From Weldon’s Practical Knitter, Thirty-Fourth Series (1897). “The most suitable colors are olive green, grayish blue, dark red, dark blue, and black. One ball of knitting silk, if it contains an ounce, will be sufficient for one necktie, so the cost will not be excessive. A pair of steel knitting needles, No. 14, will also be required.”

Scarf is knit in k2, p2 ribbing, or in moss stitch (as illustrated) “These neckties stretch considerably in wear, so it is well not to make them too long at first”
