PETER PAN COLLAR
Aunt Lydia's Crochet Thread size 3
Hook size F/5-3.75mm
Button (optional, coller can also be made with tie closure)
[I stitch very tightly, you may find it necessary to use a smaller hook. However this whole project is fairly flexible and you can use different yarn weights and hook sizes as long as you size the collar around your neck as you go.]
v stitch: v-st, (dc, ch 1, dc) in same stitch.
shell stitch: shell (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in same stitch/ chain space (ch sp)
Notes: "dc in next dc" in rnds 3 - 5 refers to the one dc between each v and shell stitch, not the dcs that are part of those stitches.
To begin: ch 79 [You can ch any multiple of 3 plus 1 ch to create the size of your preference.]
Row 1: [for tie closure] sc in each ch across.
Row 1: [for button closure] sc in 9th ch from hook and in each ch across. (70 sc)
[first sc can go in any multiple of 3 away from hook, depending on size of button. Remember, the larger to button hole, the more chs you will need to begin to fit the collar comfortably.]
Row 2: ch 3 [counts as 1dc] turn, *sk next sc, v-st in next sc, sk next st, dc in next sc* repeat from * to * end row with dc in second to last sc. (17 v-st, 18 dc)
Row 3: ch 3, turn, shell in ch sp of first v-st, dc in next dc of previous row, *shell in next ch sp, dc in next dc* repeat from * to * end with dc in last dc of row 2.
Row 4: ch 3, turn, *(3dc, ch1 3dc) in next ch 1 sp, dc in next dc* repeat from * to * ending with dc in last dc of row 3.
Row 5: ch 3, turn, *6 dc in next ch sp, dc in next dc* repeat from * to * end with dc in last dc of rnd 4. Fasten off.
Button Closure: sew button onto top corner of collar without button hole with thread or yarn scrap.
Tie Closure: ch 80, sl st through each sc of rnd 1, ch 80. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
CROCHET LACE EDGING
Aunt Lydia's Crochet Thread
Notes: Unsure what size crochet I used, it was veeeery thin, but you could use whatever size you think looks nice. The thread just needs to be thing enough and your fabric loosely enough knitted or woven that you can get the crochet hook through with ease.
Join thread to item with sl st.
Rnd 1: ch 4, sl st 3/8 inch into fabric. Rep around without pulling on previous sl sts. Join with sl st in first sl st.
Rnd 2: sl st in first ch 4 space, ch 3 (counts as 1 dc and ch sp) tr, ch 1, dc, ch 1 in ch 4 sp. *In next ch 4 sp dc, ch 1, tr, ch 1, dc, ch 1. Rep from * around. Sl st in third ch of ch 3.
