Knitting pattern for Sharpei Sweater, designed by Créadia Studio
Sharpei Sweater is a soft and expressive, slightly 'cropped' sweater, made up of horizontally knitted pleats.
The sweater is knitted from the bottom up. First, the body is knitted in the round on circular needles until you reach the desired length, and then divided into front and back pieces. These are worked separately, back and forth on the needle at the same time as the neckline is shaped. The shoulders are sewn together.
The sleeves are knitted with increases to create a balloon effect and are finally sewn on to the body.

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.
