Roseanne Bandana Anna

I would love to claim this as one of my newest knitting projects, but, alas, I cannot. It is the Bandana Cowl from Purl Soho, and you can find the pattern here. I had a great ball of yarn, multi-colored, and made one! It is being blocked as we speak. Stay on the edge of your chair for the big reveal. The pattern uses short rows, and in the Purl Soho tutorial they reference another tutorial on how to do short rows. Of course, the first time I did them, I misunderstood exactly how to do it and discovered waaayyy into the knitting that something was not right. Good thing about yarn, all I wasted was a few hours. I ripped out the goofy knitting, re-read the instructions, and was happy to see it looked good this time. I should find some multi denim blue yarn and make one of these...a good nod to the traditional bandana. As much as I love color, however, the pictured neutral yarn is calling to me. It looks like the kind of accessory that you could throw on when you are having a bad hair day and get tons of compliments on how stylish you look. Understated chic. Classy. Okay, maybe I can't pull it off, but I still like the color. Jerilynn

  1. Rec'd one of these made by youngest and love it...easier to put on and take off than winding scarves--definitely a must on the well dressed list!
