I love the look of a nice collar; however, it is usually accompanied by the rest of the garment, which tends to add some unflattering overall bulk. Enter the dickey: a mock collar with the illusion of a full garment. This crochet dickey pattern includes instructions for two different collar styles. I suggest making both looks in a variety of colors, and wearing them under all of your dresses, t-shirts, and sweaters. This one skein project is the perfect way to class up your existent wardrobe.
