a classic design with a twist, a sweater for a comfy and everyday use, exactly how we love them. and you know what? we love Isager's yarn. Marianne & Helga Isager, mother & daughter from Denmark, have created their own lines of yarn alongside their own designs, and we find it incredibly beautiful. astrid therefore wanted to create a design fully knit with Isager yarn, where she chose a wool with an alpaca, and created this loose-shaped comfy beauty of a sweater. 

we have created 4 color combinations you can discover on the photographs :
01_ spinni no. 2s + alpaca 1 no. 2s
02_ spinni no. 28s + alpaca 1 no. 28s
03_ spinni no. 47 + alpaca 1 no. 47
04_ spinni no. 61 + alpaca 1 no. 61
05_ custom colors : you can choose any color of isager "spinni" + one of isager "alpaca 1". you can discover all of the shades on the wool product page and just fill out the form underneath !

the wool : it is from the danish brand isager, in a "spinni", pure wool from denmark, and an "alpaca 1", pure alpaca, beautiful quality that, blended with lamsbwool, creates that really warm and soft touch. for the knitting needles, astrid has used 4,5mm / UK 7 / US 7 which you can find in our tool shop !

kit sizes : each size has its kit !
pattern sizes : small-medium / 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 + double stitch + 3-needle cast off + assembling using mattress stitches (everything is of course explained in the pattern !)
construction : the sweater is knit flat in 4 pieces, bottom up. 

dimensions of the finished sweater : 
small / medium : chest width 48cm [18.91"] / length 58cm [22.85"] / sleeve length 45cm [17.73"] 
medium / large : chest width 58cm [22.85"] / length 60cm [23.64"] / sleeve length 45cm [17.73"] 

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
