Bergen Knit Fest

Since 2016 we have arranged a knitting festival at our historical factory premises in Salhus, Bergen. On 27 to 29 September 2024, Salhus Tricotagefabrik will once again be filled with workshops, talks and a large yarn market. Here you will find local and independent vendors that sell yarn and knitting accessories. Welcome to the cosiest, warmest festival in Norway!
