Remember, $1.50 of each pattern sale will be donated to Hand of Hope, the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. The goal is simply to help as many hurting people as possible, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
I love quick one skein projects. Because I live in the south, knitting anything that is too darn warm is out during the summer. So I always like to do accessories when I can. This turban has been in the back of my mind for a long time. I wanted something that was a mix of Maria Montez and Norma Desmond. (In face my model constantly said, I feel like I am giving my best Norma Desmond!…and she was!!!)
Margarete is knit flat from point to point. Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick Twist in Carmine is perfect for this project (as will any Super Bulky yarn) and the stripes and simple color blocking just give it that added edge!

1 skein Carmine

3.5sts = 1” in Pattern Stitch. If your gauge is not that given here, try a smaller or larger needle until you obtain this gauge. If you have to use a different size needle from that called for, it will not in any way alter the garment provided you knit 19 stitches every 4 inches.
