Last week, while I was in Mexico on a family vacation, I knit Purl Soho's Bandana Cowl. I have wanted to knit this for years. I just never got around to it.
This is an excellent, fast and easy pattern. The only slight challenge are short rows. Honestly, once you get the hang of them, they are easy. Purl Soho also has a great tutorial, if you're new to short rows.
I used Cascade Eco Cloud Yarn in Dove Grey. I have used this yarn before, and I love it. It is great yarn and is totally underrated. It is soft. It's affordable, and this project only used on skein. How great is that?
While I was knitting it and even after I finished it, I thought it was so small. However, once I tried it on I was surprised how great it fit. I will make this again. It'd be a great gift. If you're looking for a quick and easy project that isn't boring, this cowl is perfect.
