biches & bûches no. 46 // knitting kit


some autumn shades with a wide neckband and a loose look, a little blending that gives you our sweater 46, that astrid designed in May 2016. the first time we showed this piece was on the Fanø Festival in Denmark, and suddenly we realized how it was matching the fields we were walking in. it is an incredible thing to see people connecting with our things, and this one really has touched some souls. on the technical aspect, this one is worked top-down, in the round, one color at a time!

we have created 4 different color combinations that you can discover on the photographs :
01_ dark grey brown + dark red + yellow mustard + beige (the original colors)
02_ dark blue black + white + very light blue + light yellow
03_ dark burgundy grey + off-white + very light pink + grey brown
04_ dark green grey + blue grey + yellow mustard + grey beige
05_ custom colors : you can choose any 4 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 !

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
