Lapwing Collar


One Size fits all.

This kit includes a colour-printed patterncard with full instructions and all the Alice Starmore Hebridean 2 Ply yarn required in to make the Lapwing Collar in your chosen colours. It is shown here in a Main Colour of Bogbean and Contrast 1 of Machair for the top layer of feathers and the neckband. The longer centre front and back feathers use Calluna as Contrast 2; Lapwing as Contrast 3; Strabhann as Contrast 4; and Corncrake as Contrast 5. It is shown here worn by itself, and also worn over the Lapwing Pullover design from Glamourie. It is available in a choice of 34 colours.

I designed the Lapwing collar with elements from the Lapwing, Raven and Damsefly designs in Glamourie. It is one of a group of collars that Jade and I created to demonstrate the dramatic design potential of the instructions provided in the book. You can find these collars all featured in the Flights of Fancy page of our Glamourie Techniques & Experiments section. We received a fantastic response to our collar experiments, including many requests from knitters who want step-by-step instructions for making the Lapwing collar, and so in response I have done exactly that. You can make it in any six colours of Hebridean 2 Ply.
