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 person who wears it ends up with a delightful conversation piece hanging from his neck…or yours.
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 tie, 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.
