KAL – Knit-A-Long 2019 - AIKO CAPE, No 1 kal knitting kit
Yarn kit for Aiko Cape, Önling Knit-A-Long 2019.
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 Knit-A-Long in two different yarn kits. This one is in our own soft and sustainable Önling No 1, in angora and merino wool. It is also available in the soft, light and luxurious combination of wool, cashmere Önling No 11 and silk mohair. See the kit in the related products below.
Önling No 1 is 75% Merino Superfine Super 100’s wool and 25% Angora. It runs 180 m pr. 50 g. The yarn is, of course, sustainable, extremely soft and comfy. It is produced by our manufacture in Italy and comes in many beautiful colors.
This yarn kit contains: Önling No 1 yarn for the elected size and a digital pattern.
The pattern is a PDF file and is released in 3 parts/clues. You will receive an e-mail with a link to your collected patterns, and the pattern will be available here at the site via your personal account - so remember to create an account :-)

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.
We serve customers worldwide!
Unfortunately, regulation, distances and language barriers make this a complex task, so in order to best serve all our customers we have set up 3 different web shops targeted to different countries.
Önling is based in Denmark, part of the European Union, so the main distinction is that we have to charge Danish VAT of 25% when selling to countries within the EU. Customers from countries outside of the European Union can purchase our products without paying VAT. Customers within the EU should therefore visit our EU store, whereas customers outside the EU should visit our international INT store. Both these stores are in English, so in addition to this we have a web shop in Danish for our Danish customers (who also pay VAT).
