Crochet collars have been back in style for a few years now and they don’t really seem to be going anywhere. That being said, there are a slew of patterns kicking around, so I thought I might as well add mine to the mix.
- 2 oz. skein of worsted weight yarn. Cotton works best because it doesn’t have quite as much elasticity as acrylic or wool.
- Size (I) hook
- Fancy button, sewing needle, matching thread
3-dc puff stitch: (Yo, insert hoon in next space, yo, draw yarn through space, draw yarn through two loops on hook) 3 times in same space, yo, draw yarn through 4 loops on hook.
V-Stitch: 3-dc puff, ch 3, 3-dc puff
Row 1: sc in first ch, ch 2, sk next 2 sc, sc across to end. *The ch 2, sk next 2 ch makes the button hole*
Row 2: ch 3 (counts as dc here and throughout pattern), dc in next 3 sc, [ch 1, sk next sc, dc in next 3 sc] across, ending with dc in last sc
Row 3: ch 3, sk next st, V-st in next st, V-st in center of each 3-dc group across, ending with dc in last dc
Row 4: ch 3, 3 dc in ch sp of next V-st, [ch 1, 3 dc in ch sp of next V-st] across, ending with dc in last dc
Row 5: Repeat row 2. Fasten off.
Weave in ends. Using matching thread, sew fancy button onto top right edge of collar. Make sure that whatever button you use fits into the ch 2 space you made on row 1.
Side Note: This is yet another example of something I made with yarn I got from my local dollar store. Making pretty things doesn’t have to cost you a lung and half a kidney.
