Yep. Yes, it did. It did take a very long time for me to get back to these; something of which I am not proud, but I have been busy.

I have overhauled the pattern and made a couple of revisions, sizing changes, and blah blah blah.

Sweetly Collared was rethought, my biggest problem being how aggressively the finished collar had to be blocked at the collar tips, the cast on and bound off edges just did not have symmetry. I have gone back to my notes, revisiting an earlier draft to deal with the issue.

I wanted the pieces to be shaped as a drafted pattern collar would, the neck piece ends up nicely shaped though a little more so than a flat pattern piece and this helps the collar hug the neck better. I wanted a mesh which lends itself well to a shaped piece. Luckily, provisional cast-ons are easy peasy so I would still rate this good for beginners (who wanted to learn a new trick or two).

This pattern does require crochet skills as well as knit, a lot of my patterns do. Some require basic skills for finishing while others need more than a passing knowledge. I do plan on an all crochet and an all knit version but those are still a little way away and shall be part of the paid version of the pattern.

I am rather happy with this piece, it worked out fairly well. I just need to knit the revision a couple of more times to find any unexpected problems and have a few friends of differing skill levels to test knit before sharing.

I have a few more days before it's back to work, I have to knit like the wind or this will end up sitting until we are back in studio for a longer stretch.
