Romex is a raglan pullover featuring a cable panel on the right side of the body, both front and back. Ribbed details on the top of the sleeves echo the stretches of plain ribbing between cable twists. Designed to be worn with 1-3” of positive ease, Romex has a flattering, slightly A-line shape for a comfortable, everyday sweater.

Worked top-down in one piece, Romex utilizes charts to integrate the raglan increases in the ribbing pattern before flowing into the cable panels. You will need to be comfortable reading multi-size charts and be acquainted with top-down sweater construction.

Elemental Affects Cormo is a high-twist worsted-spun yarn with an incredible amount of stretch and resilience. Keep this in mind when considering substitutions.
