—- To prepare and wait for Christmas, I am going to offer a very special gift to you, my family of Knitters—-
An Advent calendar of free patterns and recipes to make something to warm up our loved ones and tell them "I took this time to please you and tell you that I love you". Pattern for today: Le Col Couleur by CLARA BEAUTY .
THE COLOR COLLAR
1 skein of BFL Aran by Fleece Artist (100% Bluefaced Leicester wool, 125g/185m) 5mm needles
20cm x 60cm
The sample is not important!
Cast on 35 stitches with 5 mm needles.
row 1: * 1 st, 1 st * repeat from * to * until the last stitch and finish with 1 st.
row 2: 1 meV, * knit 1 stitch in the stitch below, 1 meV * repeat from * to * until finished measurements.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until the knit measures 58 cm, ending with row 2.
Now work buttonholes as follows:
* 1 stitch, 1 stitch, 1 stitch, 1 stitch, cast off 4 stitches * repeat from * to * for a total of 4 times and finish with 1 stitch, 1 stitch, 1 stitch.
On the next row, knit row 2 by going up 4 stitches at each of the spaces created by the cast off stitches.
Repeat rows 1 and 2, 3 more times then cast off all stitches.
Sew 4 buttons on the other side of the collar at the buttonholes. Tuck in all the wires.
Happy Holidays! ˜
