Sharing My Bandana Pattern

I thought I would share the pattern I am using for the Bandana's I have created to donate to the Relay for Life Charity Event in Kingman, AZ on June 5 & 6, that I am participating in through the CreateCrochet Team.

I would love to see your creations w/ this pattern! Do you have a better pattern or a different pattern for bandana's? I would love to try it out! Please share =) If you need any help I will try my best, just send me an email at or comment here.

Happy Crocheting! =)
