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.


  • 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!

  • 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?
