Knit up in our 100% undyed Big Good Wool from the Andean highlands, our Big Brioche Turtleneck will keep you warm and cozy whether you’re shepherding sheep at high altitudes or just trying to get through winter with grace. In lofty brioche stitch, you work this sweater from the bottom up, front and back separately, then seam the two pieces together at the shoulders and collar. Pick up each sleeve and work it down flat, and finally, sew up the sleeve and side seams (leaving a little split hem detail at the bottom)… And ta da! Sized for chests from 30 to 64 inches, click Product Detail, above, for more information about materials, gauge, and sizes!
