*day 5 of the give-away party!* the changeling collar

hi! welcome to day 5 of the give-away party! i’m so glad you’ve come back to play today. So here we go! Day 5 brings us *the changeling collar*.

Fairies like to keep their options open. Luckily for them, this little reversible collar can be flipped & worn two different ways.  On the flipside, fairies hate to make decisions.  Looks like the changeling collar will keep them in front of the mirror all day!

You can take a closer peek at the details *here* or buy it now for 5.50 USD.The pattern is also featured in my book *woodland knits.*

Ps. I originally made this collar in pink and blue (pictured in the mosaic on the left.) But then I put the beekeeper’s quilt pattern and I needed a little flower design.  I couldn’t help it! I took the one from this poor little collar….. cheeky little faery!  Needless to say the collar got scrapped for a while until some new flowers popped into my head.  I think the new ones are kind of art-deco wouldn’t you say? .. If you like the original flower design pictured on the pink & blue collar.. the chart is in the beekeeper’s quilt pattern 🙂

    This is brilliantly adorable. I thought for a second to add this to a sweater, but it’s too cute. I would love being able to add it to any outfit! I never followed the detached collar trend, but this is perfect for winter weather and it adds a little daintiness to chunky sweaters.

  10. Susan Shaw says:

    My inner fairy is hopping up and down right now, saying “Yes! Yes! Yes!”
    So very very pretty.

  17. Kirsten says:

    This little collar reminds me of the ones my mother would put around my neck when I wore a simple little dress w/a round neck. Most were made of cotton or linen and I remember her ironing all the little pleats and the tiny sleeves. My Dad was Danish and little handmade collars would arrive from loving relatives. This just shows what I knew all along….Our Tiny Owl has Class.

  18. Awww! So sweet! I love the fairy Princess crown your model is wearing too! I can see I will be knitting most of your book’s patterns! Butterfly kisses!

  19. Casey says:

    Your flower designs are some of my favorites!

  20. Kristalia Astari says:

    so cute! I love how it looks with your sweater too 😀

  21. Jeanne Einhorn says:

    I must have been a fairy in a past life because I have such trouble making up my mind! This collar would be perfect because I could change it out multiple times in one day. 🙂 Your designs are wonderful.

  79. Tess says:

    This little Fairy Princess needs to change it up for Fall in my Plum Blossom Cottage amidst the foliage of the Gingko tree…and then I will let my little Fairy fingers fly with frenzied excitement when I have in my hands the book of Woodland Wonders to keep me company through winter’s chill. In other words, I really love your creations and covet the book!!!

    B) I wish I had the tallent to be a pattern designer instead of my crappy day job
    C) I’m still waiting for you to post moonkoosa boots. Are then in the book? Cos i recon they’d be the perfect pattern for both my sister an our cat. She would love the cosy slippers and he would love the tassels. He absolutely loves attacking feet. Feet with funny dread like things would blow his mind

  170. Anja says:

  171. Helen says:

    Just perfect for the Changeling of the season into Autumn 🙂

  185. Aerial says:

    I can’t wait to get your book!

  186. It’s wonderful!! I would knit one in every possible color combination and every flower i could think of. I love the shape and that it’s reversible, which makes it perfect for me in winter, because i’m always cold!

  187. Ashley says:

    I love so many of the patterns I’ve seen so far – Midsummer Night’s Dream & the Moonbeam duster are just so me and I’d have to make the faerie wings for when I run my next marathon (do you think the faeries would help me run faster LOL?!)

  195. mintypanda says:

    Oh you could make one side in a warm palette and the other side in cool, like Brigid and the Cailleach! Your collar can turn with the seasons 😀

  196. Love, love, love it, So fun, so sheik, so fabulous! Just like YOU!,

  197. KnittyLizard says:

    Well, what self respecting fairy wouldn’t love this?
