So called for the way I see the yarn (which is Vanna's Colors 'Driftwood')

Here's a link to the pattern:  http://www.purlbee.com/bandana-cowl

Really like this pattern, but knit in a bulky yarn makes it pretty big.  Still the still and the color make it perfect for a guy!

I started another version of this with doubled strands of Patons silk/bamboo, but I need to get another skein.  (The yarn estimates, by all accounts, are pretty far off.) I think the silky yarn will drape more, and the size will be less of an issue.  I've got some more of the Vanna's Colors that I'd like to use with this pattern for my sister.  Next time I will cast on 10 fewer stitches, and start the decrease rows as soon as I finish the short rows.  And I'll only do one repeat of the garter stitch at the top.

'But other than that, how did you enjoy the pattern, Mrs. Lincoln?'

(seriously, all props to the designer, it's a really nice pattern and gives you an easy intro to short rows.)
