How To Make A Crochet Collar

Crochet collars, though not as famous as they were in Victorian Era, are still very popular.

Making a crochet collar is a bit difficult as it need perfect measurements and the intricate the pattern is; more eyes it catches.

So you might be thinking how to crochet a collar? Right? Let’s not waste any time and let me tell you how you can make a frilled lovely collar with crochet.


One large thread ball of your color choice, choose cotton one. Crochet hook.
1. Make number of chains, which make the length equal to collar size. I’m starting with 21.

2. 1st row: Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across (20 stitches). Chain 1, turn.

3. 2nd to l4th rows incl: Single crochet in each single crochet across. Chain 1, turn.

4. l5th and l6th rows: Single crochet in back loop of each single crochet. Chain 1, turn.

5. l7th row: * Insert hook in front loop of next single crochet of 3rd row down (14th row) and in front loop of corresponding single crochet of last row made, thread over and draw loop through and complete as for an single crochet. Repeat from * across (ridge made). Chain 1, turn. The side on which ridges appear is right side of collar.

6. 18th row: (This is neck edge.) Single crochet in first 2 single crochet, (chain 2, sk 2 single crochet, dc in next single crochet) 3 times; (chain 2, sk 2 single crochet, treble in next single crochet), 3 times. Chain 1, turn.

7. 19th row: Make single crochet in each slip stitch and 2 single crochet in each sp across (20 slip stitchs). Chain 1, turn.

8. 20th row: Single crochet in each single crochet across. Chain 1, turn.

9. 21st, 22nd and 23rd rows: Same as l5th, l6th and l7th rows.

10. 24th to 36th rows incl: Single crochet in each single crochet across. Chain 1, turn. Repeat l5th to 36th rows 9 more times. Fasten off.


1. Work along outer edge

2. 1st row: Single crochet closely across, keeping work flat. Chain 1, turn.

3. 2nd row: Single crochet in 1st single crochet, make nine chain-7 loops over each single crochet section, two chain-7 loops over each sp and make ten chain-7 loops over last single crochet-section, ending with single crochet in last single crochet (120 loops in all; it is important that number of loops be divisible by 5). Chain 3, turn.
4. 3rd row: 6 dc in 1st single crochet (shell made), * single crochet in next loop, (chain 7, single crochet in next loop) 4 times; 7 dc in next single crochet (another shell made). Repeat from * across, ending with a shell in last single crochet. Turn.

5. 4th row: Slip stitch in next 3 stitches, single crochet in next stitch, * chain 7, single crochet in next loop, (chain 4, single crochet in 3rd chain from hook, thus making a p; chain 2, p, chain 1, single crochet in next loop) 3 times; chain 7, single crochet in center dc of next shell. Repeat from * across. Chain 3, turn. Repeat the 3rd and 4th rows alternately 6 more times. Fasten off.
