Another brown project (see this poncho).

My husband wanted me to knit him a tie to go with the great vintage corduroy jacket he had just found. It happened that Interweave Knits had just published a bunch of tie patterns. We picked the Slip Stitch Tie from the free PDF.

He picked two colurs from the new Celestial Yarns hand-dyed sock yarns, which knitted up at a slightly larger gauge, but made little difference in the tie's width since there were so few stitches involved.

The pattern was very nice. You have to be open to picking up stitches, though, because the last thing you do is pick up stitches along both edges and knit the contrasting border. It gives the tie a really nice finish and prevents it from curling.

Here's the result:

And here's a picture of the tie in action: http://www.zunior.com/freedownload/zuniorlive_dec22_2004_4.jpg

That's rather lovely.  What goes better with a corduroy jacket than a knitted tie, I ask you!

Wow, the tie looks great with the jacket.
Did you use the same yarn as the poncho?

That's awesome, and it goes perfectly with the jacket-- about how long did it take you? I want to make one for my husband- his birthday is on the 24th.
