Stitches for the neckband are picked up and worked in the round.
Colorburst is a yarn featuring color shifts. To ensure your project looks as close to the sample as possible when breaking and rejoining yarn, be sure to visually match the color at the point in which you’re rejoining yarn. This may require you to wind off yarn from the ball, but we promise the results are worth the effort.
