In the Old West, slang for wearing your best clothes was wearing your “best bib and tucker.” My cowl and kerchief design commemorates that time. Bib and Tucker is worked top-down with picked up stitches for the kerchief, providing ample opportunity to enjoy intarsia technique with a manageable number of color changes. The cowl section handles color changes in Garter stripes in an attractive way. Finally, master one-row buttonholes with ease! Enjoy!
