There’s something wildly enticing about the ultra-curly shearling lining in this motorcycle jacket photographed on model Ondria Hardin. I’m guessing none of us could afford the jacket, whoever makes it. But it’s simple enough to add a statement collar to any jacket you like. Simply knit yourself Tara-Lynn Morrison’s loop-stitch-o-riffic Markham Collar. To mimic Ondria’s shearling, I’d say knit it in something really dark and lustrous, like Purl Soho’s Super Soft Merino in Black.
See Vanessa’s recommendations for the rest of Ondria’s outfit.

My Fringe Association package arrived today—Christmas Eve. What a nice holiday surprise! Thank you!
Merry Christmas! And thank you, Laura.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and yours, Karen. I have really enjoyed your blog and look forward to more in 2014. Cheers to all!
Thank you, Clare!
Merry Xmas, Karen! Cool outfit. It reminded me about a cowl I had in my queue to make with Erica Knight’s wool Fur yarn, http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/erika-knight-fur-wool-2 which would make also a funky similar collar, just a tad quicker. Being real wool and the way yarn is constructed makes it really great looking. When I look at my swatch it reminds me that Erica probably was thinking like Stella McCartney about fur and leather substitutes when she created this yarn. :D
That IS funky! Can’t wait to see what you do with it. And Merry Christmas, Olga!
I am obsessed with this loopy collar look, and I have been dying to make one! There’s also this http://www.woolandthegang.com/shop/products/over-my-shoulder-pattern/french or this wild thing http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/tay
I hope you had a great Christmas!

Definitely — thanks, Tara-Lynn!
