Oslo Strikkefestival (Oslo Knitting Festival) is Norway's biggest community-driven, international fiber festival.

The 3-day festival is hosted at Norsk Folkemuseum (The Norwegian Museum of Cultural History)—one of the largest and oldest open-air museums in the world.

The goal of Oslo Strikkefestival is simple. We aim to promote fibre crafts the way we know them to be: modern, relevant, sustainable and always surprising.

We embrace knitters, crocheters, makers and producers who do things differently, encourage new trends, promote sustainable solutions and puts quality above all else. The festival is open to everyone—from the needle-novice to the craft-connoisseur.

Oslo Strikkefestival is about more than the weekend of the festival. It’s about people, about the environment, about our local and international makers community. We believe knitting is a craft that holds great—and often underestimated—power.

Handicrafts and community are what get our hearts racing, and Oslo Strikkefestival first started in 2015 as a passion project and dream of uniting a small group of yarnaholics. In the first year the festival it attracted close to 2000 fiber-heads in one day. Fast forward two years, over 6000 knitters from all over the world came together to nerd out about one of life's ultimate pleasures: yarn.
