Not a necklace, but a bit of lace for your neck, Doris Chan’s piece has the vintage appeal of a lace collar, the demure coverage of a tiny shawl over the barest fashions, and the panache of a scarf. Crocheted sideways in a whisper-soft blend of cashmere and silk, the lace has ribbing that fans out into a swooping trim inspired by a lace doily edging.

Gauge: 30 st = 5" and 12 rows = 2" in sc blo ribbing; 10 rows = 41⁄2" at deepest point and 5" at widest point in lace trim.
