Biches & Bûches

Afterparty

2 items left

by Astrid Troland

Afterparty first appeared in issue 6 of Laine Magazine. A seamless bottom-up knit it is worked in stocking stitch in the round; first the body and then the sleeves until the underarms. The yoke is then worked featuring a simple colourwork pattern in two colours. The sweater has a slight A-line shape.

The original sample was knit in Biches & Bûches Le Cashmere & Lambswool, Le Petit Lambswool can be easily substituted for this yarn as they worked to the same gauge.

how to determine your size: you can take your favourite 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 the smaller size, and the biches & bûches designs are actually not intended to be worn tight.
