Crochet Tutorial: Vintage Inspired Pelerine Collar

Crochet Tutorial: Vintage Inspired Pelerine Collar
A Pelerine Collar is a cape-like collar that goes to the shoulder or covers the shoulder. Such collars were popular in the 1830s and part of popular fashion. My spin off an old idea has me creating my very own crochet style pelerine collar in a more modern fashion statement.
Dress up a plain or simple top with this unique accessory that will have you loving this vintage inspired look.


Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this collar:
