Try This: Necktie Basket

Turn silk neckties into a soft basket perfect for storing small items.

4. As you move outward, begin angling the rows of necktie slightly upward to shape the basket. The looped cords will get farther away from each other as you work outward, so at the halfway mark, work two cord loops into the space where one usually goes, to double the number of loops. To add new neckties, fold the tie’s fat part into the skinny end of the next tie and secure with a few stitches.
