Knitting pattern for Dagmar sweater, a classic sweater with a twist - fun to knit and beautiful to wear. A little more length on the back gives a good fit, and the effect with the braids on the sides adds the little extra pizazz - these can easily be omitted though. The combination of Isager yarn, Spinni and Alpaca 1, provides an incredibly soft, lightweight and durable sweater that you can have in your wardrobe for many years.

The sweater is worked in the round, from the top down. Cast-on stitches using a temporary crochet cast on, so the size of the neckline can be adjusted subsequently. Short rows are worked across the shoulder and the neckline at the beginning to give a higher neckline. The yoke is worked with increases. Hereafter the work is divided and both the sleeves and the body are worked separately. Work short rows from the center back and onto the front piece to increase the length at the back.
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.
