If you're looking for a way to organize your thoughts and feelings while bringing your ideas to life with your own hands, knitting and crochet designer Marta Porcel has the answer. According to Marta, knitting offers a moment to disconnect from your hectic routine and connect with yourself. When her first child was born, she felt the need to create her own clothing, which ultimately led her to launch Creativa Atelier, her website where she shares her patterns with knitters around the world.

In this course, learn how to knit children's garments using just two needles and a single strand of yarn. Explore the endless shape and color combinations to create adaptable designs for any age that let young ones move and play freely. Discover what you can create with your hands and design fashionable children's knitwear.

Begin by getting to know Marta Porcel, her professional background, and how she turned her passion into a career. See some of her biggest influences and how they inspire her to create her own designs.

Before you start designing your garment, go over the most common knitting materials and which ones are the best suited for your project. Then, learn basic two-needle techniques and study the anatomy of a stitch to easily recognize each type and know when to use them while knitting.

Draw a sketch of your idea based on different sources of inspiration and analyze the structure of your garment keeping age-related characteristics in mind. Find out which measurements are key to calculating the perfect size and how to convert those measurements into stitches and rows.

Now it's time to knit your kimono step by step: start with the back, continue with the sleeves, and finish with the two front pieces. Apply the concepts you've learned so far and discover the secrets to giving your garment the right shape. Marta shares some tips and tricks at each stage of the process to help you achieve professional results.

Once you've knitted all the pieces, sew them together with invisible seams along the sides and the bottom of the sleeves. Marta teaches you how to fasten off and hide loose ends and shows you how to add details and decorate your kimono to give it a unique look.
