Vesterhav shawl, knitting pattern

Knitting pattern for Vesterhav shawl.

In our raw and wild yarn, Önling No 9, we have designed a shawl that is perfectly suited to saltwater sprays from the North Sea, closeness to nature, and life in general. The somewhat rugged look of the shawl is softened by pretty buttons scattered all over the texture. To top it all, the shawl is bordered by a beautiful Hapsaalu lace pattern originating from the old Estonian knitting tradition, which realized in our yarns Önling No 9 and 10 combines simplicity with airy and beautiful, traditional lace knit. We also designed a matching sweater, featuring the same button pattern, materials and color variants as this shawl.

The Vesterhav shawl can also be knit in Önling No 1, merino wool og angora, with Silk Mohair, which creates a lighter and softer version of the design.

All designs have been thoroughly calculated and tested.

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.
