New pattern ALERT! I’ve just listed my Dapper Bow Tie knitting pattern on Etsy, Craftsy and Ravelry! I first designed it for Britain Does Vintage Festival in Newcastle (I blogged about the event here and here) – if you love vintage/retro fashion, you must try this pattern!
As with most of my projects, this bow tie is super quick and easy to make. It is knitted using the seed stitch aka my favourite stitch and made of 3 pieces put together.
The best thing about it? You can knit and personalise the pattern time and time again – colour, stitch, motif – the possibilities are endless. Make it for your gal pal, your bf, your little nephew or even your dog :)
I hope you enjoy this pattern and I can’t wait to see your pics – share them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and use #julieandtheknits!

Since I started knitting, I’ve created a few designs for my favourite pets in the world, DOGS! The first pet accessory I ever made was for my dog Spike, it wasn’t perfect but I love it so much!
Last year I also made a personalised bandana collar for Muffin, how cute :)
Here are some more collars with striped and polka dot bow ties, a couple of designs are still available in my Etsy Shop. Weaver, my friend Claudia’s Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen, actually owns one of those!
Recently, Claudia asked me to make Weaver a tuxedo collar for her Big Day. He looked so smart!
I’m thinking of making a series of smart collars in the future so watch this space!
