This is the first in a series of bandanas designed for the boyfriend in your life that may be a reluctant wearer of traditional accessories.
There will be 4 basic designs, of which this is the first. Each of the designs will have two variations: the first (variation A) will feature the basics of the design, and the second (variation B) will feature the same design, in different colors, and have a pendant embellishment at the tip of the bottom point.
You may well find that the appeal extends far beyond the boyfriend, and you may end up knitting one for yourself – or even a girlfriend!
The amount of yarn needed for color C in either variation is small – around 50-75 yards/45-70 meters.
If you want to add the embellishment to variation B you’ll need a small pendant to attach to the bottom point during bindoff. I chose a small gold-plated brass that’s a reproduction of preColombian jewelry I found on a recent visit to Bogota.
You’ll find the pattern in my Ravelry store at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/boyfriend-bandana-1
