Surprise your hubby, son, father, or any friend with a custom made tie in their favorite color. This pattern is for a traditional tie that measures 55 1/2-inch long by 3-inch wide (141 cm x 8 cm) at it’s widest point and it is a fast and easy sew.
The Tie Pattern along with an illustrated tutorial were published in the Purl Soho Website. This pattern is available as a pdf download that you can print in a regular printer. The pattern must be assembled. There 8 pages to print and 6 pattern pieces (Front, Back, Middle, Interfacing, Back Lining, and Front Lining)

1 1/2-yards Sew-In Mid/Heavyweight Interfacing
1 yard light weight fusible interfacing
100% cotton thread to match your fabric
If you want to make matching ties for Father & Son, I found this pattern tutorial:
The style of your tie depends on the fabric you choose and it varies depending on taste and personality. Below are some examples to inspire you to sew a tie:
If your guy is traditional, a nice silk fabric will be perfect for his tie. You can also sew a matching handkerchief.
If your guy is like my son, you might want to use solids! They look nice in all kind of fabrics.
You can use a contrasting color for the back for a nice and professional finishing.
For a modern look, linen and floral fabrics are great options. These examples also show contrasting fabrics for front and back.
You can also be creative in the tie knots. There are many different styles that will make your man looks modern and polish.
And thinking outside the box, why not use it as a necklace for yourself!
