I've been working all Spring on this little design and it's finally ready!! I love the design ethos of Steampunk, so I designed a steamy choker with a stylized flower petal motif. I did mine in a deep antique chocolate color, a steamy influenced choice. Hmm.. "antique chocolate".. I like that phrase! Might use it as a future pattern name :) I've also been told it looks like shells and waves, which would make it look fantastic in opalescent whites, or sparkling blues and greens.
It uses ribbon tiebacks so it will fit any size neck, and is my first fully illustrated pattern with MANY annotated photos. An adventurous beginner could certainly complete this quickly.
You can buy the pattern at my Etsy store, or as an instant download at my Ravelry shop. You do NOT need a Ravelry account to just buy from Ravelry, only to access the rest of the site. The design has been fully 3rd party tested (like all my designs) and is available for $3.50. My chokers are $4.00, but due to the current popularity of Steampunk, I'm going to be offering this at the special introductory price of $3.50 until Aug. 1st. Then it will be the regular price of $4.00... so get it soon for the discount! You don't need to make it right away, you'll just have the pattern on hand (at the discounted price) for any time you want to make it in the future.
P.S. If you like this design, please feel free to blog, pin, facebook, tweet etc. with the images and/or info above. I'm a new designer and could really use some help getting the word out about my designs!
