Öjbro Vantfabrik Ringdans Mittens
Öjbro Vantfabrik is a Swedish design company with a passion for passing on Nordic knitting traditions. Swedish design with a storytelling soul rooted in their cultural heritage - and every pattern has a story. We love that!!
The mittens are constructed of 4 layers and they are seriously the warmest cosiest mittens you will have ever put your hands in. They are perfect for those super cold days in the Southern and inland parts of Australia ...definitely not recommended in Queensland :)
This design is inspired by the Swedish song "The maiden in the ring" written by Hugo Alvin one of Sweden's most prominent romantic composers. This song is always sung at Christmas while dancing around the Christmas tree, one of my most favourite memories of living in Sweden! Designer Åse Öjbro has created this pattern showing high step dancers and was inspired from her memories of dancing around the Christmas tree with all of her family when she was a child. She wanted to be able to share this warm memory through her knitting.
