*Please select a Language

Selja (a Finnish word for ’elder’) is worked from top to bottom as one piece. It is knitted with two strands of yarn held together in garter stitch, which means that every other round is a knit round and every alternate round is a purl round.

Selja has an identical front and back, so you can wear it whichever way you want. It is a quick and uncomplicated knit – easy enough for beginners and enjoyable for more experienced knitters. The stretchy garter stitch sweater is pinned to measurements at the end, so don’t be alarmed even if it seems too short right off the needles.

This pattern is a digital download. After purchase, you will be given a unique link to download the pattern to your computer, phone or tablet. Due to the nature of PDF downloads, we do not offer refunds on digital purchases.
