Learn basic crochet stitches, design modern patterns, and create unique pieces

A course by Poetryarn

Mastering a traditional technique then using it to create unique and contemporary pieces is what multidisciplinary artist Ángela Cayero does through Poetryarn. The brand's mission is to bring daring pattern designs to pieces woven carefully using the tapestry technique. Ángela brings vibrant colors and bold patterns to traditional tapestry stitches, creating a unique style that combines weaving and poetry.

In this course, Ángela teaches you the ins and outs of the tapestry technique, from the basic crochet stitches and knitting instructions, to the design of patterns and how to read them correctly. Learn everything you need to know about this technique so that you can express your creativity in original pieces, such as a reversible backpack.
