Step 1: Making the Bindle Stave
Step 2: Tying the Kerchief
I made this particular kerchief myself out of cotton cloth, it measures about 1 square yard and will also make an excellent keffiyeh for when the dustbowl envelops your shantytown.
Congratulations! You have a bindle. You can now enjoy the majesty of the countryside from the comfort and safety of a moving boxcar, make stew in rusty tin cans, and die of consumption. For best results, grow a beard and keep it just long enough to be really gross, wear oversized threadbare suits and use a piece of rope to keep your trousers from falling down.
