First we will discuss knitting motifs, and then assembling the fabric. The classic Irish rose is knitted according to the pattern:

We knit roses in several sizes. You can also tie mini roses - six rows according to the pattern. Rose petals are tied with Tulip yarn in crab stitch. Image of roses and leaves in the photo.

Irish lace motifs

We knit the leaves according to the master class in the photo and immediately connect them into branches.

Branches with two and three leaves are very successful in layout.

To fill large fabrics, we knit long branches of 4-5 leaves.

Sequence of knitting a twig:

Irish leaf

The branches are tied with Tulip yarn as follows: a connecting post, an air loop, etc. In the process of tying, we wrap the veins of the leaf in a lush column.

The wrapping column technique step by step in the photo:

We perform small motifs according to the scheme:

Small circles are 16 double crochets in a circle.

We begin tying the small motifs with Camellia yarn in the same way as the leaves.

Knot technique:

Long “antennae” 15-20 cm. we knit on a bourdon or on a chain of air loops.

Bourdon in Irish lace is 3-4 threads folded together, which replace a chain of air loops.

Motifs associated with the use of bourdon are more voluminous and hold their shape well.

A 4-strand burdon made from Sarmasik yarn is knitted in single crochets with Tulip yarn.

It's time for the pattern.

We create a pattern according to individual sizes in full size.

It is recommended to make it from thick fabric.

We lay a decorative cord along the contour of the neckline, shelves, hem and sleeves, knitted according to the pattern:

Next, we proceed to placing the motifs on the pattern with the wrong side up.

The motifs are sewn to the fabric or secured with head pins to a tablet/tight pad or foam/.

We sew together the touching elements.

The rest of the connection is an irregular mesh. It is knitted using Canarias yarn and a 0.75mm Clover hook.

After assembling the main canvases, we move on to the final work - SEAMS.

First we sew the fabric pattern.

We tie together small motifs and branches and arrange them in the empty spaces.

We finish the work with an irregular mesh. The first stage is to sew in the sleeve. Only then do the side seams.

To work the sleeve seam, you can use a narrow strip of foam, foam rubber, or a tightly rolled towel.

Sew on the buttons.

The loops are the cells of the decorative cord.

Decorate with pearl beads or seed beads.
