Actually its not just the curl direction but the color pattern. In the first panel Dilbert's tie has a black "tip" but in the second and third panels, it has a red tip. Changing colors. Wish I had a tie like that.

Well. Curl direction simply depends on viewing angle. If Dilbert rotates right, his tie rotates, too. And depending on the angle we're viewing it, it seems to change its direction. Actually the tie is bending straight forward when looked at from Dilberts perspective.
