PATTERN DETAILS

This dashing little accessory is a quick knit that is simple yet satisfying to work up. I designed this tie using a sport-weight wool blend yarn that has enough firmness to keep its shape and add some interesting texture to the finished tie. This is a great way to use up little scraps of gorgeous yarn you simply can't bear to throw out or make useful swatches for yarns you would like to experiment with. I've included three sizes Small, Medium and Large (in parenthesis) but by using different yarns and needle sizes you could create any sized tie you wanted! The sky is the limit... Have fun! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl cast on and bind off simple hand stitching GAUGE Seed Stitch worked with size 7 US needles: 5 stitches x 9 rows = 1 inch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS small medium large SUGGESTED YARN 60 yards of Sport weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Classic Elite Yarn Portland Tweed

I am a twenty-something year old wife and stay at home mom who is only slightly obsessed with knitting and designing... only slightly. I love to dance poorly, eat, play with my 10 month old son and watch movies with his dad. I've been knitting for over 15 years and sell my designs and products in my Etsy shop, Ugly Mugwump Designs.
