A 7th century glass bowl was found when excavating an iron age boat grave in Valsgärde in Uppland, north of Stockholm, Sweden. The bowl, probably roman, was the inspiration for the hat Frej, and the wrist warmers were derived from the hat design. The crown is knitted around so there is very little finishing on the hat, just a short seam at center back. The wrist warmers are knitted flat and seamed.
