Knit your own V-Collar Dickey using these clearly-written instructions by knitwear designer Jackie E-S of HeartStrings FiberArts.
V-Collar Dickey is a fashionable woman’s dickey suitable for wearing under a suit jacket, or as a quick dress-up to a V- or crew-neck sweater.
The V-shape of the collar shapes magically with clever bias-knit twisted rib pattern. The longer V-shaped front yoke is suitable for wearing under suit jacket or open collar.
Adult medium. 220 yards sportweight yarn, 5 ½ stitches/inch, size US 6 / 4.0 mm needles suggested. Written stitch instructions.
The V-Collar Dickey is handsome knitted in a variety of yarns and colors. Choose solid colors for a classic tailored look, or in variegated yarns for a casual look. Shown above in a silky mercerized Egyptian cotton. See Additional Images for a picture of two more V-Collar Dickeys, one is knitted in variegated yarn handspun from dyed wool roving and another in solid color cotton.
