    I found a wonderful site describing Nås dräkten.  Here’s the link:

    The descriptions are very detailed, and the photos wonderful!

    I like the variations in the apron and shawl.

    I don’t know which is cuter–the hat or the little girl!

    mnd03

    This woman’s hat is crocheted.

    Here are a couple of purses and a belt.

    I’m hoping to learn to crochet well enough to make myself a heart warmer.  As a little aside, the Swedish for heart warmer is “hjärtvärmare.”  It’s not too much of a stretch to translate “hjärt” to “heart” and “värmare” to warmer, but when I was using Google Translate for this article, the translation came out “cardiac heater!”  😉

    These gents are looking dapper in the suede knickers and wool vests.

    Here’s a closeup of the back of the man’s vest.  I love how the fabric is cut on the bias and the stripes matched.

    Too bad these beautiful suspenders are usually hidden under the vest.

    mnd07

    The men have a green wool jacket with beautifully crocheted sleeves.

    But I’ve saved the best for last–these adorable children’s “dresses” worn by both boys and girls.  The “bib” is reversible–sounds like a good idea!
