Random Knitting – Just A Collar

When I’m undecided as to what to knit, I often turn to one of my vintage knitting books to find something to amuse me. My knitting today is part of a pattern called ‘Lace Stitch Jersey’ from the book, ‘Knitted Garments For All’.

My little sample was knitted using Sirdar Sublime Egyptian cotton, and here’s the pattern should you also wish to knit yourself ‘just a collar’, bear in mind this is exactly as written in the book!

  1. Very pretty – it looks lovely against the turquoisy background 🙂
    I actually crocheted a collar a few months ago, and loved how it came out – but so did my daughter, so she took it away on her last visit 🙂
    She says she’s going to use it as a necklace, of all things 🙂

    1. The background is some hessian I bought years ago for a craft project I’ve long since forgotten about!
      That sounds like a good use for a collar, saves sewing it on to a garment, especially if crocheted, or knitted, with beads on 🙂
