Classic Cotton Tie

Knit ties are all the rage, so why not join in the trend with the Classic Cotton Tie? This is a great project for novice knitters who want to master the seed stitch. The Classic Cotton Tie looks great in the emerald green color shown, but it would look great with any other bold solid. Try stripes or another pattern for a funky twist. With just one ball of yarn, you can create a stylish and unique accessory your man will love donning at every special occasion!
