A classic long sleeved chunky turtleneck in stocking stitch. This is a drop shoulder design with fully-fashioned detailing available in multiple sizes.

Rothbury is a great blank classic body to get creative with. Use a hero yarn; add your own creative flair, experiment with colour blocking, fairisle or intarsia pattern work. The body has been designed with 4 inches of positive ease, however If you want a more roomy fit go up a size or two from your usual size.
