Knitted Mock Turtleneck Pullover

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®


In pattern on larger needles, 11 sts = 2 inches; 12 rows = 2 inches. 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


PATTERN (Multiple of 12 sts, plus 2)
Row 1 (RS)
P 2, work (k 10, p 2) across.
Row 2
K 2, (p 10, k 2) across. Rep these 2 rows for pattern.


With smaller straight needles, cast on 110 (122-134) sts. Work in stockinette st (k 1 row, p 1 row) for 6 rows to form rolled edge.

Ribbing: Next row (RS) P 2, work (k 2, p 2) across.

Row 2 K 2, (p 2, k 2) across. Rep these 2 rows until ribbing measures 3 inches, ending with WS row. Change to larger straight needles and work in pattern until 27 inches from beg.

Last row Bind off first 37 (43-49) sts, work in pattern until there are 36 sts on right needle, place these center 36 sts on a holder for back neck, bind off last 37 (43-49) sts.

Work same as for back until piece measures 25 inches from beg, ending with WS row.

Shape Neck Work in pattern across first 48 (54-60) sts, attach another yarn and work center 14 sts, place these 14 sts on a holder for front neck, work remaining 48 (54-60) sts. Working each side with its separate yarn, at each neck edge, bind off 3 sts once, 2 sts every other row 3 times, then dec 1 st every other row twice. Work even on 37 (43-49) sts on each side until front measures same as back to shoulder. Bind off all sts on each side.

With smaller straight needles, cast on 34 (38-42) sts. Work rolled edge and ribbing as for back, ending ribbing with RS row. Change to larger straight needles. P 1 row and inc 16 (12-20) sts evenly spaced across row (50 (50-62) sts). Work in pattern for 4 (2-6) rows. Keeping pattern as established, inc 1 at beg and end of next row, then every 3 rows 24 (26-24) times (100 (104-110) sts), working added sts in pattern. Work even until sleeve measure 18 inches from beg or length desired. Bind off all sts loosely.

Sew shoulder seams.

Neckband On RS, attach yarn and, with circular needles, start at left shoulder seam to pick up and k 96 (100, 100) sts around neck edge, including sts from holders. Work in rnds of p 2, k 2 ribbing for 3 inches. Work in stockinette st (k each rnd) for 6 rnds for rolled edge. Bind off.

I am glad that you still have this pattern. I made this sweater years ago and it got lost somehow....I plan to make another and found it to be a very nice looking sweater
