Alimaravillas: Catalina Cardigan (Saturday)
Learn to enjoy the search for the middle ground while knitting the Catalina Cardigan. This cardigan boasts just the right amount of balance between design, structure, texture, learning and teaching. In this workshop, you will discover that less is more, that everything is much easier than it seems at first, and that by simplifying, you will reach the fullness of learning.
You will learn how to recreate the texture of the cardigan in all kinds of projects and how to easily and simply perform the necessary steps to create your own Catalina Cardigan. Through hands-on practice, Ali will tell you all about volumes, increases, decreases, invisible seams, size scaling and stitch variations. Let yourself be amazed by #FreshCrochet.
- 2 balls of Silky by Rosas Crafts in the color of your choice and a 4 mm crochet hook.
- markers, tapestry needles and scissors.
- To make the cardigan at home, you will need the balls recommended for each size. You will find all this information inside the pattern.
Basic stitches such as chain stitch, slip stitch and single crochet. You will also use hooks and variations that Ali will explain to you in order to have autonomy when facing the knowledge.
Weeks before the workshop, we will send you a dossier with the pattern and another one in which you will find a guide of notes and homework to do before and after the workshop. Ali makes sure that the pedagogy is the best way to learn.
