Bestie Bandana is the perfect accessory for cooler months — but you won’t want to pack it away for spring or summer, either. Worn around the neck and with unique braided tassels adorning the front, this laid-back bandana will be your go-to fave. This re-branded version is knit flat with a chunky-weight yarn held together with a strand of sequins to make it extra amazebling. It then seamed together after blocking to create the signature “bandana” shape. So easy to make and simple to wear, you’ll want to make one for yourself and another for your bestie!
