So I was shopping at a certain urban clothing store when I saw this turban. The idea was nice, but there was some bunching in odd places and the price was way off (for an acrylic hat) so I decided to make my own. Now this isn’t an exact copy of their design, it has some improvements to the fitting, a rounder shape, and fewer seams (more than the 6% deviation required by law). It does have the same vintage inspired, updates movie star style though.

Give it a go, the fisherman’s rib is super fast to knit and double thick for warmth.

I’d like to share the pattern, but I also really could use some money. So buy the pattern, make the hat, and help me pay for food/yarn. Please.
