Holiday Slipover by PetiteKnit, No 1 + No 2 + Silk mohair
Knitting kit for Holiday Slipover in Önling No 1, Önling No 2 + Silk mohair
The Holiday Slipover is a chunky slipover with deep armholes. It is worked from the top down in stockinette stitch. First the back of the yoke is worked, then the shoulders, then the front of the yoke and finally the body. A split rib edge where the back section is worked a bit longer than the front section is worked at the hem. Rib edges are worked at the neck edge and along the armholes at the end, and finished with an Italian cast-off for a neat and lovely finish.
Knit a swatch before beginning the project to check if the recommended needle size gives you the correct gauge. Note that three strands of yarn are held together throughout the pattern for a chunky look (two strands of the bigger yarn and one strand of the thin silk mohair yarn).
The knitting kit contains: Yarn for the selected size and a printed pattern, which you'll receive physically with your yarn.
You choose 2 colors, Önling No 1 and Önling No 2, and Önling will add a matching color of No 10 silk mohair.
Holiday Slipover is designed to have approx. 6 cm of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 6 cm larger in circumference than your chest measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a chest circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-50 cm. Before beginning your project, measure yourself with a measuring tape around your bust to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm around your bust (or the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S sweater has a bust circumference of 96 cm, which in the given example would give you 5 cm [2 inches] of positive ease.
If you would like a more oversize fit, chose a size larger than you would normally do.

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).
