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.

We’re going to learn how to knit the Snowdrop stitch together today. This is an openwork stitch which has been created with Hokusai, one of our most exquisite and softest yarns in our collection. Here it is in the Sunset colour. In alpaca and viscose it’s got an irresistible shininess!

The Snowdrop stitch is an openwork one and we think it’s perfect for making a nice jumper to wear mid-season. Just like the flower that’s one of the first to bud mid-winter and keeps blossoming into the springtime. You’ll be blooming too, with beauty that’s dainty and long lasting, thanks to this knit stitch together with our Hokusai.

Ready? Let’s go!
