Rock and Troll Monday


I absolutely love this lacy little collar for Citri Troll. It's too feminine for a boy Troll, in my opinion, but it looks great on the girls.

The Rock and Troll pattern is in my 2016 pdf snowflake booklet Sea Quell, benefiting the fight against multiple sclerosis, available only via tax-deductible donation of at least $15 to my dear husband's 2016 MS-150 fund here or my 2016 MS-150 fund here. Please note that I no longer have access to personal email (or my blog) during the work day, and I volunteer teach on Tuesday nights, so may be unable to respond until evenings and may not be able to respond at all on Tuesdays.


As in years past, if you make a donation and do not hear back from me or my husband within a couple of days, please email me at snowcatcher at att dot net to make sure I know your donation has been made. I do sincerely try to get pdf booklets emailed out the same day each time a donation is made if I am able.


In addition to the Rock and Troll pattern, this new pdf booklet includes 11 snowflake patterns and 9 snowflake frames. (I have republished two patterns from my blog in this booklet, the Moss Snowflake and the Vitamin C Snowflake Frame.)


Last week's pattern features three poncho versions designed specifically for the Trolls, and two weeks ago I shared the pattern for a Troll Necklace (plus a child-sized version for pint-sized Troll lovers). I'm hoping to work up one more cute little clothing essential for the Trolls for next week, and then I'll get back to snowflakes. Or flower flakes... We need some more spring, don't we?

You may do whatever you'd like with collars you make from this pattern, but you may not sell or republish the pattern. Thanks, and enjoy!


Finished Size: 4 inches across folded out flat, 2.25 inches across shoulders folded flat
Materials: Size 10 crochet thread, size 7 crochet hook

NOTE: This project includes small parts that could be swallowed by children who put things in their mouths.
