Most shawls are begun at the neck, but Faroese shawls are begun from the bottom by casting on hundreds of stitches. As the work progresses, structural decreases between the side panels and back gusset reduce the number of stitches until very few remain at the neck.

I don’t understand how to sew collar on in B 6107. I’m confused by whether I sew to facings and how I turn collar inside out

Hello, Joyce -

I hope I am correct in understanding you are referring to Butterick pattern 6107. If so, I don't own that particular pattern and accompanying instructions. Am I also safe to assume you do not have the sheet of written instructions with images to accompany the garment pattern? In case you have the pattern pieces but not the sheet of instructions, you may wish to contact the McCall Pattern Co. (Butterick is one of their brands) directly via email here: . Note: They may charge for replacement instructions.

In the meantime, assuming I am correct about your sewing Butterick pattern 6107, I see the coat has 2 collar styles - 1 a shawl collar and 1 a stand up collar.

If you are sewing the shawl collar version, perhaps this online tutorial (with pictures) on sewing a shawl collar will be instructive:

If you are sewing the stand up collar version, this online tutorial (with pictures) may provide the right instruction:

If neither of those resources seem helpful, then you may find an experienced sewer in your neighborhood who will offer to help show you what to do. How to go about that:
- If you are not already a member of the neighborhood web site, I recommend you join it (free.) You will be able to identify and limit your "neighborhood" when you register.
- Once you are a member, post a question asking if someone in your neighborhood could instruct you in how to sew the kind of collar you wish to sew. Note: I recommend using the private message feature to share addresses and phone numbers.
- There will probably be a kind neighbor or two who will be willing to come to your home and demonstrate to you one-on-one on how to sew the collar and turn it out.

If you would rather not follow the route, then, my last option is for you to contact the local public school system and ask for then name and contact information for the person / people who teach sewing (probably in middle school / junior high school) in the school system. Then contact a sewing teacher and ask her/him if you can arrange a lesson with her/him on how to sew your collar. I recommend offering to pay for the teacher's time.

Best wishes.
