The Bookman Bandana is the first pattern from our new e-book, Helvetica Knits v.1, a series of accessories for babies! It will be release individually for sale online and here on Ravelry in late February. The e-book will be published sometime in late spring.


Babies grow teeth and drool. Itʼs just a fact of life! Rather than constantly mopping up the water works with a hanky, this bandana will slowly sop up the mess and support some stash busting by using up any worsted weight scrap cotton you have.

Knit back and forth on one circular, this bandana can be made with just a main colour and a contrasting colour, or with whatever yarn you have at your disposal.

A simple cable trails down the side of the bandana and meets up with the garter stitch edging. Attached behind the neck with a button, the loose neck opening ensures your babe is safe and super hip at the same time!
