Due to the unique nature of this yarn, the techniques for casting on and knitting are specific to this particular yarn.
The Collar is easy to knit, just be sure to read carefully through the instructions before beginning so that you understand how to work with the yarn.
COLLARNote that Bellini yarn is constructed with a 'ladder' along one edge.
The spaces in this ladder edge should be counted as loops.
Cast on 27 sts as follows: From end of yarn, skip the first 2 loops (this end of the yarn is the yarn tail), then insert your needle into the next loop.
Keeping this loop on your needle, insert your needle into each of the next 26 loops - 27 sts (loops) on needle.
Work in Garter st (knit every row) as follows: 1.
Hold the needle with the cast on sts in your left hand and the empty needle in your right hand.
Insert right hand needle into the first st on the left hand needle as if to knit, then into the next loop on the working yarn.
Pull the loop of working yarn through the st on the left needle, then slip the st off the left hand needle - 1 st knitted onto right hand needle.
Insert right hand needle into the next st on the left hand needle as if to knit, then into the next loop on the working yarn.
Pull the loop of working yarn through the st on the left needle, then slip the st off the left hand needle - you have now knit the next st.4.
Rep Step 3 to knit all sts.
COLLAR Work in Garter st (knit every row) for 6 rows.Continuing to use yarn loops as sts, bind off.
FINISHING With sewing needle and thread, sew button to one corner of Collar.
Use any space between sts as a buttonhole.
Use your fingers to weave the yarn ends into the fabric of the Collar.
