I had been thinking of making a ribbed collar similar to this one for a sweater that I am making:

Does anyone have advice about whether this is  single rib (i.e. k1p1) or double rib (k2p2)? Also, does anyone have advice about how this particular shawl is constructed? I have already knitted much of the sweater and just want to make the collar, so any advice about how to make a similar collar would be appreciated.

Thanks for this. I am just wondering if there is short row shaping at the top of the collar.

I might be wrong but it doesn't look like there's any short row shaping involved.  Just knit a nice wide bit of ribbing and fold over around the neck.

The collar looks a lot like the collar in the "Sweater with Wide Collar" from Rebecca 29 (This page was the first I found with a picture of it)

In that one, it's 2x2 ribbing and there is short row shaping involved.  That was the only shawl-collared sweater I've made (again, the one linked is NOT mine), so I can't give you any advice as to whether or not you can skip the short rowing, though.

Thanks ladies for the advice. I guess I will just knit the two by two ribbing with this sweater and see what happens.

How does one do short-row shaping in rib, btw? I have kind of gotten my head around how to do it in plain knitting, but how do you make the patterns match up in rib?

Same as stocking or garter I imagine - knit the knits and purl the purls should work.
