Inspired by a visit in a museum in Blönduós, Iceland last summer (2011), I improvised a collar (read about it in this post). I think crochet collars are so decorative and turn the most simple dress to something very special and unique! I´ve already made a lot of collars, using different kind of yarn and making different edgings... I´ve been wearing them a lot and I just love them!
Today, I finally finished writing the pattern for my collar and I call it "Pan" - I must admit, this is the first crochet-pattern I´ve ever written - but I did get a lot of help from the crochet-specialist Elín (her blog: "Handóð"). Thank you so much for your help Elín!
About my pattern:
Pan is a simple, quick, diverse and decorative collar - just choose your favorite yarn and make it in any size and length you want. With the right button and the edging of your choice, you can add your own, special personal touch to it! :-) The button actually is really important and can chance the whole look of your collar so choose wisely!
Enjoy and I´d love it if you share pictures of your finished Pan! And if you don´t have a Ravelry-account, and really want the pattern, just tell me your Email-address and I´ll send it to you!

Buttons are so wonderful and so important when creating a collar....
