mmmh the no. 42, one of my personal favorites. i am in love with its loose shape with this thick neckband. a chunky version of our colorful series, and with this dark red as main color, we call it our good mood sweater, putting us in our favorite mood. i am seriously thinking about knitting one for myself in a dark grey version as main color.
the sweater is knit in the round, bottom-up, using circular needles.

we have created 4 different color combinations that you can discover on the photographs :
01_ dark red + dark grey + grey beige (the original version)

large : chest width 62cm [24.43"] / length 56cm [22.06"] / armhole 22cm [8.67"] / sleeve length 47cm [18.52"]

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
