Knitting pattern for the Balloon jacket, designed by PetiteKnit.

The Balloon Jacket is a heavy cardigan or jacket, oversize with large balloon shaped sleeves. Use it for cold winter days or as a light jacket in spring and fall.

The Balloon Jacket is knit from the bottom up in knit stitches with rib stitch edges. The body and sleeves are knit separately and sewn together afterwards.

We made two variation yarn kits for this lovely jacket. It is available in Önling No 1, soft combination of merino wool and angora. Or in Önling No 2, 100% merino wool. See both kits in related products below.

Washing instructions for your knitwear
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.
