“Stranded colorwork always seems so appropriate for the Winter season to me. The patterns created by the two colors are so festive, brightening up those late winter days that can be so dreary. The floats on the underside create an incredibly warm fabric making this turtleneck the perfect sweater for those sub-zero temperatures!” − Michele Wang
