Menswear - The Lee Tie from James Cox Knits
There are plenty of men who knit - and knitters who love men. And there are a lot more who would like to learn. We've collaborated with James Cox Knits to bring you our first Beginner Tutorial Design for Men - the Lee Tie.
James (he goes by 'Jim') has been knitting for years - from the very beginning, he created his own menswear designs. At first, they were for him, and later, he started selling his designs and kits. He recently completed a capsule collection for Skacel, and will be featured in an upcoming issue of Vogue Knitting. You may have seen Jim at a Vogue Knitting Live event. He's a marketing guru who helps launch luxury travel properties, and knitting is his passion. We're delighted to kick off our menswear line with a James Cox Knits design.
About the Lee Tie Kit - James named it after his Dad. It's a Beginner Design that will teach you how to knit. It also makes a relaxing knit, if you're already a knitter.
It's designed with Flying Goat Farm's Mo Paca yarn - a limited batch yarn in the natural color of the mohair goats and alpaca fleece from Flying Goat Farm's animals (and a neighbor's alpaca) from their farm in Maryland. No dyes or chemicals are used in this special yarn that is processed at a small local mill that doesn't use the industrial processes of some larger mills.
You have plenty of time to knit this up for a holiday gift for someone you love. It's also a great gift for someone who wants to learn to knit.
