False Shirt Front Dickeys

Knitting patterns for false shirt fronts, a.k.a dickeys

Whether for extra warmth or making a fashion statement, a dickey is a nice alternative to knitting and wearing an entire sweater. For other neck coverings, be sure to also visit the Smoke Rings, Knitted Moebius and Collars and Neck Warmers Collections.

I hate wearing sweaters since so many places are overheated but the dickeys under a shirt or vest are a nice way to cheat.
Buffalo Guys and Gals Dickey Buffalo Guys and Gals Dickey
Pattern #A127. Here 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. More ...
Cowl Dickey Cowl Dickey
Pattern #A9BG. Cowl Dickey is a quick, easy-to-knit woman's dickey. The loose-fitting draped neckline results in a comfortable accessory that will fit almost anyone. Wear it with a plain sweater or shirt to add an exquisite touch. More ...
Handsome Dickey Handsome Dickey
Pattern #A27. Not for men only; soft cable-style patterned collar. More ...
Polo Dickey Polo Dickey
Pattern #H15. The Polo Dickey is a versatile sweaterette suitable for wearing under V-neck sweaters and open-necked shirts. More ...
Scrunch Turtleneck Dickey Scrunch Turtleneck Dickey

Side-to-Side Dickey Side-to-Side Dickey
Pattern #A10. Yoke is knit shoulder to shoulder, then stitches for turtleneck collar are picked up and worked in the round. Nice for showing off variegated color yarns. More ...
V-Collar Dickey V-Collar Dickey
Pattern #A8. Collar shapes "magically" with clever bias-knit twisted rib pattern. Longer V-shaped front yoke is suitable for wearing under suit jacket or open collar. More ...
