Crochet offers us a chance to invest in conscious consumption and to do our bit in caring for the planet with long-lasting results and using natural materials. Laura Algarra, teacher and textile designer, shares her tips for crocheting unique garments that are full of color and texture in her podcast Craftivity and on her Instagram profile, which has more than 35K followers.

In this course, Laura teaches you the basics of pattern making and sizing to transform your ideas into crochet garment prototypes. Learn everything from basic stitches to how to apply them in your own designs and create patterns to share with other DIY fashion lovers.

Laura Algarra starts off the course by telling you how she found a way to express herself and unleash her creativity in the craft of crochet, then talks about her professional background and the influences that have contributed to her vivid imagination.

Have a look at the materials you need for the course and learn about the importance of understanding the crochet stitches at a more mathematical level. See what a tension sample is and why it is essential in creating a garment from scratch.

Next, move further into the design process, starting with the idea for your sketch and finishing by using your tension sample to calculate the stitches in standard measurements for crocheting the prototype.

Crochet the front piece, shaping out the armhole and continuing on to the neck and back part. Move on to the seams and the sleeves, then add some ribbed trims to your sweater.
