Hook gloxinia

Houseplants have a special place in every home. They help to be closer to nature and are the second breath of any room. But what if your favorite flowers simply refuse to grow in your living conditions or require unrealistically difficult care?
In fact, there is always a way out and his name is needlework. Already for many it is not unusual to see artificial plants. Many families with children with allergies have discovered such a miracle as crocheted flowers in pots. And it is beautiful! After all, such a plant can conquer even avid connoisseurs of wildlife!

To create such a flower will require not only yarn and a hook, but also 2-3 hours of your time, diligence, desire, as well as knowledge of the basic principles of crochet.
Let's start? To knit room gloxinia, we will prepare red and green yarns, plus some white and yellow threads for trimming, and also a hook of 2.0 mm.

From the yarn intended for the flower (it can be not only red), we collect 4 air loops (c. P) and knit 4 rows with a single crochet (Art./bn).

Then, stitch this blank along the cut and attach it from above, then apply a white finish.
The leaves of the gloxinia are even and narrow (without embossed elements or teeth along the edges), from which they are easily knitted. Recruit 30 in. n and we tie this chain from all sides of the st. / b. n

The sides of the leaf should be greatly increased (3-4 gains per loop) so that its shape does not resemble a saucer.

After the sheet acquires the desired width (2-3 cm), apply light green streaks to its surface with a needle and thread.
