Transitioning into winter can be a time of unpredictable weather and finding clothes that are both cute and comfortable is sometimes a challenge.  This turtleneck was inspired by a similar sweatshirt I borrowed from my mom that I found to be extremely cozy and practical in my cold weather wardrobe.



I wanted to design my own with a looser, almost cowl neck and a fitted bottom and sleeve to add a bit of control to the oversize fit.  I chose to use thinner, lush fleece instead of regular fleece for the drape and stretch.  I used fabric I found at Joann Fabrics but have linked two fabrics below.  The grey is the same style that I used and the ivory is another option that I think looks pretty.

 

When ordering or buying this fabric, I would purchase two yards to keep it safe.  Whenever I make turtlenecks I tend to underestimate the amount of fabric it uses for the neck.  Be warned that this fabric is very slick and wants to move while you are working with it so use lots of pins!

For cutting and assembly, follow the diagrams below.

I hope that you make your own lush fleece turtleneck and enjoy it just as much as I enjoy mine!  This pattern would make a great gift for winter and could be used for all ages!

Let me know if you have any questions, I would love to help you out.

With Love, Kaitlin
