Beaded crochet collar
This is a nice project for a novice crocheter. You can go too far wrong, but need to know how to chain and work treble and double treble crochet stitches. Adding beads is easy, you simply add them in on the last step of the stitch.
The pattern is written using UK terminology and has instructions on how to work the beaded stitches.
Little collars like this are still very fashionable and they look lovely over plain tops and dresses.
