‘Julekuler’ authors and designers Arne Nerjordet (Norway) and Carlos Zachrisen (Sweden) came up with the idea for Norsk Husflid.

The company has 29 [Norsk Flid] Husfliden shops around Norway selling traditional artisanal handcraft items. These include knitwear accessories.

Arne & Carlos, as they are better-known, based their Constitution design on the pattern from Oppland County’s Dovre region in central Norway.

It is used on the distinctive woollen sweater/cardigan garment called a kofta, amongst other garments.

The red, white, and blue Norway flag-coloured mittens are decorated with the lion from Norway’s coat of arms.

The colours’ hues are reminiscent of, but somewhat darker than Norway’s sell-out Sochi 2014 beanie.

According to Norsk Husflid, complete packs containing the yarn, pattern, bag, and the ‘A and C’ label are available from outlets or via internet (both external links, in Norwegian only).

They are priced at 244 Norwegian kroner each (about 41 US dollars/30 euros/25 pounds sterling).
