Used t-shirt yarn and followed the 8 strand braid tute on instructables for the collar. Resized and added darts. I'm an impulsive crafter so I'm always super happy when it works!

This looks great! How long were your strands to get the right length for your collar? Thanks for the linky too - awesome!

I measured the front of the collar which was like 18 inches so i multiplied by two to get the strand length. I then doubled that for a string length since you fold a piece in half for 2 strands. I just guessed with 60 inches and I didn't braid to the end, I also ended up cutting off a good 10 inches in the end.
Best to start with long strands but hold the piece up to whatever it is to check length as you go.

Great job!
And Im glad there are a few other "impulsive" craftsters out there, I always get the impression that everyone but me knows exactly where they are going before they even start. Cheesy
