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.
This jumper is named as a little village in the Madonie mountains here in Sicily. The village is located next to my town Castelbuono.
The jumper is a comfortable a bit heavy jumper - made for our thick cotton, AGRIGENTO. The pattern is a rib 4/2 displaced on every row on the body and the sleeves are made in stocking sts. It is for everyday use - and the yarns keeps well in use and washing.
Included in the pattern is a leight-weighted version of the model. And from the web site you can purchase knitting kits.
The pattern is also available in Italian, German and Danish. Please make contact if one of theese is required.
