“Chains! My baby’s got me locked up in chains, and they ain’t the kind that you can see. Woah oh these chains of love got a hold on me.”

The “Chains of Love” Turban is inspired by the sweet doo wop version of this song sung by The Cookies. This turban is perfect for times you want to stay cozy and warm; the chain link cables create a fabric that is stretchy, forgiving, and toasty! Wear it to cover pincurls or just a low key hair day. The construction is unique to keep knitting interesting, but the cable pattern is easy to memorize!

The Chains of Love Turban is worked completely seamlessly!
