When you buy a pattern from the online shop of El Atelier de Valena, you are acquiring a digital publication with the instructions necessary to knit the garment and information on the materials (wool and pearl) and needles used to make it. The measurements of the model are also provided, indicated in a simple diagram of the garment.
In addition, the instructions indicate the size of the garment (newborn, 0 to 2 months, etc.) and the degree of difficulty posed by the design (easy, intermediate or advanced). Also included is the “tension” or “gauge” with the number of stitches and rows, worked in one of the stitches used in the pattern. We recommend that you begin by working the sample swatch (with the wool thickness, needle size and number of stitches and rows indicated) to ensure that your knitting matches the measurements given for the swatch. Otherwise, you should work the swatch again, adjusting the needle size. This will ensure that the tension of the knitting is adequate to work the garment with dimensions as close as possible to those given in the pattern.
