Olive Turtleneck - English

€5
Olive Turtleneck is the top down sister pattern to our popular Olive Sweater (as well as Olive Cardigan for kids). It features a ribbed turtleneck that compliments the allover lace patterning. Worked with 1 strand of our fingering-weight yarn held together with 2 strands of Silk Mohair, this turtleneck boasts the soft, cloud- like texture of our other Olive patterns.

Olive Turtleneck is worked seamlessly and in the round, beginning with the ribbed neckband, and continuing with the raglan-construction yoke. Then sleeve stitches are held aside, to be finished after the body is completed. Ribbed edges finish the sleeves and the body.
