Rye is a vintage-inspired chevron tie. We absolutely love how chevrons naturally create that perfect tie point. We’ve used Heichi by Shibui, a worsted weight silk.

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS
Length: 135 cm / 53”
Width at widest point: 7.5 cm / 3”
Width at narrowest point: 3 cm / 1.25”

YARN
Shibui Heichi (Worsted weight; 100% recycled silk,
96 m / 105 yds per 50g). Shade: Tar x 1 skein.

NEEDLES AND NOTIONS
3.75 mm / 5 US needles, tapestry needle, sewing needle
and matching thread

GAUGE
25 sts & 32 rows = 10 cm / 4” in chevron pattern.
Gauge is not essential for this project but adjust your
needle to give a firm but flexible fabric.

NOTES
The sample tie used the full skein of Heichi. Seaming the
edges is optional but if finishing them we recommend
using sewing thread to avoid too much bulk. Keep your
edges tidy if you prefer the rugged selvedge look.
