Turban Wrap and Lola Headband
Lola Ehrlich designed these retro turbans for Vogue Knitting. The Turban wrap is constructed from a long strip that’s knotted and sewn to a shaped cap piece–in a ribbed pattern. To make the easy-stitch braided headband begin with a ribbed band in a single strip, split the strip into three pieces and braid them, then knit the pieces together again. A simple knot makes for an easy fit.
