Knitting kit for Swirl by Helga Isager.

SWIRL has deep raglan sleeve holes and an oversize fit. The sweater is worked from the bottom up. The sleeves and body are worked separately and then joined for the yoke, which is worked in the round with raglan decreases on front and back. The sleeves are worked straight and then double decreases are worked at the shoulders to gather the tops of the sleeves. Stitches are picked up and knitted along the neck edge and a wide rib is worked, the same as on the body and sleeves. SWIRL is a model with a characteristic feminine touch from Helga Isager, who is one of Denmark’s most famous knitwear designers.

SWIRL is knitted with Isager Merilin (A) og Isager Alpaca 2 (B). The shown model is knitted with Merilin col. 0 and Alpaca 2 col. 3

The kit includes: Isager Merilin and Isager Alpaca 2 in the right amount for the your selected size, and a printed pattern.

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.
