Bulky, 450-600 yards
(sample is knit with Morehouse Merino Bulky)
Circular #15, 24" or longer; set of double-pointed
#15 for turtleneck
2½ stitches = 1 inch over stockinette stitch
Knit 1 stitch / purl 1 stitch rib pattern
Body: cast on 82 (90, 98) stitches. Join and work 4 rounds in knit 1 purl 1 rib pattern.
Continue in stockinette stitch pattern (knit each round) until piece measures 14” to 16”
(desired length to underarm). Now divide stitches in half for armhole—41 (45, 49) stitches each for front and back.
Back: continue on first half of stitches for back. Knit to middle of round
(from now on you’ll be working back and forth on first half of stitches). *Turn, then
knit 2 stitches together, knit 1 stitch, then purl to last 3 stitches, knit next stitch,
and knit the last 2 stitches together. Turn and knit row. Repeat from *. You’ll have 37
(41, 45) stitches remaining after armhole decreases. Work 24 rows as follows:
knit on front (right side); on wrong side, knit the first 2 stitches, then
purl to last 2 stitches, and knit those 2 stitches. After completing 24 rows, put stitches on holding needle.
Front: work front side same as back. Start with 4 rows of armhole decreases, then
continue same as for back, but work 12 rows instead of 24 rows.
Neck decreases on front: knit 14 (16, 18) stitches, then knit middle 9 stitches and
put those 9 stitches on stitch holder, knit to end of row. Continue working on right front
(maintain pattern: knit the first 2 stitches on wrong-side row). At neck edge bind off
1 stitch 4 times—10 (12, 14) stitches remaining. Work 2 more rows, then bind off with
same number of stitches from back (using three-needle bind-off).
Repeat for left front, reversing neck decreases.
Turtleneck: put stitches remaining on back and stitches on stitch holder
from front on double-pointed needles. Pick up stitches between the 2 needles
along neck decreases. Work 18 rounds in knit 1 purl 1 rib pattern,
then bind off very loosely.
