I used some zara merino wool I had left over from a scarf I finished crocheting to make this:

CO 8
Row 1: K8
Row 2: P8
Row 3: K2, CB4, K2
Row 4: P8

Repeat 1-4 until desired length around neck

Cast Off, (get your crochet hook) sc in next two spaces, c2, sk 1 sp, sc in next two spaces, and tie off.
Sew a button on opposite end ( I used a small pearl button)... and voila!

Find any flower to crochet and sew on so that when you put on the choker, it'll be to the side. I got snazzy and tacked on a star stud. Enjoy!

Very pretty Smiley.  You have a retro glam look going on.  The lip color, pearls and black sweater work great together Cool.  Thanks for the instructions.

Totally glam, v 1920s.  Lovely stuff!  I'll have to learn to crochet so I can make stuff like that Smiley

*sigh* Can I buy your neck please? I'm sure they could do a transplant. Mine is so short and thick and blech, I've always wanted a graceful neck to adorn with classy chokers like that. It looks lovely! I love the star stud accent, very unexpected. Smiley

Ack! Sorry for taking so long to reply... you can just knit any crochet flower pattern. I pretty much improvised off of the lion's brand site.
Basically, what I did was :

Row 1: Ch 18 turn
Row 2: sc in every ch, ch4, turn
Row 3: sk 2, sc, *ch3, sk2, sc,* repeat from * until you get to the end of row, sc in last stitch, ch 4, turn
Row 4: 3 dc in last sc of last row, sc, *4 dc, dc* repeat from * until end of row, bind off and knot.

Now just coil what you've just made into a flower, and sew in place. I'm not sure how accurate my pattern is, since it was improvised, but it should come out. Hope this helped :-)

That is REALLY cute! It looks amazing on...and I bet it would also look striking by itself (if only to be spotlight!)
I might have to try a simpler version of this. maybe i missed it, but how did you attach it in the back (or wherever it comes together?)
oh nevermind, silly me! i see now.
