This pattern is inspired by Gotland, Sweden ́s largest Island, occupied since prehistory and home to the Gotland pony called “Gotlands Russ”. Wild horses have lived in the forest regions of the island of Gotland from time immemorial.

The Nordic people have been knitting mittens for centuries, the earliest sign of knitting dates back to the 13th century. 

Åse and Ted Öjbro are passionate about keeping the traditional art of jacquard knitting alive. Their striking designs are steeped in tradition, folklore and history.
