Sicily and Tuscany are in my blood. Travelling, movies, music, and art are the things I enjoy the most. I love whales, tattoos, the sea, Africa, good food, big smiles, Picasso, ‘The Master and Margarita’, and ‘Marriage Italian Style’. I believe in Charles Darwin and in the proverbs my grandmother said.

The Double Tunisian Simple stitch is a perfect knit stitch for two-tones, in other words using two different coloured yarns, as it enhances the texture of the finished piece. As a matter of fact, the Double Tunisian Simple stitch is made up of loads of small spears that are interlaced with each other making the colour contrast even more evident in their harmonious pattern. This knit stitch is ideal for a blanket, a scarf or a beret.

We’ve chosen our Sierra yarn in the colours Gloss and Lace for the Double Tunisian Simple stitch. The outcome is a subtle yet effective ton sur ton.

Let’s get started.
