Knitting pattern for Delia sweater, a graphical and beautiful raglan sweater with a distinctive rib pattern and a boat neck for a good fit. A classic model that you can not live without in your wardrobe. Fancy zippers on the sides give it a feminine look. It is knitted in the delicate Isager Merilin in wool and linen together with the soft and thin Isager Alpaca 1, which is pure alpaca. This combined gives a light, beautiful and heathered structure and color scheme. If you choose two yarns that are more similar in color, the sweater color will become more solid.
The pattern is a PDF file. Immediately after purchase you will be able to download the pattern directly from the purchase confirmation page.

The sweater is knitted from the top down in rib pattern, with edges in garter ridges. Knit short rows over the neck, sleeves and onto the front piece while increasing simulteanously for the raglan. After the short rows the pattern on the body and the sleeves is symmetrical in both front and back. Increases are still made for the raglan and the rest of the yoke is shaped. The work is divided, and sleeves and body are finished separately.
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.
