the wool : it is the biches & bûches "le gros lambswool", a natural and 100% lambswool from scotland. the other one is our petit silk & mohair quality (75% kid mohair + 25% silk from italy). the knitting needles are some circular 6mm / UK / US + 7mm / UK / US - which you can find in our tool shop !

construction : the sweater is knit in reverse stockinette stitch for the body and stockinette stitch for the sleeves, the body is knit flat, bottom up, and the sleeves are knit in the round, top down. the sweater is knit 2 threads held together.

small : chest width 54cm [21.3"] / length 58cm [22.9"] / sleeve length 48cm [18.9"]/ armhole 21cm [8.3"]

large : chest width 66cm [26"]/ length 62cm [24.4"]/ sleeve length 50cm [19.7"]/ armhole 24cm [9.5"]

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

The body of the sweater is worked back and forth using two threads of yarn held together.
The back and the front are worked in reversed stockinette stitch.
The shoulder seams are knit together, and the stitches for the sleeves are picked up at the armhole, and worked top-down, in the round, in stockinette stitch.
