Retro Redo Crochet Collar

By: Lindsay Obermeyer

Congratulations to Crystal Creates - your suggestion has been chosen for our "Name the Pattern" contest! In addition to naming the pattern, Crystal will receive a crafty prize package!

If you're looking for crafts to make and wear all year long, look no further than this No Name Crochet Collar. The bright colors and unexpected design make this wearable a real knockout. Try this free crochet pattern and see what all the fuss is about.


Materials:

  • Bonbons Yarn: Celebrate by Lion Brand® Yarns (I used the light green and pink.)
  • 3/4" button with shank (I used one from the Haberdashery Natural collection from Buttons Galore & More.)
  • Size F / 3.5mm crochet hook
  • Tapestry needle
  • Sewing needle
  • Pink thread
  • Scissors

Instructions:

Take time to check your gauge!
Work up a swatch in single crochet (sc).  You should get 5 stitches  & 6 rows to the inch.  Note: I crocheted
the yarn slightly tighter than recommended on the manufacturer's label to get the fabric I desired.

Work the collar base.
Chain 71 in the light green.  *Turn, skip the first stitch, work the rest in sc, end with a chain 1.*  Repeat
from * to * for 10 rows.  Fasten off light green.  Sew in tails using the tapestry needle.

Add the frills.
With right side facing, fasten on the pink with a slip stitch at the far right side.  Work a sc into every stitch across
the top of the collar.  When you reach the corner work 3 double crochets (dc) in the same stitch, skip the next stitch,
work one sc, skip a stitch, work one sc. In the next corner *work 5 dc in the same stitch, skip the next stitch, work
one sc, skip a stitch.*  Repeat from * to * across the bottom of the collar.  This stitch sequence forms the scallop stitch.
When you reach the third corner, finish this sequence with a 5 dc in the same stitch.  You then skip a stitch, work a sc,
skip a stitch, work 3 dc and skip a stitch.

Time for the closure loop.
You should be just 2 rows from the top of the collar.  Work a sc, chain 6, work a sc.  Turn your work and now work 14 sc
into the loop you've formed. Fasten off the pink.  Sew in tails using the tapestry needle.

Sew on the button.
Cut a 16" length of sewing thread.  Double it over and tie a know with a long tail at the end.  Position the button opposite
the loop and sew it in place.  Tie a knot.  Sew in tails.

Block the collar.
Pin the collar straight on your ironing board.  Lightly mist it with water and allow to dry.
