Here’s a unisex cowl worked in a traditional textile pattern with a contemporary bandana silhouette.

The cowl begins at the top center front and is knitted using the simplest type of colorwork: mosaic technique. This technique requires just one color per row--it’s color knitting the easy way!

Suggested yarn is Anzula’s beautiful Cricket (DK weight; 80% superwash merino/10% cashmere/10% nylon; 250 yards/229m;
4 ounces/114g), 1 hank in each of two highly-contrasting colors.

Finished Measurements:
Circumference: 26”
Length (in center front): 24”
