I just started knitting a few weeks ago, and just finished my first project. I knit a basic scarf out of Plymouth Baby Grand Alpaca yarn- it came out great! Should make a nice gift for my girlfriend…
Anyway, I’m ready to start my next project, and I thought it would be sort of cool to make myself a necktie in a really bright color. However, most of the patterns I’ve found on the internet produce a tie with a squared-off end, which I think looks goofy. I’d much prefer a pattern that produces a tie with a standard, tapered end like a regular tie. The few patterns I did find that met my needs used yarn that I didn’t like very much- for instance, I found one that called for 50g of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton yarn, but I don’t like the color options for this yarn, and I’d like to use something a little nicer- a silk blend, maybe? I thought the Plassard Bourette de Soie offered at Elann.com looked good, but I have no idea if this would be suitable.
Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help!
