ABOUT THE PATTERN Growing up in Minnesota, going to Duluth and visiting Lake Superior was a big deal! It wasalmostlike we were visiting the ocean… except it was an ocean so cold you could hardly dip your toes in. Nonetheless, we loved hiking to nearby Gooseberry Falls to watch the cascades. This bandana cowl is lightweight enough for summer, yet can still snuggle around your shoulders as it gets cold (as it does almost every evening in Duluth).
