The hatdana is a versatile, practical and beautiful accessory:

  1. It looks and functions like a bandana, but you slip it on like a hat.

  2. Wear it around your neck like a cowl.

  3. Wear it as a traditional head wrap with the bandana pointing toward the crown of your head.

This accessory inspires me to let my hair down, literally and figuratively, to be my most authentic self. It reminds me to surround myself with people who welcome and accept the real me. I hope it will do the same for you.

The Hatdana is knit from pointed tip to ribbed hem. The bandana portion is worked flat using yarn over increases. The stitches are then joined in the round for ribbing. It features decorative details such as the tiny tassels on the pointed tip. There is an elegant, but minimal, cable down the length of the crown, a continuous slip stitch edge around the bandana opening, and a sewn stretchy bind off to frame your face! Every tiny detail is intentional, so that this accessory is both functional and beautiful!
