Poor Rihkard. He made a brilliant choice when he purchased a navy blue cashmere aran style jersey at considerable expense, but unfortunatly the collar was too high, so when ever he spoke , his adam's apple got caught on the front of the collar, and it started to wear the fabric away. It's the sort of problem that you can not foresee at the time of purchase, and so annoying because he couldn't have the relationship with it that he was anticipating.
I chopped an inch and a half off with the scissors.
A rolled over collar, I had to pick up stitches on the inside and out. I knitted a couple of rounds for both, cast off and then joined the edges together with a round of double crochet.
A satisfying job because it was such a beautiful garment. I hope it can be worn for generations now.
