Savannah Sweater ENGLISH


This pattern is in English.

The Savannah Sweater is worked top down with brioche. First the neckline is made, which is folded over and knitted together and then the stitches is divided into saddle shoulders, back- and front piece. These tree parts are put together at the end to create the body.

The body is slightly bulky and is worked in the round with brioche and is finished with a broad ribbing edge, which is bound off with Italian bind off. The sweater has balloon sleeves, that ends in a long tight ribbing edge.

Savannah Sweater – a feminine brioche sweater

Size: XS (S) M (L) XL

Size guide: Savannah Sweater should have a positive ease of approx. 10-15 cm relative to your chest/bust measurements. The sweater has a tight ribbing at the bottom, that fits closely to the body and therefore you should calculate with a little extra length, so that the brioche part on the body of the sweater can bulk a little.

Gauge: 16 stitches x 21 rows with brioche on needle 4,5 mm = 10 x 10 cm. Notice, that each row of brioche counts for two rows = 42 rows.

Suggested needles: Circular needle 4,5 mm (40 and/or 80 or 100 cm) and circular needle 3,5 mm (60 or 80 cm).
