The dedicated knitter, designer, and yarn enthusiast behind Nostalgiknit is Katja Ottosson. Katja has published knitting patterns for over 10 years and loves developing creative and intriguing patterns for everybody to join in. Her style is usually playful and elegant, and always with an added modern twist. Katja has a Master in Journalism, and she is super passionate about writing clear and easy to understand knitting patterns, even for novice knitters.
When not knitting, Katja writes profile pieces, historical articles, or magazine features, or she is taking a walk in the forests around the old folk high school that she and her boyfriend lives and works by – and where they also met years ago. In their house also live cats Baldur and My.
