Tatted Collar for an Infant

Recently, someone on the tatting lists online asked where they could find a tatted collar for a little girl. Well, I looked and looked and could only find collars for adults. So I thought I’d put one together. Besides, it will be fun for me to add this to something for my granddaughter.

This pattern is a beginner level pattern and requires only one shuttle. You can make it larger by using a larger thread or adding more motifs for added length. As it is, it will fit a shirt that is 5-6 inches (13-15 cm) from center front to center back.

This pattern was tatted with size 30 DMC Cebelia thread.
