Afrodite Colar (Aphrodite Collar) My New Project Before Christmas 2011

I am working on a new project right before Christmas this year.  It's something I haven't tried before and I think I'm going to enjoy this challenge.

I bought a pattern from Silvia called the, Afrodite Colar.  It's in Portuguese and I've been wearing out the Babelfish page on yahoo this weekend.

Basically, it's a floral collar which can probably double as a neck warmer, scarf or a thick necklace:

It's also featured at Miss Flor's crochet blog:

I settled on using a size F Clover hook for the green necklace/leaf part and a size C Clover hook for my flowers.  These flowers pictured are not from the pattern, just some that I had made up before holding 2 strands of size 10 thread together.  The green necklace/leaf part is also made holding 2 strands of size 10 thread together.

Here are some progress pictures:
