Crochet Collar Patterns

Carol emailed me the following:

Remember the old days when everyone had a white add-on collar with a hook or clasp to wear on a nice cashmere sweater. I have tried in vain to find a pattern for same. Can you refer one to me?

Thanks, Carol

My Response: I know of quite a few interesting collar patterns available on the Internet. I haven't actually crocheted any of these, but they look like lovely patterns. I hope you'll find one that looks exactly like what you want to make.

    This pattern makes me smile every time I look at it. The designer has shared several different ways for making it up, and each version manages to look different and unique. The look is really retro and fun; it'll definitely take you back in time to those carefree cashmere sweater days. Yet the look is also fresh, wearable and up-to-date.
