Stockholmsweater Junior by PetiteKnit, Alpaca 2 + Silk mohair kit
Knitting kit for Stockholmsweater Junior by PetiteKnit in Isager Alpaca 2 + Silk mohair
The Stockholm Sweater Junior is knit from the top down in stockinette stitch with two strands of silk/mohair lace weight yarn held together. You begin by working the top of the back flat, after which stitches are picked up along the cast on edge for the shoulders. Each shoulder is knit separately and shaped using short rows, so they slope neatly. The front and back of the sweater are joined under the armholes, thereafter the body is knit in the round. For the sleeves, stitches are picked up along the arm holes, and then knit in the round to the cuff on DPNs or a circular needle using Magic Loop. Finally stitches are picked up along the neck opening, and a rib collar is knit, folded over, and sewn down on the wrong side. The Stockholm Sweater Junior requires no other finishing than sewing down the neckband.

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.
We serve customers worldwide!
Unfortunately, regulation, distances and language barriers make this a complex task, so in order to best serve all our customers we have set up 3 different web shops targeted to different countries.
Önling is based in Denmark, part of the European Union, so the main distinction is that we have to charge Danish VAT of 25% when selling to countries within the EU. Customers from countries outside of the European Union can purchase our products without paying VAT. Customers within the EU should therefore visit our EU store, whereas customers outside the EU should visit our international INT store. Both these stores are in English, so in addition to this we have a web shop in Danish for our Danish customers (who also pay VAT).
