Holli Yeoh | Sideways Turtleneck

Sideways Turtleneck

Holli Yeoh worked eye-catching textural details into her turtleneck, knitting the front and mullet-hem back side to side in broken fisherman’s rib. The set-in sleeves and shaped collar, which is picked up and worked in the round, are streamlined in traditional fisherman’s rib. Koigu Wool Designs’ ‘Kersti Merino Crepe’ packs a color punch. The front and back of this sweater are worked in broken fisherman’s rib, while sleeves and neck are worked in fisherman’s rib.
