Isling Icelandic sweater from Önling, No 1 knitting kit
The Isling Sweater has been inspired by the Nordic winter, nature, sea, and sand dunes, as well as the need for a warm and comfortable sweater. Last Christmas I was in my summer house in North Jutland and desperately needed an ISLING.
IS (Danish for ’ice’), wind, snow, storm, and LING = my favorite, a darling. By combining the two words the name of the sweater came to me. This is my all-time warm and cozy sweater that I love to wear. The first one I made is huge and oversize, intended for wearing on top of everything else as an outer garment. I have worn it all winter, every morning after my winter swim. First, I would stand on it, on top of a small towel, in the ‘bath house’, to keep my feet warm, and then I would put it on. The yarn used for the sweater is our own sustainable Önling No 1, which is perfect for Icelandic sweaters and fair isle patterns. The design is somewhat oversize, with approx. 10 cm / 4 inches of positive ease, to leave room for having several layers of clothing underneath when you go outside. If you want a tighter fit, you can make it one size smaller.
