Hello, everyone! Today’s project is an extra-special project for Fathers’ Day, a necktie!
I’m not current into men’s fashion, but apparently my sweetheart is, and word has it that knit ties are in! Well, I don’t knit, and I’m sure some of you don’t either, but….. we can Tunisian Crochet!
I worked this pattern using a Tunisian Simple Stitch, so that all of my beginner crocheters could still follow along and crochet this beautiful project for the Dad in their lives.
Here are three things to know about knit ties:
1. They are flat at the end, not pointed. They’re more on the casual side of the wardrobe, and as such, they don’t follow the traditional tie rules.
2. They are narrow. Also known as “skinny” ties. This is because they are bulkier than your standard silk tie, and therefore need to be narrower in order to avoid creating a ginormous knot at the neck.
3. They are usually worn with a sweater and dress pants ensemble. Knit ties are too casual to wear with a suit.
What you’ll need:
Yarn: 1 Skein of Woolike, by Loops and Threads, or any fingering (size 1) yarn.
Hook: 3 mm Tunisian Hook
2 mm standard hook
Additional materials: Scissors, tapestry needle, measuring tape. You’ll also need to block your work, so you will need either a handheld steamer or a clothes iron with a steam option, and an ironing board or cotton towel.
Average necktie length: 56-58 inches (142-147 cm). This is a narrow
(or “skinny”) necktie.
