 4: 2hdc in first stitch, 1 hdc in next 4 stitches, 2hdc in last st, ch1, turn.  (8 sts)
 5: 2hdc in first st, 1 hdc in next 6 sts, 2 hdc in last st, ch1, turn. (10 sts)
 6: 1 hdc in each st across, ch1, turn. (10 sts)
 7: Repeat row 6 until piece measures about 18.5 inches long from point.
………. Estimated row numbers below (you may be on a different row number)……….
58: 1hdc in first 4 sts, hdc decrease together for next two sts, 1hdc in last 4 sts, ch1, turn.  (9 sts)
59-66: 1hdc in each stitch across, ch1, turn.  (9 sts) Maintain st count over 8 rows.
67: 1hdc in first 4 sts, hdc decrease together, 1hdc in last 3 sts, ch1, turn.  (8 sts)
68-75: 1hdc in each stitch across, ch1, turn.  (8 sts) Maintain st count over 8 rows.

77-84: 1hdc in each stitch across, ch1 turn. (7 sts) Maintain st count over 8 rows.
85: 1hdc in first 3 sts, hdc decrease together, 1hdc in last 2 sts, ch1, turn. (6 sts)
86-170: 1hdc in ea st across, ch1 turn. (6 sts) You can continue to desired length. Mine is about 61 inches long.
Finish off and weave in ends.



Tag Area:
  I wasn’t sure what to call this part. It’s usually where a tag is and it holds the smaller end behind the wide part.
I put mine about 11 inches from the point around row 34.
Join the yarn in one of the stitches near the edge, but not the very edge. Sc in same stitch and one stich next to it, ch1, turn. (2 sts)
Hdc in ea, ch1 turn. (2st)
Repeat last row until you are near the other side but not over the edge of the tie (about 7 rows).
Insert hook into first st on tag, slip stitch into a stitch near the edge of the tie, sl st in next stitch, going through both layers (the tag and edge of the tie).

Finish off and weave in ends.

I don't know if my other comment went through or not, so if it did I am sorry, I'm making this for my dad for Father's Day tomorrow. I will send you pictures when it is done. I can't wait to give it to him, it's something he won't expect
