Caribou Trails Turtleneck -- Sweater #9

I L.O.V.E. turtlenecks.  Its a serious kind of love affair.  But whenever I looked on Ravelry for a pattern, I just couldn't find what I was looking for.  I wanted something thick and warm but with a little extra "something".  Caribou Trails is what I came up with!

Caribou Trails is a top down turtleneck sweater with a twist…literally! A single cable runs down both sides of this sweater for a flattering look. A comfy, cozy fall & winter staple, this knits up quickly using bulky yarn.
