Crafts for summer and spring: Detachable crochet collar pattern

Crochet  |  August 30th 2011  |  0 Comment

here is a little tutorial to make your very own collar.

This is a simple crochet detachable collar I made the other day. It is made with standard DK yarn for a more chunky look than those delicate lace ones found stashed away in vintage shops. And don’t worry, it takes a lot less time to make too. You will only need scraps of yarn: it didn’t even dent my 100g ball. Mine is made with acrylic (it was on hand..) but I think a cotton yarn would make a good alternative.

Ok, you will need:
- Yarn (see above)
- 4mm crochet hook
- Small popper (for back closure)

Abbreviations: ch – chain, sc – single crochet, dc – double crochet, sl st – slip stitch, tog – together.

Let’s begin: ch 72  (72 chs)

Row 1: ch1, sc in every st  (72 sts)

Row 2: ch2, *dc in st, 2dc in st* repeat to end  (108 sts)

Row 3: ch2, dc in every st  (108 sts)

Row 4: ch2, *dc in 3 sts, 2dc in next st* repeat to end  (135 sts)

Row 5: sl st 1 st, *5sc in st, sl st 3 sts tog* repeat until 2 sts remaining, sl st 2sts. Pull yarn through loop to finish off.

To complete your detachable collar, sew a popper at the back and enjoy wearing it!
