Who doesn’t love vintage Peter Pan collars? A detachable crocheted collar would bring a cool twist to your simplest outfit. This crochet pearl drops collar is made from soft cotton yarn, brighten up by a pearl bead for a surefire classic style.
Materials: (I used)
5 mm crochet hook
Worsted weight yarn: cotton
Button or bead
Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each round/row instead of ch3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc for every first dc of each round/row, so just choose your best technique.
This crochet Pearl Drops collar is a free-size pattern, increase or decrease the foundation chain ( multiples of 7 plus 4 chain ) for sizing.
Special stitch used:
2dc – V stitch: (2 dc, ch2, 2 dc) into same stitch or chain.
Skill level: Intermediate
R1: ch88, dc into 4th chain from hook ( the first 3 chains work as first dc ), *skip 2 chain, 2dc-V stitch into next chain, skip 2 chain, 2 dc into next 2 sts* repeat ** 12 times across, turn.
R2: 2 dc into 1st stitch, *bpdc around next stitch, skip 2 sts, sc into the next ch2-space, bpdc around next st, 2dc-V stitch into the space between 2 dc of R1*, repeat ** 11 times across, bpdc around next stitch, skip 2 sts, sc into the next ch2-space, bpdc around next st, 2 dc into last stitch, turn.
R3: 3 dc into first stitch, skip next st, *(fpdc around the next st, skip 1 st, fpdc around next st) x 2 times, skip 2 sts, 6 dc shell-stitch into the next ch2-space* repeat ** 11 times across, (fpdc around the next st, skip 1 st, fpdc around next st) x 2 times, skip next st, 3 dc into last stitch, turn.
R4: from the last stitch of R3, sc around the border, crochet a chain for buttonhole at one side of R1 (length of chain will base on the size of the bead or button you chose), continue to sc around the border line. (fasten off, weave in ends)
Attach a button or bead on the opposite side.
