Knitting pattern for a beautiful and fun shawl. 

The Elsie scarf is a narrow triangle, with cheeky increases in the middle and a new way to tie it on. A fun little something that can go around your neck twice and keep you nice and warm during this cold, cold winter. The shawl of course matches the hat from the first package, with the same simple and cool pattern.

The Elsie scarf is knitted in our own soft and sustainable yarn Önling No 2, 100% merino wool.

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 :-) Read more about digital knitting patterns here.

Önling No 2, 100% Supersoft merino wool, 120 m per 25 g.

Knit with either color A (grey advent calendar) or color B (multi colored advent calendar) and there is enough yarn for a shawl. It can easily be knitted a bit longer with the yarn left over from the hat.

3 stitch markers
Recommended needle size 4 / US 6

20 sts and 30 rows in stockinette st with needle 4 mm / US 6 = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches.
The rib pattern is very elastic and is impossible to measure, so knit your gauge swatch in stockinette st.

You cast on stitches and knit back and forth. You knit neat i cord edges on each side and increase for more width by yarning over on each side of two middle sts we call MS, on every 10th row. The shawl is the same at the front and back and reversed across the centre.

This pattern is a digital file that will be available for download immediately after purchase.

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.

Washing instructions for your knitwear
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.
