Elegant cable panels twine up the body and sleeves on a ground of moss stitch for a knit that will keep your fingers pleasantly busy. Both masculine and feminine versions of the Vika turtleneck sport a boxy, oversized fit and an exaggerated drop shoulder shaped with increases to bisect the upper arm in a flattering way. The sleeves fall to knuckle length for a cozy, casual look.

Pattern includes sizing for both His and Hers.
