Knitting kit for Robinia sweater by Anne Ventzel in Önling No 10, 12, 16 and 20

ROBINIA SWEATER is another classic and beautiful sweater by Danish knitwear designer Anne Ventzel. Robinia is a soft and feminine sweater with an elegant pattern worked in stranded knitting. The sweater is worked from the top down. First the back and front yoke are worked back and forth, then the two sections are joined for the body, which is worked in the round. Stitches are picked up and knitted along the armholes and the sleeves are worked down and finished with cuffs in twisted rib. Short rows are worked both on the front and back yoke and on the sleeves to create a really nice fit.

The pattern is a PDF file. Immediately after purchase you will be able to download the pattern directly from the purchase confirmation page. You will also receive an e-mail with a link to your pattern, and the pattern will be available here at the site via your personal account - so remember to create an account :-) Read more about digital knitting patterns here.

You will receive the pattern in both English and German.

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.
