The authentic Dale of Norway look! The Setesdal design evokes history and memories; it is the most recognized Norwegian pattern and has been knitted for generations. This is the original design that started the Norwegian sweater category. The small v-shaped dots are known as the “lusekofta” (lice pattern), while the crosses were believed to protect from evil spirits. Details include authentic pewter clasps and an embroidered band that is identical to the original design that has been used for centuries, all made in Norway. This is a unisex style cardigan. If purchasing for a female, we suggest going down a size for optimum fit.
