Olivia Children’s Cardigan Knitting Kit
Olivia has always been a favourite amongst the Purl Alpaca Design’s collections and it was only fitting we created a mini-me version too! It makes such a cute coat for a little girl to wear over a dress for best or as a jacket on a chilly spring evening over jeans and a top. The little girls version has buttons at the centre front to make it more practical but we have kept the cute lace details, both at the back and front of the cardigan.
