Corinna Cowl and Mitts
I love this set because of the way the slipped stitches create easy vertical lines over the horizontal stripes. And the stripes can created with just two yarns, a solid and a self striping yarn. It also would make a great stash buster. Also, I want to point out is that the cowl shaped to be wider at the bottom than the top so it will sit nicely on the shoulders. Worsted weight yarn. Designed by Brenda Castiel.
