Knitting pattern for Alva, an Icelandic inspired cardigan. 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.
The pattern is a PDF file. Immediately after purchase you will be able to download the pattern directly from the purchase confirmation page. You will also receive an e-mail with a link to your pattern, and the pattern will be available here at the site via your personal account - so remember to create an account :-)

We deliver knitting patterns from Önling - Katrine Hannibal, a nordic knitting tale, Plummum, Spektakelstrik and Yarn Lovers digitally.

We serve customers worldwide!
Unfortunately, regulation, distances and language barriers make this a complex task, so in order to best serve all our customers we have set up 3 different web shops targeted to different countries.
Önling is based in Denmark, part of the European Union, so the main distinction is that we have to charge Danish VAT of 25% when selling to countries within the EU. Customers from countries outside of the European Union can purchase our products without paying VAT. Customers within the EU should therefore visit our EU store, whereas customers outside the EU should visit our international INT store. Both these stores are in English, so in addition to this we have a web shop in Danish for our Danish customers (who also pay VAT).
