Ebook created in partnership with Carmen García de Mora.

This time we have designed 3 T-shirts and a vest inspired by the beautiful novel “Como agua para chocolate” by Laura Esquivel.

The magical realism of the story, its atmosphere, its allegories, its recipes and its fantasy captivated us so much that we wanted to share its great inspiration through four knitting patterns

KNITLIGHT V includes:

  • 3 spring T-shirt patterns and 1 vest pattern.
  • Each pattern includes between 7 and 9 sizes ranging from 80cm to 140cm chest circumference approx (if you need a larger size, you can contact us and we will scale it for you).
  • Explanatory videos so that you don’t get stuck at any time.
  • A huge amount of photographs where you can see every detail of the garment.
  • Explanation of each pattern, stitch by stitch.
  • The presentation has been carefully designed down to the most minute detail.
  • This is the Spanish version, and soon we will update the English version.
  • The link to a Telegram group where we can knit any of the patterns and share impressions as a group, both of the knitting process and of the fantastic story that inspires them.
  • The event starts on July 1, 2023 and in the meantime you can get the materials, select the colors and share them in the group if you feel like it.
  • On July 31, we will draw a raffle among all the event participants who have completed one of the four patterns and have uploaded it to ravelry, the prize will be a kit for the wonderful qualities that this ebook works.
  • The materials used in this ebook are: Summerlite 4ply, Cotton glace and Creative linen, all from ROWAN.

TITA

TITA is knitted from top to bottom, some parts in open and some parts in circular. The steps to follow to construct it are:

  1. Mount the stitches at the back, to continue knitting towards the lower part of the armhole and leave them on standby.
  2. Pick up and knit the stitches of both shoulders to continue knitting up to the armhole on the front.
  3. Joing the front and back to continue knitting the body in a circular pattern.
  4. Finish off the neckline.
  5. Knit the sleeves.

And it’s ready! Time to give it a nice “completely cuckoo” look.

Sizes SIZES

1 (2, 3, 4) (5, 6, 7) covers a chest circumference range of 80 to 140 cm.

The final measurements of the garment at the chest circumference in cm: 90 (100, 110, 120) (130, 140, 150) cm approx, to be worn with a positive ease of approx 10 cm.

Needles NEEDLES

  • 3.5 mm circular needles with 60 or 80 cm cable, or the adequate thickness to obtain the sample tension.
  • Circular needles of 3 mm with 60 cm cable, or half a mm finer than the ones we are going to knit the garment with, to pick up the collar stitches and knit the finishing.
  • 3.5 mm needles or the same thickness with which you knitted the garment to knit small circle (special short cable, five needles or magic loop needles) for the sleeves.
  • Needles of 3 mm or half a stitch smaller than the ones used to knit the garment (special short cable needles, five needles or magic loop needles) to pick up the sleeve stitches.
  • Auxiliary needle to make the crosses (optional).

Sample SAMPLE

A plain stitch:
24 stitches and 32 rows = 10 x 10 cm before blocking.
23 stitches and 32 rows = 10 x 10 cm after blocking.

Cross stitch:
25 stitches and 34 passes = 10 x 10 cm before blocking.
24 stitches and 34 rows = 10 x 10 cm after blocking.

It’s recommended that note down the measurements of the sample before and after blocking, so that we can estimate the final measurements of the garment.

PIMIENTA

PIMIENTA is knitted from the top down. Begin by assembling the back stitches. We will continue knitting the back, leaving the back stitches on standby to knit the front and continue knitting the body in plain stitch.

LUMBRE

This T-shirt is knitted from the top down, begin with a provisional assembly, and when the time comes, knit a double collar, with a wide round neckline. At the end of the neckline, almost all of the yoke’s increases will be made, to give the appearance of volume in the shoulders that can be found in the underwear of the period of our novel. Then, knit the body and finely knit the two sleeves.

  3. Separate to continue knitting front and back to the desired length.
