Old Fashioned

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Old Fashioned Link to website or photo www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/old-fashioned-3 What are you most proud of? I love the way the necktie tapers without any visual changes in the pattern. Most knitted neckties look bulky, but Old Fashioned is polished and crisp enough that my husband will wear his to the office. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Remember that you will need three knitting needles to work the 3-needle bind-off. Also, I found it easier to match up to a stockinette stitch gauge. Trying to measure gauge on a chevron angle is tricky!
