The Sunday Collar is worked from the neck edge down with increases in the rib pattern. Double knitting is worked at the beginning and end of the row to create a neat edge that does not roll. At the end, stitches are picked up along the neck edge and an i-cord edge is worked. The collar is closed at the front with a little button.
When the knitting is completed the collar should be washed and blocked, so it “opens up”.
