Some years ago I was at a high end craft show and saw a wonderful sterling silver wire crochet collar necklace. I can crochet but I am not that great at it. So I was delighted when I came across this yarn crochet collar necklace tutorial. It is by Emma Escott over on Lululoves. The design is a little like the wire crochet collar I saw.
It is a great tutorial to learn how to crochet the scallops. Using wire instead of yarn will not look the same but I reckon with the right hook size and maybe some adaptation of the pattern, it will look good. Having said that, a yarn (pick something that is soft and won't be itchy) - some of the metallic styles perhaps - can look really trendy with the right outfit.
She made a button loop closure but metal ones can be used too.
Note that despite the pictures of a small child modelling this necklace in the blog post, the pattern is for an adult.
