Turtle Dove II is nearly identical to the original Turtle Dove sweater except that it is knit at a tighter gauge. It is a loose, raglan-style sweater with a turtleneck and a modern silhouette. Knit from the top-down with optional short-rows to raise the back of the neck slightly, the entire sweater is knit in the round so there is no seaming at all. There are two options for finishing the body - a simple rolled hem or a twisted rib split-hem. Turtle Dove II is knit with Drops AIR and, like the original, it is light and warm and incredibly soft!

Some people prefer a closer fit; do not be afraid to select an option that provides somewhat less than the suggested ease according to your own preferences.
