From the website:

The beautiful, classic Setesdal Lusekofte, or lice jacket, emerged during the early 19th century. This garment is characterized by white ribbing and lower body, turning into black background on the upper body with white patterning. It is named “lice” for the little white stitches in the body which stand alone. A small sweater will be knitted in class, circularly, utilizing several 2-color traditional motifs. The drop shoulder armholes and the front neck will be sewn and cut. Felt or fabric will be applied to the neck and cuffs. Silver clasps and woven braid will be applied at the student’s option. Other techniques to be learned include working with a yarn in each hand, the Swiss/Norwegian purl, weaving stranded knitting, and knitting self-facings
