For the inside of the tab, you need a black square that will be ¼ of the outer square. For a more convenient calculation, we recommend cutting out a square of 16 centimeters by 16 centimeters from black paper, then cutting it into 4 equal parts.

From white paper, cut out a rectangle measuring 8 centimeters by 3 centimeters, in the middle we cut out our teeth( sharp or wave).

  3. Row # 2: we dial three air lifting loops, then it is necessary to fasten in the same loop 1 column with a crochet, after which 2 air loops, and the next one is skipped. We impose 2 columns with a crochet, 2 air loops and again we pass one. Repeating this scheme, we finish the series. At the end of this series, we fasten the connecting post to the upper air loop of the lift. As a result, we have 16 columns with a crochet and 8 arches of two air loops.
  4. Series number 3: we make 4 air lifting loops, in the next column with a crochet we tie a new column with a crochet, then - 3 air loops, a column with a crochet we sew in the next column. Similarly do to the end of the series.

Lace shawl from web:

Lace from web to spider is tied with air loops, about 53 pieces.

We make a spider:

In the same loop, from which we began to tie 4 legs, we sew a connecting post.

We knit a spider's head:

We make a column without a crochet in the next 3 half-columns. Next, we unfasten 3 columns without a crochet from one loop. Then we sew a column without a crochet in the first 5 half-columns on the other side.
