biches & bûches no. 12 // knitting kit

from 58.00

the no. 12 is a lace sweater. it is worked top-down and knit in the round. it was first published several years ago using yarn from the danish brand Kauni and we still have a few skeins left of this yarn. it is a pure new wool, more rustic than our petit lambswool - it gets softer after washing.

the sweater has just been updated using our le petit lambswool and

we have created kits in 4 different colors in le petit lambswool :
01_ very light pink
02_ blue grey
03_ light yellow
04_ grey beige
05_ custom colors : you can choose any color of our "le petit lambswool". you can discover all of the shades on the wool product page and just fill out the form underneath !

and 3 colors in Kauni :
06_grey brown
07_soft green
08_light pink (as the photos)

the wool : it is the biches & bûches "le petit lambswool", a natural and 100% lambswool from scotland. astrid knit this sweater using needle size 3mm / UK 11 / US 3 + 3,5mm / UK 9 1/2 / US 4 - which you can find in our tools shop !

construction : the sweater is knit top down - flat at the top and then in the round from the armholes and down - in one piece. stitches for the sleeves are picked up and the sleeves are knit top down in the round. no sewing !

dimensions of the finished sweater : 
small : chest width 44cm [17.3"] / length 57cm [22.4"] / sleeve length 41cm [16.1"]
medium : chest width 49cm [19.3"] / length 60cm [23.6"] / sleeve length 43cm [16.9"]
large : chest width 54cm [21.3"] / length 63cm [24.8"] / sleeve length 45cm [17.7"]

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
