Half Timbered Collar Knitting Pattern
I have always been a fan of half-timbered houses. The mixture of visible wooden beams and brick/stucco on the facade of these structures will forever feel like home - a part of Bavaria, Germany, called Franconia - to me. Some plain, some intricate, all enduring, and a testament of craftsmanship. There’s nothing quite like building something with your own two hands, is there?
My half timbered series of knitting patterns is a tribute to this style of architecture and offers the essence of it in knitting patterns - both plain and intricate, and a chance to practice your craft to end up with a knitted item that you’ll be able to enjoy for a long time.
The Half Timbered Collar is knit with worsted weight yarn in one piece from the front to the back, separating the work for the neckline and then joining it back together. The turtleneck collar is picked up and knitted last.
