Biches & Bûches

No.1 Sweater Pattern

the no. 1: astrid's favorite, and a best-seller. 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. so many amazing colour combinations possible.
By Astrid Troland

techniques : knit stitch + purl stitch + fair-isle knitting + the rest is knit one color at a time + picking up stitches + 3-needle cast off (for the shoulders) + sewing using mattress stitch
construction : the sweater is knit flat, beginning at the lower hand, and we knit with one color at a time.

"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. biches & bûches designs are intended loose, we suggest choosing a size a bit bigger than smaller !"
