The necktie is worked in two separate sections for symmetry, then joined at the back of the neck with 3-needle bind-off. Decreases flow organically within the pattern so that the necktie fits nicely under a button-down collar. A crisp dk weight bamboo yarn makes this tie appropriate for the office, or try a hand-painted silk for a luxurious touch.

The fiber obsession began at six years old, and my first original design was the infamous Barbie tube top. Since Barbie wasn’t paying me a living wage to keep her stylishly dressed, I ended up going to college, knitting feverishly throughout my education to maintain my sanity. I quit my day job at the phone company when I discovered that real people actually liked what I made, and have been designing ever since. I have co-authored two books: The Knitter’s Guide to Yarn Cocktails and The Crocheter’s Guide to Yarn Cocktails. I have designed for several major yarn companies and contributed to various magazines, books, and other publications .
