a classic and elegant sweater. I call it the baseball sweater, and is actually Jørgen's favorite (my dad). this is a tighter sweater than astrid's usual designs, perfect to wear under a jacket or a coat, and always always classying up a pair of jeans! custom colors possible indeed, for that just scroll all the way down !

we have created 4 different color combinations that you can discover on the photographs :
01_ grey brown + dark grey (original version)
02_ dark burgundy grey + very light blue
03_ very light pink + white
04_ dark blue black + beige
05_ custom colors : you can choose any two colors of our "le petit lambswool". 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 petit lambswool", a natural and 100% lambswool from scotland. astrid knit this sweater with needles 3mm / UK 11 / US 3 - which you can find in our tools shop !

kit sizes : each size has its kit !
pattern sizes : small / medium / large / x-large / xx-large (all sizes are detailed in 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 + cables + change of color + picking up stitches + 3-needle cast off + assembling using mattress stitches (everything is of course detailed in the pattern !) 
construction : the sweater is knit flat bottom up, in four pieces.

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
