PATTERN NOTES
Pair a classic looking yarn like Deluxe DK Tweed with a classic men’s accessory, and you’ve got yourself a winner. The tweedy and rustic nature of the yarn gives a manly yet casual look to this stylish neckwear. Slipped stitches along each edge, give this tie a polished feel, while a single slipped stockinette spine adds just the right amount of detail. Because this tie is knit, it provides a bit of stretchiness around the neck – perfect for the man in your life who doesn’t like to wear ties.

This tie is worked flat from point to point, beginning and ending with just three stitches.
Slip all stitches purlwise.
