Just thought I'd share my little experiment with you guys-
I suspected that Bandana-Rama would work pretty well as an any-gauge pattern, so I gave it a whirl with a skein of Berroco Peruvia Quick. I ended up not increasing to the number of stitches in the pattern, as that would've been a bit TOO big, but if you don't mind just sort of "feeling" your way and stopping when it "feels" wide enough, you could totally make it with just about any weight of yarn/size of needles.
(These pictures were also taken at Meijer Gardens- Travis explains, "The leaf in the foreground is to give it that action-packed jungle look." Thanks Trav!)
