This is the case with the Markham Collar from Tara Lynn-Morrison's first Good Night, Day Knitting Booklet. I've wanted to make this for about a year, but have had different projects come up and distract me. Since I've recently finished quite a few things in fingering or sport weight yarn, I thought I deserved some bulky knitting as a treat.
These patterns are light on instruction, so playing with the cast on to get the right size is necessary. I finally just cast on 49 stitches, using size 11s. I did garter stitch for the first two rows to keep the collar from curling and made my loops a generous in size.
I really like how it turned out. Since these photos I've pulled the ribbon out to tack it onto one of my coats for this winter. This is definitely a one movie knit. It was just what I needed before moving on to Ravello and Sothern.
