here's a version of the Chanson en Crochet from interweave knits online. I didn't have enough of one dyelot so I omitted the flower part of the pattern and repeated the shells/ picot instead. wool from bare sheep yarn co in their tea rose colorway. again, I need a good button. I love this and can't wait until it is cool enough here to use it. (tomorrow it will approach 100 degrees here again...)

Your version is very pretty, and probably warmer without the open spaces of the flower section to boot. :yay:

:yay::yay:That is absolutely beautiful!! What kind of yarn is that?

I see that you are in Maryland. Next time I go there, I would like to meet you. I have friends in Bethesda, Rockville and Silver Springs. I lived in DC for 3 years.

That would be fun!! I live about 20 min north of downtown silver spring. I had an apartment in NW DC when I was in grad school- in the foggy bottom area.

it is a worted weight hand dyed wool from bare sheep wool company which is also in Maryland!

OMG, that's exactly where I lived. I went to GWU, class of '98.

Really?? I finished grad school in 1996- I was in the genetics department (part of the medical school now, I think). I lived over on 20th and E, near the old red cross building! (I think they tore it down or remodeled the building- it doesn't look the same any more. ) What a small world!! We probably passed unawares... Very cool!

The last 2 years I lived on 21st and G, I think (Guthridge Hall). I worked at the hospital (Pediatrics Department) for a year. That was part of my work study. I also worked in the language center, Lisner Auditorium and admissions. I'm sure we probably crossed each other in one of those halls. I major in Sociocultural Anthropology. After all these years, I went back last october for like 10 minutes. Everything seemed so different and crowded. WOW! What a small world!

I was just looking at the Chanson en Crochet and yours is different. I like your version better. I love collars and this looks like a gorgeous one. Their pattern is more like a capelet. Am I looking at the same pattern you used?

yes- I omitted the flower part at the bottom. instead I repeated the scallop rows, then did the picot edge. I didn't like the flower part and I didn't have so much yarn in one dyelot. it is a little shorter on me than the one is on the model, but I like it.

So specifically, I followed the pattern through row 12. then, I went back and repeated rows 1-6 (allowing for the increase in stitches) then I skipped back to row 21-22 and then followed the finishing rows.

my wool also seems a little stiffer and I could have used a larger hook- while I had gauge in my swatch I think I tightened up while working.

I'm going to make another one for a friend, using these modifications again.
