 punto alto, dos cadenetas, salta 1 punto... así hasta el final, unir con punto corredizo




18 holes in total...
18 forats en total...
18 agujeros en total...


 5- chain 3 (counting as a 1dc), then continues:
2dc in the hole, 1dc in the each dc of previous round…  to end, join with ss

tres cadenetes (compta com 1pa), llavors continueu:
2pa al forat, 1pa en cada pa de la volta anterior… fins al final, unir amb pr

tres cadenetas (cuenta como 1pa), luego continúa:
2pa en el agujero, 1pa en cada pa de la vuelta anterior… hasta el final, unir con pc


6-  chain 5 (counting as 1dc+chain2) skip a stitch, then continues:
1dc, ch2, sk 1 st… to end, join with a slip stitch

feu 5 cadenetes (compta com pa+2cd) salta un punt, llavors continueu:
1punt alt, 2 cadenetes, salta un punt… així fins al final, unir amb punt ras

haz 5 cadenetas (cuenta como pa+2cad) salta un punto, luego continúa:
1 punto alto, dos cadenetas, salta un punto… así hasta el final, unir con punto corredizo



7- I have not photographed this round since it I did at night.
this would be similar to the previous round but instead of chain2 between dc needed chain3. It would be this:
make chain 6 (counts as 1dc+chain3), then continues:
1dc in each dc of previous rond, chain3, skip 1 stitch…. to end, join with ss

aquesta volta no la tinc fotografiada ja que la vaig fer de nit.
seria com la volta anterior però en comptes de fer 2cad entre els pa cal fer 3cad. Seria així:
feu 6 cadenetes (compta com 1pa+3cad), llavors continueu:
1pa en cada pa de la volta anterior, 3 cadentes, salta un punt.... fins al final, unir amb pr

ésta vuelta no la tengo fotografiada puesto que la hice de noche.
sería como la vuelta anterior pero en vez de hacer 2cad entre los pa hay que hacer 3 cad. Sería así:
haz 6 cadenetas (cuenta como 1pa+3cad), luego continúa:
1pa en cada pa de la vuelta anterior, 3 cadenetas, salta un punto… hasta el final, unir con pc


8- chain 3 (counting as a 1dc), then continues:
3dc in the hole, 1dc in the each dc previous round… to end, join ss

tres cadenetes (compta com 1pa), llavors continueu:
3pa al forat, 1pa en cada pa de la volta anterior… fins al final, unir amb pr

tres cadenetas (cuenta como 1pa), luego continúa:
3pa en el agujero, 1pa en cada pa de la vuelta anterior… hasta el final, unir con pc



9- make chain6, skip 3 stitch, you insert the crochet hook in the fourth point and make ss, from now:
make chain5, skip 3stitch, ss… to end, join with ss

feu 6 cadenetes, salta 3 punts, inserta l’agulla al quart punt i feu un punt ras, a partir d'ara:
feu 5cad, salta 3p, 1pr… fins al final, unir pr

haz 6 cadenetas, salta 3 puntos, inserta la aguja en el cuarto punto y haz un punto corredizo, a partir de ahora:
haz 5cad, salta 3p, 1pc… hasta el final, unir con pc



10- in each hole make 1 single crochet, 1 half double crochet, 2 double crochet, 1 half double crochet, 1 single crochet and then 1ss inside to next hole, repeat to end, join with ss and fasten off.
I advise you  after fasten off the trapillo take off needle and thread the same color and make a stitching in to of trapillo  and so make sure not undo the carpet.

dins de cada forat feu 1punt baix, 1 punt mig alt, 2 punts alts, 1 punt mig alt, 1 punt baix i llavors 1 punt ras dins al forat següent, repetir fins al final, unir pr i assegurar el fil. 
Jo aconsello després de rematar el trapillo agafar agulla i fil del mateix color i fer unes puntades al trapillo i així assegurem que no es desfarà la catifa.

dentro de cada agujero haz 1 punto bajo, 1 punto medio alto, 2 puntos altos, 1 punto medio alto, 1 punto bajo y luego 1 punto raso dentro del agujero siguiente, repetir hasta el final, unir pc y asegurar el hilo.
Aconsejo después de rematar el trapillo coger aguja e hilo del mismo color y hacer unos puntos  al trapillo y así nos aseguramos que no se deshaga la alfombra.

_____________________________

Here is my first carpet of trapillo!
Aquí teniu la meva primera catifa de trapillo!!!
Aquí teneis mi primera alfombra de trapillo!!!


And here Carlota already has awakened ...
Look how she catch  the needle!


She always wants to touch wool and all things mom ... the coils of trapillo are great for a great time ... I think that with five minutes she would have undone all the carpet! yes... she is fast like a lightning!


I hope you enjoy this tutorial!

I admit it takes more time to make this post in making this carpet of trapillo! But I'm happy because the tutorials of trapillo  have very successful in this blog. I will to make more tutorials soon, when I have the coils of trapillo. If at any time the carpet makes waves, try to undo the stitch and work with more or less tension, 
sometimes these things happen! 

Many thanks for your sweet comments!
Many thanks for visit me in my world of wool!

Well, to celebrate this coming  St. George (in Catalonia  we celebrate the "Diada de Sant Jordi" , is the Book Day and too we celebrate the Lovers Day) I decided to do different things related to "Sant Jordi".

After I have made the heart whom you saw in the previous post 
I wanted to do more crocheted hearts  and I make four equal... 
but here in red as it should be for "Sant Jordi"!


First I just wanted to make a crocheted garland with hearts but...
 then I thought that with a base of yellow color would be very "Catalan" 
and, finally, it would be much nicer!


Since I discovered how to make a magic ring is a technique that I love!
 This is very well for the circles be perfect, right?


I wanted to put a heart in each circle but in the end I change their minds 
and did the crocheted garland that you saw today. You like it? 
I booked three hearts left over and am doing other crafts related to 
"Sant Jordi" that  I'll show you another day.


Well, this garland will be for a Giveaway for all those people who leave a comment on this post! Also leave me your email to contact you if you are the winner! You have time to leave a comment until Monday 22th at 22.00. Would you like to participate? Forward!

crocheted scarf

Now finally I can show you the scarf / cowl / stole (in the end is something  mixed all this ...) I did for a interchange with Cristina of  " no paris de cosir ". She fell in love with the scarf I made for celebrate 10,000 visits on my blog  (you can see here). And she tell me that if I  make a scarf for her. Well here it is! Today I want to presenting  you the scarf for Cristina!


And I've done lots of pictures because I have to say I love this crocheted scarf! Cristina, a little more and I take it for me! I love it! Maybe I should not say this, right...? But  I want to say: I love, looove, looooooove it!


I worked with Stylkecraft wool and crochet hook 4mm. I've been doing round and round, first width , then narrower. Cristina said he was very fond of these small balls. Well,  I make here much balls for her, very much!


And finally, for the end,  in the two bands, I did waves of crochet, for that it look  better, right? I do not know if Cristina likes this cololors ...


In the first I make a chain of one color and then the waves in crocheted in another color, what think you?


I hope you do not tire  with all photography  that I made... But I've been working three weeks with this crocheted scarf  and I do not will see it anymore ... I wanted to make me lots of photos with the scarf!


You will discover, Cristina, the scarf has a very nice tact. Maybe this year  you can not show off it, but yes the next winter!


The scarf is  very warming. And I've done with many brightly colors because you glad the dark days of winter.


By my home there was someone who also wanted to grab the crocheted scarf...


I'm very proud of this work has been a pleasure to work and think that it  was for Cristina. I waited a few more days before sending it by mail because I want this work to be the first with a label with the name of the blog ... my brand! my creation!


I hope you liked, Cristina. As soon as I have sewn label I to send you home. I'm very illusion that a piece woven or sewn by me carry the name of the blog.

For days I want to do a Giveaway and I have not organized anything ... next month will be the anniversary of the blog ... I promise that I will prepare some  things!

Thank you to stroll through the my world of wool! 

I am immensely grateful to you!

Thanks!
