Nicholas Necktie

On Sale
Added to cart
My husband Nicholas doesn’t wear ties, but occasionally he needs to spiff up, say for a wedding, so he came to me for help. To keep my interest in the knitting, I found a lovely slip-stitch pattern that adds just the right amount of texture and depth. Of course this is a fully-fashioned necktie, not a teensy scarf, with a keeper and everything.

Things you'll love about knitting Nicholas Necktie:
  • It's a small, portable project that only requires 50g of fingering yarn (and you have a delightful number of options in this weight of yarn)
  • The stitch pattern is provided in both written and charted formats
  • Very little finishing work is involved - sew on the keeper and weave in some ends

Things you'll love about wearing Nicholas Necktie:
  • The stitch pattern is subtle yet stylish
  • It's a proper necktie with body in the "show" part and less fabric around the neck, so you won't feel strangled, plus a keeper
  • A hand-crafted tie!
