I turned a turtleneck collar into a crochet lace collar. It’s a very easy refashion! 😀
The sweater had a turtleneck collar before. But I don’t like turtlenecks! 😉
So I cut off the turtleneck collar and unravelled the collar.
Then I used the yarn to crochet a lace collar.
Once finished, I sewed the crochet lace collar to the raw edge of the sweater with two rows of zig zag stitches. The two rows of zig zag stitches prevent unravelling of the raw edge.
On the right side, the raw edge is hidden behind the single crochet stitches.
I like how it turned out! 😀 The loose crochet lace collar is much more comfortable to wear.
Here are similar crochet lace patterns, if you’d also like to refashion your turtle neck sweater into a crochet lace sweater: crochet lace pattern 1, crochet lace pattern 2 and crochet lace pattern 3.
It was such a windy day when we took the pics! 😀

What a great idea. Very pretty.
How adorable! I love the idea of a crocheted collar! You’re so right, it is definitely more comfortable than a turtle neck! It turned out great!
Thank you! 😀
That’s so clever, you used the same yarn that you unravelled – brilliant!
A turtle neck is the one that is all tight up round your neck right? In the Uk we call them polo necks and I’m not a fan either, feels all tight up round my neck for me. I love this idea, so clever and so pretty. Thanks for sharing at #HandmadeMonday
Thank you! 😀 With the unravelled yarn, the collar has the same color and texture as the sweater but the yarn supply is limited – I used all the unravelled yarn from the turtle neck/ polo neck collar for the crochet lace collar.

Very cute! I would never have thought to do that! Thanks for sharing with SYC. I’m sure it’s not intentional, but I’m not seeing a link back to the party.
