Victoria sweater


The designer of the Victoria sweater is the amazing Erika Wärn, who wrote a pattern where she holds your hand throughout the project!
This is how Erika describes her pattern;
Victoria Sweater is a seamless, top-down brioche (patent knit) sweater with fine transitions between brioche and garter stitch.
The fit is classic, with extra room over the bust/chest. The raglan pattern creates a graphic detail on the torso and under the sleeves the straight stitches create the cone shape of the sleeve.
The sweater ends with either a straight brioche or an alternative ending with a fun and simple brioche pattern along the hips.

Knitting in plain or two-coloured brioche? Or why not go crazy and mix colors?
Want to add a neckline or cuffs? The jersey is designed to work both with and without.

XS, S, M (L, XL, 2XL) [3XL, 4XL, 5XL] with body chest measurements of 74, 84, 94 (104, 114, 125) [135, 145, 155] cm.

Yarn requirements

800, 900, 1000 (1100, 1200, 1350) [1450, 1600, 1700] meters, total of 2, 3, 3 (3, 3, 4) [4, 4, 5] balls of fingering/sock yarn, 400m/100g. The yarn consumption is calculated for a three-quarter length tapered sleeve.

ATTENTION! If working with two colors, keep in mind that this means 1, 1.5, 1.5 (1.5, 1.5, 2) [2, 2, 2.5] skeins of each color A & B.

The amount of yarn may vary depending on your choice of yarn. If you choose a different yarn, you may end up with more yarn than
specified quantities.

16 stitches brioche = 10 cm after blocking. The knitting strength affects the result, both in terms of size and yarn consumption.

Knitting needles
Size 3.0 mm (or equivalent to get the right knitting strength) on cable. Good cable lengths to have on hand are 40/60/80/100 mm. Start with the shortest cable and increase as needed.
Sleeves are best worked with a magic loop, otherwise use your super short circular needle or double pointed needles of the same size.

Use knitting needles size 2.75 mm for neckline and cuffs if you choose to knit it.

4 markers, extra cables for resting stitches, a darning needle for attaching yarn ends and a tape measure.
