Yay. Blogger let me in. I have been having the worst time commenting lately.

Lurve the collar - you look so pretty!

Beautiful collar, Morgan. It appeals to my inner, well-accessorized Victorian, who is usually squashed down by my need to get out the door within 10 minutes of waking.

I tried to follow your instructions but they are too vague : ( Beautiful collar but could not make it. : (

Hi Steph,

Thanks for the comment and for trying out my pattern.
I'm so sorry it didn't work out for you. Please do message me if you have any questions; was there a specific step that was unclear? I know that I have a tendency to write as organically as I stitch, particularly in my crochet patterns :(

The collar has some great pattern support on Ravelry. 15 Ladies or so have made beautiful versions there, some with minor modifications. I recommend their notes and friendly tips.

Crochet patterns are notoriously vague; I often run private lessons purely in how to decipher them. Please drop me a line if you ever find yourself in this position again.
Thanks for reading!

PS I wrote this pattern such a long time ago I'm now going to go back and retest it. It can't hurt! Thanks again for your note.
