Knitting kit for Friday Sweater for kids by PetiteKnit in Önling No 11
Friday sweater is a great classic sweater with a maritime twist - and now it is available for kids as well! The Friday Sweater Mini is worked from the top down in broken rib with raglan increases. The neck edge is worked in rib and folded. Cuffs and hem are also worked in rib.
Begin by working a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge. Remember to wash your swatch before measuring the gauge – as broken rib grows with wash.
The Friday Sweater Mini is designed to have approx. 10-13 cm of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 10-13 cm larger in circumference than chest measurement of the child. The measurements of the finished sweater can be found on the front page of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure the child to determine which size will fit the best. For example, if the child’s chest measurement is 63 cm, you should knit size 5-6 years. A sweater size 5-6 year has a chest circumference of 74 cm which in the given example would give a sweater with 11 cm of positive ease.

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.
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).
