Crochet and go!
I love the look of shawls worn “backward,” or with the point in front. And I adore my collection of shawl pins! But sometimes you need something a little less fussy, a little easier to throw on and go.
And that’s what inspired the Harvest Bandana Shawl! With the great look of a shawl worn “bandana style” and the ease of a cowl, you can pop this on and go – no matter where the day takes you, or how windy it gets!
Red Heart Colorscape was the perfect choice for this pattern! It is 100% acrylic so it’s as easy to care for as it is it wear. And has 12 gorgeous city-themed colorways so you can get a different look every time, for every adventure.

The main stitch pattern for the Harvest Bandana Cowl is commonly known as the corner to corner, or C2C stitch. Worked in the “standard” way for the odd-numbered rows, the even-numbered rows replace the center dc with a ch 1 (and skip 1 when applicable), for a lacier look that adds interest to this design.
Row 1: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in last 2 chs; turn. (1 solid block)
Row 2: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook, ch 1, skip next ch, dc in last ch, (slip st, ch 3, dc, ch 1, dc) in ch-3 sp of previous row; turn. (2 lace blocks)
Row 3: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in next 2 sts, [(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) in next ch-3 sp of previous row] twice; turn. (3 solid blocks)
Row 4: Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook, ch 1, skip next ch, dc in last ch, [(slip st, ch 3, dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch-3 sp of previous row] 3 times; turn. (4 lace blocks)
Row 5 – 18: Repeat last 2 rows, increasing 1 block on each row until there are 18 blocks across, do NOT turn. (If you want a bigger cowl, continue to desired width, ending on an even-numbered row.)
Rnd 19: Join with sl st to first ch-3 sp of Row 18, ch 2, (dc, hdc, sc) in same ch-3 sp, hdc in next ch-1 sp, *(dc, hdc, sc) in next ch-3 sp, hdc in next ch-1 sp; rep from * around, join to first dc of rnd. (72 sts)
Rnd 20: Ch 1, sc in each st around; join and break yarn. (72 sts)
Bottom Edging Rnd 1: Join with sc to back of cowl at join, sc evenly around bottom edge of cowl, working (sc, ch 2, sc) at the point; join.
Bottom Edging Rnd 2: Ch 1, tw-sc in each st around, working (tw-sc, ch 2, tw-sc) in the point ch-2 sp; join and break yarn.
And that’s the Harvest Bandana Cowl! I hope you like this fun and fast pattern – with just one ball of yarn! This makes it a great go-to gift pattern – and the variety of Red Heart Colorscape colors mean you can customize it every time.
