Eleventh Bow Tie

Bowties are cool, right?

Knit your own “thistle” shaped bow tie in linen stitch to emulate your favorite Doctor, or just add some classic flair to your style.

24 sts = 2.75” wide in linen stitch

Linen stitch:

Row 1: Knit 1, slip 1 with yarn in front; repeat

Row 2: Purl 1, slip 1 with yarn in back; repeat

  • CO 24 sts
  • Work linen stitch for 6 rows, turning work at the end of each row. Continue working linen stitch throughout the tie.
