Here is a modern take on a simple tie—a little four-stitch cable running vertically in the midst of one-by-one ribbing. This skinny tie is both modern and reminiscent of nostalgic looks from the 50s. The colorful cable is knitted into the tie using the intarsia technique. And surprise the cable disappears inside the knot at the neck. So enjoy this rather playful pattern and create a fun tie for a rather playful fellow, or for yourself.
This pattern is nicely printed on card stock in a handy pocket size. A list of all abbreviations, and glossary of terms are included.

The kit for this accessory, complete with pattern and yarn, comes in a backpack-style project bag. On the front of the backpack is a zippered pouch with a porthole. You can insert the ball of yarn from which you’re knitting and run the yarn through the porthole, so if you like, you can even knit while walking down the street.
