this cardigan has a large collar and two front pockets and is one of my personal favorites. I so love its loose shape and narrow sleeves. a Chunky version of our colorful series, and with this dark grey as the main color, it is easy to match with casual wear or a more chic outfit. i am absolutely thinking about knitting one for myself in the dark grey version <3

we have created 4 different color combinations that you can discover on the photographs :
01_ dark grey brown + off-white (undyed wool)
02_ dark blue + beige

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
