This is a collection of two cute and fast collar patterns knit in fingering weight yarn.
The Peter Pan Collar is a cute way to give an old sweater a new and quirky look. It's knit flat in one piece and shaped with short rows. Garter stitch prevents any rolling and hides uneven short row pick ups if you are new to this technique.
The Lace Collar is not only sweet and detachable, it is also made exactly to the circumference you want. The lace collar is knit sideways exactly to your measurements in two pieces and then joined at the center back.
Peter Pan Collar: 22 sts x 50 rows = 10 cm (4) square in garter stitch
Lace Collar: Gauge is not crucial for this pattern as it is worked to your measurements.

I learned knitting, crochet and sewing from my mum when I was young. I kept on going from there and soon invented my own projects. From making up my own patterns to writing them down and grading them it was only a small step. And here we are. :)
