The alarm of your alarm rings, you emerge gently and your feet land on the still glazed tiles. This is no longer possible: it's decided, you need a comfortable lowering bed. A small mesh carpet for a trendy and cocooning touch, which will keep your feet for a few moments as on a small cloud. And double resolution: we take the opportunity to learn crochet! What could be better than a giant mesh bed drop for a touch of cocooning in the bedroom? Both trendy and very comfortable, it is also a decorative accessory that is very easy and pleasant to make. This tutorial is aimed at beginners who wish to learn crochet, as well as the more experienced who would like to discover knitting with the arms.


- 2 balls of giant Phildar wool - we chose the Phil Big and it is very nice! - 1 clothespin

Budget: around 50 euros Duration: 3 hours


1. Start by making a simple slip knot. To do this, form a loop and pass the wire inside. Tighten slightly to obtain a knot.

2. Run your hand through the loop and grab the thread. So form a new loop. This is your first stitch.

3. Repeat the operation twice with the new loop formed to obtain 3 stitches. Locate the first stitch.

4. Run your hand through the last stitch and then through the first loop. Grab the wire.

5. Pass the thread through the first loop, and slide the new loop thus formed around your wrist.

6. Grab the wire again and pass it through the two loops. You get a single loop in your hand.

7. Repeat steps 4 to 6 5 times, always going back through the first loop. To guide you, I do it once with you. In addition to the loop you are holding, run your hand through the very first loop. Then grab the wire and pass it through the first loop.

You get two loops around the wrist. Grab the thread again and pass it through the two loops to have only one around the wrist.

Now that you understand the principle, repeat step 7 four times. 8. You thus obtain a circular shape formed by 6 meshes. Mark the last stitch with the clothespin. Slightly pull on the starting thread to tighten the stitches.

Same principle for the rest but we will knit twice each stitch to enlarge the diameter of the carpet. 9. Locate the first stitch and pass your hand through the loop, on the lower / outer part. Grab the wire to form a new loop.

10. You now have two loops around the wrist. Pass the thread through these two loops to form only one. You have knitted the first stitch once.

11. Locate the hole where you just knitted your stitch. Thread the thread to get a new loop and repeat step 10. You have knitted the first stitch twice.

12. To form the carpet, we will repeat steps 9 and 10 and 11 on the 6 stitches that we created at the start, in step 8. Locate the second stitch and repeat the steps. Locate the third loop, and so on until you reach your clothespin marker. Also repeat the steps on the marked loop.

13. This gives you a slightly larger circle. Move your clothespin to mark the last stitch created: we now have 12 stitches.

14. For this new round, we will create a circle of 18 stitches. Same principle as for the previous round, except that we will knit the same stitch twice only every other time. Concretely, grab the next stitch and knit the loop twice by repeating steps 9 to 11. For the second stitch, knit it once by repeating only steps 9 to 10. The third stitch will be knitted twice (steps 9 to 11), once the fourth (step 9 to 10)… And so on until knitting the stitch with your mark.

15. Move the clothespin to your last loop. You now get a circle of 18 stitches. And you understood the principle!

16. We will continue to add 6 new stitches on each new round. For this new round, we are going to create 24 stitches by knitting one stitch out of three twice Concretely: - We knit the first stitch twice (steps 9 to 11), only once the second and third stitch (steps 9 to 10), twice the fourth… and so on. - We knit the loop with the mark and we obtain a circle of 24 stitches.

17. Knit by making new turns until you obtain the desired diameter for your carpet. For each round, add 6 stitches by distributing them. To find your way, we have: - 4th round: knit one stitch out of 4 twice to obtain a circle of 30 stitches. - 5th round: knit one stitch out of 5 twice to obtain a circle of 36 stitches. - 6th round: knit one stitch out of 6 twice to obtain a circle of 42 stitches. - and so on… We thus create a spiral.

18. We will finish the carpet with an invisible finish. To do this, run your hand through the last loop, then run two fingers behind the two sides forming the next stitch. Grab the thread and pass it completely through the two loops.

19. Pass the thread behind the two sides of the next stitch, then tuck it into the previous loop to make a false stitch.

20. Then tuck the start and end thread on the back of the carpet, wedging it in the previous stitches. And there you have it, you have created a cozy bed canopy!

By carrying out several tests, I was able to find some tips for you to have the most regular rendering possible. - If like me you tend to tangle your yarn during your knitting, prepare a large ball. This will prevent you from damaging the wool and will be more pleasant to knit. - During production, the wire tends to turn on itself. It then becomes either thinner and denser, or wider and looser. Before each stitch, turn the thread on itself so that it always looks the same from one stitch to another. - To have very regular stitches take as a reference point your wrist to determine the size of each loop. For a denser result, take as a benchmark 2 fingers for each stitch.


And There you go ! By making this small carpet very pleasant for the feet, you could (re) discover the hook. A bedstop with large stitches that will surely catch the eye of those around you. And what pride to announce to them "it was I who did it!". Prepare for your loved ones to order you ... Did you like this tutorial?
