Fortune-Teller Turban

The idea for the Fortune-Teller Turban pattern came to me when looking at paintings of Medieval 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.

  1. Wonderful! I can't wait to make this.

  2. It's going to take me a long time to catch up on all the interesting tutorials. I've been crocheting since I was 10, but it was either making stuff up ("say, are those giraffe legs all different lengths?") or Uneven Edge Afghans with Single Crochet. It's amazing what you can do when you actually READ and LEARN. Next up: knitting! Thank you for your generous blog.
