this is our little chunky sweetheart of a sweater. the kind that makes you feel like a cute little bear. every summer we have been enjoying many meals outside in the sun, or under our big tree when it gets too hot, as it often does here in the south of France. we are then surrounded by lavender bushes and humming bees, and loads of pretty butterflies, especially white ones, just flying around us. those little ones inspired astrid for this sweater, and got their own spot on the upper part. yes, we call these our small butterflies.

we have created 4 color combinations you can discover on the photographs :
01_ le gros lambswool beige + silk mohair no. 6
02_ le gros lambswool off-white + silk mohair no. 0
03_ le gros lambswool light grey + silk mohair no. 3M
04_ le gros lambswool dark red + silk mohair no. 28
05_ custom colors : you can choose any color of our "le gros lambswool" + one of isager "silk-mohair". you can discover all of the shades on the wool product page and just fill out the form underneath !

the wool : it is the biches & bûches "le gros lambswool", a natural and 100% lambswool from scotland. the other one is from the danish brand isager, in a  "silk-mohair" quality (75% kid mohair + 25% silk from italy). the knitting needles are some circular 5mm / UK 6 / US 8 + 6mm / UK 4 / US 10 - which you can find in our tool shop !

kit sizes : each size has its kit !
pattern sizes : small / medium / large (all sizes are detailed on the pattern !)

the knitting kit: your kit contains the wool in the chosen colors and for the chosen model size + the pattern in the selected language + the little biches & bûches knitting pouch.

skill level : 2 out of 5
techniques : knit stitch + purl stitch + slip stitch + knitting with 2 threads + picking up stitches + 3-needle cast off + assembling the sweater using mattress stitch (everything is of course explained in the pattern !)
construction : the sweater is knit in 4 pieces bottom up, holding the 2 strands together. 

dimensions of the finished sweater : 
small : chest width 55cm [21.67"] / length 57cm [22.46"] / sleeve length 43cm [16.94"] / armhole 21cm [8.27"]
medium : chest width 60cm [23.64"] / length 59cm [23.25"] / sleeve length 45cm [17.73"] / armhole 23cm [9.06"]

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
