DESIGN NOTES
All pieces are crocheted starting from the narrow end. The bracelet and choker are straight strips of laces while the necklace curves a little bit to fit on or just above the collar bone. The bracelet has both edges worked with identical picot-scallops while the necklace and choker have only one edge worked differently from the other. The necklace and choker pattern is also suitable for making a collar (shorter version of a choker that goes round the middle of the neck). The bracelet pattern can also be used to make a choker or collar. Lengths below the neckline may not be suitable for this pattern.
