# Pattern pattern of spider crochet: features and applications

The design pattern of the "spider" crochet for many years remains one of the most widespread throughout the world. It serves to produce a huge number of diverse items: from clothing and bags to pillowcases and costume jewelery.

The reason for the popularity and relevance of the pattern is that it can be easily calculated, it can be combined with other schemes, it can easily be increased or decreased, and can also be used to form vertical or horizontal openwork strips.

## Components of the pattern

On the example of the scheme, which is depicted in the following figure, it is possible to describe the formation of the main element of the spider pattern.

By its name, the ornament is due to the external similarity of the openwork part of each quadrangular element with a spider, whose paws protrude in different directions. These quadrangles can be very close to each other (as on the bottom of the diagram) or be scattered along the canvas (as in the scheme above).

The pattern of the spider pattern consists of the following components:

• Framing the pattern.
• Dense central part (spider's body).
• Chains of air loops (VP), which connect the frame with a dense center (spider's feet).

We will learn to execute this pattern.

## Crochet Pattern Pattern: The Basic Principle of Education

The framing of the pattern is most often composed of "bushes": columns with a crochet with a common base, and a variant is also used in which four columns with a cap are used. Framing is provided with steps with a shift to the right or to the left:

• I p: one step from 3SN.
• II р: two steps from 3СНН, between which there is an air loop.
• III r: the left step is shifted to the right, 3VP, the column with two overlays, 3VP, the left step is shifted to the left.
• IV p: right-hand step with shift to the right, 3VP, 3 columns without a crochet (RLS), 3vp, left stupid with a shift to the left. Further formation of the rhombus occurs with increasing distance between the steps. It is compensated by an increase in the number of RLS in the center of the element. The number of VIs in the chains is always the same.
• V p: in this example, this series is the widest, here 5SBN. Next, the pattern provides for convergence of the framing steps and a reduction in the number of RLS in the center.
• VI p: the right rung moves to the left (the first CLS knits in the last STS of the step of the previous row, the rest - in the first VP of the chain), 3VP, 3CBN, 3VP, the left step is shifted to the right.
• VII р: right step, 3ВП, column with two nakidami, 3VP, left step.
• VIII p: two steps, between them 1VP.
• IX p: one step.

## How to expand or cut a pattern

This ornament can contain more rows. If desired, knitting after the 5th row can be continued for expansion. To do this, the right-hand step should be moved to the right and the left-hand step to the left, while the left-hand step to the left, while the number of air loops in the chains remains the same (three), and the number of columns without the crochet will increase by two in each row (seven, nine, and so on). Naturally, the pattern scheme of the spider crochet will also include a larger number of rows in which the steps will move toward the center of the element.

To reduce the width of each rhombus, it is worth stopping the expansion, stopping, for example, on the 4th row. In this case, the 5th row will include the right-hand step to the left, and the left-right to the right.

## Practical knitting: a pattern of "spiders" in clothes

With the help of this ornament the craftswomen knit various summer products:

• Skirts.
• Blouses, pullovers and blouses.
• Dresses.
• Shawls, shawls, capes, pelerines.

Shawl patterned "spider" is the easiest to knit from the corner to the wide edge. In this case, the canvas will constantly expand from both sides. The addition of loops is quite simple: when moving steps in the beginning of the row, additional VPs are drawn, and at the end of the row each column with a crochet is knitted from the bottom of the previous one.
