Alva means elfin in Icelandic, and is also the name of this beautiful, long cardigan with Icelandic inspired patterns, scattered with purl stitches to add structure. The cardigan can be used as a transitional outdoor jacket for spring and fall, and indoors in the winter. The cardigan can be decorated with pretty buttons coated with Liberty fabric to add a feminine finishing touch.
Alva is made in Highland Wool and Jensen Yarn, which gives a lovely, rustic cardigan that will last for years.
