I really like the look of this pattern and the collar. It is a nice additional detail that also adds a bit of warmth. I know when I make it I will have friends who will want one as well. The instructions look easy to follow and it will knit up in no time. You can also knit the collar in a contrasting color. Thank you.

I love the versatility of this knit shawl pattern. You can throw it on over almost any outfit and instantly look put together.
