Urban Turban



HI everyone! I hope you guys are enjoying this fall weather as much as I am.I notice that on my blog I havent posted any knit patterns really besides the lace scarf. Seeing all over the web and in stores and fashion magazines knitted turbans (there is diffrent takes on it) I was inspired to make my own. This is one of many crochet/Knit versions of a pattern I am doing. This pattern is supper easy and cute! the concept is same for both patterns. You can use worsted weight yarn or a bulky. It's all up to you and the desierd look you are going for. I made 2 in a sitting of NCIS :) quick gifts. The crochet version I used worsted weight and the knit version bulky weight with seed stitch. Let me know if you have any questions and feel free to send me pictures of your finished items from my patterns at: knittykitty2425@hotmail.com

With Studying for my state licence I been running around looking for a job and meeting up with old friends. I have to say Fall is one my favorite seasons. With Thanksgiving coming, I can't wait for those pumpkin pies, apple pies and good old comfort food. I am not big on yard work that comes with this season but I do love the diffrent colors of the leaves. Why not wear your new turban while doing that? keeping your ears warm, with out ruining your hair. So if your not a hat kind of gal. Then try this out trust me you will love it, and you can wear this chic head band 3 ways!



Urban Turban Knit version
Supplies: *sewing needle
*size 17# knitting needle
* 1 skien of Lion brand wool-ease Thick and Quick or any thick/ bulky yarn (uses less then a skein)
Note: You can use any weight yarn just change needle size and cast on more stitches. Uses less then one skien and fits teen/adult head.

Co. 8 sts
Working seed stitch:
R1- K1, P1, across
R2- P1,K1, across
repeat for pattern. I knitted my head band until measured 18 1/2" inches. Key to this is you want to make headband fit around head but not be to loose or too tight. Then fasten off and twist piece and sew ends together. remember to pull tight to get the gatherd effect. Enjoy!

  14. @ Kourtney...R2 means Row 2. You can also google crochet terms for other terms you might need.

  16. What is the ease? Head measurement - headband measurement? Thanks. I'm knitting one for a young woman with a 22-3/4" head circumference. I'd guess there was 1" of negative ease, and some would depend on stretchiness of the yarn...
    Thanks.

  17. I seem to be a bit confused. Is the original ch13 supposed to fit around your head or does it somehow get longer? I don't see how it gets longer if you keep 10sts across the entire time. I've tried to ch3 and turn and dc every stitch (which makes it longer), but the result is some sort of pyramid look, which I know isn't right. Can someone explain what I'm doing wrong?

    1. Kat, after you ch 13 I think you're supposed to dc in the 4th chain from the hook (the pattern says 3rd, but then you'd have 11 stitches instead of 10), which is where the 10 comes from. After that the band gets longer. It's the length that goes around your head, not the width. The band itself is 10 stitches wide.

      On the second row, you chain 3 and that counts as the first dc, so you'd then do a regular dc in the 2nd stitch, not the first.

      HTH,
      Samantha
