My name is Dorte Moller Rasmussen and I am Danish by birth but I am in love with Sicily and have been living in this wonderful place since 2010. Living here gives me inspiration for my work as knitwear designer and cooking Mediterranean food.
Designing knitwear I am bearing in mind the principles of dressmaking - because in my openion it is important with a good fit for our garments - knitted as well as sewed.
As mentioned I am also a cook but also a horse woman.
Please visit my website www.domoras.com for more patterns, knitting kits and yarn - among other things.
