Does anyone remember these? They look like a turtleneck that you can wear inside a jacket or shirt. I had a bunch of them when I was younger- Mom thought they were better than a scarf & less likely to get lost. If anyone has a pattern or knows of one, I'd appreciate the help. Thanks in advance.

Appreciation is a wonderful thing: It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.

Elizabeth Zimmermann's book "Knitting Around" has several dickey patterns- they are like the very top of a sweater, with a collar.
If you don't have a copy, most library's have copies of her wonderful books.

Good luck!

Agnes B, Thank you. My favorite cowl is sort of close. Sheila, thanks to you too. I will see if the library has a copy of Knitting Around.

Tam, you are way too funny! Luckily, I don't need any marital aids!

BTW, dickies are great with a button front shirt for discreet breastfeeding.

Shauna,
those are exactly what I was looking for! Whereever did you find them? Thank you so much!

I started looking for dickie patterns when I kept on getting chest colds. I remember wearing them when I was younger. They are great! I love them and wimples. They knit up fast.
