  • 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


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.
