Hildur Kit includes the free PDF pattern download and all the Álafosslopi needed to knit this colorful Icelandic sweater.
Designed by Lars Rains, Hildur pays tribute to the Queen of the Elves or Huldufólk, hidden people who are thought to exist alongside the Icelanders. This top-down and seamless pullover features brightly colored horizontal bands inspired by traditional Fair Isle patterns and includes gentle waist shaping to create a silhouette fit for an elfish queen. Corrugated ribbing and a rolled neckband finish off a design that is simultaneously polished, relaxed and comfortable.
