Tutorial Collana Torchon ad Uncinetto (sub. English y Español)


Hello everyone, in today’s tutorial let’s make this beautiful crochet necklace it’s a torchon they have lots of beads the beauty is that you can use all the beads you like in the tutorial we see different variations today we do this together for this I played with many colors of beads and I used only one yarn for this instead I used two colors of yarn and two colors of beads in the red yarn the red beads and in the white yarn the white beads you choose to your taste choose how to match, colors, beads and yarns you can choose whether to make it a little longer or a little shorter and you can choose the type of closure I made a simple closure a crochet buttonhole and a pearl that serves as a button but if you want you can apply a metal closure we will see how to make all the pieces of the necklace and we will see how to change it to our taste if you want this part more or less big I’ll explain the tutorial how to do it watch the tutorial until the end because there will be a special thank you and now let’s start! to make the necklace we need: thin cotton (cablè n°5) beads of different sizes and shapes find the list of all the ones I used for the tutorial, in the information box scissors, 1.75mm hook a needle for threading the beads and a wool needle as you can see I used various types of beads I used the beads Rocaille 9/0 for the tubulars and in the center, in the torchon, I used all the types of beads I chose so, you can put all kinds of beads you like and mix them together first we make the tubular of the necklace we will make 2 equal for the tubular choose 2 colors of “Rocaille 9/0” beads to create these 2 spirals of beads as you have already seen in my other videos to thread the beads very small I use this type of needle it is a thin woven wire, and at the end is the eye of the needle every time we use this needle as it is done, the eye is closed when the beads pass, the eye is closed so, every time you use it open the eye with a wool needle so we can thread the yarn so we can thread the yarn the first bead that passes closes the eye of the needle for the tubular we insert the beads alternating 1 of one color and 1 of the other alternate 1/1 for each tube we insert 46 beads per color my tubulars are long, about, 11cm so, if you want the longest tube insert more 1/1 sequences of beads as always, I suggest you insert more beads than you need I too for example have entered 50 sequences, so, 50 times 1 green and 1 transparent for the tubular, start with a magic ring leave a very long initial tail of yarn 1° round: 6sc close the magic ring the processing is spiral 2° round: 1 sc with bead so, approached some beads enter the stitch with the hook extract the thread approach 1 bead and close the stitch in the tubular we will work with the beads like that 2sc without beads and repeat 1sc with the bead, 2sc without the beads as you can see, the beads remain on the reverse side of the work this is what we want because the wrong side of the tube will remain on the outside 3° round: 1inc (1sc with the bead, 1sc without the bead) 2sc without the bead 1inc (1sc with the bead, 1sc without the bead) 1sc without the bead in the last stitch of the round work 1sc with the bead the 3rd round ends with 8 stitches we work 8 stitches in every turn up to the desired length of the tube from now on, it is no longer necessary to count the rounds or stitches the only thing to know it’s knowing where to work the beads so, work 1sc in every sc of previous round 1sc with bead in the stitch before the stitch where we inserted the bead in the previous lap in the previous round, the point with the bead was this in this round, put the bead in the stitch before here so, 1sc with bead work sc without the bead up to 2 stitches before the next bead there is the bead in this stitch so, in this lap work with the bead in the previous stitch continue with this logic having the wrong side of the work outside the points are a little less visible Open the work a little to see the stitches better 1sc in each stitch for example, in the previous round we have the bead in this stitch here in this round, we work with the bead in the previous stitch so, this work with the bead continue this is the stitch that had the bead in the previous round continue in this way, 1sc at each stitch inserting the beads in the previous stitch compared to the previous lap and this is the result we get, progressing with laps the more you go on with the work and the more this scheme will be automatic however, you can verify that you are working well checking that the beads spirals are repetitive the spirals must always be the same and turn around check that you always have 8 stitches in a round sometimes having a lap so small and I had the reverse side out it can happen to skip a point so, always check that you have 8 stitches and insert the bead always in the previous stitch, compared to that of the previous lap and in every stitch we take the whole chain when you get to have about 11cm of tubular and you’ve entered 46 beads per color work an other sc and 1ss ch1 and cut the yarn when you have made the first tubular, still thread 46 beads per color, alternating 1/1 by color and make another tubular equal to the first one now let’s see how to make the central part of the necklace comes the fun part insert the beads for the central part we will do 8 strips which we will then twist together I advise you to insert, more or less the beads you need for 1 strip we can not know exactly how many beads we need so put a lot of them there is not a sequence with which to insert the beads the more you put at random and the more beautiful the result will be for the central part, we work the strips of chains and in each chain we insert some beads super simple to do we have very different beads so for large pearls we work 1 pearl in 1 chain instead when we work with small beads we can put 2 or 3 or more beads in each chain we can also decide to put the small beads in groups of the same color therefore, to foresee that in the same chain there are beads of a single color or we can mix the beads and insert them randomly into the strip these are your choices it is important that when we insert the beads to avoid damaging the yarn we move a few beads at a time if I slide the beads, I feel a lot of friction then I take less at a time in order to ruin the yarn as little as possible to thread the small beads a trick is, put the pearls in a box and pass the needle between the beads this way so in a short time many beads are inserted these beads, the chips we pass on the yarn, one at a time because they tend to scratch the yarn a lot I put around 50cm of beads each strip of the torchon must be about 26cm long surely these beads will be too much for a strip but as we know, we can insert the beads just before starting to crochet if there are some beads in the wire it does not matter, we have to do 8 strips so we use them for the next strip 😉 when we inserted all the beads needed to work the first strip remove the needle and cut the first part of the thread that, surely, will be ruined because of the beads let’s slide the beads towards the ball of yarn a little at a time and let’s start with a slip knot to work the strips you can use a 1.75mm hook, as before or if you prefer you can use the 2mm one the result will be very similar I use the 2mm one take one of the 2 tubulars and we enter with the hook in one of the stitches of the round 1 of the 8 stitches available 1ss to hook the wire to the tubular pull the thread a little to close the initial buttonhole in this way we hooked the wire to the tubular and let’s start the processing is super simple we will only work chains and each in each chain we will insert beads insert in each chain the beads you want for example, I approach 3 beads and work 1 ch 2 beads and work 1 ch let’s approach another bit of beads and continue to work in this case unlike for the rosary tutorial for example work the chains that are closer than necessary so that the beads and the stitches tend to curl continue for the chips, I approach 1 chips and work 1 chain 2beads 1ch 4beads 1ch we work randomly, as we like best and work in tight chains and we repeat everything is going to bring the beads back and forth when they accumulate near the hook we have to bring them back a few at a time and then we approach them to work them and we work the chains as tight as possible in this way, curls are formed during processing this is the result after having worked a strip of about 26cm it is not important that the strips are exactly 26cm long it is important that they are all more or less, of the same length so when I get to 26cm I stop this is what I told you working the very narrow chains smaller than the large pearl or groups of beads would require the strip is twisted, not linear this is great for the kind of result we want to have in this case when you have worked a 26cm strip take the other tubular take it from the open side where we have finished the job insert the hook into 1 of the 8 stitches from the center outwards 1ss in this way we hook the strip to the second tubular 1ch and cut the yarn the yarn tails, which we have in the tubulars hide them later this is what we get a strip hooked to the tubulars and these are the beads that have remained in the thread from those we had threaded, for the first strip now we put others on it we put about 40cm of beads to make the second strip and we repeat we work a strip and insert the beads we work a strip and insert the beads we start the strips always choosing the first available stitch on the other side instead we choose random stitches in which to attach the strip the important thing that for each strip we choose a different stitch we work 8 strips so at the end all the stitches of the 2 tubulars should have a strip this is the result when we work the 8 strips, with the beads each point of the tubular has its own strip if you want a fuller necklace in the middle a bigger necklace you can work 2 strips or each point of the tubular, or even 3 in this way you will have an even bigger necklace in the middle now let’s see how to hide all the wire tails to hide the threads choose 2 opposing threads and knots one thread is on one side and the other on the other side make 2 knots and tighten well in this way thread the knotted threads into a woolen needle and hide them in the tubular and cut repeat this way, knot the threads two by two and then hide them in the tubular with the needle when you make the knots tighten to close the tubular hole now that the wires are all hidden, we make the closure for the closure on one side we make a loop of chains and on the other we put a pearl as a button so with the long thread we held in making the magic ring at the beginning on one side we work a buttonhole take one of the tubulars this is the long thread of the magic ring enter with the hook in one of the holes on the first round go out the other side and hook the wire ch1 work the number of chains that are needed for your pearl to pass through the buttonhole i work 11ch work 1ss in the first chain before cutting the thread check that the pearl you have chosen passes through the buttonhole if the pearl passes, work 1 chain and spin the thread thread the thread in a woolen needle and hide as I show you in the video hiding the thread in this way you’re sure the buttonhole is firm thread the thread of the other tube into a needle let the thread out in the middle of the magic ring insert the pearl and fix it as I show you in the video the closure is ready I wanted to do this kind of closure but you can sew a metal closure using the initial threads of the magic rings you can sew a musket and the ring to create the torchon I use the same trick we used for the last year bracelet if you have not seen that tutorial find the link in the information box so to tangle the threads take one of the tubulars and pass it through the strips let him go to a different place every time so as to braid all the strips repeatedly pass the tubular between the strips and the torchon will be more tangled intertwine until you are satisfied, for me it’s okay and the necklace is ready! the best thing about this necklace in my opinion is the variety of beads that are there, and that the beads are randomly placed in this necklace I played with colors differently I used two-colored yarns I put the red beads in the red yarn and I put the white beads in the white yarn but we can do the opposite put the white beads in the red yarn and the other way around so with the same pattern we can play with colors and shapes to get different necklaces moreover, if you like it you can make a necklace only with the tubular you can make a tube that goes around the neck and put the closure the measures that I give you are only indicative because they depend on our hand and the yarns we use for example these 2 tubulars have been made with the same pattern, with the same number of laps and with the same hand, I made them myself however they have two different lengths because the two yarns (both cablè n°5) are of two different brands and give a slightly different result this is a yarn a little more “full”, bigger and this causes the tubular to be a little longer so, we adapt the amount of beads (in this case) and the turns, to our hand, to our yarn and to the hook we are using we have finished for today too I’m really in love with these necklaces if I did them it is thanks to one of you intact Annamaria asked me for a necklace like this she sent me a picture of a torchon necklace and asked me for a tutorial to do it I liked the project and so here we are therefore THANKS Annamaria for giving me this idea I can not wait to see your necklaces, the colors you choose and combinations I wait for your messages below the video and photos of your necklaces on my facebook page or in instragram as always, I thank you for having also seen this tutorial I hope you enjoyed it and it will be useful if you liked the video give me a like, share and subscribe to the channel I, as always, send you a big hug a kiss and see you next time CIAO!!!! 🙂
