IMG_6198This is a pattern for a Peter Pan-style lace collar, made using the picot fan stitch worked in 3-levels, that produces a scalloped effect. Both written and charted pattern are provided, alongside a description with pictures, which if you’d like to skip, then head over to Ravelry and download the pdf pattern here. I have previously detailed how to crochet over a button and the pattern may be found here.

The 3-level picot fan stitch that I have adapted into a collar looks like this:

Generic picot fan stitch 3 level

It is normally worked flat with each ch5 loop occurring at every four stitches. To work it into a collar with an outward bias, I have repeated a ch5 loop at every 3 stitches instead, skipping two dcs every time.

Two versions of this collar are possible. The one worn by the me in the picture above has a couple of rows of filet relief. The other one pictured in my hands has been made by skipping these rows for a more solid effect. I cannot decide between the two, and have presented them both here.

Style A – With two filet rows for a mesh relief

IMG_6194This collar has been worked with 4-ch picots instead of the standard 3-ch picots, because I wanted a more dramatic effect. I prefer 4-ch picots when the thread weight is smaller than size 10 (tkt 10), but this is just personal preference.

Materials Required

Any thread-weight or lace-weight crochet thread or yarn would work very well.
I have used:
Coats Anchor Mercer Crochet Thread 20 (size 20, tkt 20). About 100 yards or most of a 20g ball.
1.5mm hook
Wooden bead to fill the crocheted button

Tension

Gauge: 3 pattern repeats in 4” using no. 20 crochet thread
Size: 26” inside circumference using 20 pattern repeats.
Gauge is only important if exact size required. To fit any neckline, use the calculations below.
To fit any neckline, measure the neckline in inches (n)
Calculate gauge G=(no. of dc in 2”/2)
Calculate: x=(n*G)/12. Round it off to the nearest whole number and use as the number of desired picot fan pattern repeats.
Your starting chains will then number (12x+3)

 

Written Pattern

Collar is worked flat
(standard US terminology is used)
Use ch(12x+3) for different sizes, where x is the number of desired picot fan pattern repeats

Ch243, turn (for 20 Picot Fan Pattern Repeats)

Row 1: Ch2 (counts as first dc), dc in 4th ch from hook, and in every ch until end (243 dc), turn

Row 2: Ch2 (counts as first dc), ch1, *skip next dc, dc in next dc, ch1*, work ** until end (121 ch spaces), turn

Row 3: Ch2 (counts as first dc), ch1, *dc in next dc, ch1*, work ** until end (121 ch spaces), turn

Row 4: *ch5, sc in second ch space from hook, ch5, sc in second dc from hook*, repeat until last ch space remains, ch3 and dc in last dc of row, turn (81 ch spaces)

Row 5: ch5, sc in next ch5 space, *8dc in next ch5 space, sc in next ch5 space, ch5, sc in next ch5 space, ch5, sc in next ch5 space*, repeat ** to end, turn

Row 6: ch5, sc in first ch5 space, *{(dc, ch1) in first 7 dc of shell and (dc) in last dc of shell}, sc in next ch space*, repeat ** until last ch5 space, ch3 and dc in last stitch of row, turn

Row 7: {3-dc cluster in first ch-space of fan, *3-ch picot, 3-dc cluster in next ch-space of fan*, repeat 6 times, sc in ch5 space}, repeat {} until end

Stitches in the {} make a picot fan

Style B

This style just skips row 2 and 3 of the previous style. It also requires a small adjustment in the number of starting chains, which is why I am writing the pattern separately here.

This example of this collar pictured above is also worked with 4-ch picots instead of 3-ch picots, because I really like their effect.

To fit any neckline, measure the neckline in inches (n)
Calculate gauge G=(no. of dc in 2”/2)
Calculate: x=(n*G)/12. Round it off to the nearest whole number and use as the number of desired picot fan pattern repeats.
Your starting chains will then number (12x+2)
