Blå Väktare 6727 is an early 1960's design by Ingrid Bjernefors Dahlman, the head of the Nordiska inhouse design studio for over 10 years around the 60's.

Originally a small cushion (35x37cm), Blå Väktare has now become a cushion kit of 45x45 or slightly larger, printed after the original drawing from the Nordiska Archive. 

In this kit you will receive a printed sheet of beautiful linen, ca 100cm x 50 cm which you can fold and sew into a cushion cover. If you prefer a panel to stitch, you can cut off the remaining fabric and use it for a different project with the remaining threads from the kit. 

We have found a sheet of the original colour and stitch chart and will include a full size copy of this too, but the colours will be different from the contemporary kit and you will need to decide where to add your colours using the original chart as a guide for light and dark shades. This stitch chart is very special to the Nordiska Archive as it has a complete stitch guide on the reverse. 

We will also include a stitch card and a little note about the origins of this design. 

For The Knitting and Stitching Show we have made 15 special edition kits with boxed threads, three chenille needles on a vintage pape cut, and an extra 14m linen on a thread card.
