Ginger Cowl, crochet mini skein bandana scarf pattern

Blog Post Cover Image (60)

Stash bust like a real pro when you make the Ginger Cowl, a crochet bandana scarf using mini skeins, designed in collaboration with Madelinetosh.

The start of spring always encourages me to make plans with my girls that I haven’t seen since before Christmas. Patios might be back open, but those mimosas aren’t as satisfying if the remnants of winter are biting at your neck. Stay cute and keep the breeze away while sporting the Ginger Cowl to your next casual meetup.

Ginger Cowl Pattern

I love a good maker collaboration. One of the highlights of my day as an independent designer is receiving a box of yarn filled with promise and opportunity. When the DK weight minis used in 2021’s 12 Days of Tosh arrived, I knew something spectacular would come of them.

12 Days of Tosh from Madelinetosh is a unique holiday advent that combines beautifully dyed yarn with exclusive maker goodies and patterns by independent designers. Each day leading up to Christmas, makers open one box to reveal the next color in the collection.

The DK weight mini skeins used in the Ginger Cowl make the simple pattern repeat so satisfying, allowing makers to spend just enough time with one color before transitioning into the next. You’ll finish your first one just in time for your weekend plans.

Now that the holidays are over, only a very limited number of local yarn stores are still carrying the original 12 Days of Tosh box, which contained 13 mini skeins, approximately 44 yards each. If you can’t get your hands on the original advent box, substitute in 570 yards of DK weight yarn for this crochet cowl. Use the original Madelinetosh High Twist or pull a few of those precious skeins you’ve been hoarding curating lately. There are no wrong answers with a pattern like the Ginger Cowl.
