Learn to knit Two-Color Brioche with my free YouTube video here!

This two-color brioche dickey is the coziest layer with sweaters and jackets! The dickey journey begins with a luscious turtleneck for ultra warmth. An increase and decrease form a biased section that fold down for a stylish asymmetrical detail. Additional increases flare outward in the yoke. Rotate the dickey around your neck so the corners lay square on your shoulders or shift the fabric so the increase points are centered. The yoke length is customizable so you can have dickeys in all sizes!
