 Ahh, the Brioche Honeycomb Sweater! I love this sweater. The luxurious feel of Misti Alpaca's Super Chunky combined with the dramatic sleeves makes a girl feel so chic!

This sweater is not for the passive knitter. The sizing is based on one size with notations on how to make adjustments using your gauge & your measurements for a more personal fit. There are also a few challenging techniques in the construction of this sweater that make it an intermediate project. Invisible or provisional cast on, brioche honeycomb stitch & kitchener stitch (or a 3 needle bind off option) are all used. If you're an advanced beginner and like a challenge this would be a good piece to challenge yourself with. 

So we've already talked about the yarn and you'll need @605-715 yds of it... that's between 11-13 skeins of Misti's Super Chunky.

A #17 circular needle at least a 29".
Gauge: 1.3sts = 1" in Brioche Honeycomb Stitch
Available as a PDF download. $6.50


  1. This is a beautiful sweater. I love the drape of the sleeves and stitch pattern. smit1014@bellsouth.net

  2. Does anyone know where I can get someone to knit this exact style for me? mary anne - mare319@gmail.com

  3. Gorgeous, but I can't find Misti Alpaca Super Chunky. Is it just the Chunky? I see no "Super" Chunky. The only one I find is 3.5 stitches per inch on #10 needles. Is it no longer being made?

    1. Unfortunately it is no longer being made. A good substitute is Lion's Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick or Magnum by Cascade. The Lion's Brand looks more like what the Misti Alpaca looked like. Hope this helps! Karen

    2. Oh this is beautiful sweater!! Hopefully I can buy the pattern soon and then the yarn.

I come from a family of sewers & knitters. My mom was an amazing artist who taught me valuable lessons in technique, craftsmanship and style. Most of my designs are worked from the top down and seamless with as little finishing possible. I like to include challenging techniques to keep it interesting but aesthetically like them clean and simple.
