The Mountain Armor is a modern take on a classic design. This knit design is based off a dickie concept. One of my favorite things is to refine or put a spin on something vintage, classic, or nostalgic, and see how it conforms to today’s times. Dickie’s were an odd piece of fashion back in the day for men. A false shirt front. The cables here help keep some of the masculinity. The length helps keep the tradition of a standard scarf. The versatility comes in with the neck portion being a cowl. A variety of simple stitches helps keeps this knit piece fun and interesting. There is no back to this design. It is worn as an accessory over garments.
