Okay, I really should show you this. I started this collar already last year on a car trip and finished it knitting in February and then it took me till the end of March to sew on the ribbons. And now it took me so long to post about it, that the weather is really not approbate for a knit collar.
The pattern for the collar is from "Learn to knit. love to knit". I used the wool recommended there and it was really nice. I only got confused with the pattern sometimes. I am a bit tempted to do it again properly, but first there are other projects.
I hope I can wear this collar in the colder season. This would be quite cute to a simple dress or coat.
