Here’s an idea for a xmas gift…
At Kaleidoscope we’ve all gone Rasta crazy! Everyone is knitting this easy tube collar – I made mine in 2 hours while Mr. Kaleidoscope was watching football! I chose rice stitch but you can do whatever stitch you like – this wool looks great whatever stitch you choose!
If you prefer a slightly stiffer version use 10mm needles instead.
You will need: 1 x 150g malabrigo Rasta
Either 12mm circular or straight needles ( as preferred )
Cast on loosely 41 sts, join in the round, place marker and knit in Rice stitch: K 1, P 1 every row
*until you have about 3/4 metres of yarn left. Cast off and weave in end – or if you prefer take a crochet hook size 7/ 8mm and slip stitch down the tube to make a swirly decoration!*
Straight needle version:
Cast on loosely 42 sts and work in Rice stitch: 1st row – K1, P1, to end
2nd row- P1, K1 to end , finish as for circular version and sew up side seam.
