This mock turtleneck sweater is worked side to side in a lofty brioche stitch that combines yarnovers and slipped stitches to knit up thick and fast. The sweater is worked from the left sleeve cuff to the right, and the ribbed border at the bottom of the sweater is added after the body is completed. No need to block the soft-spun merino wool; the oversize stitches knit easily into shape, so this warm casual classic will be finished in no time.
