The Story Behind The Fästfolk Design (From Åse Öjbro) 

An engagement is a confession that a relationship is heading towards marriage or a registered partnership. When the couple has engaged, the couple often begins being called fiancés. These couples were often called “Fästfolk” in Sweden. 

In this pattern, the designer wanted to honor the ambiguity and capture the wonderful feeling of being two.
"When you love, give everything you have. And when you reach the limit, give even more, and forget how hurt it is.
In the end, only the love you have given and received is counted.
Your partner has chosen to share his life with you, you give your days to each other.
I dedicate this pattern to all current and future couples.
