The Blue One (Den Blå) was designed in 1959 by Kerstin Olsson and it was recreated by Solveig Gustafsson from Solsilke in 2012. It is actually a Blue Light design in an alternative colorway. The Blue Light was designed by Kerstin Olsson in 1959. Some years later, she recreated the design using shades of turquoise and red in place of the blues shades- TURQUOISE LIGHT and RED LIGHT. The pattern charts are identical for all three versions.Blue, Turquoise, or Red Light are alternative colorways for this pattern.

Solveig Gustafsson painstakingly recreated the original and hand dyed every colour even the main colour of the body!
