Hi, Guys and Welcome to Studio Knit. Today, we are going to KNIT a Men’s NeckTIE
for Father’s Day! Ties are one of the most popular Father’s
Day gifts. But this year, do not bore your Dad with a store-bought tie. For under ten
dollars, give your father a classic knit tie made with love. The Materials we will use are
Size 8 US needles Worsted Weight YARN
Tapestry Needle Scissors It’s always fun to team up with other Kin
Community Partners and share their ideas with you. So be sure to check out all of the great
videos in this Father’s Day collaboration with my creative friends. Links to their videos
are in the description below. I have included a written knitting pattern
for this men’s neck tie, as well! So, let’s get started. This is a medium sized to skinny sized tie.
So, it’s two and a half inches wide. And we are going to cast on twelve stitches. That
is perfect. After we cast on, it’s time to knit the entire
TIE in the gorgeous SEED STITCH. To knit in seed stitch, we simply knit Row One starting
with the Knit Stitch. So we will Knit, Purl, Knit, Purl… all the way down the row. And on the second row, we start with the PURL
Stitch. So we will Purl, Knit, Purl, Knit… all the way down the row. And just repeat.
The next row, we will start with Knit, the row after that you start with Purl and you
just carry on. Once you get the hang of this simple SEED
Stitch, continue knitting until your tie measures 21 inches. Then, it’s time for our first decrease row.
Simply knit two together, continue in the SEED Stitch, then finish by knitting two together.
You will have ten stitches remaining. After knitting eight rows, let’s create one
more decrease row by knitting two together, continue in the SEED Stitch, then finish by
knitting two together. Now we have 8 stitches remaining. Then simply knit in the SEED STITCH until
your tie measures anywhere between 57 & 59 inches in length. And then Bind off and weave
in the ends. Let’s add a fun KEEPER LOOP to the back of
the tie. This helps keep the TAIL of the tie in place. I had fun just grabbing some sparkly
scrap yarn and I knit four quick rows. Just make sure that when you sew your KEEPER LOOP
to the back of your tie, to sew into the seed to prevent seeing it from the front. Thank you so much for watching Studio Knit!
