The tree branches will be made with K1F's (hold 1 stitch forward on cn, K1, K stitch from cn) and K1B's (hold 1 stitch back on cn, K1, K stitch from cn). The trunk consists of 3 stitches that are knit in stocking stich. All other stitches are knit in reverse stocking stitch. (cn = cable needle)
I hope to post a picture soon of the newly designed, white wool tie.
