---  The instructions below are for a fairly loose collar that will roll naturally.  Working to a tighter gauge will give a collar with a closer fit.  Likewise, a looser gauge will give a looser fit.  Optionally, the collar may be worked in any ribbing, pattern, or garter stitch, instead of stocking stitch. 

---  The collar is worked in one piece, on the garment, with a seam on the left side.  When finished, and rolled down, the right side will be showing. 

1.  Bring out 138 needles to HP.
