I used Caron Cakes for this sweater and, to me, it gave the turtleneck a 70s vibe. I used 3 Caron Cakes for a size small, but this is because I made the stripes on the body and both sleeves match. I didn’t really need 3, but it was worth it to have the stripes match.

  1. Hello. I am working on this project, but when I work the foundation dc for the first row of the turtleneck using a J-hook, it’s coming out very small (like the size that would fit a doll head). I just want to be sure that the first row should really only have 42 stitches. Are you using the regular Caron Cakes or the Caron Chunky Cakes for this project? Thank you.

    1. Hi! Yes the numbers are correct. If it’s too small keep going up a hook size until it fits you 🙂 then go back down when the pattern suggests
