Side-to-Side Dickey False Shirt Front

from HeartStrings Knitting Patterns
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Side-to-Side Dickey False Shirt Front
Side-to-Side Dickey False Shirt Front
Side-to-Side Dickey False Shirt Front sample pattern page

Pattern Description:

Whether for extra warmth or making a fashion statement, a dickey/false shirt front is a nice alternative to knitting and wearing an entire sweater.

Variegated yarn works up especially nicely in the Side-to-Side Dickey, showing off the yarn's colors as vertical stripes in the yoke played off horizontal striped ribbing in the turtleneck collar.

The Side-to-Side Dickey is a practical accessory suitable for the whole family and easy to knit, too. This dickey is made starting at one shoulder of the yoke and is worked in stockinette stitch with moss stitch borders across the front and back sections to the other shoulder. Stitches for the turtleneck are then picked up along the yoke neckline and knit in ribbing.


5 stitches/inch
