This mosaic bandana cowl is perfect for anyone wanting to get in touch with their cowgirl, bandit, bank robber, you name it side. This pattern comes with two options (you will get both!): a lightweight two-color fingering weight version, or a slightly warmer three-color DK weight version.

Mosaic or slip stitch knitting makes colorwork a breeze, only one color is used at a time. This lightweight cowl will keep your neck warm throughout the winter or the frosty air conditioning in the middle of summer! Happy knitting!
