Miss Marple Collar

A few months back I was shopping and found an adorable knit collar.  Of course my first thought was, "You want what for that?!  I can make it." And I did.

But then one of my readers mentioned that she had seen this same collar called a "Miss Marple Scarf."  So after a bit of hunting, I found this great free pattern off ravelry.  Armed with an official pattern this time, I had to make another one! 

I found a nice, medium blue yarn with tiny sequins scattered throughout.  The pattern directions were very easy to follow, utilizing mostly knit stitches except for the short ribbed sections.  If I were to make yet another one, I'd knit it just a bit longer in length and narrower in width.  But as it stands, it's very cozy.

This was the perfect project to pick up in the evenings while I was watching tv or sitting by the woodstove.  Next up on the Handwork To Do List are a few knitted can coozies.  I love knitting in winter, but I'm starting to dream about summer!


  1. you're welcome, bo :-)
    I especially like the little sequins on your version!

  2. This is adorable! I just discovered your blog, and I love it! I also wanted to nominate you guys for the Liebster Blog Award. Thanks for sharing the vintage love!


  3. I love your scarf! The tiny glitz sets it off to perfection.I belong to a knitting group, but I embroider instead. I can't find anything I've wanted to knit. The gals are very sweet to let me continue in the group since I've never knitted anything! But now that little scarf just sets my heart aflutter. They will be so happy to see me knitting.

    1. Excellent! We love to inspire! Let us know how it turns out!
