Freja, the goddess of love and fertility in old Norse myth, is also known by the name Vanadis. This tam was made to match my Freja mittens, which were published in Knitty, winter bis 2011, and it has borrowed many patterns from the mittens. I’ve named it Vanadis to show that relationship – the same but still different. Vanadis is worked as a traditional Shetland tam, and is decorated with a lot of lovely heart shapes.
