The Chainette Turtleneck is one of my favourite designs that I created using one of my favourite store-bought sweaters as the inspiration. The store-bought sweater was a grey, oversized, textured, turtleneck sweater, and I created my own hand handmade version based on the exact shape by working a few rows and laying my work over top to see if it lined up or not. If it didn't match, I would rip out and start again.
This sweater is designed to have a wide fit in the bust and gradually become more fitted as the sleeves are worked to the wrists which I find to be a really flattering fit for all body types. The deep raglan increases allow for a really comfortable, roomy fit. The bracelet-length sleeves end a few inches shy of the wrist, and the sweater length ends at mid-hip. Instructions are included to adjust for a longer sweater that extends to the lower-hip or past the bum, as well as where to place extra rounds for extended sleeves.
