    I am wondering how you would add a turtle neck neckline to these sweaters?

      Bottom-up is pretty simple, just keep working your ribbing (maybe decrease a few extra sts at the neckline), Top-down I would do a provisional cast on and pick up and knit the turtleneck last.

    Trying to purchase Strange Brew hard cover book! Sold out everywhere – perhaps a second printing? lol!
