Neck-tie remake ▼ possible to tie in one hand easily

Since my grandparents come to our house,
I thought I’ll make something for grandpa.
There are some extra neck-ties my home.
At that time,I found out a neck-tie remake article from a universal fashion book I have.
This is it from the article.

This is really gentle idea that it could tie using loop easily.

To wear
Have a fingers on a ring of edge loop,and drain from side to side slowly,the tie go up upward.

To take off
Have a fingers on tie,let out moving from side to side.

My grandpa was happy to wear it.
I’m happy for him.
Sorry for my clumsy hand stitch.
Grandpa,Live long forever^^

    This is a very good idea, especially for elderly men who can no longer put a tie on in the traditional way. Your Grandpa must be very happy with you.
