Knitting pattern for REVERSE LOOP SWEATER by Other Loops 

REVERSE LOOP SWEATER is a slightly A-shaped, oversize sweater. The top part of the body is worked in a purl-structured pattern, and the bottom part of the body and the sleeves are worked in stockinette. The shoulder features a purl stitch detail that continues along the armhole and forms a border along the side of the body.

The sweater is designed by talented Maja Kløvdal aka @otherloops and you can work it in several different yarn alternatives for a slightly different look and feel. The yellow, blue and grey models are knitted in Önling No 2 + Önling No 21 for a light and slightly crisp feeling. The copper/white coloured model is knitted in Önling No 10 + Önling No 15 for a classic, soft feel.

Recommended needle sizes:
Circular needles size 4.5 mm, 4 mm, and 3.5 mm / US 7, 6, and 4 (40 and 80 or 100 cm / 16 and 32 or 40 inches).

Gauge: 19 sts x 26 rows in stockinette stitch on needle size 4.5 mm = 10 x 10 cm

Knitting process:
The sweater is worked top down. First, stitches are cast on for the back of the neck, which is then continued back and forth with increases to shape the top part of the back panel. The increases are worked to create an eyelet pattern along the edge of the shoulder.

Following that, stitches are picked up along the shoulder seam, and the shoulders are worked individually back and forth. The 2 shoulders are then joined by casting
on stitches to form the front panel. The front and back panels are then joined, and the body worked in the round on a circular needle. Short rows are worked on

the body where the stitch pattern changes from reverse stockinette to stockinette, to reduce the number of purl stitches that need to be worked. The body is finished with a wide border of purl stitch.

Neckline stitches are picked up and worked in rib stitch. The neck hem is folded double and knitted down. Finally, sleeve stitches are picked up from the armholes and worked in the round. Short rows are worked where the stitch pattern structure changes, and the sleeves are finished with a wide border of purl stitch, as on the body.

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.
