  3. Hello everyone its been years since i had an active post in this lovely forum i really miss you all well last year at the end of June i couldn't go to sleep and it was couple of hours away from my waking time for work so i thought of making that collar necklace and wearing it for work everyone asked me about it and i was so proud some even brought yarn and asked me to give them the way of how to make it now ill share my pattern i made it from a scallop stitch i hope you like it note: when i first did it i thought it wont lay flat but i ironed it and sprayed it with water and steam iron it just worked great and with wearing and using itll be perfect I made another one with beaded yarn and it was way too big but would love to wear it with chiffon black blouse Ok the abbreviations: sl st = slip stitch sc = short crochet dc = double crochet hdc = half double crochet ch = chain puff stitch = yo, insert hook in space, yo pull yarn, repeat 4 more times, yo pull through all loops, ch1 to secure the puff you need: suitable yarn (in the white i used 100% cotton yarn, in the bronze i used beaded yarn and a combo of cotton and something else hook size 3.5 mm Instructions: 1) ch 71 2) hdc in 3rd chain from hook, hdc in each stitch to the end , turn 3) ch3 (counts as first dc) 1 dc in same place, *dc in next st. , 2 dc's in next st.* between whats between ** to the end of the row. Turn . 4) ch5 (counts as 1dc and ch2) skip 2 dc and sc in the third *ch 5 , skip 3 dc and sc in the 4th* repeat whats between ** till the end. Turn 5)ch 3 , sc in the middle of the ch5 space * ch5, sc in the middle of the next ch5 space* Repeat whats between ** till the last one. ch3, dc in the 3d ch of the ch5 space from the previous row. Turn 6) ch1, sc in the first space, ch5, sc in the middle of the next ch5 space,* do not chain, 7 dc's in the next ch5 space, sc in the next ch5 space, {ch5, sc in the next space => 3 times}* repeat whats between ** 3 more times. 7 dc's in next space, sc in next space, ch5, sc in next space, ch3, dc in the 3rd chain from the previous row. Turn 7)ch1, sc in the dc, ch5, sc in the next space, *{dc on the next dc, ch1 =>6 times}, dc on the next dc, sc in the next space, { ch5 sc in the next space=> twice}* you will have 7 dc's and 6 ch1 spaces in between, and 2 ch5 spaces, repeat whats between ** 3 more times. dc on the next dc, ch1 => 6 times, dc on the last dc, sc in the last space, ch3, dc on top of the sc from the previous row 8)ch1, sc in the dc, *{dc on the dc, ch2=> repeat 6 times} dc on the last dc, sc in the next ch5 space, ch5, sc in the next ch5 space* you will have 7 dc's, 6 ch2 spaces, 1 ch5 space, Repeat whats between ** three more times. Dc on the dc, ch2 => repeat 6 times, dc on the last dc, sc in the 3rd ch from the previous row. Turn 9) ch1 sc in the sc, {make puff on the dc, ch2 => 6 times, make puff on the last dc, sc in the middle of the ch5 space, repeat till the end, sc in the sc from the previous row. I did a line of sc's on the sides just to make it look prettier, the straps are chains in the suitable length you would like the end of the strap is (ch5 more chains, sl st in the 5th ch from hook, 10sc in the ring, fasten off) hope that was clear and i really hope that you would try it and tell me what you think i added some pearly beads in the white, but the bronze is already beaded so i didn't add anything. Enjoy and thanks for dropping buy

  6. thanks ladies for all your feelings i really appreciate it Judy ohh only TWO!! looool at least you did something cindy yup i have two girls i know divorce is hard but sometimes when things goes totally wrong in marriage and your partner treats you as if you weren`t there and you are already taking the full responsibility of the kids, then i think divorce is better as its gonna open new doors for you to start new life, maybe someday i`ll meet a better person i dont wanna be bond by the wrong one :\ i started the half moon shawl i`m half way through it and i made one hexagon for the snowflake afghan i`m gonna start a diet tomorrow yeek i`ve gained alot of weight lately , i should lose 50 pounds
