The Weekly Glint – Collars and Necklaces

This week I’ve been getting excited about necklaces and collars of the knitted variety. It seems like ‘prim and proper’/school mistress is a trend for Autumn/Winter and a collar is a great way to pick up on the trend. A crochet collar seems to be the standard ‘go-to-pattern’ for most crochet designers –  there are loads of great free patterns on Ravelry here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/search#query=crochet%20collar&availability=free&view=captioned_thumbs&sort=best

Something I hadn’t considered was a knitted necklace. A cousin of the crochet necklace, the knitted necklace is generally more structured and solid. I saw a beautiful knitted necklace (main picture below) by Lynne Barr in Issue 62 of The Knitter. This has made it on to my ‘to do’ list for autumn.

I love the neutral colour palette  – I’m going to be making my necklace/collar in a neutral cream. Perfect for jazzing up black or navy t-shirt.
