What advice would you give someone starting this project? There are many versions of collars on-line, this one is mine. The construction is basically the same. try using other fibers. The photo of me wearing a color is a linen, cotton blend. The other photo shows collars in wool. This I feel changes the look and texture to these pieces. Adjusting the size is simple enough. You can also change the look for a more severe collar use picots or for a more simple taste use reverse single crochets.
