thank you to the amirisu team who published our design in their issue 16, june 2018

this oversized pullover has a simple and feminin shape and colorwork at the cuffs and yoke that can be adapted to your own preferred color choices. it is worked top-down, in the round in our biches & bûches le petit lambswool.

The pattern is in the amirisu magazine issue 16 !

the sample was knit in size S with 8¾" / 22 cm positive ease

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
