View Full Version : FO: Perfect Turtleneck

Here is a beautiful pattern that you can try on as you go! It is worked top down. Very easy and quick!
And for those that have a full figure, this one is a winner!

Mods: I chose to do a 3" collar rather than a 5". I kept a very tight tension (obtaining a dense fabric for the bust area), until I came to the waistline. Instead of switching back to the smaller needle for the waist, I continued with the larger needle, use less tension.

The pictures were taken before it was blocked. I had to put it away because I did not want my niece to see it yet..lol. Hopefully, I will be able to bring it back out this weekend and block the beauty!

Pattern: Perfect Periwinkle Turtleneck Tube Vest
Book: Fitted Knits, by Stefanie Japel
Required Yarn: Cascade 220

Techniques: Knitting in the round, Lifted Increases, 3 x 3 ribbing
