This stunning Dusty Lilac Knit Turtleneck Pattern manages to meld past sweater trends with the present, creating a classic design that women of all generations will love. This pullover sweater knitting pattern will teach how to knit a sweater with a turtleneck from the bottom-up, and is simple enough for mid-level knitters to complete without a problem and for beginning knitters to learn something new. While we love the muted purple color of the yarn used, we believe any desaturated color would look equally as timeless (and lovely) with this sweater.
