Another portable project. This is based on a pattern published in July 1940, in Home Chat magazine, that I got from Lucy @ 1940’s Style For You. I used fingering weight acrylic yarn and US 4 – 3.5 mm needles.
I think the stitch is very pretty on the right side but I confess this was a little boring to knit… it’s just a long strip that you tie to your head.
I tried to wrap the turban in several ways but the front twist is the only one that I like. I found that the bow thingie in the pattern picture is impossible to achieve, at least in the yarn I used. Maybe with thinner yarn?
Either way I’m very happy with it. I’ll probably make it again & again in other colors. 🙂
