There’s no overstating the importance of a flattering neckline when you’re hunting down the perfect top or dress for your body, so why not when you’re hunting for the perfect sweater? It’s easy to let your focus gear toward other areas, but the right neck shape can frame your face, create balanced proportions, and set the tone for your entire look — essentially making or breaking it.

These days, sweaters are available in all sorts of styles, with buttons down the front, called a “cardigan” sweater, or as a pullover, and with a variety of necklines. Few of the flattering necklines are:

MOCK TURTLE NECK

The mock turtleneck is a popular style, classic and beautiful. In the sweater above you can see how the neckline is narrow enough to lie flat against the neck, while still maintaining a comfortable fit. The mock turtleneck is a double-thick neckline, so that there are actually two layers of knitted fabric against the neck, folded over and stitched down.

STAND UP COLLAR

The stand-up collar, also called the “Jackie Kennedy collar”, is a modified version of a mock turtleneck neckline. It is higher, wider and shallower than a mock turtleneck, and instead of hugging the neck the way a mock turtleneck will do, it stands up and is away from the neck.

TURTLE NECK

The turtleneck is also a popular style. A true turtleneck is a single layer which can be worn folded over once, or twice, against the backdrop of the sweater. A standard turtleneck will be 4-6 inches long, depending on the size of the sweater, or can be custom knitted to be up to 11 inches long.

ROUND CREW NECK

The standard round crew neck, shown in the above photo, is designed to be wide enough to be non-constricting and deep enough to fit easily over the head. This is the type of round neckline found on most pullover sweaters.

V NECK

Anyone can look great in this universal neckline. The key to nailing the perfect V neck sweater ? Depth. A classic style, it also draws the eye in, balancing out broad shoulders and thick torsos, and lengthening short necks.

Washing

– Woolen knitted garments should be washed separately from other clothes and should not be presoaked
– While washing, it is desirable to use the special washing liquids intended for woolen and knitted products (that don’t contain bleaches)

Washing

 

Rinsing

– When rinsing the knit for the first time, water should be the same temperature, as while washing
– It is necessary to rinse carefully as the rest of washing liquid remaining in the product can spoil colour of the product while drying
– While rinsing the last time, it is necessary to add liquid that deletes static electricity

 

Drying

– The washed knit cannot be hung up and should be wringed out at first and wrapped in a towel to remove moisture
– The knitted woolen product should not be dried in immediate proximity from a radiator or under solar beams
– The dried up knit can be steamed at a distance of 10-15 sm. Never leave an iron on a knit

Drying

Pellets

– The formation of pellets is inevitable. You can remove it with a shaving machine tool without a sticky strip
– For this purpose, the product needs to be spread out on a rigid, smooth surface and shaved top-down

 

Storage

– The knitted garments should be stored together
– Use packages with special granules for smell and moisture absorption
– It is not recommended to hang up knitted products on hangers as they can get out of the shape
