Knitting pattern for Dione cardigan, a stunningly beautiful cardigan with drapes and elegant stripes. The front pieces are oversize and must hang and drape. Beautiful and elegant in its simplicity. The back piece and sleeves are completely classical, letting the front pieces speak their own shape expression. The cardigan is fun to knit and beautiful to wear. The combination of Isager Spinni and Isager Alpaca 1 gives an incredibly soft, luscious and durable cardigan.
This yarn kit contains: Isager Alpaca 1 and Spinni for the elected size.
The yarn kit does not include knitting pattern. The pattern is part of the book "Yndlingsstrik 4" (in Danish), and can also be purchased separately (in Danish and English) - see related products below.

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.
