Butin Collar is a beautiful accessory and reasonably quick to knit. It comes as a kit, add knitting needles, sewing thread/needle, and knit. Laura has a terrific array of colorways to choose from.
I enjoyed knitting it and will be teaching it as a class at Westport Yarns Knitting Retreat. Most likely it will be a class this spring/summer at Westport Yarns. There is a kit for a terrific pair of matching earrings as well.
