designing knitwear is also about playing with texture. assembling different yarns to create surprising and dreamy results. for our no. 25, Astrid worked a pure lambswool together with a pure alpaca. sounds pretty good, doesn't it? the pattern has a simple and elegant look, with this delicate details on the neckband and cuffs, very traditional Norway inspired. astrid just finished knitting one for herself, thanks to the Woolful x biches & bûches knitalong taking place on instagram (#woolfulxbichesKAL), which she has chosen to make in off-white with blue grey details. she had already made the grey one you can see on the photos, as well as a burgundy one, but louise and i snapped those two.
the sweater is worked in the round, bottom-up.

we have created 4 color combinations you can discover on the photographs :

the wool : it is the biches & bûches "le petit lambswool", a natural and 100% lambswool from scotland. the other one is from the danish brand isager, in a  "alpaca 1", pure alpaca, beautiful quality that, blended with lamsbwool, creates that really warm and soft touch. for the knitting needles, astrid has used : 3mm / US 2.5 / UK 11 double pointed needles for the cuffs + 3,5mm / US 4 / UK 9.5 double pointed needles for the cuffs and the neck band + 4mm / US 6 / UK 8 and 4,5mm / US 7 / UK 7 circular needles for the body - which you can find in our tool shop !

how to determine your size : you can take your favorite knitted sweater, worked in a yarn similar to the one you are considering, and measure its dimensions. it may not have the exact same shape, but it will give you an idea of the size to choose ! a sweater in thin wool is often designed a little loose, so it is best to choose a slightly larger than smaller size, and the biches & bûches designs are actually not intended to be worn tight <3
