Alva is a very easy triangular shawl designed to take advantage of the marvellous colours in Rowan Kidsilk Stripe. It is aimed at complete lace novices who have not made a shawl before.

The yarn does all the magic and the only real challenge here is the lace edging which is optional, anyway.

New version of pattern uploaded March 2012 with a simplified lace edging.
