When an Elfin princess takes a holiday from fighting the forces of evil she might throw on this comfy cardigan to go shopping and grab a latté. Made in only three pieces, Arwen features reversible cabled panels that are cleverly grafted together at the top of the hood and at the sleeve seams to form a continuous band. Folded back, they become cuffs and a collar. This little jacket is meant to be comfortable and easy to wear, so choose a soft yarn and make a size larger to allow for some wiggle room.
