Forget-Me-Not Dog Collar, 1906

Forget-Me-Not Dog Collar
New Idea Woman's Magazine, June 1906

Note I should have put in the original post: It's a ladies' choker rather than a collar for a dog. Sorry guys! Note added 9/23/2006.

Materials: 1 clasp with 3 eyelets, 3 bunches turquoise beads, 2 bunches yellow beads, 1 spool white sewing silk, 2 needles No. 14 "Milliners."
Thread both ends of a 40-inch thread of silk and fasten to one end of clasp in the center of silk.
Thread 2 blue beads on right needle and pass left needle through; point of needle points toward clasp.
*Thread 4 blue beads on the right needle and 2 blue on the left needle and pass left needle through the 2 beads of the 4 on the right needle.
*Repeat from * until chain is finished and fasten. Three chains made by the foregoing directions are required to make the dog collar illustrated. The yellow centers are put in after all three chains are finished, thus: Thread a needle with silk about 21 inches long and fasten with a strong knot and sew a yellow bead in the center of each flower.
If desired, white, pale pink, green or lavender beads may be substituted for the turquoise blue, continuing to use the yellow beads for the centers as directed.

Note: I have no idea how many beads are in a "bunch" but you could probably approximate from the picture.

I never would have thought the pattern was from 1906; it reminded me of the 60s and 70s.

And one could easily update the pattern by adding a few metal spikes!

I think I remember these from the 70's. Damn.

Its good to know Martha Stewart was crafting back then in 1906:
If desired, white, pale pink, green or lavender beads may be substituted for the turquoise blue, continuing to use the yellow beads for the centers as directed.

Only yellow bead centers damn it!! Only yellow!
And that is a good thing.

Black centers with red petals might actually be cool.
