Yak in brioche
Yak in brioche
A small collar with 2 super soft wools, each containing… Yak! Something to resist the cold Himalayas or to offer to your beloved Yeti.
Approximately 48 cm unstretched. The height of the model is 22 cm but adjustable. The proposed material can make a collar with a height of 30 to 40 cm.
Approximately 17 m for 10 cm with 3.5 mm needle in brioche stitch. The sample is not essential on this project. But, if you knit really tight, I advise you to knit the collar with 4 mm (US 6) needles.
100 g of light weight wool (DK). Pattern made with one (1) skein of Santi, merino/alpaca/yak/silk, lightweight (DK), 50g/125m skein, colori Evening Bloom from Illimani Yarn and one (1) skein of Nomad, merino/yak , light (dk) in 100 g/211 m skein colori Natural by Fleece Artist

Cast on 80 stitches with color 1 on circular needles. Join in the round taking care not to twist the stitches and place a marker ring.
Knit one round and purl one round.
Notes: Cross the threads at the beginning of a new row to prevent a space from being created.
Tighten the yarn of the front row after knitting a few stitches.

Finish your collar
After row 2, make a transition row with color 1 as follows: * BRED, 1 meD * repeat from * to * until finished measurements.
Purl a row then knit an increase row as follows: 1 st, AI, * 2 sts, AI *, repeat from * to * until finished measurements = 121 sts.
Cut yarn 1 and join color 2.
Cast off with I-Cord as follows:
Cast on 3 stitches with color 2 and the double pointed needle from the first stitch of the row. The I-Cord will be knitted with 2 double pointed needles.
* Knit 2 stitches, then knit together the 3rd stitch twisted together with a stitch on hold. Replace the 3 stitches at the beginning of the double pointed needle and start again from *.
You will be able to view the I-Cord flap of the collar on our Youtube channel from September 10, 2020.
Sew the 2 ends of the I-Cord together.
Tuck in all the wires. Wash and let dry flat.
