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 laidback bandana will be your go-to fave. The garment is knit flat with a chunky-weight yarn and 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!
