Autumn Georgette Peter Pan Collar

Over the course of the summer and the beginning of Autumn, I've been knitting and crocheting a lot, but I hadn't felt much motivation to share (attribute it to pregnant mama exhaustion or what have you). Well I've take a few photos of various projects (the ones I think are cute enough to show someone!) and am finally planning on posting them. And here we go...

I was trying to hunt down a cute peter pan collar I could wear with some of my simpler tees to dress them up or add a sense of dated modesty and femininity to them. Eventually I found this pattern, the Georgette Collar, and set to hooking. You can find an extra details on my ravelry project here.

The yarn was an old Manos Del Uruguay wool silk blend (I think) I've had since 2009, lost the tags to, etc. But it totally fits my autumn mood (tis my favorite season) with reds, golds, and hints of green in the colorway. Still have a bunch left! Wonder what else will come out of it.

One of the things I like about this pattern is that she provides you with multiple variations for the ties ends. I chose the leaves (so very predictable) and I think they are quite sweet... I get the feeling I'm going to make a few more of these to get rid of some of my old acrylics. I told myself I wouldn't buy more wool until I used up a bunch of my existing yarn... Sigh.


I'd love to hear from you and will reply happily!
