First, stitches are cast-on for the back of the neck. These stitches are then worked flat in waffle texture with rib on either side of the work, while increases are made at the same time to shape the top of the back section. Then, stitches are picked up along the shoulder edges. The front shoulders are worked flat then joined with a few newly cast-on sts in between. The front and back pieces are the joined and the body is worked in the round in waffle texture, with cables, and rib down the sides. Stitches for the sleeves are then picked up and worked in waffle texture in the round. The sleeves are shaped with decreases and the cuffs are worked in rib. To finish, stitches are picked up for the neckband which is worked in the round in rib and finished with a tubular bind-off.
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.
