Rolled Collar Shawl

rolled collar shawlette

skill level: easy

supplies:1 skein (50 g) "mohair sequin" by Ice Yarns
Size US 6 straight needles
yarn needle

Cast on 4 stitches.
Set up rows: R 1-2: K.
Increase Pattern Rows:
Row 1 (knit side -RS): K2, yarn over, K to end of row.
Row 2 (purl side- WS): K2, yarn over, P to last 2 stitches, K2.
Repeat Rows 1-2 until 124 stitches on needles.

You are now going to make a matching open work row for your border across the top of the shawl.

Next row (knit side): K2, *yo, k2tog* to last 2 stitches, then yo, K2.

The knit side is the right side of the shawl. The following contradicts this and it's correct.

Next row (purl side -WS): K
Next row (knit side- RS): K
Final row (purl side): Bind off loosely in K2tog bind off method. Weave in ends.

Let shawl curl for the "rolled collar" look.

alternative: Block it and wear it flat instead. Or increase size (number of stitches) for a larger shawl.
