The Duke

“Never apologize, Mister. It’s a sign of weakness.” – John Wayne in She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949)

Reminiscent of the Duke’s bandannas he wore in so many of his cowboy movies (see the one he wore in The Searchers, in particular), this cowl is simple and functional with just enough detail to add some interest. The Duke may be blocked to prevent curling, or may be unapologetically allowed to do as it will without blocking while keeping you warm.

A quick, easy knit for that one skein of worsted weight yarn you just don’t know what to do with.
