Sometimes a soft mohair collar to keep your neck warm would be just the perfect little accessory, so why not whip one up? Or for that matter, make a bunch in different sizes, as this would surely be adorable for a little girl as well, right? My crocheted striped mohair collar with a ribbon tie is so simple to make, and depending on the yarn you choose as well as the ribbon tie, could go with so many looks, not to mention perfect for a cool spring day.
Ah yes, and what might be the difference between a cowl and a collar you ask? Keep on reading, and we shall explore that issue!
The difference between a crocheted cowl and a crocheted collar may just be how it is worn, or it may be that the dimensions are different, that is something you'll have to decide for yourself. The look you'll want to achieve is that seen in the photo here, the question is how those dimensions play themselves out depending on whether this is a collar to wear with a coat of some kind, or over a sweater, in which case it should be quit a bit smaller height wise.
I highly suggest making yourself a little pattern from a long rectangle of fabric. I'd even poke a hole in the felt and attach a ribbon, as it is worth the effort to get this right! Once you know the size you'd like to make your long rectangle, well the rest is just smooth sailing, or rather crocheting.

If you'd prefer buttons, by all means, sew them on, and button up where ever you like as the double crochet stitch is quite loose. Enjoy.
