No sweater collection would be complete without a turtleneck. Like a moth to a flame, I am constantly drawn to the polished look of high necklines. There is a certain warmth and security that comes with a high neckline, an inherently sophisticated addition to any garment. Bringing style and function to this simple yoke sweater, the turtleneck radiates a classic elegance; like a fashion-forward nod to the past.
With its relaxed fit and slim, tapered sleeves, Vintage Moon can be comfortably worn under a parka, sheltering your neck from harsh winter winds. This sweater lands where the thigh begins (though you can adjust the length to suit your preference), and the sleeves extend slightly past the wrist for additional protection from the cold. This design feels warm and grounding, while adding a touch of poise to any outfit.
Substitute The Hook Nook Yummy with any bulky weight, category #5 yarn or worsted weight, category #4 yarn that matches gauge. Yummy feels lighter than most other category #5 yarns; much like an aran or heavy worsted weight.
Main gauge hook: Size U.S. K/10½ (6.5 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge
Hook for cowl and sleeve cuffs: Size U.S. J/10 (6 mm) or hook that is 0.5 mm smaller than main gauge hook
