Charade Brioche KAL with Patty Lyons (2)
WEBS is excited to be the official yarn vendor for the next Patty Lyons knit-along / video sweater class:
Charade Brioche Video Sweater Class KAL (Knit-Along)
Charade Brioche is a build your own sweater adventure. This video class is suited to a variety of levels with two options!
This pattern comes in 10 sizes and with the video sweater class you get your pattern (fully written and charted) along with hours of video instruction on Brioche, and all your sweater skills. Even if you have never knit Brioche, Patty will guide you every step of the way. You even get videos on how to convert the pattern to work in the round!
Get the Customization Bundle! When you pair the sweater class with the customization unit you will find a ton of alterations waiting for you, while your customization spread sheet does all the math! You can work the larger trim motif in the pattern or the smaller alternative chart (not in pattern). You can work the Audrey Hepburn inspired stand up neck, or a wide short turtle neck, change the length, the sleeves, the neck, you name it.
You will be guided, based on your high chest measurement, to your base size with the cross-back, armhole depth, upper arm and cap set for you. From there you can tweak everything from the number of motifs (large or small) used at the hip and cuff, the fit of the waist and chest, the number of decreases to the waist front and back, the sleeve length, and more. It’s all up to you!
Not ready for customization? No problem, you can also knit the sweater as designed by following the pattern. You can always come back later and add the customization unit and grow your skills.

NOTE: You will be asked to sign up for a free account on Patty’s Education streaming platform.
How does a Video KAL (stands for Knit-Along) work?
As soon as you purchase your pattern you will get your pattern introduction and videos on sizing, yarn selection and gauge, as well as your schematic and materials information, so plenty of time to order your yarn, pick your size and start your swatching.
The video class will be hosted on Patty Lyons’s education platform. There will be discussion boards, quizzes and lots of help and interaction.
You will receive the whole pattern at once, on Oct 23, and people will be joining in all during the KAL, but to keep the fun of us all working together, the video tutorials will come out on a schedule.
- Sept 15: On sale/Intro pattern videos & tutorials
- Oct 23: FULL PATTERN RELEASE, Sweater body videos, sweater modifications & tutorials
- Nov 13: Sleeves, sweater modifications & tutorials
- Nov 20: Finishing videos, sweater modifications & tutorials
- Randomly drawn participation prizes awarded every other week, the sooner you cast on, the better chances to win!
- Dec 5: Grand prizes awarded
Join the KAL anytime…the video class info will stay live forever, and the video tutorials will never expire! More information about scheduling and KAL FAQ is available on PattyLyons.com.
When you purchase the class, you’ll create your free account on Patty’s education site. From there, you’ll find all your tools, pattern pdf, video and text tutorials. All content can be both streamed (to save room on your device) AND downloaded (to view off line!).
There are discussion threads for each part of the class so you can ask questions, and a community group to chat, share pictures and cheer each other on and enter for prize drawings!
For even more fun, Join Patty's Ravelry group for chat with other knitters.
