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.

In the same family, you will also find the sister patterns Olive Sweater (kids)Olive CardiganOlive Cardigan (kids)Olive Top and Olive Scarf.
