More Boston Terrier Yarn Porn...  






Stella Bella Blue modelling a 70s-inspired Ribbed Turtleneck Retro Cable Sweater...








Ribbed Turtleneck

Granny Smith Green: ch 26, 25 sc, ch 1, turn, 25 sc, continue until 50 rows total.

Cable Sweater

**To attach Turtleneck to Cable Sweater:

Chocolate Brown: 50 sc around Ribbed Turtleneck; ch 3, 50 dc, turn, ch 3, 50 dc, turn, ch 3, 50 dc.

**Colour change:

Cut yarn, leaving a tail, and draw it all the way through the slip stitch to secure it. Join the new colour by drawing it through.

Teal Blue: turn, ch 3, 50 dc, turn, ch 3, 50 dc, turn, ch 3, 50 dc.

Repeat colour change, as directed above.

Caramel Brown: turn, ch 3, 50 dc, turn, ch 3, 50 dc, turn, ch 3, 50 dc.

Granny Smith Green: turn, ch 3, 50 dc, turn, ch 3, 50 dc, turn, ch 3, 50 dc.

Repeat from Chocolate Brown (x2, so each colour appears 3x)

With Granny Smith Green, sc all the way around; 33 + 1 + 50 + 1 + 33; turn ch 1.

**To make the leg opening:

12 sc, ch 9, sk 9, sc to the end of side; 1 sc, 50 sc, 1, sc, 12 sc, ch 9, sk9, sc to the end of side, turn, ch 1.

sc all the way around. 9 sc in each leg opening.

Join with slip stitch. Fasten off.



Basically, it's just a mini cable blanket with a ribbed turtleneck! The biggest hurdle is the leg opening... it has to be just right for the monster. :)
