The warm and comfortable collar is an accessory that fits under jackets to shield from the cold. It is light and keeps the shoulders and neck warm and is convenient even when worn indoors. Wearing the collar is as addictive as wearing anything knitted from wool.
This pattern is designed for einrúm E+2 yarn, E+4 yarn or L+2 yarn. The border for the perpendicular slit is made first and put aside. The collar is worked flat and snap fastening buttons are sewn onto the button band.
The lovely pattern booklet includes instructions in English, Icelandic and Danish. We love the built in needle gauge!
One size collar that can be altered with by changing needle size. Length is 32cm if knitted with L yarn, and 40cm if knitted with E yarn.
