forgotten screen pattern unlock on Xperia Z3 plus running higher than Android version 5.0

i have set a new screen pattern and apparently remembered it incorrectly. 118 attempts later it's probably safe to assume I wont remember it - ever. Android device manager and Xperia protect wont override the screen lock - they tell me there is one in place so i don't need a new one.

I can't connect it to a pc as it is not seen as it is locked.

i really don't want to reset and wipe my data.

Is there a way around this problem?

Sony Xperia Z3 plus
I update as new updates come in - presumably current Nougat version running but not sure
