from 120.00

ah, the no. 4. this blending of blues with a sharp red, takes us back to my grandpa, aka astrid's dad's boat. a little wooden boat, that would take us sailing on the danish sea and dark waves, all the way to the strong sunset slowly fading into the night. there is this color combination that louise is wearing in a size medium, and you can also ask for your own colors in the form at the bottom of the page!

we have created 4 different color combinations that you can discover on the photographs :
01_ grey beige (main color) + dark grey + norwegian red + turquoise + medium blue
02_ grey beige (main color) + dark grey + dark green grey + light yellow + dark orange grey
03_ off-white (main color) + dark grey + dark burgundy grey + light yellow + grey brown
04_ beige (main color) + dark red + blue grey + very light pink + turquoise
05_ custom colors : you can choose any 5 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 2,5mm / UK 12 / US 2 + 3mm / UK 10 / US 3 - which you can find in our tools shop !

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 : 3 out of 5
techniques : knit stitch + purl stitch + corrugated rib + knitting with one color at a time + picking up stitches + 3-needle cast off + sewing using mattress stitches (everything is of course explained in the pattern, this is to give you an overview of how to knit it !)
construction : the sweater is knit flat bottom up, in four pieces, and sewn together, beginning with a provisional cast-on.

dimensions of the finished sweater : 
small : chest width 47cm [18.52"] / length 58cm [22.85"] / sleeve length 44cm [17.34"] / armhole 19cm [7.5"]
medium : chest width 52cm [20.5"] / length 60cm [23.64"] / sleeve length 46cm [18.12"] / armhole 21cm [8.27"]
large : chest width 57cm [22.46"] / length 62cm [24.43"] / sleeve length 46cm [18.12"] / 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
