Part three

Using your 5 mm hook

Creating the shoulders, neck and arm holes

Mark 19 sts over and place a stitch marker. Do this for both sides. If you are trying to make a different size, then mark over 1 / 3rd of the way over, count your stitches and make it even for the other side too.

Repeat for the other side and as you can see, as you made your neck hole, you also made your arm hole too.

Sl st in all sts, ch 1 and cut your yarn leaving a long tail because we will use it to do a bit of sewing.

 

There is a bit of a hole on the sides so I like to use my tail here to sew the hole shut where we just did the 2 sc dec’s.

 

Then cut another piece of yarn to sew the hole side on the other side of the collar as well.
