Knitting pattern for Gotta Have Fade Vest by Spektakelstrik
The vest is worked bottom up in the round. The vest is knit in brioche sections.
The sections are separated by 2 rows of stockinette stitch with 2 strands of mohair.
Size: XS (S) M (L) XL (XXL) XXXL
Chest circumference: 82 (89) 97 (103) 111 (118) 125 cm
Full length: 46 (46) 50 (50) 53 (53) 53 cm
The vest will expand a little as it is being used because it is worked in brioche, which is very elastic. If in doubt, choose one size smaller than usual.
Circular needle size 3 mm (80 cm), circular needle size 6 mm (60 cm), circular needle size 7 mm (80 cm)
11 sts x 28 rows in brioche on needle size 7 = 10 x 10 cm.
Brioche expands quite much when it is washed. It is, therefore, important to wash the swatch before measuring. You may want to measure 20 cm to make sure you have the right gauge.
For the main colour of the vest: Peruvian Highland Wool from Filcolana is used – 100 % wool (50 g / 100 m).
On top of the main colour, Tilia from Filcolana is used – 70 % mohair, 30 % silk (25 g / 210 m).
4 different colours of mohair are used and fade from one to another. The vest is knit in 2 strands of mohair of different colours, except from the bottom and the second from the top stripes, on which the 2 strands of mohair have the same colour.
Main colour A: Peruvian Highland 101 - 250 (250) 250 (300) 300 (350) 350 g
Mohair colour 1 (from the bottom) colour B:Tilia 101 - 50 (50) 50 (75) 75 (75) 75 g

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.
