It’s been nearly a year since the last Woolful Knitalong and what a year it’s been. As we embark on these cozy wool filled seasons, it felt like the perfect time to celebrate with a special year-long knitalong, inspired by one of my favorite new companies, Biches & Bûches.
If you haven’t already listened to the story behind the mother-daughter company Biches & Bûches, you can listen here. Their natural aesthetic strikes such a strong chord with me, the designs, the fiber and the photography.
I’ve chosen to knit their no. 3 pullover, but here are some of my other favorites…
no. 1 pullover
n0. 5 pullover
no. 17 pullover
no. 30 shawl
no 43. hat
no. 50 pullover
no. 56 mittens
And here are the details…
How: To participate in this knitalong you can do so by: knitting a Biches & Bûches design/kit OR knitting with Biches & Bûches yarn. It’s up to you, so go take a look at bichesetbuches.com and find your yarn or kit.
When: November 1st, 2016 This is a year long knitalong. Take 3 months, take a year!
What: Prizes and such will be given throughout the year, including Biches & Bûches and Woolful yarn and kits, and more. We’ll also be sharing special behind the scenes and stories with Biches & Bûches, and some fun design collaborations over the year.
Where: Make sure to post photos of WIPs and finished projects on Instagram or on the Knitalong Ravelry page so we can all follow along. Use hashtag #woolfulxbichesKAL. Post on your blog and share as well, just make sure to link back to this blog post. We can’t wait to see!
So what are you going to knit? Share in the comments!
I’ve been digging around for about half an hour, but still haven’t figured out if these patterns only come as part of a kit or are available individually for purchase — I absolutely fell in love with so many of them and would love to take part in the KAL, but the kits are a bit out of my price range. Lovely KAL idea!
I’m going to attempt wrap #44. I’ve only made a hat but thuscwrsp is so pretty I’m going to give it a go!
Hope to see so much more from Biches&Buches, best of luck:)!
Ah I thoroughly enjoyed the interview and their aesthetics <3
I am joining and knitting a no 4 version for my husband!
I’m joining in with the no. 36 shawl. I really like this one a lot and was happy to find out that Caroline from B&B got started with her knitting with this one. As the KAL is going to last for a year – which is great – I do hope to knit more from Biches et Buches because their aesthetics is great and, having listened to the podcast, I also got very fond of the B&B team too.
I ordered my kit last night…I don’t remember the specific name….it’s the romantic shawl in cream, pinks, and reds!
Absolutely in. Kit #46 for me
I have never joined a knitalong before so I may need some help to get started. I have the LOS Pullover pattern, my needles, and yarn so I am ready to get started. Please advise me on how to get started.
I have needed a reason to knit this pullover and now in. Another great interview. Thank you !
I am debating on whether to cast in for a finished measurement of 36.75 or 41 inch bust circumference. I wear a medium women’s most of the time. How roomy is this sweater meant to be when finished?
So cool to hear this inspiring story from a compatriot (I am also from the Dolomites area in Italy!) and as for the KAL I would definitely go for the little red hat with the colored dots…
Just found your blog! and placed my order for a # 1 sweater kit! Look forward to the journey this knitalong will take us on!
