Rumo is all about direction. Constructed sideways in modular pieces, the cardigan is knit from the sides towards the centre four times over, using the reversibility and texture of garter stitch to its advantage. The sleeves are knit in the round and set in, creating a sleek and comfortable cardigan.
Gauge (after blocking): 17 stitches and 36 rows = 10 cm / 4" in garter stitch
Construction: Rumo is knit sideways in 4 modular sections, from the side seams towards the centre back and front. The left and right back pieces are knit identically from the side seams to the centre back where they are joined with a Modified 3 Needle Bind-Off. The fronts are picked up from the side seams and knit identically towards the shoulder. The fronts are widened with triangular shaped extensions using short rows. Stitches are picked up around the neck and the lapel is knit in one piece. The sleeves are knit bottom-up in the round, and set into the armholes.
