Knitting pattern for Aiko Cape.

We LOVE to knit together with all our dear customers. It was a true joy when so many of you participated in knitting the Emma shawl for last year's KAL. More than 1000 knitters in the world joined us! In spring 2019 we knitted Aiko Cape.

Katrine Hannibal designed it with a focus on making something pretty and exciting to knit, with challenging details, beautiful finish and of course a must-have in your knitwear wardrobe.

We are inspired by Japan, creating a simple silhouette and elegant look. We designed a garment for the upper half of the body, which is not a cardigan (no sleeves)or a shawl (it has armholes) – rather something in between a cape, an open poncho, and an oversized shawl. We named it the AIKO CAPE. AIKO is Japanese for love and devotion. Two things we have loads of at Önling.

We also offer two different yarn kits for this Knit-A-Long. Either the soft, light and luxurious combination of wool, cashmere Önling No 11 and silk mohair. Or our classic soft and sustainable Önling No 1, in angora and merino wool. See the kits in related products below.

The pattern is a PDF file and is released in 3 parts/clues. You will receive an e-mail with a link to your collected patterns, and the pattern will be available here at the site via your personal account - so remember to create an account :-)

We are looking forward to knitting with all of you again, and follow your process and AIKO capes on Önling Knit Community on Facebook and on Instagram!

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS

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.
