we are so happy to be part of laine magazine issue 6 with the design afterparty ! 

thank you to the laine team !

the original yarn kit for the afterparty sweater is in our le cashmere & lambswool. the original colors (dark grey in our le cashmere & lambswool) are in pre-order for mid/late november, but we have le cashmere & lambswool in grey brown, medium grey, light grey and light pink.

you can also knit the afterparty sweater in our petit lambswool where the color choice is much bigger and you can choose between our 30 beautiful colors !

the pullover has a slight A-formed shape and colorwork at the cuffs and yoke that can be adapted to your own preferred color choices. it is worked seamlessly from the bottom up, in the round in our biches & bûches le cashmere & lambswool. 

the original yarn is biches & bûches le cashmere & lambswool in dark grey as the main color and the colorwork is in grey brown.

The pattern is in the laine magazine issue 6 !

the sample was knit in size M with 4–6” / 10–15 cm of 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
