When we sat down to create the Arendal brand some years ago, we wanted to share some of our typical Norwegian traditional cultures with the world. The classic wooden mountain cabins, the nights in tents under an open northern light sky, the beautiful and diverse scenery of nature, but one of the first elements that was created after the logo itself, was the knitting pattern. There was a plan to have sweaters, hats and jackets made out of it, to use in exhibitions and interviews for instance, just to point out to the world how quirky and cozy us Norwegians actually are, I suppose.
Now, Jan’s mother has spent the entire winter in front of the fireplace knitting hats of different kinds for us, as you can see in these pictures, but we also thought it would be fun to see what all of you (or your mothers and girlfriends) were able to create with it. In the link below you can download a pdf with the pattern used for the hats, so we encourage you to give it a try, or translate it to whatever thing you fancy to knit! And please, do send your piece of art to us and post it on our social media channels, maybe we’ll have a treat for you… 🙂
