This nature-inspired interpretation of the necktie can be worn wrapped once or twice around the neck, tied in as many styles as you can imagine - one or two at a time. To make the leaves at each end of the tie appear the same when it's draped around the neck, the first leaf is worked, then stitches are picked up along the cast-on edge, the long section is worked in a simple lace pattern for the desired length, then the second leaf is worked.
Finished Size: About 3" (7.5 cm) wide (excluding leaves) and 46 1/2" (118 cm) long (including leaves).
