Pattern Description:

I love Columbine flowers. I loved to come across them in my native mountains in Colorado. Now that I live on the plains I thought I would design a choker or v-neck collar design that would show off these flowers. Now you can too.

This romantic choker pattern adds the perfect victorian touch to any outfit with colors of your own choosing.

Two leaves adorn each end of the v-neck design to sew to the v-neck outfit that needs a little something.

These flowers are so three-dimensional they look just like they were picked from a garden this morning and mounted on a lacy necklace to make a glorious addition to any outfit.

Since you are crocheting it, any varieties of colors can be used. The pattern shows the colors I used but any combination of colors could be used to add that little extra touch for your own special piece.

What a great gift to make for yourself or for someone who adores these flowers, Or make the v-neck collar design to make that plain outfit really stand out.

You will need a Boye Steel Crochet hook size 1 (2.25mm) or Aluminum Crochet hook size B. This is a larger size hook than usually used with thread crochet and makes working with thread crochet easier for those who are not comfortable with thread.
