HeartStrings' Buffalo Guys and Gals Dickey is
a quick and easy-to-knit dickey suitable for both guys and gals. Using far less
yardage than an entire sweater, you can still get the look of a sweater in a
luxury fiber by wearing this dickey under an open-collared shirt, V or crew neck
shirt. Shown in Earth Lite by Buffalo Gold, 90% bison down/10% nylon,
The dickey is knitted starting with a twisted rib stitch mock
turtleneck collar, then proceeds seamlessly to the raglan-style yoke.
Short row shaping is used to raise the back neckline higher than the front, thus
assuring a comfortable fit that doesn’t feel like it is choking you. This is
just another example of the kind of attention to detail in HeartStrings
patterns. The front flap extension is worked flat – this additional length
in front makes the dickey suitable for wearing under open-collared or V-necked
shirts and blouses.
