Hummelo

BY MARTHA WISSING

A modern cardigan knit in a simple textured stitch pattern, Hummelo transitions beautifully from casual wear with jeans and a tee, to a more dressy summer jacket.  Featuring curled angled fronts, a split hem and longer back, it is knit flat and seamed and uses 3-needle bind off and German short row techniques.  The drop sleeves are picked up from the body and knit down to the desired length.  Offering a relaxed and forgiving fit, the pattern is available in two sizes, to fit bust 81-96.5, 106.5-122 cm (32-38, 42-48″).  The sample shown used a Cotton/Rayon/Alpaca/Nylon/Wool blend, but we think it would look smashing in our soft and smooth Joie de Vivre DK, wool/cotton blend.
