The «Snug Turtleneck» is a cropped and loose sweater, worked with three strands of mohair yarn. It is very lightweight and has a relaxed fit, while still keeping you warm. The turtleneck-collar is designed to fit tightly around the neck, so it is worked twice as long as desired and sewn to the inner neckline to create a double-layered effect. Besides this seam, the sweater is worked in one piece, so there is no assembling required in the end. Starting from the bottom, the Snug Turtleneck is worked upwards and the shoulders will be woven together. The sleeves are worked by picking up stitches from the armhole and turn out to be quite narrow, so the slightly oversized fit of the body will be accentuated.
