Astrid loves a very simple design, which should also be large, with in mind something she can wear everyday. An easy project to knit, a sweater to wear all the time. The hood is definitely bringing an original touch to the design, and as she says "I love hoods!". It's true that you can very often catch her hidden under a hood in the evening while she is knitting on the couch.
To knit with: The wool is our own Biches & Bûches Chunky. An amazing pure lambswool from Scotland, in a perfect scoured quality. We-love-it. A part from the hood! That one is knit with a skein of Worsted from Malabrigo, a gorgeous pure lambswool hand-dyed in Uruguay. The knitting needles are some circular 4mm/UK8/US6 and 4.5mm/UK7/US7 + 4mm double pointed needles for the lower part of the sleeves, but you can also just use your circular ones.
