Knitting pattern for Sugar by Marianne Isager - can only be purchased as part of a knitting kit with Isager Yarn

This is a beautiful jacket / cardigan, which actually has a fun story. Marianne Isager first stumbled over the jacket at her aunt Ella's. Originally Ella traded the jacket for sugar rationing stamps during World War II - hence the name.

Ella's original jacket had ribbed edges but today the edges are incorporated in the simple cable pattern and great design ensures that the edges are held in place. Sugar is a feminine cardigan with a very good fit. The new pattern is an updated version of model 1937 and the well-known Sugar Sweater - now with an even better fit and knitted in a lovely mix of Trio and Merilin, for at beautiful structure.

The jacket is knitted from the bottom up. All stitches for the front and back are cast on and knitted in one piece. The sleeves are sewn on seperately. The pattern is mostly worked in garter stitch, but with little cables worked over the 2 stockinette stitches between the garter stitch stripes.

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.
