You’re going to love the Crochet Dickie Pattern. 

For me crochet dickeys reminds me of being younger, wearing these as a kid.

But this turtleneck dickey is just perfect inside a winter coat, so great to when you don’t want to wear a bulky sweater, but still stay warm.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.
