Many are suprised to hear that Tucson, Arizona has a vibrant cattle industry! Growing up I loved the bandanas that cowgirls and cowboys wore around their necks when herding cattle or practicing for the rodeo. This unique cowl fatures a stranded knitting paisley motife and fringe inspired by the classic bandana.
