Chrisner Bow Tie

I created the Chrisner Bow Tie for Father’s Day while I was binge watching Food Truck Races. My dad loved it and still wears it to this day!

The Garter Bow Tie was created for Father’s day. A few years ago, I was trying to figure out what to get my dad for Father’s day and I was stumped. Then I remembered that I was a maker (sometimes I forget.) I started thinking how cool it would be to hand make something for a someone I really care about on a special day. So I went and did my research; measurements, materials, etc and got The Chrisner Bowtie. (All the while I was binge watching Food Truck Races.) My dad loved it and still wears it to this day! Hope you enjoy this free knitting pattern and please let me know if you have any questions, thank you.
