Split Collar Reviewed by dannette on 2014-11-10 ****
I was afraid to make this after reading the two reviews. But I went ahead anyway with modifications based on the comments about stretch.
I decreased stitches to 44 instead of 42 and did k2 p2 (starting with k1 and ending with k1) ribbing for more stretch.
I then increased one stitch in each k2 of the ribbing (except the one at centre)on the last row and did a loose bind off knit ways.
Worked out perfect.

I used the sewing cast-off method and it fit perfect over my head and around my neck. However, it seems the bottom collar part wont lay flat and the shaping is a little off. I was going to make another in a different color but I have changed my mind.

I read the reviews after making the pattern which I regret. It turned out to small. So I am giving it two stars.

I love the yarn. I read the earlier two reviews and decided to make this patten. I did three modifitions on the patten to make it work. I cast on long tail and slip the first stitch purlwise with yarn in the front. I did not use the double needle size 10.5. I kept using #13 18" circular needles. I try it on and it fit me perfectly. I will make another one for Christmas.

Split Collar Reviewed by Jennifer Lewis on 2009-11-17 ***
The pattern is very easy. I like that it works up quick and is a very warm, unique scarf. I agree with the other reviewer who couldn't get it over her head. My first attempt ended the same way. I discovered you must bind off using a tubular cast off. This is very stretchy. With this pattern you will want to bind off very loosely. If you pull the stitches tight you will not achieve the proper stretch. I think the pattern should have included a proper cast off in its instructions. That would alleviate a lot of frustration from those who spent the time making it only to discover they couldn't wear it.

It doesn't fit over my head. Even if it did, the neck would be too stretched to fit. Good job, Lion Brand.
