Father's Day Tie
Designed by Rachel Brockman
Pair a classic looking yarn like Deluxe DK Tweed with a classic men's accessory, and you've got yourself a winner. The tweedy and rustic nature of the yarn gives a manly yet casual look to this stylish neckwear. Slipped stitches along each edge give this tie a polished feel, while a single slipped stockinette spine adds just the right amount of detail. Because this tie is knit, it provides a bit of stretchiness around the neck - perfect for the man in your life who doesn't like to wear ties.
