Knitting kit for Dahlia sweater in Everyday kit, No 12 og 13.
Dahlia is a wonderful, classic sweater with a beautiful, structured stitch pattern, inspired by the Dahlia petal structure. Perfect for all seasons of the Danish weather. We have invented some new increase techniques that you will learn as you go.
Dahlia is easy to knit, top-down, which lets you fit the sweater to your measurements as you go. The design is oversize, with a positive ease of approx. 15-20 cm (6-8 inches) compared to your body measurements, and features deep armholes and 3/4 sleeves.
Here we knit Dahlia in our Everyday kit, which is a light combination of yarns, perfect for tops, T-shirts, and light sweaters. The everyday kit consists of Önling No 12
, a light mix of wool and cotton, and Önling No 13,
which is our accompanying thread in cashmere and super soft first-cut lambswool. Knitted together the two threads make up a fantastic combination, as No 13 gives No 12 a softer look, better texture, and firmer structure.
You can also knit Dahlia in our ultrasoft and luxurious Önling No 2 yarn, with which you'll get a light, yet snug and warm sweater, as No 2 is 100% pure merino wool. See Dahlia kit in Önling No 2 here
The knitting kit contains: Önling No 12 and Önling No 13 yarn and a pattern.

Please note that for size 3XL, you will get 2 x Everyday Kit (4 cones No 12 and 2 cones No 13), which causes a sharp price increase.
NOTE! The above quantity of yarn is enough to work the sweater with 3/4 sleeves. If you want full-length sleeves, you need to buy 1 extra cone of No. 12 and 1 extra cone of No. 13 for sizes XL and 2XL.
The sweater is worked all the way through with one strand of No 12 and one strand of No. 13 held together.
Gauge: 22 sts and 32 rows/rounds of stockinette stitch on needle(s) size 4 mm / US 6 = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches.
Recommended circular and double-pointed needles sizes 3.5 and 4 mm / US 4 and 6.
Directions: The sweater is worked in the round from the top down. Stitches are cast on using the provisional crochet caston method to allow adjusting the neckline later. Short rows are used over shoulders and the back of the neck to make the neck higher at the back. The yoke is worked with raglan increases and deep armholes. The piece is then divided into body and sleeves, which are finished separately.
Washing directions: The yarn Önling No 12 and No 13 has not been prewashed when you receive the cones. You get the best result by soaking the finished project in lukewarm water for about 2 hours. Then wash the project as you would otherwise do using a wool wash, either by hand or using the wool cycle of your washing machine. Dry flat.
Please Note: The price of the yarn kit is calculated based on the amount of yarn included, which is the amount we have used to knit the design according to the above measurements. Should you need more yarn, additional yarn can be purchased at regular prices by placing an order and state LOT number in the comment box at checkout. All designs have been thoroughly calculated and tested.
