Spinning Top Lapghan

Welcome to Craft For The Wolrd! The adaptation is based on keeping the pinwheel as a direct shot from the center instead of breaking the pinwheel. The tendency was to use one of the two colors using automatic long variegated wires, such as Bernat Pop and Caron Cakes. The color you see in the transition from blue to almond is actually Bernat Pop, changing color on its own! Feel free to choose the colors you want! Today we are going to learn a beautiful pattern called Spinning Top Lapghan. Cathy chose the Bernat Super Value solid color, Honey, to be the dominant look to separate the others. You can easily substitute Bernat Pop for Caron Cakes if you wish. Both choices would be fantastic! If you only do it as a hobby you can be sure that your home will have a special touch and be yours, if you do it as a gift to someone, the person will love it and last but not least, if you do it to sell… without a doubt your customers will love! In this tutorial today we will take a step by step below, you will learn how to make this beautiful and delicate Spinning Top Lapghan Blanket Crochet, following the step by step. I’m sure you will love making this beautiful blanket.

The Persian – carpet is an essential part of Persian art and culture. Carpet weaving is undoubtedly one of the most characteristic manifestations of Persian culture and art, and dates back to ancient Persia. The luxury, with which Persian carpets are associated, forms a striking contrast to their modest origins among the nomadic tribes of Persia. The rug was a necessary item to protect oneself from the harsh winter. Later, it became a means of artistic expression because of the freedom it allows, especially in the choice of bright colors and the motifs used. The secrets of weaving have been passed down from generation to generation. Craftsmen used insects, plants, roots, bark and other ingredients as a source of inspiration.

The first carpets – The art of carpet weaving has existed in Iran since ancient times, according to evidence, and in the opinion of scientists. An example of such evidence is the 2,500-year-old Pazyryk carpet produced in the Achaemenid period, around 500 B.C. A generic square placeholder image with rounded corners in a figure. The first documentary evidence for the existence of Persian carpets came from Chinese texts dating back to the Sassanid period (224 – 641). This art underwent several changes in different periods of Iranian history as it passed through the Islamic era up until the Mongol invasion of Iran. After the invasion, the art began to grow again during the reign of the Mongol dynasties of the Timurids and the Ilcanids. Over the years, the materials used to make the carpets, such as wool, silk and cotton, decompose. Because of this, archaeologists are rarely able to discover any useful traces of them in archaeological excavations. What remains from ancient times as evidence of rug weaving is no more than a few worn pieces. These fragments are of little help in recognizing the characteristics of carpet weaving from before the Seljuk period (13th and 14th centuries) in Persia.

The loom and tools – There are four types of looms: the horizontal loom, the fixed vertical loom, the Tabriz-type vertical loom, and the vertical loom of the roller beam. The horizontal loom is the most primitive of the four. Nowadays only nomads use it. It simply consists of two wooden sticks between which the wool threads are stretched lengthwise. During the work, the warp threads are kept taut thanks to stakes tied to the ends of each stick and driven into the ground. Carpets woven on horizontal looms are generally small. This loom is easily transported when the tribe moves from one place to another. The fixed loom, employed almost exclusively in minor production centers, is also a rustic model. It is a vertical structure whose bars support the ends of two round, parallel rods called “cylinders”. Between these two cylinders the weft threads are fixed. Weaving always begins at the bottom. During the work, the craftsman sits on a board that rests on the rails of the scaffolding attached to the vertical bars of the loom. As the weaving progresses, the board that serves as the seat must rise at the same time as the carpet. This type of loom is used for carpets whose length does not exceed that of the loom, which is generally three meters.
