Knitting a necktie

blue necktie knit in round

I am knitting Buster a necktie. This is the first time I've tried this project. I've taken it out and restarted four times. I searched online for a free pattern and found several. I think I like this pattern the best. I am using four size 2 bamboo double pointed needles and knitting in the round. The yarn is an acrylic Bernat Satin sport weight (thin) in a darkish blue. I like the softness, the satin shine and the durability of it. I hope it will look nice enough for him to wear to work.
