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.

Today, we’re going to learn how to do the Satin stitch, a traditional and timeless stitch in its simplest form. The stitches in today’s case, which are crocheted, are so close to each other giving the final structure a solid texture. This type of knitting is suitable for any type of project, we find it particularly suitable for projects that need a bit of stiffness like a purse, pot holders or perhaps even a patchwork summer quilt.

For the Satin stitch we’ve chosen a pure cotton summer yarn. Cool, shiny and super easy to work with, Lincoln! In the collection there are 10 colours which make up a minimal yet complete colour palette. We’ve made our wool cape with the colour Moss.
