Silk Sweater, Everyday knitting kit
Knitting kit for Silk sweater in our Everyday kit, Önling No 12 and No 13, wool, cotton and cashmere
The Silk Sweater is an Önling classic, and one of your absolute favorites - a soft and light basic sweater. The sweater is a bit oversize at the breast width section and has a light a-shape that can be omitted. Small stars can be knitted at the increases, which gives a nice graphic expression. These can be omitted if a more pure and simple expression is desired. The sleeves are designed with 3⁄4 length, but the pattern also describes how to knit long sleeves if desired.
Önling’s Everyday kit, in No 12 and No 13, is a light and summerly combination, perfect for tops, T-shirts, and light sweaters. Our Everyday Yarn, Önling No 12, is a light mix of wool and cotton. Önling No 13 is our new accompanying thread in cashmere and super soft first-cut lambswool. Knitted together the two threads make up a fantastic combination, as No 13 gives No 12 a softer look, better texture, and firmer structure. The light purple version in the images is knit in the color Lilac.
Note: This version does not contain silk yarn. See other variations and knitting kits in related products below.

The yarn Önling No 12 and No 13 has not been prewashed when you receive the cones. You get the best result by soaking the finished project in lukewarm water for about 2 hours. Then wash the project as you would otherwise do using a wool wash, either by hand or using the wool cycle of your washing machine. Dry flat.
