A Crocheted Collar

This is my second attempt at a Japanese crochet pattern which some people (not mentioning any names) suggested looked like a giant doily... Well maybe it does... doilies are finely crocheted lace after all - and why not wear a doily poncho round one's neck?
I used an 8-ply cashmere wool blend which is warm and soft to the skin. It was sourced from my favourite wool shop.
I am also quite smit with my ceramic cameo pendant
