Work with 2 strands of yarn held together throughout
The models shown on the images are worked in other yarns than Önling No 20 and 8, but if you wish to knit a skirt in very similar colors, we recommend the following combinations:
Brown: Önling no 20, col 70 grey-brown mix and Önling No 8, col 351 Brown
Grey-blue: Önling no 20, col 79 lead grey + Önling No 8, col 614 grey blue
Recommended needles: 4,5 mm circular needle (60 and 80 and/or 100 cm) and 4 mm needle (80 or 100 cm), 3,5 mm needle (60 cm)
Gauge: 19 sts x 32 rows in waffle texture on needle no. 4,5 mm = 10 x 10 cm
Procedure: The skirt is worked top down. First, the waistband is worked in stockinette stitch in the round. It is then folded in half and knitted down. From here, you work in waffle texture and short rows are worked to lengthen the back relative to the front. Then, waffle texture is worked in the round with increases for the hips on both sides of the work.
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.
