I have been wanting to try to knit a tie for a while now and with Father's Day coming up (it was when I started) I decided to give it a go.  It's pretty easy to make and soft to wear!

Step 1: Supplies

All you really need for this project is yarn and a knitting needle, but I will tell you everything I used.


<p>I have a new show on You Tube called For the love of Fashion and Cosplay and I was thinking about featuring your pattern in the next episode. The first episode is up! Please check it out!</p><p>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37xcEpZkcM4</p>
<p>I love that tutorial!! If I made it, I would follow your instruction except I would increase on both ends every odd row and knit all the way to the end every even row.</p>
I can't wait to try this out! :) how much yarn did you end up using? would a 200 yd/183m ball be enough?
I'm sorry, I'm exactly sure, but I used Red Heart Super Saver which appears to come on a ball of 364 yards and I don't think I even used half, so you should be set with 200 yards. It's mainly the first fat part that uses the yarn, then it's just a bunch of short rows.
It could be a classy sort of shawl! I'd like to try it sometime and make my boyfriend wear it . :)
Awesome :)
Love this! I think I might just have to try a crochet version...
I think that sounds like a great idea! I thought about crocheting a tie, but my only crochet experience so far is with amigurumi, so I thought I would stick with what I know for now. I'd love to see it if you do it!
i think this is awesome just wondering the person in the photo doesn't look old so is this your boyfriend or something?
Thanks! Actually, that's me and my husband is taking the picture.
That is fantastic!
Great idea and wonderful job!
Thanks :)
Very cute, lady! :D
Thanks! I just noticed you can see the Instructables robot that is in the red shirt I am wearing under the white button up :)
The classic design would be based off the vintage 60's &quot;Rooster knit&quot; tie. Straight with square end.
