The September Sweater Junior is worked from the top down in brioche stitch. First the back yoke is worked back and forth with increases at both ends of the work. Then stitches are picked up and knitted for the shoulders, which are worked separately and then joined to form the front yoke. At the bottom of the armhole, the back and front yoke are joined to form the body, which is worked in the round to the hem. After this, stitches are picked up and knitted along the armholes for the sleeves, which are worked in the round on a short circular needle and shaped with decreases. Finally, stitches are picked up and knitted along the neckline and a rib neck edge is worked. The neck edge is folded double and sewn down on the inner side of the sweater. The September Sweater Junior has almost no finishing except for the neck edge which requires sewing.
Knit a swatch before beginning the project to check if the recommended needle size gives you the correct gauge. Take care when measuring the gauge of your swatch, as brioche stitch is difficult to measure correctly because it is so stretchy – take all measurements more than once.
Find a video of the brioche knitting technique on www.petiteknit.com.

Note that brioche stitch will expand slightly width-wise with wash and wear. For this reason, you should expect your September Sweater Junior will grow approx. 4-6 cm 1½-2¼ inches in circumference with wear compared to the bust measurement given at the top of the pattern.
