Begin with the first row again. Care must be taken to knit the proper rows of the edging; knit the collar the length you please, cast off from the straight side 56 stitches, repeat the edging pattern 16 times, cast off, and sew the edging neatly on to the sides of the collar; sew a narrow band of muslin to the neck part to make it firm.

It will be observed that, in beginning the second time with the first row of the collar pattern, it is the fifth row of edging which must be knit, and so on every second time the pattern is begun.
