crochet collars

blue collar

I bought a nice jumper with a peter pan collar a couple of weeks ago, and then decided that a lot of my jumpers would look nice with the addition of a collar, so have been making these crochet collars to liven up my wardrobe.

The pattern is by Shara Lambeth and was very straight-forward and easy to follow. I tried making the collar in a few different weights of yarn and I think the most successful was the double knit collar (as the pattern recommends) - although I think the aran weight one (in cream) would lend itself well to a thick winter jumper.

A nice addition to any jumper...

oh deb, these are lovely! i think collars are a grand addition indeed. My knitted collars always seem to curl at the edges so perhaps crochet is the best step. xxx

SO cute! I'm learning to crochet now, and I can't wait until I'm good enough to make one of these! x
