This accessory was inspired by the remarkable life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and her ceaseless devotion to progressive values and doing the right thing. We could all stand to be a bit more like RBG.

We Dissent is a collar/necklace that is worked in double stranded worsted weight yarn and is customizable so you can have as many or as few sparkles as you would like (though, don’t we all want more sparkles?).

Your purchase includes written instructions and construction notes, photographs, and troubleshooting from me, should you need it.

This pattern uses US crochet terminology throughout and is written in English. It works up pretty quickly at an advanced beginner/intermediate level without using a ton of yarn.

-Gauge: The part of the collar closest to the neck measures about 12” (not including the long tie chains) once blocked. The ends aren’t necessarily meant to, and probably won’t, meet in the back. At the longest point, the collar measures about 4.5-4.75”. If you find you want a looser collar, go up a hook size. If you want smaller, go down a size.
