Hønsestrikk

Hønsestrikk, or hen knitting, is a type of narrative feminist knitting that emerged in Denmark during the 1970s. Knitters created sweaters using bright colors, unconventional techniques, and imagery with narratives about the person intending to wear it. Hønsestrikk is still executed by knitters today, incorporating contemporary political and social issues.
