This pillow is as comfy and cozy as a dollop of honey in hot tea. Celebrate our pollinator friends with some honeycomb texture as well as some cute colorwork bees. The body of the pillow cover is in worsted weight stockinette for easy quick mindless knitting. The detail strips provide a little colorowork and texture fun knit seperately from the body of the cover.
