I've been told perfection is boring. Well, I'm certainly not boring (just ask my friends) and I'm definitely not perfect (just ask my kids)! Because of this I have a standing policy of rewarding people who nicely bring an error to my attention with a free single pattern download from my Ravelry pattern store.

Created as an art piece for the annual Steampunk Spectacle at my local library, the Steampunk Collar fits perfectly with both the industrial and Victorian themes associated with the extremely popular Steampunk Genre.

The ruffled, close-fitting neckline of the collar increases dramatically in “spokes” which create a flirty ruffled effect at the outer edge. The collar’s bold lines are perfect for hand-painted yarns like Hawthorne.

While the Steampunk Collar is wonderful as a costume piece, its eye-catching style makes it a welcome addition to any knitter’s accessory collection.
