Today, we are going to knit a Men’s Seed Stitch Necktie! Ties are one of the most popular gifts for men and Dads. But this year, don’t bore him with a store-bought tie. For under ten dollars, give a classic knit tie made with love. This knitting project is an easy level project using the Seed Stitch texture, perfect for everyone who has completed my Absolute Beginner Knitting Series.

Seed Stitch Necktie
Cast On 12 Stitches with the Long-Tail Method. This is a medium-sized to skinny sized tie. So, it’s two and a half inches wide. And we are going to cast on twelve stitches.
Odd Rows: * K1, P1 *
Even Rows: * P1, K1 *
Knit in the Seed Stitch for 21 Inches in length
Decrease to 10 Stitches
K2Tog, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K2Tog
Knit for 8 Rows in the Seed Stitch
Decrease to 8 Stitches
K2Tog, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K2Tog
Knit in the Seed Stitch until the entire tie measures between 57 – 59 inches in length.
Let’s add a fun KEEPER LOOP to the back of the tie.
This helps keep the TAIL of the tie in place. I had fun just grabbing some sparkly scrap yarn and I knit four quick rows. Just make sure that when you sew your KEEPER LOOP to the back of your tie, to sew into the seed to prevent seeing it from the front.
