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.
did I say one project at a time?
