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.
You can either 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 kit in Önling No 2 here
You can also knit Dahlia in our Everyday kit, in No 12 and No 13, which is a light combination of yarns, perfect for tops, T-shirts, and light sweaters.The Everyday Yarn kit consists of Önling No 12, is a light mix of wool and cotton, and Önling No 13, whichis 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.See Dahlia in the Everyday kit here
