Katia Designer Awards
Do you remember a few months back when we launched the first Katia Designer Awards contest? The level of participation was a huge success! The winning model of this first edition has been published in our Katia Easy Knits magazine. We present this beautiful jacket which has been designed and made by Elena Rodríguez using Azteca Milrayas and Maxi Merino. We invite you to download the free pattern of this interesting design that combines the simplicity of garter stitch with the charm of granny squares. There’s no doubt that this is a perfect garment to learn a basic knitting stitch as well as a versatile crochet technique. Congratulations once again to Elena!
