Georgette Collar



Here is another pattern for you all to enjoy!
I really love the look a detachable "Peter Pan" style collar can add to an outfit so I decided to make one for myself :-)
The pattern is easy and quick. You could easily have one completely finished in under an hour. You can use any 8 ply or DK weight yarn you like. A nice woolly one for winter, or a cotton one for summer, perhaps :-) They're also GREAT for using up all those little bits of lovely yarn sitting at the bottom of your knitting basket. But because they use such a small amount of yarn you could always splash out and buy yourself a ball of something luxurious to make yourself a special treat :-) And of course, they make lovely gifts too!
And you can find readymade Georgette Collars in my Etsy store HERE :-)

Georgette Collar
What you need:
4mm crochet hook
Approx 35-40m ( 38-44 yds or approximately 20g) 8 ply or DK weight yarn.
Wool needle to weave in ends.

15 tr (dc) x 8 rows = 10cm (4").
Tension or gauge are not essentially important to this pattern, however if you know that you normally crochet tightly, you might like you go up a hook size and if you know you normally crochet loosely, you might like to go down a hook size.

The collar above is made using a love Saffron coloured wool blend yarn, with flower ties.
The collar above is made using some very beautiful yarn that is a wool/silk/alpaca blend, with disc ties. To make this collar I used the dark colour to make the foundation chain & Row 1, then I changed to the lighter colour yarn for Rows 2-5, I then did a row of dc around the outer edge of the collar (adding a few extra stitches are the corners so it would sit flat & wouldn't curl up. I them made the disc ties as per the instructions above, then added a round of dc in the darker colour (with 2 dc in each tr), then continued with the dark colour to make the chain part of the tie, then attached it as usual to the collar :-)
The collar above is made using some lovely pure wool yarn, I used the same method as written above, using two shades of green. I then added a some scallops to the outer edge and attached the disc ties.
I used the same method as written above to make the two colour version of the collar pictured above, I then added Leaf Ties :-)
Have fun with this pattern. Make one for a friend to make them smile :-)
Coming soon is the Toddler/Child version of this pattern! :-)
Also, if you're not a crocheter you can find ready made version of the Georgette Collar in my Etsy store HERE & I do take custom requests if you have a yarn fibre or colours in mind :-)

Hi Sara! It's such a beautiful collar! I just started it today, but i'm kinda new in crochet and i don't get it on row 2, when it says:

(2tr in next st, 9tr)

wouldn't it be like just making 11 trebles?

sorry for my bad english, i did my best, im mexican and by the way i LOVE your blog :)
Thank you! :D

Shara said...

Hello Edith :-) I'm glad you like the pattern :-)
In Row 2 when the pattern says 2tr in next stitch, 9tr, what it means is you need to make 2tr in the next stitch (therefore increasing by one stitch), then make 1tr in each of the next 9 sts (and you repeat this 6 times). I hope that helps! Please let me know if you have any questions & I will be happy to help :-)

Edith said...

OH! I get it now haha, and I'll show you a pic when it's finished :)
THANK YOU!

Shara said...

Edith, I'm so glad it makes sense now! :-) I'll look forward to seeing a picture!! :-) Have fun!
