The mayor's tie is created for the mayor of Faxe municipality Ole Vive, as he participated in Haslev Knitting Festival 2019. He was pleased to receive the tie and has worn it on many occasions.
Measurements: approx. 150 cm long, 8 cm wide.

The mayor's tie is made in Organic cotton from Krea Deluxe.
The tie is crocheted in moss stitches, which creates a solid fabric. It drapes beautifully and keeps the shape.
When you crochet garments, it is very important to keep the suggested tension to avoid that the tie doesn't end up being too short or too long. The kit contents are calculated carefully according to the measurements and tension indicated in the pattern. Deviating from this will also influence the amount of yarn required.
We recommend making a tension sample in moss stitches before you begin. If your tension doesn’t match the indicated tension you should adjust your hook size until you do achieve the correct tension.
The tie in the photos is made in cl no. 27 as base colour, no. 21 as stripe 1 and no. 20 as stripe 2.
TIP: Add one of our beautiful gift boxes to your order, if you want to gift wrap the tie extra pretty. See the gift boxes here.
