Washing

– Woolen knitted garments should be washed separately from other clothes and should not be presoaked
– While washing, it is desirable to use the special washing liquids intended for woolen and knitted products (that don’t contain bleaches)

Washing

 

Rinsing

– When rinsing the knit for the first time, water should be the same temperature, as while washing
– It is necessary to rinse carefully as the rest of washing liquid remaining in the product can spoil colour of the product while drying
– While rinsing the last time, it is necessary to add liquid that deletes static electricity

 

Drying

– The washed knit cannot be hung up and should be wringed out at first and wrapped in a towel to remove moisture
– The knitted woolen product should not be dried in immediate proximity from a radiator or under solar beams
– The dried up knit can be steamed at a distance of 10-15 sm. Never leave an iron on a knit

Drying

Pellets

– The formation of pellets is inevitable. You can remove it with a shaving machine tool without a sticky strip
– For this purpose, the product needs to be spread out on a rigid, smooth surface and shaved top-down

 

Storage

– The knitted garments should be stored together
– Use packages with special granules for smell and moisture absorption
– It is not recommended to hang up knitted products on hangers as they can get out of the shape

Seamless Yoke
The seamless yoke style is the simplest sweater to knit in the round from the top down. These sweaters are unique in their lack of visible armhole shaping. Since the shoulders and armholes are not well defined, the yokes of these sweaters have a less tailored fit.

Raglan
The next simplest style is the raglan. Sweaters with raglan shaping have distinctive “seams” between the front(s), back, and sleeves that form diagonal lines running from the neck edge to the base of the armholes. Beginning at the neck, the number of stitches on the front(s), back, and sleeves increase at regular intervals along these lines to give each section a triangular shape. Raglan sweaters fit nicely at the shoulders and lend themselves well to a close fit or waist shaping.

Sweater DesignModified Drop-Shoulder

For the modified drop-shoulder style, the sleeves join the yoke in “notches” that extend from the shoulders to the base of the armholes. Other than stitches cast on at the base of the armholes, there is no armhole shaping. Modified drop-shoulder (also called indented sleeve or square armhole) sweaters are characterized by a boxy shape and casual style. The sleeves are attached to the body along straight armhole edges. The resulting square shape provides a broad canvas on which it’s easy to incorporate texture patterns.

Modified drop shoulderSet-In Sleeve

Set-in sleeve styles have a classic tailored fit. The front(s) and back are worked separately to the desired armhole depth, with increases worked along the edges to tailor the shape of the armholes. Sweaters with set-in sleeves have tailored silhouettes and a timeless, classic quality. Because there is no excess fabric at the armholes, it gives a more refined look to even casual styles.
