It’s time for the winter Olympic games again, and along with them, the exciting Ravellinic games on Ravelry. The Colorworks by Debi group is sponsoring a team again. In 2018, we are the CBD Tie for the Gold team, and I have created three exciting new patterns to help you rack up points and take a medal or two! Versailles Tie is the second of three, stranded, wool and silk neckties I designed for this event. The gorgeous, intricate design flows without repeating throughout. I used gold silk in all three patterns but, as always, you the knitter can choose your own fiber. These are great-looking neckties, and once blocked, they have a gorgeous, silky sheen. The stitches are fine, and people find it hard to believe the tie is hand-knit! Give this one a go, and then work up the others. The patterns work up fast, so you’ll have time to make more than one. Go for the gold, knitters. Or at least have a blast as you “Tie for the Gold!”!
