Crochet Cardigan: Natalia Cardigan

I bring you my new design: the Natalia Cardigan. A crochet cardigan made with the Side to Side technique.


I’m going to tell you all about this pattern, but first I invite you to share this post on your social networks so that more people can make it.

What is the inspiration behind this design?

Surely when you saw the pictures you thought it was knitted, but no, it’s Crochet.


I have spent months working on this design, taking care of every detail so that the final result was great, and I don’t know what you think about it, but I am very proud of it.


I have been inspired by my mother: Natalia, to create this design.  I have a flashback from when I was a child, and that is seeing my mother wearing a black cardigan. She has always been someone who likes to be warm, but comfortable, and I got that from her.


This Cardigan represents a little of what my mother is to me: my roots. She is the one who has always taught me to help others, to be supportive, empathic, by example. But the most important thing is that she is always ready to help and support me in any situation.


This design is dedicated to my mother, I hope to enjoy her company for many years to come.
