Knitting pattern for Dahlia sweater
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.
The pattern is a PDF file. Immediately after purchase you will be able to download the pattern directly from the purchase confirmation page. You will also receive an e-mail with a link to your pattern, and the pattern will be available here at the site via your personal account - so remember to create an account :-)

We serve customers worldwide!
Unfortunately, regulation, distances and language barriers make this a complex task, so in order to best serve all our customers we have set up 3 different web shops targeted to different countries.
Önling is based in Denmark, part of the European Union, so the main distinction is that we have to charge Danish VAT of 25% when selling to countries within the EU. Customers from countries outside of the European Union can purchase our products without paying VAT. Customers within the EU should therefore visit our EU store, whereas customers outside the EU should visit our international INT store. Both these stores are in English, so in addition to this we have a web shop in Danish for our Danish customers (who also pay VAT).
