Hand Cabled Collar
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool (100 gram, 210 yards worsted weight – less than one ball for this collar)
Needles: 4.5mm( US 7)
2 stitch markers, darning needle, and big button
Gauge: 20 sts = 4 inches (no worries if not exact… it’s a scarf)
Cast on 40 sts.
Row One: knit15, place marker, knit 10, place marker, knit 15
Row two: knit 15, slip marker, purl 10, slip marker, knit 15
Row three: knit 40, slipping markers.
Row four: same as two
Row five: knit 15, remove marker, cast off ten stitches, remove marker, knit 15
Row six: knit 15, turn and cast on 10 (see photos until you get the hang of this), careful not to twist stitches, turn and connect to other side by knitting last 15.
REPEAT rows One to six , until about 22 inches have been worked, ENDING WITH ROW FOUR. Now cast off all stitches.
When you get the last ladder at the top up into the last loop, use yarn and a darning needle to tack it permanently as the last loop, (and this will be the loop that can go over a big button, that you can stitch on the other end to close the cowl.)
