Soft seat mat on the stool
Sometimes it is possible to make practical and useful things that will be useful to you in everyday life from a completely waste material that is sent to take-away and recycling.
For example, the accumulated deposits of failed female pantyhose and tangle are not the most beautiful yarn, the remains of projects or the dissolution of old things. All this usually lies without application or simply goes to the polls. But by including some imagination, you can get the right thing, for example, a soft rug-seat for a stool or another attribute of the hallway, balcony, or staircase.
Prepare a thick yarn or connected threads from the remnants, which we wind into large balls, tights, which will never be worn (quite suitable for this purpose and old children's tights and cut into knitwear, but stockings are preferable, since there is no cut edge, but means garbage from the circumcised thread) and the crochet hook is not less than N 5.
You can knit a circular rug or square.
Old tights expose.Cut off the leg from the top. This will look like blanks for the volume part of the rug. We start knitting with a pair of air loops of yarn. Then we put in the knitting of the tiller and start to tie it up.
After making 5-7 loops, loop the chain, and then we perform all the knitting with columns without a cloak. We knit in a circle, braiding the stocking, and not forgetting to add loops evenly as the strapping is performed, in order to get an even and dense “pancake”.
When one stocking ends, the next one is carefully "built in" the inside of the previous one and tightly grasps the working thread. The joint is completely invisible in the finished product.
Since the loops are large, then knit a mat-seat pretty quickly.
The last 1-2 rows can be done without nesting the stocking so that the round seat has a smooth edge.
The rug turns out rather plump and resiliently soft, comfortable for a seat. On the stool, if necessary, it can be fastened with a cord or braid, tied by the legs. If you do not use the remnants of yarn, but pick up bright threads by color, then the rugs will come out elegant and even with a thematic pattern, so again there is a field for hand-made fantasy.
