I just love the look of these sweaters and cardigans! I have not been able to find out if the design is inspired by Kikut in the woods outside Oslo, but I think it is.
Kikut is a tourist cabin where a lot of city people go hiking to on weekends. It is very close to Oslo. It is in the wood area called Nordmarka, and for over a 100 years this place have been very popular for skiers and hikers. Here you can get coffee and waffles, and even spend the night if you like.
So I would think that this pattern is based on the look the visitors had coming to Kikut in the 60s
Here is the pattern: kikut-garnmannen
