Free Crochet Pattern: Pomo Boho Collar

Was surfing the net again for crochet inspiration and free patterns and came upon this fab blog "My Amphetamines and My Purls" and saw the Pomo Boho Collar pattern which was so fancy and romantic, I just had to feature it in this blog!

Project: Crochet Lace Collar

I found this free fancy crochet collar pattern at The Ongoing Project blog which inspired me to embark on another crochet project over the weekend.

's pattern was easy to follow and although I was able to modify the size according to my neck size, the 2 collars I made came out short! Thankfully, was able to remedy that on my third try by using a ribbon instead of a button :)

Here is my finished project. I added some pearls to make it look more Victorian-inspired but actually this reminds me more of one of  Queen Elizabeth I's paintings.

Okay, so I'll call this Victoria....
thanks to my lovely model: my sister Cha

With a ribbon closure, the size can now be adjusted 

The ribbon part can also be worn infront

Visit Shay's blog The Ongoing Project for the free pattern and more of her fabulous designs!
