Tweed and Rib Mock Turtleneck

This classic mock turtleneck is easy to knit up, but the three-color tweed really makes it stand out. If you’re new to this type of stitch pattern, don’t let it intimidate you – there are no tricky techniques to master – if you can knit, purl and slip stitches, you can do it! Choose from either dropped shoulders or set-in sleeves; both instructions are included.

This pullover is worked from the bottom up in pieces, then sewn together. The yoke pattern is worked with one single color at a time, slipping any stitches not worked in the color you are currently working with. This makes it easy to work color into your knitting without working with 2 colors at a time.

The slip stitch pattern is presented in written format.
