Pattern Description from Knit So Fine: “For those of you who like a little something to wear under a suit jacket, here’s a turtleneck that provides warmth without bulk. The yarn, a lightweight blend of kid mohair and silk, is used double to make an opaque body (no to mention that it knits up faster when double!) and single on large needles for a sheer trim on the lower body, cap sleeves, and neck. the result is a demure top that also looks great by itself.”
