  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This colorful dickey begins at the top with two-color brioche and garter stitch. Increases and decreases seamlessly shape the collar and expand outward for the yoke. Stripes and textures change in each section for a playful rhythm. This decorative accessory is ideal for using leftover bits of yarn. Cover your ears or fold the neckline for a geometric turtleneck style.

  • A variety of worsted weight yarns from Primrose Yarn Co., Jill Draper Makes Stuff, and Orkney Angora St. Magnus DK held together with lace weight mohair/silk

    I recommend mixing various bits of worsted or aran weight yarns together for the playful stripes. DK weight would also work fine.

    SECTIONS 1, 3, 5, & 7 are striped.
    SECTION 2, 4, & 6 are solid.
