We LOVE to knit together with all our dear customers. It was a true joy when so many of you participated in knitting the Emma shawl for last year's KAL. More than 1000 knitters in the world joined us!
This fall we knitted the Aiko KAL, but you can still make it for yourself. We designed it with a focus on making something pretty and exciting to knit, with challenging details, beautiful finish and of course a must-have in your knitwear wardrobe.wardrobe.
We are inspired by Japan, creating a simple silhouette and elegant look. We designed a garment for the upper half of the body, which is not a cardigan (no sleeves) or a shawl (it has armholes) – rather something in between a cape, an open poncho, and an oversized shawl. We named it the AIKO CAPE. AIKO is Japanese for love and devotion. Two things we have loads of at Önling.
We made this year Knit-A-Long into different yarn kits. This one is in the soft, light and luxurious combination of wool, cashmere and silk mohair. It is also available in our own soft and sustainable Önling No 1, in angora and merino wool. See the kit in the related products below.
In this kit, you knit with our newdelicateyarn, Önling No 11 and one strain of silk mohair. Creating a light, soft and cozy piece, easy to bring anywhere as an extra layer, or wear over a summer dress.
Önling No 11 is 90% merino and 10% cashmere and of course lives up to our high demands to sustainability. It runs 180m per 25g, perfect for knitting on needles in size 3. It is produced in Italy, by the same manufacturer, who makes Önling No 1 and 2. The silk mohair is either Önling No 10 or Brushed Lace from Mohair by Canard, depending on the color combination and stock. Önling serves the right to replace the type of silk mohair in yarn kits, as long as the color matches the image.
This yarn kit contains:Önling No 11 and Silk Mohair yarn for the elected size and a pattern released in 3 parts. You also get a cute measuring animal, a bag of tea and discount-code for a free knitting pattern.
