Log in here to buy

The ’Sjóormurin’ pattern (English: seasnake) is found in many variations on the Faroese sailor sweaters. A cardigan adorned by this pattern is found on the Danish National Museum and a reconstruction of this cardigan was exhibited on the Danish War Museum as part of the 1948 uniform of a marine soldier. Here, Kirsten Fanger from Traditionel Strik has used the pattern for a soft children's sweater knitted in Pura Lana. 

The pattern is in Danish.
