Something Simple

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011


I know what I’m getting everyone for Christmas this year! Bandana Cowls! A nice big gauge, one of these knits up in an evening. Perfect to whip up a store for the holidays.

I came across this pattern on one of my favorite blogs, the Purlbee (so many great tips and free patterns). It takes just a little over 100  yards, looks great and can be done in yarns weights from aran to chunky. It’s a great stash buster but of course, I only used some stash on the first 2, after that it had to be Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Hand Dyes! My mother has kindly requested one in a cream and another friend said oatmeal was the only colour for her, so it seems that neutrals are in for this one.

The pattern is simple with short row shaping so if you were looking for a small project as an opportunity to learn a new technique, the time has arrived.
