Split Collar

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®


9 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row) with larger needles. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


K1, p1 Rib (worked in the rnd)
Rnd 1: *K1, p1; rep from * around.
Rnd 2: K the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Rep Rnd 2 for k1, p1 Rib.


Collar is worked back and forth in rows, then joined and worked in the round.

With straight needles, cast on 60 sts. Work in Garter st (k every row) until piece measures about 3 1/2 in. (9 cm) from beg.

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.
