No respectable fall or winter wardrobe is complete without a stylish dickey. It protects your neck from the chills and looks smashing underneath a cardigan or jacket. This dickey begins with textured ribbing. Then, the front right and front left stockinette stitch sections are attached to the neckline while being knit. Shaping at the front brings the ribbed turtleneck down to a comfortable V shape. The rest of the dickey is worked in stockinette stitch with seed stitch borders. Mix and match your single skeins of yarn for a cool color blocked look and then make a dozen more dickeys to go with every outfit!
