Hi! My name is Solène and I'm a knitwear designer from Paris.

My goal is to inspire you in your creative journey, to give you the means to progress in your craft and to help you create beautiful knits that you will love to wear and to make for a very long time.

You can see all my designs here on Ravelry, and follow my knitting journey on Instagram.

Stranded knitting is one of my favorite kind of knitting and my most free form of self-expression. I'm obsessed with colors, and I love playing with them to create colorful and practical knits.

I'm very excited to see your beautiful mitts!
