Embrace your inner hippie with my Gypsy Turban headband. Inspired by the hippie movement of the 60’s and my own hippie-inspired upbringing, this turban alternative is easy to wear and knit! Beginning as an unassuming strip of garter stitch, this pattern takes a literal turn when you twist all of the live stitches into a large textured cable. This produces a perfect twist that mimics a traditional turban, without having to be a master at tying knots. This pattern features an option for kitchener stitch for a seamless look, but the beginner friendly mattress seam can also be used.
