Igne Oyasi Tutorial


 So heres another tutorial, this time for Igne oyasi.  A simple yet pretty edging, easy enough to accomplish if you know the basics of oya.  This tutorial is step by step, any questions are welcome.

Once again I have taken the time to take these pictures, and explain what I'm doing for your benefit.  Please, link back to my profile if you in some way choose to post this tutorial on your website.  Its only fair!

Anyway on with the tutorial...
This is what we will be making today.

You will need:  2 colours nylon/polyester thread, a lighter, scissors and a sewing needle.

Make 2 zurafa (loops)

Going back on the 2nd loop make a knot

Make 4 pirpir (long loops)

Continue making zurafa (loops) 5 in total.

Going back on the 5th loop make a knot and repeat making 4 pirpir (long loops)
the above steps are repeated for the length desired.

With the 2nd colour make 3 zurafa (loops) over the 4 pirpir (long loops)

going back, knot in the 1st loop.

make 1 pirpir (long loop) in the same space

continuing forward make 2 zurafa (loops) over the 3 zurafa (loops) below.
you have now decreased. Well done haha.

Going back, make 1 pirpir (long loop) in the same space.

make 1 zurafa (loop) go back in that 1 zurafa (loop) and make 1 pirpir (long loop) in the same loop.

Make another pirpir (long loop) in the same space.

leaving a small amount of thread (enough so it doesn't distort) bridge to the 1st pirpir (long loop) on the row below
and make a knot and repeat the above steps again.

At the end cut your threads and burn them, I burn them so they dont unravel, but sometimes they leave black burnt bits but its up to you i suppose.

And so this is the tutorial!  Thanks for reading! x

Of course it was. I've already made some earrings using this pattern, maybe a little bit modified. I wonder how long it takes me to learn making such even loops.
