Knitted Wool Collar

Only one week left of my winter break, so I better get busy showing off what I have done recently. First I'd like to share this warm and cozy knitted wool collar that I made...

The pattern can be found over at Noble Knits as well as the yarn. It's called Rachel's Slow Curve Collar and it uses the short row knitting technique to get that lovely curl at the top. The suggested yarn is Wisdom's Poems Chunky yarn which is what I used in the Ultraviolet colorway. I just love how it turned out! It is so cozy and warm, and does not add any bulk under my winter coat because it is just a collar! This project only took me about three evenings to complete so it is a great project for instant gratification!

One note I must share with you is that the pattern calls for one skein of the Poems chunky yarn, so I ordered one skein with the pattern. When I ran out of yarn, I still had the last three rows to finish, so I had to order another skein and wait for it to arrive. Luckily Noble Knits has super fast service, so I was finishing this project just a few days later.

I picked up that awesome shawl pin from my local yarn shop, The Merry Weaver, right here in Leominster.

Next up will be my paper embroidery project that I showed last week only now it's all finished! And then a crocheted afghan that is coming along slowly, but finally starting to look like something worth showing off!

Happy Stitching!
