My name is Estefanía and I am the protagonist and founder of Santa Pazienzia. I teach crochet to crocheters all over the world with my online courses and face to face workshops. I design contemporary projects for modern crocheters and above all, I like what I call XL Crochet.
In 2014, as a result of a skiing accident, I learnt to crochet by watching videos on the internet and since then I haven’t stopped. At that time it wasn’t easy to find tutorials online, so I decided to offer clear and simple explanations. My objetive? To allow anyone to be able to enjoy something as fantastic as crochet.
I’m passionate about seeing how something that I have imagined begins to take shape in my hands. It’s amazing to create something that you can wear or use, and furthermore, teach to other people.
I’ll tell you a little about myself; I am from Cadiz and I live in the mountains, but whenever I can I escape to see the sea. I come from the teaching profession so to teach is pure vocation. I’m lucky to able to combine my training with my passion and I’ve managed to accomplish something that I would never could have imagined: fill the world with new crochet lovers.
#EscociaCowlI took inspiration from Scottish tartan fabric to design the Scottish neck warmer. Making this geometric design into a crochet project has been great fun. That’s why I’m sure that you are going to love making it too. I chose the Merino Aran Natur yarn, a blend of Superwash Merino and acrylic. I think this composition is perfect for a project like this because it washes well, is soft and pleasant to work with. The technique used is Tapestry or Jacquard crochet which allows us to make patterns like this without cutting the threads. In this case the different coloured threads are concealed within the fabric whilst working the stitches so each colour can be used when necessary. The pattern explains this in detail with step by step photos as well as useful tips and advice. It also includes everything necessary to ensure that your Scottish neck warmer is flawless. You only have to worry about choosing three colours to make it happen.
