The Cattleya Tie Top is a sophisticated tee with a surprise in the back. The kicky ties are an extension of the longer front and add an element of fun to a classic shell. This top is worked back and forth in separate pieces and seamed, so it’s ideal for tucking into your tote for some leisurely patio knitting. 

This top is worked back and forth in pieces from the bottom up and seamed. The front is longer than the back and has a long strap to tie at the back.  A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.
