Gypsy Turban



The idea for the Gypsy Turban pattern came to me when looking at paintings of Medieval gypsy fortune tellers. It's easy to knit and easy to wear--no sewing, grafting, or blocking. You can wear it to cover the hairline, pull it down over your ears, or push the whole turban back on your head. It can also be worn as a hood. Pattern includes detailed instructions and photos for how to put it on. With a twist and a flip, this turban practically arranges itself. Make one in cotton for summer and another in wool for winter warmth.
