Annette Petavy combines knitting and crochet seamlessly in this neck warmer that is both collar and yoke. An elastic knitted ribbing melts into a crocheted lace yoke, worked in an arcade pattern of consecutively larger chain loops. The piece closes at the throat and can be worn with the collar folded down as shown or with the collar standing as a stylish turtleneck-perfect for wearing under a tailored blazer.
