Knitted ties are classic!

If you have some experience with your ribber, making them on the knitting machine can be a fun, quick project.

A nice tubular cast on, a simple ribber stitch pattern (we used tuck rib), a bit of Kitchener grafting and voila.... you have an instant gift, craft fair or boutique item.

Watch as we knit ours

Put your ribber to work for a man's tie. No rolled edges and great great texture.

Because of the bulk, this is best knit on a fine gauge or standard gauge machine.

Armed with any fine yarn, a swatch and the Knit it Now Rectangle/Square tool, you can knit this!

Enter your stitch/row gauge and your dimensions to create simple scarves, shawls and blankets.

Why guess?

Use your swatch and determine YOUR stitch and row counts for the perfect size and length for your tie

The "standard" length for a man's tie is 56-58" long.
