Red collar with flowers

My last work:

lace crochet red collar with flowers

lace crochet red collar with flowers

made on pearl cotton with a steel crochet hook, 1 mm ( at least it was 1 mm before I modified it for crotat…). Anyway I like how it looks blocked. I usually don’t b;ock, but this one looks better blocked.

a detail for the flower:

It is a bruges crochet braid, you can choose one from here:

bruges braids

and some flowers, clusters again…

ch = chain; sl st = slip stitch; sc = single crochet; dc = double crochet; cluster or 4 dc tog= 4 dc worked together (like decreasing, but 4 in the same time).

ch 6, form a ring

R1: ch 4 (dc+ch 1), *dc, ch 1*; repeat *_* 11 times, join with sl st in 3rd ch from the beginning ch 4. (12 dc)

R2: ch 3 (doesn’t count), *4 dc tog (cluster of 4)  in the next ch 1 from the previous round, ch 5*, repeat *_* 12 times. (12 clusters).Join with sl st in the 3rd ch from the beginning ch 3.

R3: ch 1,  sc in each  ch from the previous round, joun, fasten off and cut your tailes.

I needed 10 flowers for a M size collar. You will join 2 petals of each flower in braid, so you have to count how many you need for your desired length. I joined with chain, maybe you will find another method (e.g. with needle, like in Romanian lace).

 

Have fun and good night! It’s 2 am here:D
