Well, here it is! After a couple of months looking at the fabric, the ribbon, the whole concept of sewing a collar without a pattern and CUTTING my knit garment, I just bit the bullet and did it!! And I'm so happy I did!
I know that knitting doesn't unravel horizontally. But my soul ached at the thought. I'm not new to steeks, either. Just a primal fear that the hours of work will all end up in a knotted mess on the floor!
