dissent

l


the "dissent jabot”, worn by Justice Ginsberg when issuing a ruling with which she does not agree, is not this one, but i thought this one more iconic, the better tribute to our Court.



Dissent is made of nine simple rounds, representing the traditional, if not presently applicable, makeup of the United States Supreme Court. there is no pattern but only simple stitches. anyone can make Dissent.

chain 124+3. (any multiple of two, plus three)
r1: (sc in fouth chain, ch 3) and then every other chain to end. turn.

r2: (ch3, sc in ch3 loop.) repeat to end, ch3, dc in last sc. turn.

  1. Crocheted the collar in thread. Directions are clear.

    What is good way to close collar if you don't know the neck size?

    1. You could add a little necklace extender to it.

  2. Chain 40 and slipstitch back at each end. Tie on. Or add a large bead on one side and leave a long cord on the opposite so they can tie a knot at the right length.

  4. I am humbled and honored to be among like-minded crocheters who are inspired by RBG. I'm trying a modification of this using lace weight yarn and chaining 230 (for the 230 years that the US Supreme Court has been in existence) with a 1.75 mm hook and extra chains in the center to gain the right dimensions. Maybe the final row will have 13 for the 13 colonies? Just dreaming here. Maybe 13 tiny stars on the the ends of the ties too. If I manage that, I'll try to send a picture of one. Thank you again. I think this could be the ultimate statement piece to wear on election day.

    1. I am finishing up the version I came up with and am having a friend test it for me. This is the first time I've ever done something like this. I have a lot packed into something so delicate and simple looking :D Thank you for the inspiration!

  7. Thank you for sharing this pattern. It feels good to make this for a young female to carry on the work modeled by the remarkable RBG!

    1. I would love to send it to you once I get the pattern finalized and tested. Here is what I managed to represent in it: 230 years of the Supreme Court, 50 states, 9 justices (like Joi's original one), 27 years that RBG served, 33 amendments to the Constitution, 3 2-term Presidents and 1 1-term President, and the picot clover similar to Joi's which I figure represents the 3 branches of government :) Clearly I've been having fun playing with yarn ... but with a great purpose. RIP RBG <3

    1. you can call me and I'll talk you thru it. 773.255.7608. basically a picot is like making a little lump in a daisy chain. this calls for a triple picot or 3 little lumps. that's all. so you will chain 4, then make a lump, make another lump and join to the first one with a slip st, then made a third lump and join again with a slip st so all 3 lumps are together and then finish that sector with another ch 4 and sc to middle of next chain 7 space. that's all. picots can be confusing but when you get the hang of it, they're no biggie

    2. Could you pls make a video if possible of R9 the picot row. I hate picots. But determined to get it done. Just not getting this round as written and really about to give up and just shell last row.

      Delete
    3. Ch3, then ch4, picot in ch3 of the ch4 (you'll have 1ch left unworked), slst into the unworked st (ch4), repeat. When you finish the third picot the ch4 you will be looking for to slst in is the ch4 of the initial ch4 you started with. You should then have 3 unworked ch's in that strand, then ch3 and sc in the next ch7 loop. My picots not pretty at all which is why I don't do them but with practice it should get better (hopefully any way). This works for me now.

  14. I’m using gold Cotton thread, 3.25 mm hook. Thank you for the sisterhood of crochet

    1. the standard for this thread crochet stuff is size 10 thread by DMC or Aunt Lydia, available just about everywhere. recommended steel hook size is 1.50 to 1.75 mm. I'm using a 2.25 and just being tight with each knot. Use a smaller hook if you crochet loosely, or a larger hook if you crochet tightly. remember this is art and you can fudge with all of this and call it your own.

  16. I’m lost at row 9. I turn after row 8 and then immediately do a triple picot at chain 3? Is @ch3 mean start the picot at the end of the row? Like ch 3 and turn that into the first loop of the picot?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I believe the @ sign is just a symbol like an * and not telling u where to start (like “at” ). Heres what I did and am liking it. Chain 3, then chain 4. Slip st into 3rd ch of the ch 4 and then also into 4th ch, then ch 4 and do it again (sl st into 3rd and 4th ch) then again. Now u have 3 picots. now attach it to original ch 3 by sl st into TWO LOOPS of the 3rd chain, then chain 3 and single crochet in next ch 7 space and start Again.

    2. I will add that I changed needle size to a much smaller one cuz I wanted this to look more like beads, like the original 🤷‍♀️

  17. I am also lost in step 9. Is there a more descriptive way to explain what we do after the chain 3? I’ve googled picot edging but none of the descriptions match this one. I’d love to finish this collar and start another!

    1. You can tie in a chain or a thread at each end so that it attaches with the ties in a bow, or you can sew on a large bead or button on one side and make a hook on the other. Or you can sew on a hook and eye: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwaramtfTaI.

  19. I don't know what's going on with the end of row stitch. "repeat to end, ch7, dcin same loop." Okay, we have a loop there at the beginning of previous row, am I to ch7 and dc in THAT loop? What is meant by "same loop?" Same loop as what. Ugh, I'm going to have to start over for the 3rd time, I fear.

    ReplyDelete
  20. The same loop is the loop you put your dc or sc and ect in. You have a row of loops in the 1st loop of the new or you sc or dc or whatever is called for and then ch however sts stated and either sc or dc ect in the same loop you have been working in (where you placed the beg sts). But R9 I am gaving trouble with.

  21. Thank you so much for this pattern! It's exactly what I was looking for. I've made it to the end of row 4, and my collar has a distinct ruffle to it. Any idea what I may be doing wrong? I'm using DMC cotton embroidery thread (size 4 I'm guessing? based on label) and a 2.5mm crochet hook. I like the ruffle look actually so I'll probably keep going, but would like to try making this again and have it turn out flat to achieve that 'RBG look.' I wonder if it's because the thread I'm using is a bit stiff? (It's apparently for rugs) Thanks!

    1. If you have a ruffle chances re you foundation chain is too tight. The looser the center stitches the flatter the outside layers can lie. Also, since blocking will stretch things lengthwise (center to outside border), some of the ruffling will go away when that last step is accomplished.

  22. Has anyone been able to figure out the triple picot row? It's driving me crazy!

    1. I don't know if it's right, but here's what I did after watching a few YouTube videos.
      Essentially I did ch3, picot,ch3, sc in 7 chain. What this looked like was ch7(ch3+ch4), slip stitch in middle stitch of chain, ch3, slip stitch in same spot, ch3, slip stitch in same spot again, ch3, sc in 7 chain.

    1. (you probably already know this, but) please be careful of choking hazards. maybe consider using a (non-magnetic) breakaway closure, like maybe (eww) "hook-and-loop" (velcro-style), or snaps. or just, attach it to (or build it into) another garment, rather than creating it as a necklace-style throat obstruction for a baby or other young child.
