The Jenny Jacket is worked from the bottom up in a knitted smock pattern. The body and sleeves are worked separately and then gathered on the circular needle for the yoke. The yoke is worked with short rows at the top to shape the neckline. The body is worked back and forth, while the sleeves are worked in the round, either on double-pointed needles or on a circular needle using the Magic Loop technique. At the end, stitches are picked up along the front edges to knit the button bands or plackets. At the end, the neck edge is worked.
The Jenny Jacket is designed to have approx. 12-15 cm of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 12-15 cm larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-105 (105-115) 115-125 (125-135) cm.
The measurements for the finished garment are on the front page of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure yourself with a measuring tape around your bust (or your widest upper body part) to determine which size will fit you the best.
For example, if you measure 90 cm around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size S.
A size S sweater has a bust circumference of 102 cm which in the given example would give you 12 cm of positive ease. If you are between two sizes, I recommend choosing the smaller size, as the smock pattern will grow with wear.
The knitting kit contains: Yarn for the selected size and a printed pattern, which you'll receive physically with your yarn. Buttons are not included.

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).
