Today I will explain step by step how to tie this pretty coaster in the shape of a heart. Either you beautify your living room table with it or you give it away to your loved ones, for example on Valentine's Day. We also have many other gift ideas in ours Valentine's Day Gift Guide put together which you here. place.
For a coaster you need:
Now cut your yarn first. You need 17 threads with a length of 1,20 m each.
Now take your staff and knot the first thread with the inverted anchor knot stuck to it. To do this, halve your yarn, put the loop around the rod from front to back once from above. Then you pull the two threads from the front through the loop and pull the knot tight. So you attach another 15 threads to the rod. First put the last remaining thread aside.
You now have 32 threads. You take the four threads in the middle and push the others aside. With these you now knot the Square knot: take the right thread and pull it under the middle two threads and over the right thread over it. Then you take the left thread, place it over the two middle threads through the loop under the right thread and pull the knot tight. Now do the same thing reversed: take the left thread, place it under the two middle threads and over the right thread. Then you take the right thread, put it over the two middle threads and over the left thread through the resulting loop and pull the knot tight. Now you have the first square knot.
Add the two threads next to it. Now connect the two threads on the left with the two threads on the right with the square knot.
Now the same on the right. Connect the two threads on the right with the two threads on the left with the square knot.
So you move first to the left and then to the right with all threads.
Next you connect the two rows by taking the four threads in the middle and tying them with a square knot.
Do this again and again until you have five rows on each side. So that the heart gets its round shape, you have to leave out the last square knot on the penultimate row and the last two square knots on each side of the last row.
Now you cut the loops with which the thread is attached to the rod and take the thread that you set aside at the beginning. This is now tied all around to define the heart shape. To do this, place it on the yarn at a point below the last square knot and glue the end (approx. 3 cm is sufficient). So that the heart does not slip when you knot it, it is best to simply stick it to another point on the base with adhesive tape.
The “new” thread is now your guide and the ends of the thread are the working threads. Each working thread will now start with the double half blow tied to the guideline. To do this, take the thread to the left, lead it around the front over the guide to the back through the loop that has been created and pull it tight. When doing the half stroke, you have to make sure that you don't pull tight at both ends at the same time, but keep the guide horizontal and tighten the working thread on it. Then you knot the same knot again with the same thread (therefore DOUBLE half knot). The knot should line up nicely next to the first knot as you tighten it. Now continue with all the other yarn ends until you are completely around the heart.
Now cut all the yarn ends to the same length, comb them out with a comb and your DIY heart coaster is ready!
Have fun knotting!
