Knitted Double-Strand Turtleneck

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®


5 sts + 7 rows = 4" in St st.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


3-needle bind off: Put half of sts on spare needle, place 2 needles holding sts together, right sides together (wrong side will face out). Knit together one st from each needle; *knit together one st from each needle, pass first st worked over second to bind off*; rep from * to * across to last st. Cut working yarn and pull through last st to secure.


All pieces are worked with two strands of yarn held together throughout.


Cast on 27 (29, 31, 33, 35, 39) sts.
Row 1 (RS): *K 1, p 1; rep from * to last st, end k 1.
Row 2:*P 1, k 1; rep from * to last st, end p 1. Work in St st until piece measures 25 (25, 25, 26, 26, 26)" from beg. Place sts on spare needle or holder.


Work same as Back until piece measures 23 (23, 23, 24, 24, 24)" from beg, ending with a WS row.
Shape neck:Next row: K 10 (11, 12, 12, 13, 15)sts, place center 7 (7, 7, 9, 9, 9) sts on holder, attach second ball of yarn and k rem sts -- 10 (11, 12, 12, 13, 15) sts each side. Working both sides at the same time with separate balls of yarn, dec 1 st at each neck edge once -- 9 (10, 11, 11, 12, 14) sts rem each shoulder. Cont until piece measures same as Back. Work 3-needle bind off across 9 (10, 11, 11, 12, 14) right shoulder seam sts, bind off loosely across 9 (9, 9, 11, 11, 11) center Back neck sts, then leave Back and Front left shoulder sts on holders.


Cast on 13 (13, 13, 15, 15, 15) sts. Rep Rows 1 & 2 as for Back. Work in St st, inc 1 st at each end of second RS row, then every 4th row 6 more times -- 27 (27, 27, 29, 29, 29) sts. Work even until piece measures 18 (18, 18, 17, 17, 17)" or desired Sleeve length. Bind off loosely.


Neck Ribbing: With RS facing, pick up and k approx 23 (23, 23, 25, 25, 25) sts evenly along left Front neck, across center Front neck, along right Front neck edge and across Back neck. Work in k 1, p 1 rib for 3" or desired length for neck ribbing. Bind off very loosely. Work 3-needle bind off across Back and Front left shoulder sts. Sew neck ribbing seam. Mark 11 (11, 11, 12, 12, 12)" down from shoulder seams on Front and Back and sew Sleeves to body between markers. Sew side and Sleeve seams. Weave in ends. Note: To reduce bulk, sew seams 1/2 st in from edge.
