Stitch Up

Sometimes the most simple additions are the best.

There is something really beautiful about a visible stitch, whether it be decorative or a functional one that holds the piece together. The intricate detail has such a tactile quality to it, it feels inviting, homely even, rekindling memories of hand stitched goods and family heirlooms.

On the flip side, Little Dandelion plays with oversize stitching to complete the edges of her knits. Intricacy is replaced with a bulky, playful stitch which has a relaxed form that makes it somehow appear cozier and more welcoming, just like a big friendly giant! (Any Ronald Dahl fans out there?!)

Regardless of size, the beauty of a stitch lies in the fact that you can see each step of how it was made, each thread that creates the form, each segment which completes the whole.

  2. Lovely post! Have you seen the oversized stitched bean-bags we carry here at Koskela? They look really similar to the Little Dandelion blanket you have there: http://www.koskela.com.au/look-the-nest-cushion/
