Skalva

Skalva is available to purchase as an individual pattern for $7.00 from Twist Collective

Skalva
One of my favorite things to wear when the weather turns cool is a long sweater over jeans or leggings. Skalva, which in Scottish means snow falling in large flakes, is knit seamlessly from the bottom up and features set-in pockets at the perfect height for a little hand warming. The tucks at the neck and cuffs add a wee bit of girly playfulness that is most necessary in the winter!
