Knitted ties are in fashion

vintage knitted ties

There's nothing like knitted neckgear to lend a man an intellectual air. These two hunks are sure to have teamed their home-crafted cravats with cords, cardies and Hush Puppies and accessorised with chunky specs and fountain pens.

Note the wonky Letraset-style lettering...

I found these fashionable ties among the tea cosies, oven gloves, pot holders and coal mitts in the Patons Third Bazaar Book:

It's more of a leaflet than a book really and I couldn't see a year of publication – any guesses?

Does a man in your life need a stripey or tweed-look necktie? The instructions are here – they couldn't be simpler to make.
