biches & bûches no. 55 // knitting kit

from 88.00

some years ago, i saw a photo of a very elegant woman dressed all in off-white with a short knitted sweater and a pair of trousers and i have had this sweater in mind ever since. this is the inspiration for the biches & bûches no.55, which ended up being a larger design, with comfy and hygge in mind. this model also wears cooperation in its own story as for the first time, i had the loveliest knitters testing the pattern along its making. so we owe a big thank you to Lisa, Tania, Sabine, Caroll, Claire, et Abby (who also made some very pretty drawings for the pattern).

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
