astrid loves a very simple design, which should also be large, with in mind something she can wear everyday. an easy project to knit, a sweater to wear all the time. the hood is definitely bringing an original touch to the design, and as she says "I love hoods!". it's true that you can very often catch her hidden under a hood in the evening while she is knitting on the couch.

we have created 1 color combination that you can discover on the photographs :
01_ light grey + mariposa (the original version)
02_ custom colors : you can choose any color of our "le gros lambswool" + one "worsted" from malabrigo. 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 gros lambswool", a natural and 100% lambswool from scotland. astrid knit this sweater with needles 4mm / UK 8 / US 6 and 4.5mm / UK 7 / US 7 + 4mm double pointed needles for the lower part of the sleeves, but you can also just use your circular ones - 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 + purl stitch + picking up stitches + 3-needle cast off (everything is of course explained in the pattern !)
construction : the sweater is knit in the round, top down.

dimensions of the finished sweater : 
small / medium : chest width 58cm [22.85"] / length front 64cm [25.22"] – back 66cm [26"] / sleeve length 56cm [22.06"]
medium / large : chest width 64cm [25.22"] / length front 66cm [26"] – back 68cm [26.79"] / sleeve length 56cm [22.06"]

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
