The passionate knitter, designer and yarn fanatic behind Nostalgiknit is Katja Ottosson.

She mostly knits sweaters, socks, hats, and mittens in her classic yet playful style, and she appreciates finding that perfect woolen yarn to accompany a design.

When not knitting, Katja works as a freelance journalist, writing mostly for magazines about women, lifestyle, knitting – and generally telling stories about inspiring people. Also, she lives and works at her old folk high school north of Copenhagen, Denmark, in a house surrounded by forest and fields with her boyfriend, whom she met this exact place years ago.

You can follow Katja on Instagram under @nostalgiknit. You can also contact her directly, if you wish to ask her about one of her patterns at – or you can use the contact form below.
