Crochet Collar Patterns

By

Carol emailed me the following:

Remember the old days when everyone had a white add-on collar with a hook or clasp to wear on a nice cashmere sweater. I have tried in vain to find a pattern for same. Can you refer one to me?

Thanks, Carol

My Response: I know of quite a few interesting collar patterns available on the Internet. I haven't actually crocheted any of these, but they look like lovely patterns. I hope you'll find one that looks exactly like what you want to make.

Moderne Floral Collar

This classy collar is a contemporary design with retro-vintage charm. It's an intermediate-level crochet project that you can work in crochet thread. This collar was designed by Lorna Miser. The free pattern is posted at the Red Heart website.

Versatile Retro Georgette Collar

This pattern makes me smile every time I look at it. The designer has shared several different ways for making it up, and each version manages to look different and unique. The look is really retro and fun; it'll definitely take you back in time to those carefree cashmere sweater days. Yet the look is also fresh, wearable and up-to-date.

This free pattern is by Shara Lambeth; it's posted at her website.

Peter Pan Collar

I love the simple symmetrical design of this Peter Pan-style collar, which is crocheted in several basic stitches: double crochet, half double crochet, single crochet and chain. The collar was designed by Rachele, and it is posted at the Nearsightedowl.com website.
