Knitting for Olive – Karl Johan Collar – knitting pattern


The Karl Johan Collar is worked seamlessly with two strands held together (one strand of Merino and one strand of Soft Silk Mohair). It begins in the round with the ribbed folded-over neck, and work continues in stockinette stitch, with modified contiguous saddle shoulders and short-row shaping construction. Shoulders are then bound off, and front and back panels are worked separately back and forth to size.
