February 01, 2019 1 min read

Tori Seierstad has been knitting since she was five years old. She grew up and still lives in Lillehammer, Norway, where the winters are cold and snowy, and wool is welcome.

Tori has a special love for stranded colourwork mittens, but also designs other accessories and sweaters. Her favourite knitting festival is Shetland Wool Week, where she has been several times, the last couple of years also as a tutor. She first went to Shetland for Wool Week in 2012 and can't stop going back.

Her most popular sweater is the Fair Isle inspired Next year in Lerwick, which she designed when she couldn’t go back in 2013. She has many self-published patterns on Ravelry, under the name torirot design.

Together with fellow Norwegian designers in Vottelauget (the Mitten Guild), she also published a book, Eventyrvotter (Fairy-tale Mittens), in 2015.
