Teddy gets a tie (Doll tie knit pattern)

I decided that the teddy bear I knitted in the spring seemed like he was missing something. So I've knitted him a tie.

I played around with the yarn and my knitting needles and came up with my own pattern. I used size US 10 (6 mm).

Tie pattern:
Cast on 1 & knit
Row 2: knit 1, make 1
Row 3: knit 1, make 1, knit 1
Row 4: knit 1, make 1, knit 2, make 1
Row 5: knit 1, make 1, knit 4, make 1
Row 6: knit 1, make 1, knit 6, make 1
Row 7: continue knitting until desired length.

I used a color coordinating button to attach the tie together. If knit long enough it could be tied in a Windsor knot, etc. Teddy is now complete and looking very professional in his new tie!

Happy Crafting!
