I don’t know why but I’ve been saving up a lot pictures of knit/crocheted collars from fashion blogs and old photo databases. I’ve also sketched a few ideas for collars. Yesterday I sat down and crocheted up this guy. It’s based on a beaded scalloped collar that I saved a picture of.
I used a 4.25mm hook and Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton. My mom has a huge cone of it. I don’t wear any close crew neck things so I would probably have to remake the collar with one more motif if I wanted it to really look like an attached collar. I think I’ll just wear it as is with lower cut tops.
This was a nice quick project and a good break from my cardigan pattern stuff. For those of you that remember that I was knitting two of those cardigans and are curious what happened with them, one is blocking in the kitchen and the other needs its ends woven in and a blocking.
Speaking of patterns, I’ve been thinking about doing a series of collars or maybe a little digital book of them because I have so many collar ideas. Then again, who really needs a bunch of knit/crocheted collars?
