Because I am the greatest sister who ever lived I knitted this for my brother. My dad has an old Yves St. Laurent knitted tie in red but I think mine's way better. I could kick Yves' ass with knitting needles. I seed-stitched it (k1,p1 repeat ) and started out kind of mucking around and then followed this pattern. The brother also wears that knitted cap ALL the time, we don't know why. He's a hipster.
