Reunite is a timeless piece that you’ll be wearing for many years to come. Decked with classic details – crew neck, set-in sleeves, crowd-pleasing cables – you will treasure this knit as much as you’ll enjoy knitting it. Reunite’s secret is the abundance of plain knit rows, which conspire to create a textured cable cardigan that’s also a relaxing project.
And if you’d prefer to make a sweater, you’re covered: hop over to the Unite sweater to see what you’ll get!
Starting at the hem with a rib, this basket weave and cable cardigan features a classic set-in sleeve construction. Next, the Fronts, Back and Sleeves are knitted separately – making this a really portable project – before being seamed together. Full photo and video tutorials are included to walk you through the finishing process for this sweater. Lastly, the neckband stitches are then picked up and a simple garter stitch band is knitted on, followed by a garter stitch button and buttonhole band.
The sample was knitted with Something to Knit with Aran. Unfortunately this yarn is now discontinued. However, any Aran yarn with a stocking stitch/stockingette tension of 18 sts x 24 rows to 10cm will be an excellent substitute.
