Easy Knit Dickey

I am hosting a make a long on my channel.

Several people wanted to learn how to make a knit Dickey. Thus we now have the #makeadickeyMAL !

This is Part Two, and you can find Part One here.

Here are the written details.

Here’s the general details:
3.5 ounces of #4 weight yarn
1 pair of no. 10 or 6 mm knitting needles
( if using a circular, choose a 24” cord )
2 stitch holders ( these hold stitches until used later)
stitch markers
darning needle
tape measure

To begin:
measure off about 60 inches of yarn and cast on 56 stitches.
Knit 5 rows.
Row 6 ( wrong side row ) ; Knit 3, place marker, purl to last 3 stitches, place marker, knit 3.
Row 7, right side row. (Place a progress keeper or wrap a piece of different colored yarn around a stitch and tie it facing forward, to mark the right side.)
Knit across.
Repeat rows 6 and 7 until piece meas#makeadickeymal
Part TWO
Bind off 14 sts of the next two rows as follows.
You should be on the purl side of your work. Knit the first stitch, knit the second stitch, pass the first stitch over the second stitch and drop the second stitch from the needle.
You will bind the stitches as they come to you, bind off the knit stitches knit wise, and the purl stitches purl wise.
Work the row across and turn.
Bind off the next 14 stitches. Work across to the end of the row.
Slip the remaining 28 stitches unto the stitch holder.
Cut your yarn.
Make a second piece the same as this one. Putting the remaining 28 stitches on a second stitch holder.
