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...

Pattern written in UK terms

Hook: 4mm (you can shop my favourite tools here)

Yarn: DK weight cotton - I've used Paintbox DK for lots of these collars 

If you are after a more luxurious collar I really love Cascade Ultra Pima as it has a delicate sheen and they have the most amazing colours!

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

For the foundation row you need to chain in multiples of 4 + 1 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) + 61 + 2 (for turning) = 68 Chains. Also when joining your yarn to the hook leave a long enough tail for sewing the button loop at the
