The High Tea Collar from Purl3Agony (aka Donna Herron) is from the second genre, and it’s a great little pattern for using a pretty yarn and some lace and cabling skills to make a statement piece.
One thing that’s cool about this pattern is that it is closed with a button so you can go super fancy with the button and wear that part in front like a collar, or keep it in the back more like a necklace. This one certainly would be fun for gift knitting or to whip up and wear to a holiday party.
