Featuring Bernat Pop!
This was the second project I've ever made using Bernat Pop!, and I really like it! It's 100% acrylic and self-striping, which means the yarn does all the color changes for you. It comes in 29 different colorways, and is machine washable and dryable for easy cleaning and care. You can purchase it on Yarnspirations.com, or at your local JOANN or Michaels!
Easy to Crochet - and Wear!
The pattern for the Easy One Skein Bandana Cowl is incredibly easy. A simple rectangle is folded and seamed, and done! The buttons are completely decorative and therefore optional - and a great way to add your own personal touch.
