Crochet - Collar Pattern

Crochet - Collar Pattern

I have finally finished writing out and taking photos for the crochet collar pattern I promised.  It's been completely mad here this week, we've had a birthday, a shower disaster resulting in some missing ceiling and I have a man cold and we all know how bad they can be!

Anyway it's finished and I really hope you enjoy making them...

Crochet Collar Pattern

This pattern is for an adult version

*If you would prefer to print/save this pattern there is now a downloadable PDF file at the end of the pattern.

Pattern written in UK terms

Hook: 4mm

Yarn: For Lulu's smaller collar I used Sidar Snuggly Baby Bamboo, but my yellow collar was worked in Wool Rich Heritage 4ply so feel free to experiement - If you'd like a more delicate collar try some lace or sock weight yarn with a smaller hook. 


Ch = Chain

Htr = Half Treble (US HDC)

Tr = Treble (US DC)

For the foundation row you need to chain in multiples of 4 until you get the desired length but first you need to chain a few extra to save for a button loop. How many extra chains will vary depending on the size of the button you choose. 

The length of your starting chain will depend on the size of your neck and whether you want to wear it with a high or low cut top/dress. The pattern below is based on my neck (fairly average I believe!) and quite a high collar, it measure 19inches aprox. So to make it bigger/smaller increase or decrease your foundation chain in multiples of 4. For example for Lulu's smaller collar I chained 5 (button loop) + 60 + 2 (for turning) = 67 Chains. Also when joining your yarn to the hook leave a long enough tail for sewing the button loop at the end. I have written the pattern below based on my measurements. 


Ch 5 (or however many to fit around your button) Ch 84 + 2 for turning (91 turning chains count as 1htr in Row 1)

Row 1,

Htr in 3rd chain from the hook, 1 htr into next 83 stitches (remember to leave the ch 5 or however many you’ve saved for your button hole unworked) Turn.

End of row 1 should look something like this:


Row 2,

Ch 3 (counts as 1st tr), skip next stitch, (1 tr, ch 2, 1 tr) in next stitch to create V stitch, skip next stitch, *1 tr in next stitch, skip next stitch, (1tr, ch 2, 1 tr) in next stitch, skip next stitch* Repeat from *to* until end of row, 1 tr into final stitch (turning chain). [If you started with 84 chain stitches as I did you should have 22 trebles and 21 V stitches] Turn.


Row 3,

Ch 3, *(2 tr, ch 2, 2 tr) into V stitch [ch 2 space from previous round], skip next stitch, 1 tr in next stitch [should be directly above single tr from previous row]*, Repeat from *to* until end of row. [make sure your last treble of this row is worked into the top of the Ch3 from the previous row – this can be quite tight!] Turn.


Row 4,

Ch 3, *(3 tr, ch 2, 3 tr) into V stitch [ch 2 space from previous round], skip next 2 stitches, 1 tr into next stitch [should be directly above single tr from previous row]*, Repeat from *to* until end of row. [make sure your last treble of this row is worked into the top of the Ch3 from the previous row] Turn.


Row 5,

Ch 3, *8 tr into V Stitch [ch 2 space from previous round], skip next 3 stitches, 1tr into next stitch [should be directly above single tr from previous row]*, Repeat from *to* until end of row. [make sure your last treble of this row is worked into the top of the Ch3 from the previous row] Finish off and sew in end.


Again if you started with 84 Chains you should now have 21 scallops.

To create the button loop thread the beginning strand of yarn through a darning needle and fold the chain to make a loop, knot it to the collar and weave in ends (see pic.)


And there you have it. These collars can be made and transferred from dress to top although I must warn you that If you want to wear these for any length of time you may be better off stitching them to your clothes as they can move about a bit.



If you have any queries feel free to email me and I will try my best to help. I'd love to know how you get on.

    Oh this is so pretty :o))) Found it via SheepishKnitCrochet on Twitter...and WHAT a find. I love your copyright disclaimer too, very good idea. I am def going to try to make one of these...will let you know how I get on. Toodle-oo xx

    I'm trying to teach myself to crochet in order to make pretty collars like these (I usually knit). I'm having problems with the single tremble tho, it is creating a lot of space between the v's. Any ideas on how to correct this?
    Any youtube links or other things to help a complete newbie would also be appreciated.
    Thanks for the gorgeous pattern.
    • Lululoves


      18 June 2012 at 12:12 |
      Hello! Thank you for your comment. I'm not sure why you are getting so much space - the only things I can suggest are making sure you are only skipping one stitch between the V and the treble and also just to point out that it is a UK treble which is also known as a US double [Yarn over, insert hook into stitch pull through a loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), yarn over pull through remaining 2 loops]. I can recommend Crochet Geek on YouTube she always has very easily to follow tutorials. Hope this helps some. Emma xx

    I made a collar based on your pattern and made a teeny bit of change (hope you don't mind). You can see it here:
    Thanks for sharing your pattern, it's a really pretty collar.

      Of course not - Love what you've done with your collar.xx
  • Shawna


    24 July 2012 at 11:09 |
    It's the same as the other one.. Maybe you changed only one/two rows but they are completely similar. I just hate when people change things for their own copyright :(
    • Lululoves


      24 July 2012 at 12:35 |
      Hi thanks for your comment. I explained that I was inspired to make this collar and where in the previous post. I looked for a long time for the original source and when I found it the blog had been removed along with all reference to the pattern so I cannot say if it has been worked the same or not; it also is similar in design to many vintage crochet collars that I have seen since. I spent many hours creating this pattern and reworking it from scratch to get it right and I have shared it here for free for anyone to use. I do not think that is unfair and is one of the reasons I ask people not to sell/copy the written pattern I created.

    I think the collar is just lovely. Just what I need for my next crochet commute! I think you're right about the copyright. I'm writing a baby bootee pattern at the moment for my blog and they're pretty much standard in some ways - but that doesn't mean I'm infringing someone's copyright.
    Anyway! Nothing like legal-ese, I'm finding, to slightly damped the pleasure of crafting! So - back to the lovely collar... [hunts for hook] x G

      Thank you! It's so hard but I wanted to address it here as I know how long it takes to create these patterns and there are so many out there, I am always careful about linking to other patterns or noting when I have been inspired by something in particular! As someone who crochets for fun I think this is all we can do. Thank you again for your sweet comment, today it has meant a lot! Em xx

    Hi Lululoves, thanks so much for generously posting the pattern. I have some linen/viscose in grey, silver, pink and am going to try one in the silver first. Your crocheting is very consistent in tension which mine isnt so dont think it will be neat like yours, but you are very inspiring so will try.... thanks again.

    Is it possible for you to convert this to US rather than in UK? I am not clear on the difference. Thank you.
    • Lululoves


      01 October 2012 at 10:26 |
      Hello, I have put the UK/US conversions at the top of the pattern, but basically wherever I have written Htr (UK) you would work a Hdc half double crochet (US), wherever the pattern says Tr (UK) you would work a DC Double crochet (US). I hope that helps. Em xx

    Hi Lulu!
    I just started crocheting recently, and stumbled upon your pattern on raverly. I absolutely loved it!! It makes me so happy to crochet because I feel like I can finally do something well in my life.. Haha. I am thinking of opening an instashop to earn a little bit of money, and your pattern is the first I plan to do. I will of course credit your pattern and link to your source! Just wanna make sure you're alright with it first before going ahead with it. :)

    Btw I went to the link at the bottom of this post, and you're beautiful.

    I shall check frequently so I can see your reply. :)

    Cheers from Singapore!

        Yeah crocheting is really fun and it's people like you who give out free patterns and/or sell crochet patterns for beginners who encourages me. I'll be 'stalking' you from now on. hehe. :)

        Have a Merry Christmas!

    Hi Em,
    The collar Is absolutely gorgeous and looking at it really inspired me to pick up my hooks and threads again. And have since made 2 collars. Really would like to show you what I have done but can't attach the pic here.
    I have a question how do more rows to make d collar broader???
    • Lululoves


      23 January 2013 at 19:03 |
      Thank you - you can post photos onto the LululovesUK Facebook page :)) I'd love to see. As for adding more rows you would have to keep gradually increasing the number of stitches. I've not attempted to do that so I can't really help - sorry. You could look for some vintage shawl patterns and adapt something to suit maybe? Em xx

    24 January 2013 at 20:37 |
    Thank you for this pattern! I just finished making an infant's quilted jacket and made the collar in crochet cotton thread - it turned out beautiful. The only change I made was I used dc instead of trc and in Row 3 I did not trc between the shells as it made it too bulky for a baby.It is sooooo sweet! Thank you again for sharing!

    Thank you for the inspiration. I've 'done my own thing' with your pattern and finished off the top of a dress for my daughter using some beads too. I've linked back to you here though, as my inspiration :-) (sorry, it won't let me post my link here for you)

    This collar is exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much for posting the pattern for free. I've already made one in a pretty fuchsia color and I'm preparing to make another in a light coral. My daughter is going to look SO cute in these! Thanks again!

    I just made this sweet collar for my daughter's Christmas dress. It looks lovely with a wine colored velvet dress, the collar is off white.

    Question just wondering if I should block it and how do I do this? Can you email directly.
    Thank-you and Merry Christmas from Canada

    Hi there,

    I've tried to make this lovely pattern quite a few times now, but for whatever reason the collar starts bunching up around the third row. I would love to make this for myself and my friends. Any tips or advice on what I might be doing would be appreciated!

    Thank you!

      Hi Rose - I'm not sure why that's happening. Have you got the correct amount of stitches? The v-stitches increase in numbers each row i.e. (1tr, 2ch, 1tr) (2tr, 2ch, 2tr) (3tr, 2ch, 3tr)? Em x

    I am looking to see if anyone in uk could make this collar and cuffs to match and have it posted to arrive Wednesday am? We have been badly let down and my young daughter has her heart set on it for her new dance dress and sadly crochet is something that I cannot master. I will happily cover all costs and additional on top as we have no plan b.

    hi lulu, love this so much I've made two now, both with odd balls of 100g soft knit cotton! was wondering if I would stretch it out of a 50g ball of baby bamboo or would I need two? forgot to weigh how much I had left of the other balls so bought some more in different colours. hope this makes sense! love and thanks x

    I love this pattern, only picked up a crochet hook last week & can't believe I've made this thanks to your fab directions. It is a bit ruffly when on, not flat like yours. Any top tips for next time?
    • Lululoves


      27 June 2014 at 11:37 |
      You could try blocking them or changing your hook size. Em x

    Lulu, your instructions were fabulous; the most concise and clear I've ever read for crochet patterns--it was a huge help that you pointed out the precise location over which we should create the single dc (what you call tr). I didn't ever think I could make a lace collar, yet I whipped one together this afternoon, thanks to your generous and wonderful tutorial. I must say that it looks quite impressive. Thank you so much!

    Absolutely adored making this collar, thanks so much for posting. I'm wearing it today in a very boring meeting (channelling my inner Wednesday Addams) and planning what colour to do next.
    Your tutorials are so good...ever thought of publishing a book?
