About the pattern

Complex embroidery motifs from my Romanian heritage inspired this lacy triangle bandana knitting pattern, with crenellations and diamonds.

The bandana is knit bottom up and includes a non-curling garter edge.

The pattern includes full instructions and charts (the same chart on A4 and A3 sized pages for ease of printing), plus an easy read version that can be used on mobile.

Size and measurements

When meeting gauge and working all rows in the pattern, the triangle measures 60 cm across the top and 28 cm in depth, due to the slight elasticity of the lace pattern.


Yarn: 50 g or 125-160 meters of size 2 cotton yarn at about 250-340 meters per 100 grams – for example 8/4 cotton yarn;

Needles and hook: 3 mm straight or cabled needles, 2.5 mm regular crochet hook;

Stitch markers: 2 markers;

Tapestry needle and scissors;

Blocking mat and pins.

Optional: one large bead (10-12 mm).


27 stitches and 38 rows should measure 10 by 10 cm (4″ by 4″).

The easy read version respects the following requirements:
