Knitting pattern for sweater with specks, a classic sweater design knitted in the extraordinary yarn, Önling No 5. We fell completely for this very special yarn. The yarn is made of cashmere, silk, alpaca and wool. Lots of flecks provide a wonderful play of colors. The yarn itself is so exciting and different that the design for this sweater should be very simple, so the yarn can appear at its best. And then just with some fun, delicate, surprising details.
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.

The sweater is worked in the round, from the top down. Cast on using a temporary crochet edge, so the size of the neckline can be adjusted subsequently. Short rows are worked across the shoulder and the neckline at the beginning to give a higher neckline. The yoke is worked with increases in raglan. Hereafter the work is divided and both sleeves and body are worked separately. Body is worked with short rows at the bottom, so the body is longer at the back than the front. The sleeves are worked in the round. Try on the sweater and then the temporary cast on edge is removed and a neckline is knitted on.

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.

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.
Why choose Önling?
It is our ambition to design your favorite knitwear, with a classic, versatile expression to make you feel smart and comfortable. Önling means favorite in Danish - so we take this ambition quite seriously, as we named our company after it.
We sell yarn under our own label - yarn that is produced in a family-run yarn mill in Italy. The yarn is produced according to organic standards and can be traced back to the individual sheep on the specific field, to ensure the welfare of the animals. All our yarn is off course mulesing-free.
