  • It would have to be a green tea shave ice with mochi balls and anko (sweet red beans) with a rainbow straw.

    • Tulips

      • A bright shining sun

        • Linda, can you tell me how to get a photo in the circle here; I can do it in the Lounge but I can’t figure out how to do it here. Thanks!

        • A snow capped mountain range.

        • Blue and Gold intertwined hearts!!

        • A ball of yarn with two needles happily sticking out of it … of course!

        • A moose with big antlers ~~/\~~

        • I would knit a mug of coffee.

        • Home is where the heart ❤️ is, so I would knit our little (TINY) summer cottage that my parents built themselves. My father ( a plumber by profession) designed it and they cleared the grounds and hammered away in their spare time. Any assorted collection of relatives who came to visit chipped in with a nail or two, or by shifting a couple of wheelbarrows worth of soil, and my grandfather on my mother’s side of the family did the twin open fireplaces and chimney stack. I was two weeks old when I came there for the first time. It has been the centre of my universe ever since, incongruities and all. That is where I am “home” in the world, irrespective of where I live…

      • A cat or kitten

    • ooh, so many possibilities. I think probably a flower. Or maybe a vegetable.

      • Clouds and rain (we moved to Portland)

  • This time of year I’d choose daffodils or crocuses!

    • It would have to be an owl

      • A Ukrainian motif

        • A giraffe, and give it to my granddaughter. Of course, then my other granddaughter would want a sloth, and then…

        • Sunflowers, their national flower.

      • It would be a sheep!

  • Definitely a chocolate chip cookie! I’ve never met one I didn’t like!

    • Eyeglasses

  • A couple of barbecued spare ribs and Cole slaw on a white dickie would be fun.

    • The Seattle skyline because I just moved away and will miss it, or a hare. I’m not picky.

      • A horned beetle for my entomologist son.

    • A line of Border Collie motifs!!

      • My Border Collie would like that, but I think a knitted paw print would be easier, and also would blend in nicely with any he left in the course of an overly joyful greeting.

        • Paw print would be great, close to the heart. Or a crow Cuz they’re so dang smart.

  • T Rex or pterasaur

  • An oyster with a pearl for me.

    • A bird! Tweet tweet! I think I’ll try duplicate stitch.

  • I am a great admirer of the octopus. This would be a challenge , but worth the effort

    • I like the octopus too! Good idea.

  • A spring bouquet tied with a ribbon.

  • Knitting needles and a ball if yarn of course!

    • Love it!

      • A curling rock! I’m Canadian lol

    • I would do a sheep.

  • Dandelion!

  • Definitely a golf club and golf ball in white on a black dickie!

    • That is what I would want but with an argyle dickie

      • Love that I dea

  • Right now? A sunflower in honor of everyone in Ukraine…

    • I concur.

    • … encircled in a map of Ukraine

    • Yes, this.

  • A palm tree!

  • A dark purple pansey on a whisper background.

  • I think I’d have to go with a cup of brown liquid. Is it coffee? Is it tea? You decide! ☕️

  • A 2-lane highway heading for a Smokey Mtn. sunrise!

  • Flower- or perhaps bouquet

  • My horse of course

    • Of course my horse! Or a sunflower…

  • a cup of tea with a slice of lemon

  • A bunny, since I live on Bunny Run!

  • Cat face

  • A sprig of Heather!

  • A border collie and some Shetland sheep. Possibly pretty ambitious given the size limitations, but why not?

  • A bluebird for me!

  • I would choose a llama.

    • A dogwood flower or two, with leaves.

  • The motif on my dickie would be a cat. No, wait, a glass of red wine. On further review, a chunk of cheese. Yes, but really maybe a big old spruce tree with snow. Hmmmm. I’m beginning to see the problem.

  • My motif of choice would absolutely be our family’s gray kitten – but dickies make my brain itch! Something about them . . . hmmm . . . not sure what it is . . . But that is the awesome thing about knitting and fashion – to each their own! Anyway – a kitten – most definitely a mischievous – yarn chewing kitten.

    • I have a yarn-chewing puppy! My 4-month old black lab has got hold of my Shibui Silk Tweed project at least twice in the past week (I have to be more careful when I set it down) and miraculously, no damage to either yarn ball or the project. I think he needs to be on my dickie 🙂

  • A cat

  • One of those lovely producers of wool…a sheep!

  • Mt. Katahdin in Maine, the glorious end of the AT.

    • Oh, good one – me, too! And Katahdin is also very sacred to Indigenous people here in Maine. So to honor both the mountain and the people who once lived in what we call Baxter State Park.

  • A black cat on barn red.

  • Radio signals would be my motif.

  • I think I would like a sheep

  • Oh, a cover of a book for sure. Choosing which cover would be the hard part—that’s like choosing a favorite child!

    • I like this one! There’s a pattern on Ravelry to make a sweater that looks like a Penguin Classic book, that could be adapted. But yes, which title would be the problem…..

      • Amazing work Allison: really lovely symmetry in the lobster, and who would have thought there could be beauty in a cooked piece of meat. You are a designer. For me. A midnight blue tiled background covered in words, like the Concorde subway station in Paris but reversed, in shiny, shiny yarn, fine enough to show the same serif font.

        • oh dorothy, one for me too please! 🙂

  • Oooo, I’d want mine to rock a reproduction of VanGogh’s The Starry Night. Hmmm, or perhaps Edvard Munch’s The Scream. Yes, definitely The Scream!

  • A pile of books!

  • a dandelion blowing out it’s tiny seeds

  • A blue crabbed but cooked so it would be red!

  • A Labrador Retriever, my favorite breed. No food on my clothing please.

  • A dragonfly if it were for me, a horse for my granddaughter, a black cat for my niece, or a seahorse for my sister-in-law, combining her love of ocean and horses (that works, yes?) I quite possibly would not ever finish them, however, unlike Allison. Beautiful job on these!

    • What we all want the most – peace. I would like a peace sign or two palms together (OR peace sign and heart)

  • Sheep

  • Kittens!

  • When my son was in grade school, I would tuck into his lunch box a daily sketch of a pig doing unusual things (such as a flying like a costumed super hero) with a matching caption. A favorite was “Pig Roy Was Here.” I think that would make a fine dickie decoration.

  • White dickie with a red maple leaf! O Canada.

  • A kitty!

  • Some kind of flower, Kaffe Cassette style

    • Damn sneaky autocorrect! Kaffe Fassett.

  • I would make an otter on mine.

  • Tulip

  • You are an impressive knitter Allison!! I’m in awe;) I’d like a unicorn on my dickie, but I could never design and knit something like that. Maybe duplicate stitch the design on?

  • I would knit an Echinacea pallida, Pale Purple Coneflower. Assuming of course that I learn intarsia.

  • Definitely my dog Bear – surrounded by a heart halo – he is my knitting buddy and spends most of his time on my lap.

  • A big snowflake! No, not crazy, i just like winter.

  • I would knit a bight yellow Sunflower

    • Dearest Allison,

      Can we ramp up the adventure quotient for this nifty knitting party? I say “Go Wild” and, in so doing, I nominate a silverback gorilla for decorating the dickie. Imagine the shading gradients possible in that little project! I am an inveterate gorilla lover and have, in fact, tracked them in Africa three separate times. My claim to fame is being smacked on the behind by a 400 lb. male who became a bit smitten with me in the jungle. My husband almost had heart failure witnessing the gorilla charge. But I had the time of my life. Thrilling!
      So, it’s a big boy gorilla for me.

      Your admirer,
      Cathy Gronewold

  • A black dickie with either green or yellow cat eyes looking at the person in front of me.

  • My dickie would have a Brittany dog on it, with a blue background

  • This Grandma is always up to a challenge, the latest ones being hoodies with zippers. One had to have puzzle pieces and lego on it and the other “my dog on the back” which involved several different photos of said anmal, photocopying to exactly the right size to fit the knitting graph paper, sticking it onto the window in order to trace around (never mind what the neighbours said)before coming up with the final garment. Yes it’s a labour of love!

  • A girl doing a cartwheel!

  • A person frantically knitting a dickie, of course!

  • A wedge of cheddar cheese.

  • My motif would have to be a book!

  • I think it should be a winter scene so I say an ice boat sailing on the frozen river (in front of my house).

  • I would need a the face of a Scottish Highland Cow. But wouldn’t that be too easy?

  • I think a smiling sun.

  • I would add a tulip

  • A sugar skull (Día de los muertos )

  • A Birthday Cake…because sometimes I don’t get one. 🙁

  • Cup of tea!

  • I think I would put my cat on it. He wants to be with me all the time. I know because of all the fur he leaves on me…

  • A coconut palm, to remind me that this cold weather will also pass.

  • If you had asked a month ago, I would have responded “a crab,” but I now want a sunflower.

    • A tandem bicycle.

  • If I were to knit an intarsia dickie it would probably depict a hummingbird, a fish, or a Maltese puppy. Hmmmm…….

  • A hippo or jellyfish for my daughter. She loves creatures who appear friendly and are actually quite deadly!

  • Alas, a peace symbol or a dove in flight with an olive branch in its beak.

  • A few bands of colourwork designs across the bottom.

  • A sunflower for Ukraine and because I also love sunflowers

  • A beautiful Cornish Pilot Gig! Only problem would be that I could not wear it around my rowing club pals, because they would each want one!

  • Pasta of course 🙂

  • A sleeping cat curled up around itself, which would have the added benefit of looking vaguely like a ball of yarn.

  • Omg everything about this is fabulous.

    I’d knit a persimmon on mine.

  • A piece of layer cake.

  • years ago when I was doing cross stitch, I tried to make a pattern for my Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. But it never got done. Sometimes still sad.

  • Knitting needles through a ball of yarn

  • A pickle!

  • Probably a yarn ball or a sheep for everyday and if it was for a party, then it would have to be a glass of white wine

  • My dog (assuming it doesn’t have to be food!)

  • I would put a leaf motif on mine- on a flower.

  • Lilacs, somehow…

  • Probably a whale.

  • Puppy paw prints or a big tire track!

  • A sheep. Or two. Or three.

  • A cup of coffee (a latte?) or maybe spaghetti and meatballs (on white or cream of course)

  • It would either be a couple of cats in different positions or a couple of sheep standing around! Either would be cute & fun to knit!

  • Fleur de lis

  • A perfectly ripe Colorado peach!

  • The head of an orange tabby cat, I have been owned by a number of orange tabbies, my current one is Liam.

  • A Lenten Rose for a reminder that spring is coming.

  • Mine would be a heart, since that’s my favorite motif

  • A redwood tree with the branches as needles

  • Seashells and beach glass to remind me of warm weather during dickie season

  • I’m also a quilter and I’m from Ohio, so I’d add an Ohio Star motif.

  • A sunflower

  • Musical instrument- maybe a guitar or violin

  • Definitely a sunflower….it’s my favorite flower and it honors Ukraine.

  • My old cat Tiger. He was my knitting helper for 15 years.

  • Definitely a cat

  • I’ve just completed my first (and last). intarsia project and if it wasn’t such a huge pain, I’d maybe consider a grapes motif on a grey background.

  • I would make this a shell, with pictures of shells. Though the idea of a dickie as a cropped sweater, which it rather resembles in the lobster version photo, is also appealing.

    And if you are wearing red pants to the holiday party, Nantucket reds (seen in the background) are the way to go.

  • I can’t choose between a daisy or a map of my home state, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

  • I would want a pizza slice.

  • A newt

  • I would knit a bumblebee. Or a sand dollar.

  • Coconut shrimp

  • So many great ideas! I guess I would go with the lobster. He’s cute and you’ve already figured out how to do it!

  • My sewing machine!

  • We are allowed to raise chickens within the city radius. We have had 5 chickens for about 9 months. They are so rewarding, clever and quite hilarious. I would think one of my red hens on a brownish green background

  • Mt. Everest would be awesome!

  • A green chile! From Hatch, New Mexico.

  • I have an emu named Casanova. He loves to be petted. He’s getting up in years so I’d knit his image into a dickey to have him around for a good long time.

  • Those dickies are marvelous! I’ll knit mine adorned with a martini. Cheers!

  • A peacock feather

  • Beans of course!

  • A taco for my daughter! Definitely a taco. I love what you made and am looking forward to knitting that tote-already have the Field Guide

  • I wouldn’t knit a motif- the simple dickie pattern is perfect – let the yarn speak for itself and let my interests remain a mystery.

  • Flowers to remind me of spring

  • I would like a pine tree!

  • I’d knit a cat.

  • Mind the gap!

  • Something from the outdoors, like a couple of fir trees.

  • A Swallowtail Butterfly

  • I actually think if I added a picture I might wear a dickie. That might require some thoughts. But gah now you want to know what it would be???? Well maybe I need a holiday one with maybe wreath or some such. But then if you knit a wreath dickie you will probably need a Halloween one to go with it. And once the Halloween one is knit you will probably start thinking that you cant wear the wreath one in the cold January and February months in Michigan so you probably need a third one as well. And if you knit three dickies in one year you probably will need some more thoughts about dickies. I need a nap. 😉

  • a beautiful parasol mushroom (preferably a Macrolepiota – google it!) on a dark green background!

  • A ginko leaf in golden autumn glory.

  • One single beautiful daisy!

  • a frog!!

  • I love popcorn and I think that would be fun to design and knit!

  • I’d do a row of shrimp for my daughter.

  • I’m insane and so because it’s what I want, I would intarsia a birch sapling with the leaves they have on them over the winter. If you’ve ever seen one (or, better yet, heard one) you’ll know why. Magical.

  • The motif on my dickie will be little Grogu. This is the way.

  • A ball of yarn with knitting needles!

  • Indigo blue with a white/cream/natural sheep coloured Celtic knot, like my ankle tattoo and on my “business” card. And a mock turtle neck. Thanks for the chance!

  • I would knit a black and white tuxedo cat!

  • Excellent shading on the drumstick! I would probably go for a flower motif.

  • Since I live in Buffalo NY, a buffalo chicken wing .

  • Ooh, I hope I win this one! Allison, following your lead of turkeys and lobster, I would try a beautiful silver salmon swimming in Alaskan waters. That could use at least six colors, I think!

  • Umm I love that green with with a bouquet of posies.

  • I’d knit a ball of yarn on my dickie!

  • It would have to be knitting needles and a ball of yarn.

  • Oh I would definitely attempt to create a design of my sweet Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier on my dickie. On a background of green because these dogs are originally from Ireland. But I have a feeling the design would elicit the same comment my dog does: “Is that a Goldendoodle?”!

  • I would knit a simplified airplane. Since my drawing/intarsia skills are minimal, it would need to be simple.

  • Since I’m a Texas girl, I would have to make it a bluebonnet!
