“Handmade handsome”
A tweedy, hand-knit tie makes a great gift for the relaxed—yet refined—gentleman or lady. Knit in the round, this Necktie is cleverly shaped to narrow around the neck and widen towards the ends, with one end a little wider than the other. A gentle nod to rustic-chic, it’s the perfect way to showcase your self-striping sock yarn where you can see it!

We knit the Necktie in a self-striping sock yarn—Regia 4ply Tweed Color. This sturdy blend of wool and polyamide plays with bands of color, with occasional tweedy flecks popping in. The tightly plied structure gives great shape retention—just right for the ingenious shaping of our tie!

FINISHED SIZE
Approx. 56/142cm long x 2 1/2”/6.5cm; 1”/2.5cm wide at neck;
1 1/2”/4cm wide at tail.

YARN
1 skein Regia 4ply Tweed Color (438 yds/400m each). Or approx. 300 yds/275m of fingering-weight yarn.
Shown in 7491-Zauberwald.

NEEDLES & NOTIONS
US 1 (2.25mm) set of 4 double-point needles, or size to obtain gauge.
2 locking markers.
18”/46cm of 1”/2.5cm wide grosgrain ribbon (optional).
Darning needle.

GAUGE
Approx. 8 sts= 1”/2.5cm in stockinette stitch, after blocking. Note: To measure gauge, knit first few inches of tie, then lay flat and measure width. It should be approx. 1”/2.5cm. If it’s a little narrower or wider, you can adjust your needle size without reknitting. Or, if you like the fabric (aim for a dense fabric that will keep it’s integrity), keep going. Knitter’s choice!
