The Terrazzo Neck is worked from the back, up and over the shoulder, and down the front. An opening is worked for the head, along the edge of which the stitches for the turtleneck collar are picked up and knitted. The Terrazzo Neck is shaped as a square on the back and as a trapezoid in the front.
In the pattern, the Italian cast-on and Italian bind-off techniques are used.
