The Hazel Neck is worked from the top down. First the back is worked, then the shoulders and then the front. At the end, stitches are picked up around the neckline opening for the turtleneck collar. The collar is folded double and knitted together on the wrong side.
Begin by knitting a swatch to find out which needle size will give you the correct gauge. Wash and block the swatch before measuring gauge.
If you choose to knit the Hazel Neck in a different yarn than the recommended, take care to choose a yarn where the rib “unfolds”/“opens up” after washing.
