VesterbyCrea.No.03 is a stylish turtleneck with a tight fit. The model is knit from top to bottom. At the beginning of the garter, knit the neckline and then shoulder slit. The garter is knit around first in both rib pattern and plain knit with dec. Body is also knit in rib pattern and ends with elastic closure. Sleeve edges are picked up in the existing stitches and knitted around the rib before ending with elastic closure. The turtleneck is therefore assembly-free.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN
It is vitally important to check your tension (gauge) before starting as working to the wrong tension (gauge) will mean your item will not be the size shown and could result in yarn being leftover, or more yarn is required. Before beginning, knit a tension (gauge) swatch at least 12 cm square and measure your tension (gauge). If there are more sts and rows than stated, try again using thicker needles. If there are fewer sts and rows than stated, try again using thinner needles. The size guide is a turtleneck with a tight fit. Calculate a movement space of approx. 5-7 cm measured around the chest.
