Sagefrost Gypsy Turban

This variation of the Gypsy Turban in Crochet uses acrylic worsted weight yarn and a fuzzy, white boucle yarn called "Snow White," a vintage yarn that I got from a lady in Canada. Any fuzzy or shiny or bouclé yarn in a contrasting color would work fine too. Here's how I made this turban:

1. Make the starting chain in the "frost" or white yarn.

2. Continue for 2 rounds with the main color, sage in this case, carrying the white yarn up the wrong side of the work.

3. Add a slip-stitch round of white.

4. Switch back to the main color and work a few more rounds.

5. Repeat steps 3-4 until you have finished the turban rounds.

6. End with a slip-stitch round of white.
