Alley Collar Pattern

Pattern Details









Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Pattern Description:

This collar takes the great aspects of small-project knitting and runs with them. It pairs just one skein of a luscious wool/alpaca/silk chunky yarn in a bold teal color with a simple but dramatic slip-stitch pattern to make a warm and stylish accessory for any occasion. Additional personalization is added with two interesting buttons. This would be a great gift project!

Why the "Alley" collar? The stitch pattern is adapted from the "Bricks" two-color slipstitch pattern from Barbara Walker's A Treasury of Knitting Patterns, and the narrow strip of scarf made me think of the narrow space between two brick buildings.
