I wanted to make and send a gift to a dear friend of mine in Australia. He told me that it does get cold enough in Sydney to warrant scarves so I decided to make up a small cowl for him. Unisex and not too bulky. Fit was good. If it were met, I’d have made it tighter but he couldn’t try it one as I made it.
Nice, simple pattern that I would make again.
Bandana Cowl, started November 6, 2016, finished November 11, 2016.
Pattern: Bandana Cowl
Made for: Mark and sent to Australia.
Yarn: Lion Brand Fisherman’s Wool – 100% wool
Modifications & Notes: This pattern was made for thicker yarn. Next time, I would add one row between the first few decrease rounds for the point to be less pointy.

Cost of Project: This yarn was part of 2 skeins I bought to make other things and have gotten a couple of small projects from it. I’d say this was $2 in terms of percent in yard or even less.
Would I knit it again? Yes. I was even considering making one for myself.
