6mm circular, 6mm short
Increase (Kfb), Knit, Purl
Welcome to your new favourite knit! This Ruffle Collar is a joy to make and so much fun to wear. A pattern suitable for a confident beginner knitter, you’ll be able to knit this up in a matter of hours, ready to wear out straight away – the only problem is, which colour will you choose?!
There are so many options when it comes to knitting the collar, as well as wearing it. The pattern tells you how to create three different frills, from a gentle to more of a flounce frill – and who doesn’t love a flounce?
With calculations (yes, there’s a bit of maths!) to work out your own personal sizing and whether you’d like a high or a low neck, and the choice to keep it short or go wide, it really will be the most unique collar to you.
When you come to wear it you have so many variations too! Wear it purl side or knit side, with the lacy bow at the front, back or side. Wear it over a plain t-shirt or a floral top. Even wear it over a jumper or double it up with a blouse collar. It looks stunning however you style it.
Using a combination of knit and purl stitch, with some Kfb to create the frill, this is a great pattern for a confident beginner and upwards. You’ll be making them in every colour!

We source our Merino yarn from happy sheep.
Merino sheep are not native to this country so the wool itself is provided from farms around the world, however, we are very careful where we do source our fibre from. Our Merino is from South America and the South African Cape and we don’t buy from farms that mules their sheep.
The best quality of wool comes from happy sheep. If a sheep has a poor diet and general poor health its fleece will suffer. Both the quality of life for the sheep and the quality of wool it produces are hugely important to us. We have strong relationships with our suppliers to ensure that we can trust them and their practices. Merino shearers are all trained well to do it as efficiently and kindly as possible and the sheep are a lot happier once their 5kg fleeces are off!
