Knitting pattern for Easy Peasy asymmetric shawl by Inge-Lis Holst and Katrine Hannibal
Easy Peasy is Önling's collection of basic patterns in Nordic design, written in a simple and beginner-friendly language - without abbreviations. We have designed the prettiest, softest and lightest asymmetrical shawl, simple and easy to knit. This design is a small, light shawl you can use to keep your neck warm, when a large shawl is too hot and too overwhelming. It is asymmetric and features the prettiest edges and a simple eyelet pattern that will catch the eye when you wear it. You can make it in one color or with stripes; it will be the perfect addition to your basic wardrobe. We have worked it in one of our most popular yarns, Önling No 2, made from sustainably manufactured Merino wool by a small family-operated manufacturer in Northern Italy, at the foot of the Italian alps.
Designed by Inge-Lis Holst and Katrine Hannibal
Length approx.: 240 cm
Height approx.: 50 cm where widest
Materials: 150 g Önling No 2, 100% Merino Superfine Super 100s Wool, 25 g = approximately 120m
Suggested needles: Circl ndls 4,5 mm, 60 or 80 cm
Gauge: 20 sts and 40 rows (20 ridges)in garter stitch on ndl 4,5 mm = 10 x 10 cm
The shawl is worked back and forth in garter stitch ridges with a simple eyelet row to break the garter stitch pattern and add symmetry to the asymmetric design. The asymmetric shape appears by increasing in all rows and decreasing on every second row. The pretty edges frame the shawl nicely.
You may also want to make a stripy shawl, or work less or more eyelet rows, and you can use other materials as e.g. Önling No 1 or Silk Mohair Önling No 10 - and you can make the shawl larger or smaller, as you prefer.

Wool can last for years, but it requires good care. Washing is tough on your woolen garments and in general wool needs to be washed much less than other materials as it has a self-cleaning effect.

Wool can last for years, but it requires good care. Washing is tough on your woolen garments and in general wool needs to be washed much less than other materials as it has a self-cleaning effect. Often it is enough to hang your woolen sweater / garment outside in the humid weather or bring it with you into the bathroom, when you take a long, hot shower - the steam will often be enough to freshen it up it and remove any unwanted odors.
Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Everyday Kit
Neither Önling No 12 nor No 13, is pre-washed when you receive it on cones. You get the best result if you soak your finished knitted garment in lukewarm water for approx. 2 hours. Then wash the garment as you would otherwise with washing detergent for wool, either by hand or on a wool program in your washing machine. Dry it by laying it flat.
Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Silk kit
As the Silk Kit from Önling contains 3 different qualities (linen, wool and silk), we recommend that you always wash your silk sweater / garment by hand, to avoid it changing shape or appearance during wash. The three qualities will react differently to water, temperatures, etc. Önling can not take responsibility for the result if you wash your silk sweater in the washing machine. Your garment made from the silk kit should NOT be spun or tumble dried. Instead, dry it by laying it flat.
Why choose Önling?
It is our ambition to design your favorite knitwear, with a classic, versatile expression to make you feel smart and comfortable. Önling means favorite in Danish - so we take this ambition quite seriously, as we named our company after it.
We sell yarn under our own label - yarn that is produced in a family-run yarn mill in Italy. The yarn is produced according to organic standards and can be traced back to the individual sheep on the specific field, to ensure the welfare of the animals. All our yarn is off course mulesing-free.
