Dickie: a faux turtle neck worn under a blouse or shirt; Van Dyke: a type of Shetland Lace; Dick Van Dyke: A 1960’s sitcom star.
This funky, fresh feminine cowl is great for transitional fall weather or a cold office. Pair it up with the matching Dickie Van Dyke armwarmers and you’ll have a great set to see you through cooler times. Both the cowl and armwarmers are quick and easy knits — either in the round, or flat and seamed — with a clever finishing trick that hides the seam line (if knit flat) or the color “jog” of the stripes (if knit in the round).
