Knitting pattern for Viola sweater
Viola is a beautiful and feminine, light sweater with a delicate stitch pattern, inspired by tiny violets. The circular yoke is simple and elegant, and it fits most women perfectly. This design is our take on a light and classic sweater that suits most climates through almost all seasons. The sweater features deep armholes and is slightly oversize with a positive ease of approx. 5-8 cm (2-3.5 inches). The sleeves are designed to be 3/4 length.
You can either knit Viola in our ultrasoft and luxurious Önling No 2 yarn, with which you'll get a light, yet snug and warm sweater, as No 2 is 100% pure merino wool. See kit in Önling No 2 here
You can also knit Viola in our Everyday kit,
in No 12 and No 13, which is a light combination of yarns, perfect for tops, T-shirts, and light sweaters. The Everyday Yarn kit consists of Önling No 12
, is a light mix of wool and cotton, and Önling No 13
, which is our accompanying thread in cashmere and super soft first-cut lambswool. Knitted together the two threads make up a fantastic combination, as No 13 gives No 12 a softer look, better texture, and firmer structure. Se Viola in the Everyday kit here

Directions: The sweater is worked in the round from the top down. Stitches are cast on using the provisional crochet caston method, allowing the size of the neck opening to be adjusted later.

The piece is then divided into body and sleeves, which are finished separately.
