In this episode of Becky’s Workshop on CRAFT, learn to construct a basic long necktie with stripes to represent your favorite value of resistor – fashion inspired by the electronics bench! Learn to work with slippery fabrics cut on the bias. In addition to the video, you can find a full step-by-step tutorial for the resistor necktie over on Make: Projects.
