Rambeau Collar

Originally uploaded by ShelbyD
This cozy, reversible cartridge rib collar is a quick one skein project. I knit the prototype in just a few hours. The suggested yarn has some thick and thin attributes, and I think it would look nice in handspun as well.

Manos del Uruguay Wool Clasica (100% Wool), 1 skein (100g/138 yards)
16 inch circular needle, US size 10 (6.0mm) or size needed to obtain gauge
Stitch marker
Tapestry needle

Gauge: 3.5 stitches per inch in pattern stitch.

Circumference: 21 inches (Note: To adjust circumference to suit, you can cast on more or fewer stitches in multiples of 4)
Height: 7 inches


CO 72.

Place marker to note beginning of round. Join to work in the round, being careful not to twist.

Row 1: *Slip 1 as if to purl with yarn in front, K3*, repeat from * to end of round
Row 2: P1, *slip 1 as if to purl with yarn in back, P3*, repeat from * to last 3 stitches, slip 1 as if to purl with yarn in back, P2

Repeat these 2 rows until piece is 7 inches tall or desired height.

Bind off all stitches. Weave in ends.

I tried to follow this pattern but I kept making extra stitches so I gave up!

Ohh! The collar pictured is very pretty! Just about the sort of cowl I've been needing these past few days.
