“Turtlenecks are something of a uniform for me during the colder months, and I’m often compelled to add more of them to my collection. What makes this design so special to me is the perfect blend of fabric and shape − an updated twist on the classic ribbing of a fisherman’s sweater with a modern cropped hemline, flattering waist shaping, and extra long collar and sleeves.”− Julie Hoover

* Garment is worked in the round, without seams, from the bottom up to the turtleneck collar.
