I started by taking in a men's shirt. If you need help taking in a big shirt you can check out this post I did. After I took it in I cut off the collar. I followed the tutorial from New Stitch a Day on How to Crochet a Circle and Picot Edging. Using a G hook, I followed the instructions which called for me to start a chain in multiples of 5 plus 1. I crocheted until my chain went the length of my collar. It ended up being 56. If I were to do it again I think I would do 61 stitches. I followed the tutorial. It was not perfect but I tried my best. I pinned the yarn collar onto the shirt and sewed it on with my sewing machine. I didn't sew every piece, just the outline of the crocheted part.
So far it has held up well! I have even washed it and it still looks like new.
