This Collar Fit For a Queen is going to be the most unique part of a homemade Halloween costume you've ever made. It's for an experience or advanced crocheter, but by the time you're done with it you will definitely appreciate the outcome. Just look at the way it shines so regally and looks glamorous at the same time. It's almost like she's not even wearing a crochet Halloween costume and was made to wear that all the time! You can look like this too if you try out such a unique crochet costume piece.
