I'm knitting a skinny tie, and I want to knit it in ravenclaw striped colors.  I've looked at different pictures of ravenclaw uniforms though, and in all of them the stripes are at a diagonal.  Would anyone know how to create this effect in a knit tie?  I can make it in a scarf, but I can't quite figure it out for a tie because of the shaping.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

it shouldn't be too hard if you have the pattern for the tie. All you would have to do to make the colors diagonal is to move the color over one stitch every right side row. for example, Row 1 would be k2 in A, k2 in B, k2 in A, etc. then on row 3 it would be K1 in A, k2 in B, K2 in A .... and so on. Does that make sense? If you look at it really close you would see where the colors jog over, but you wouldn't from any distance away, it would look smooth.

Hope this helps!

You could also try a bias knit tie as well.  Knit Picks has a free pattern here.
