Notes: Durumi is a yoked sweater, worked seamlessly from the top down. Knitting starts with the folded stand-up collar, followed by short rows that are worked back and forth to create a slightly higher back neck. A 13-round deep stranded colourwork band using a third colour separates the two contrasting colours of the sweater. When reaching the fnal yoke depth, sleeves are placed on hold to work the body top-down to the hem. Sleeve stitches are then picked up again to work the sleeves top-down in rounds to the cuffs. Finally, the lining of the folded stand-up collar is sewn down to the inside.
