A Cream Crocheted Collar


I whipped this up for Halloween. I didn’t have plans until the last minute so I didn’t put together a costume. I ended up wearing my Harley Quinn costume from the year before, but I had thrown out the cuffs and collar. They were pretty gross after Halloween and just cheap white acrylic, so I didn’t see a reason to keep them around. I knew I didn’t have time to remake the cuffs because they were crocheted densely with tons of stitches to make the ruffles stand up, but I knew I had time to replace the collar.


I didn’t have any white yarn in my stash, but I did have some cream Cascade 220 so I whipped up a collar out of it. This is the fourth or fifth collar I’ve made like this, and I think I’ve got the design pretty much perfected at this point. This one looks really nice, and I’m tempted to wear it as more than just a costume piece, but I think it might be a little too twee. I’m wondering if I might be able to pull it off in a darker color so I might make another one using some scrap yarn when I get a chance.

  1. I don’t think it’s too cutesy, but it probably would be more wearable in a darker shade. At least, for me, it would be.

  2. You could dye that one a darker shade. Although it does look very nice as is. (I would never be able to pull it off personally.)

  3. you should wear that every day. until it gets gross anyway.

    I don’t think it’s twee at all! With your dark hair and eyes and gorgeous complexion,, the cream color is beautiful and feminine. The look is sort of Victorian. I love it, and you are young enough to wear it! It frames your pretty face beautifully!

    I think it’s cute and I think you can keep it from being *too* cute. 🙂

  6. It looks awesome!! As someone who is pretty anti-twee herself, I know what you mean- it looks like it could be interpreted ipretty easily for normal wear (says the person who can’t crochet beyond a chain). What about having just one scallop, and affixing a chain to either side as a cool necklace?
