It’s a pattern that keeps you interested the whole time without being too hard so you can still watch TV! So if you’re ready to take your crochet skills to the next level, let’s get started!

Construction & Fit

This crochet turtleneck is written to have 4-6 inches of positive ease. It’s made in 2 separate panels: 2 identical body panels that are seamed together. Once seamed, the sleeves are worked in rounds shoulder to the cuffs. I love this method of crochet design because it allows you to repeatedly try on the sleeves so you get the perfect sleeve length.


For this crochet turtleneck, I used Sewrella Yarn Cashmere DK in the Charlotte colorway. This color is a part of their Fall Tonal Collection, so it’s roughly offered from September through November every year. It’s an 80/10/10% of superwash merino wool/cashmere/nylon blend. This cashmere blend yarn was an absolute dream to work with because it didn’t split and was super soft. Not only is cashmere yarn known for its superior quality and durability, but it also boasts a unique texture that sets your crochet projects apart (check out some of the benefits of cashmere yarn here!).

Stitches & Crochet Hook

It will probably shock no one when I say that what crochet hook I used for this project – a Furls Streamline Resin! These hooks are my absolute favorite and I use them for every single crochet project. I have a set I received about a year ago (Shout out to my parents for the amazing birthday gift!) and honestly there has been no looking back. These hooks are stunning and crocheting with them is a breeze because of the thick handles. Check out the post I did comparing different Furls crochet hooks here for more information!

The stitch used in this crochet turtleneck pattern is none other than the basketweave stitch! I love this stitch pattern because it looks so difficult, but is actually super easy! If you can do a double crochet stitch, then you can do the basketweave stitch! It’s a simple way to add gorgeous texture to your crochet project.

I hope you loved this cute & textured crochet turtleneck pattern! Be sure to stay tuned for lots more of your favorite crochet patterns!
