Inspired by the perfect vintage chiffon hair scarf! This is my take on one of my favorite hair accessories, made warm and fluffy for the colder weather, with a really fun and unique construction. The Prima Donna Turban - titled after the Dion song, because it’s just the most glam way to keep your head warm!

CONSTRUCTION

The “Prima Donna” Turban & Headband are worked seamlessly! The pattern utilizes magic loop but can easily be converted to DPNs.
