The other day my friend Brooke, from the Evanston Chamber of Commerce, mentioned he was starting a blog about ties and wondered if I could knit him a tie. I’d never knit a tie before, but how hard could it be? I took on the challenge and gave it a couple nice personal touches: a seed stitch border and a single cable down the center. I used Tahki Yarns Cotton Classic, which has a nice sheen to it, as well as being very sturdy. I also took some notes so I could write up the pattern for you here!
