When a friend showed me this gorgeous, knitted, baby turban, I wanted to make it right away. But, when it comes to knitting, simple scarves are about all I can handle. So I took on the challenge to recreate a turban in crochet.
While I like the knitted version better, I still think it turned out pretty cute.
Hook: US H /5.00mm
Pattern: I started the hat using these instructions for a basic beanie. Once I got the circumference I wanted, I used the stitch I learned while making this Boys Crocheted Vest (from the book Little Crochet) to create a rib look for the rest of the hat. To finish, using the photos from the knitted baby turban tutorial as a guide, I made the “turban knot” by looping yarn over the last few rows with a yarn needle.
