Knitting pattern for Damask sweater. The featherlight Isager Silk Mohair and Isager Alpaca 1 yarns, combined with a displaced half-fisherman’s rib pattern give a warm and soft sweater, that with it’s simple cut and sweet details already is missing in your wardrobe. The pattern is exciting to knit and resembles the finest damask woven piece - a structure that is both beautiful and exciting. It is longer at the back than the front and has edges in the lovely Silk Mohair.

Continue over the other shoulder, complete the body and knit the other sleeve. Sleeve and side seams are sewn or knitted together and edges are knitted on at the bottom and the neck line.

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.
