Crochet Neck Tie Pattern




Materials:
·         Worsted weight yarn, I used Caron Simply Soft
·         Size G hook
·         Needle for weaving in ends



NeckTie:
Begin with a magic circle, ch1
 1: 2hdc in circle, ch1, turn. Pull the circle closed. (2 sts)
 2: 2hdc in each stitch, ch1, turn. (4 sts)
 3: 2hdc in first stitch, 1 hdc in next 2 stitches, 2hdc in last st, ch1, turn. Increase made on first and last stitch. (6 sts)
 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.
76: 1hdc in first 3 sts, hdc decrease together, 1 hdc in last 3 sts, ch1, turn. (7 sts)
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.

  9. Instead of 10 stitches across each row I did 14. Would i follow the same pattern for decreasing or do i need to adjust this too? If adjustment is needed can you help me figure it out?

    ReplyDelete
  10. You could keep decreasing until you reach 6 stitches or you could keep it a little wider (maybe 8 stitches) in proportion to the main body of the tie. It's really up to you and how you want it to look. I don't think much adjusting is needed. Please let me know if you have any more questions.

  12. I’m amazed at how easy this tie was to make up. I’m a relatively new crocheted and have been venturing out for Christmas this year. Now I’m started on my second tie using your pattern, but how would I add stripes in a different color? Also, for the back tag holder, I’m using some fabric tags for my handmade items which I will use instead of crocheting that piece. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
