I love that this easy textured crochet dickey can be styled in multiple ways. This concept of a crochet dickey that looks more like a bid came following the purchase of my jacket. I still want to style the jack without using scarves. So, on days I am wearing my jacket, this crochet dickey would come in handy, as it still keeps my neck and chest warm.
Some months ago, I made the a convertible cowl that can be styled as a vest and in many more ways. The cowl is also a free pattern here on the blog.
It is kind of cool that I want to make one in every color to fit different occasions.
