A floral lace design repeats around this collar and crystal beads embellish the flower petals.
A delicate crocheted lace ribbon closes up this sweet collar.
Wear Asterid over your simple blouses and plain neckline dresses to turn pretty into gorgeous!

I am a self taught pattern designer and mom of three children. (6, 8 and 10) They're a wild bunch but I keep myself sane by creating the lovely designs that are forever swirling around inside my head...while they play!
My design style reads romantic and at times vintage and whimsical. I am getting to do what I love every single day and hope that knitting and crochet never ever goes away!
