Åse Öjbro took inspiration for the intricate Ester design from a traditional folk dance. Ted, the other half of the talented duo, just had to work out how to knit this complex and detailed pattern and then create the mittens - as always they are a triumph!
The charming Ester design is inspired by the folk song “the virgin is dancing with red “gull” ribbons” - "gull” is an old expression for sweetheart and is often found in traditional Scandinavian songs. Well now you know!
