This pattern is for a quick-to-work bandana. It is worked from the crown, in one piece with no seaming and has a shaped neck-flap to protect sensitive skin from the sun. Sizes baby to adult included. The recommended yarn is double knit (8-ply) cotton mixes but other yarns may be used to give different textures (less than 300m for largest size). Colour changes are optional. You will also need a 3.50mm hook (or appropriate size for yarn chosen) and a needle for neatening ends. This pattern is written in UK terms with US equivalents where applicable.
