Are you looking for a simple, meditative project to showcase a fabulous set of minis? Then look no further than the linen stitch! This cowl is worked in a spiral with organic color changes, making it a relaxing piece to work on and a great way to use minis, variegated yarns, or even for stashbusting those leftover bits and bobs from last year’s projects!

This pattern is available for FREE on my website! The small fee for the pdf file you can download here, which includes additional photos for the initial joining and finishing as a bonus feature, helps me continue to be able to do what I love and share it with you!
