Free Backpack Project Bag
If you want the fun of creating a truly unique tie, Brad is the one for you. The concept for this two-colored interwoven creation is simple. The strip of the tie that is typically hidden behind the wider portion in front is showcased when laced through six small horizontal slits. The seed and linen stitches are combined with what are in fact extended buttonholes resulting in a tie that is fun to knit. The color change occurs under the collar so the result is intriguing and the fellow who wears it ends up with a delightful conversation piece hanging from his neck…or yours.
For your convenience, I’ve collected knitting tips and links to videos that will make knitting your project easier and even more fun. Knitting Help
