Designed to protect your neck and collar from the elements when wearing a button-down coat, this collar/cowl is “caulking” against chill and damp.

Knit from the bottom up, the piece is steadily increased in pattern and buttoned in the back. My best friend came up with the name after I demonstrated how it worked with a coat.

Pattern includes line-by-line instructions. Sample shown was knit using one skein of Tactile Fiber Arts Sierra Sport Sock in the color “Beach”.

Measurements:

  • 18”/ 45.75 cm circumference, buttoned up
  • 18.5”/ 47 cm wide x 13.5”/ 34.25 cm from point to collar, laid flat
