The main feature of the sweater is the stitch pattern, a combination of half-brioche and garter stitch.

Level: intermediate to experienced.

  1. Almost universal: make several in different yarns to get a different mood; more casual or more formal; oversized or slightly loose; male or female.
  2. Pattern recipe
  3. Customizable
  4. Top down, seamless, try on as you go
  5. Loose fit or oversized, it is up to you

The recipe provides a detailed description of the construction and describes characteristics of brioche stitch fabric.

For textured stitch like this one, I would recommend non-bulky yarn. Fingering weight (many sock yarn would do) is fine or you can put together thin mohair and laceweight woool. For a lighter version, try cotton or cotton-linen blend (50 g/130 m and thinner).

As brioche “eats up” yarn, you would need more than for a usual sweater.
