If your needles are ready to go faster than we can say “sweater weather,” cast on for our Up-and-Over Turtleneck, the perfect sweater for apple picking, leaf peeping, and trail blazing! You’ll start at the back bottom hem, knit up to the top of the shoulders, then over to the front and down to the front bottom hem. Once you’ve gone “up and over,” you’ll seam the sides and sleeves, then pick up the collar and cuffs to knit them in the round… Done! A beautiful pattern calls for a beautiful yarn or, in this case, two beautiful yarns. We used a strand of our earthy and sumptuous Understory with a strand of billowy mohair-silk Tussock. It’s a winning combination, creating a classic heather with a halo so lovely it practically glows! To learn more about materials, gauge, and finished sizes, just click product details, above.
