Add some menswear inspired flair to your outfit! This PDF KNITTING PATTERN gives full instructions and photos for how to create two different versions: a Garter Stitch tie knit flat in chunky silk and wool yarn and a Stockinette Stitch tie knit in the round in some beautiful Microfiber Ribbon. The Garter Stitch version is a quick project that won’t take but one or two evenings. And while its Stockinette Stitch counterpart will take a bit longer, it will also let you practice such techniques as provisionally casting on and knitting in the round using Magic Loop.
