the no. 1, astrid's favorite, and one of our best-sellers. elegant, with a traditional nordic feeling to it. the sweater is worked flat in four pieces and sewn together. for the advanced beginner who knows the fair-isle knitting technique for the borders. it is matching the biches & bûches no. 56, our winter mittens kit from the accessories. so many amazing color combinations possible. the one in the photographs is the turquoise & beige combo.

we have created 4 different color-combos that you can see on the yarn photos :
01_ turquoise + beige
02_ very dark grey + off white
03_ blue grey + very light pink
04_ dark burgundy grey + white (the burgundy looks a bit darker on the photo than it is for real)
05_ you can also choose your own two colors and create your custom colors ! then all you gotta do is have a look at all our "le petit lambswool" yarn, and fill out the box at the bottom of the page !

the wool : it is the biches & bûches le petit lambswool, a pure lambswool from scotland, of a beautiful natural quality. astrid knit the sweater with needles 2,5mm / UK 12,5 / US 1,5 and 3mm / UK 11 / US 2,5 - which can find in our tools shop.

how to determine your size : take a sweater from your wardrobe that you love and measure its dimensions. it may not have the exact same shape, but it will give you an idea of the size to choose. the biches & bûches designs are intended loose, we suggest choosing a size a bit bigger than smaller ! <3
