Rendezvous with Rauma is worked top-down and in the round. Two sets of short rows shape the neckline before the colourwork starts. After the yoke divide, a small chart is worked on the body and the remainder is completed in stocking stitch. The sleeves are put on hold while the body is worked, then worked last from the top-down, with the same chart as the body worked on the upper sleeve before shaping is started.
