Just a quick post today about a quick make. I was inspired by Jo who blogs at Objects of my Affection's challenge to join in the Turban Tuesday fun!
I made one of these turbans from the free pattern by Elisa McLaughlin a few years ago, in a lovely royal blue to match my thick winter coat see it here. Both my coat and headband have now seen better days so I thought it was about time that I updated at least one of them, I went for the cheapest option and knitted myself up another turban, it was very easy and very quick, it took about three hours!
This time I chose some DK mustard wool which as before I doubled up (knitted with 2 strands) to make it nice and thick and warm on the ears. I also added 5 stitches to the cast on this time, to make it a little wider and so that it stays in place a little better than my last one did.
|I do love a Pixlr filter for making my skin look uncharacteristically blemish free!|
It is certainly much more striking version than the dark blue one but I love it just as much, OK maybe a little more!
Happy Turban Tuesday!
