Ever since I was a child, I was obsessed with the cowboy life from the mid to late 1800’s in what is now Colorado. Thoughts of cattle-drives, horse-rustling, and all the John Wayne-esque gun-slinging raced through my mind. Now as an adult, I am revisiting some of these memories. This kerchief plays with the traditional triangular shape of a kerchief, but takes a modern turn. I used Mountain Meadow Wool Powell for this project, a 100% American Grown, Milled, and Dyed yarn, made in Wyoming.
