Well hello – I don’t quite know what happened to November and December but we seem to have arrived in 2019!
I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year break with lots of relaxing craft time and not too many winter bugs getting in the way.
I finally had chance to come up with a classic pattern for Perran Yarns Chunky Merino which I’m sharing with you for free!
The Simple Ribbed Collar is an easy knit project made in just a few hours for a quick and super cosy winter accessory.
Requires 100g Perran Yarns chunky merino (available from my Etsy shop), shown in shade Precious Metals.
Using a 7mm circular needle, use German Twisted Cast-on (or your favourite stretchy cast-on) to cast on 84 stitches.
Divide the stitches evenly over the two ends of the circular needle to begin knitting in the round using magic loop technique, taking care not to twist the stitches.
Work rounds of Knit3, Purl3 until there is approx 4metres of yarn remaining (I worked 37 rounds),
Cast off loosely, sew in ends and enjoy!
You end up with a long ribbed tube, which you can wear folded over and upright as desired.
