About Cirro - The Pattern

Cirro is a romantic top-down sweater featuring a full lace yoke, cropped body and balloon sleeves. It's both super wearable (think high-waisted jeans!) and a statement piece at the same time.

It's designed by Valentina Cosciani in beautiful Biches & Bûches Le Petit Lambswool and Le Petit Silk Mohair for our Issue 6. The pattern includes 8 sizes, has been tech-edited and test knit, and contains a schematic.

About Biches & Bûches Le Petit Lambswool & Le Petit Silk & Mohair - The Yarn

For Cirro, you hold two beautiful yarns double: Biches & Bûches' Le Petit Lambswool and their Le Petit Silk & Mohair.

Le Petit Lambswool is a pure lambswool from a family-owned fiber mill in Scotland, envisioned and brought to life by the wonderful family behind Biches & Bûches, a fantastic yarn company based in France.

Le Petit Silk & Mohair is the best kind of fuzziness: A cloud-like ball of Silk Mohair yarn, perfect for pairing with Biches & Bûches Le Petit Lambswool!

What the Kit Includes

  • Enough yarn to make Cirro in your size in the original sample colors(Le Petit Lambswool in Blue Grey and Le Petit Silk & Mohair in Light Grey), including a little bit extra so that you can swatch comfortably without worrying about running out of yarn
  • The PDF pattern of Cirro (if you already have the pattern or our Issue 6, you can also purchase the kit without the pattern)
