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!
