This ruff is a quick knit from the top down; increases allow it to lay flat on your neck. I used to sew a great deal so the Elizabethan-era ruff has long entranced me. The closure is where you can really allow your artistic side to come through or it can be as simple as a decorative hook eye. I give you a flattering, modern-day ruff.
