The great thing about knitting or crocheting a collar is that you can have a completely new look, but only have to make the collar! I’m sure you’ve noticed all the little collars popping up on fashion runways and fashion magazines. But have you noticed that we have collar patterns that make it easy to create your collar in the color that is best for you. Nice thing about collars is that they are detachable. Of course, you can stitch them on, but it’s nice to think of them as an alternative to the usual necklace. We’ve used cotton Aunt Lydia’s threads, so they are certainly wearable any season of the year. Put together a fresh look using tops or t-shirts already in your closet. And share them on our Aunt Lydia’s Facebook page.

Hello Fellow Crafters,
My name is Diane and I love Red Heart Yarn. I have crocheted and knitted for many years, so when I started working in the payroll department here I was happy to be able to be around yarn more than at other companies in my past. My first encounter with thread was when I was a small child my grandmother taught me how to make hairpin lace and attach to a hankie. Ooops! I’m dating myself. I also have fond memories of my Mom and me getting the sale papers for yarn and figuring out what patterns we were going to make and trying to be one of the first customers at the store to be sure that we got the yarn we needed. Of course you had to paw through a lot of yarn to get all you wanted in the same dye lot. It was very important that you bought extra so you wouldn’t run out. And my father’s unique take on what he saw my Mom doing while crocheting her doilies, he called it “Knotting Thread”. I still refer to that phrase.
