Knitting pattern: Lace Collar

This Lace Collar is not only beautiful and detachable, it is also made exactly to the circumference you want and a nice way to use up left overs of fingering weight yarns.

Even better: This pattern doesn’t come alone, it’s part of a two pattern collection! The other pattern included is the equally cute fifties style Peter Pan Collar which is a cute way to give an old sweater a new and quirky look.
