Our knit necks!
We love crewnecks, and we've made it as easy as possible to get a great-looking neckline by notching the neckline where it meets the centre front, and both shoulder-seams. We found that the 'quartering method' doesn't often work in larger sizes, and there's a sew-along video showing our method on YouTube.
You can mix and match sizes between your turtle and the rest of the garment to get your perfect neck fit. The turtleneck comes as two inset pieces for you to tape to the front and back of your Hexham or Tarlee, so that you don't end up with a tiny scrap of paper that you've got to save should you want to make the other neckline again in the future.
Because it's half the height, the mockneck looks like a turtleneck that's been neatly tucked away. Here, I used the T6 size pattern piece for a rather roomy mockneck, but you could choose a smaller size and stop the cold air from getting in to your neck!
The mockneck is perfect for keeping the sun off your neck if you want a Tarlee rashvest like Leila's.
