Viima is the Finnish word for strong, cold wind or draught. The Viima collar is a stylish and warm layering piece to shield you from the cold weather. The collar is started with a 2x2 ribbing that flows into a beautiful and classic cable pattern on the front and the back.

The Viima collar is knitted seamlessly in one piece from the top down, with well-thought and polished details such the neat and stretchy tubular cast on edge, short-row shaping for the front and back neck and the continuous i-cord edging. All techniques and steps are explained in the pattern.

The pattern is written for DK weight yarn, but you can also use a combination of fingering weight yarn and a strand of silk mohair for added luxury.
