Summer Tie

I’ve been busy working away on a cardigan and beaded top for our wedding in August, but took a bit of time out to knit Beardie a tie to wear on the big day! And it was the perfect opportunity to re-work the Tweed Tie pattern in a cotton yarn.

I’ve been using Rowan Summerlite DK a lot recently and I love it! Using a DK on 2.75mm needles might sound like madness… but Summerlite is quite a fine DK and using it on small needles gives a great firm texture for a tie.

It’s a lovely weight so it drapes nicely and doesn’t flap about in the wind! The tight tension and sideways knitting will also help it to keep it’s shape and not grow over time.

The Summer Tie is available to download as a PDF pattern for £3.50 and also as kits in either Ocean or Rouge.
