I understand what a shawl collar looks like on a pullover, but are these cardigans considered to have shawl collars? Is there another name for it? I'm looking at two of the cardigans in the link below--Griffin (on the left second from bottom) and Walton (on the bottom right).

I saw a stunning cardigan sweater on a woman the other night that was lace and had a ribbed collar like these, but the front bands were equally as wide as the collar, sort of like Debbie Bliss' pattern, Lara:

but only with the fold over at the neck that the Jaeger patterns have.

I'm trying to play with Sweater Wizard a bit to design something similar, but now I'm hung up on the question of whether or not that would be called a shawl collar....

In my experience, Griffin and Walton both have shawl collars. Griffin is exactly my idea of a shawl collar, and Walton is a little thinner, though definitely in the same category. They are beautiful, thanks for showing that link, I liked all those sweaters. Chayah

A shawl collar on a cardigan is like a lapel with no notches. Generally, the collar and the lapel are one unit that folds back to make the lapel.

Great, that's what I thought. Thanks!
