If you knit in Spanish, you are a modern woman and you are eager to create your own designs, join the @luymou workshop! In this theoretical-practical workshop, you will learn the necessary basic concepts to design your own sweaters and seamless jackets.


In three hours, Lucia will teach you how to take measures, to correctly make a swatch and to calculate the required material. You will also learn to knit a universal pattern, with a front pointelle or knitted motives. Furthermore, she will tell you how to prepare the steek and then transform your sweater in a jacket. You choose. Come with a knitted swatch to Barcelona Knits and finish your sweater or jacket at home following the exclusive videos of Luymou. This Christmas, you will wear a garment completely designed by yourself!
