Comfy, classic Narwhal

DSCN7314

I chose this pattern from Brooklyn Tweed’s latest collection because it seemed simple, classic, and comfy – something that I could easily throw on with a pair jeans in just about any situation.  Plus, it gave me an opportunity to knit an entire garment from BT’s marled yarns, which I think knit up beautifully in this basic turtleneck.

Pattern:  Meyer by Veronica Avery

Yarn:  Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (8 skeins in colorway Narwhal)

Needles:  US 7s and US 6s (for ribbing) – as usual, I had to go down a needle size to get gauge

Size:  39 1/2″ – theoretically, this should give me about 2 1/2″ of ease, which seems perfect for a cozy turtleneck that I want to fit comfortably, but not too oversized.

My only issue with the FO is that I didn’t block it very aggressively, so it’s not quite as long as I would like it to be; I think that can be cured by another blocking, but I decided to wear it for a while first and see how I feel about the length once it’s been out of my closet a few times.  I can always re-block it when I need to wash it, I suppose . . .
