"This necktie is, quite frankly, utter insanity. I will admit without reservation that this pattern was the one piece in my book I was not confident I would be able to design properly. It's an optical illusion -- what appear to be lots of interlinked spirals are in fact just segments of zigzag patterns offset horizontally by one pair. I'd like to thank Kieran Foley for sowing the seeds that helped my brain grow this fruit. Many people have told me that the resulting pattern almost doesn't look as if it was knitted at all." - Alasdair Post-Quinn BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Double-knit Increase and double-increase Decrease and double-decrease Follow color charts GAUGE 29 sts/38 rows = 4" in double-stockinette fabric; however, expect about a 10% decrease in width due to the increase/decrease patterning PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Crystal Palace Panda Silk COLORWAY 3002, 3011
