This elegant collar will keep your neck warm and cozy on even the windiest days. Worked sideways with short rows, it flares out over your shoulders to avoid gaps between the collar and your shirt. The slip-stitch pattern creates a woven texture, an asymmetrically slanted opening, and has the added bonus of making short rows easy - no wraps needed!
