A soft and comfy cowl worked Cotton and Linen blend yarn in skinny slipped stitch stripes of blues and grey. Blue cornflowers with bright yellow centers are embroidered over the stripes in a simple satin stitch and french knot design. There is no shaping involved, which makes this a lovely project for the advanced beginner level knitter or a quick TV knit or travel knitting project for the more experienced knitter.
