Winter turban

Finally a hat that is warm as well as feminine! This project is pretty easy as long as you get the hold of the brioche stitch. You make a scarf and shape it into a turban

100 g Abuelita Merino Worsted

Circular needles US 9

4" = about 10 stitches

You can knit the brioche stitch in different ways. We do it this way, as it is easier on the shoulders. If you can´t figure it out, try looking up "brioche stitch" on

Cast on 19 stitches.
Knit one row.
Start the brioche stitch.

Row 1:
Slip 1. * Knit one into the row below, knit one*
Repeat from * to * throughout the row.

Row 2:
Slip one.
* Knit one, knit one into the row below.*
Repeat from * to * until two stitches remain. Knit 2.

Repeat the two rows until your scarf is about 40". Measure it on your head to make sure it fits.

Cast off. Now shape the turban. The easiest way it to shape it on your head in front of a mirror. Place the middle of the scarf on the back of your head, and move the ends towards the forehead. Twist the ends one time, and fold them backwards towards the edge of the turban in the back.

Now assemble the turban as neatly as you can.

Just a thought

why are the instructions for brioche stitch different from the lavender jacket? can i pick which way to knit the brioche stitch? i am making the jacket and it's so much fun, just thought i'd start on something that might be quicker in between:-)

how do you bind off brioche stitch, been looking everywhere and seems so hard:-(

juni 12, 2011 | Unregistered Commenternoemi

Hi, we use a regular bind off, just knit along, and slip the prev stitch over next knitted stitch ;)

Your pattern says: Slip 1. * Knit one into the row below, knit one* Repeat from * to * throughout the row

Do I slip 1 knitwise or purlwise?
What does Knit 1 into the row mean? Does it mean pick up stitch and Make 1 M1 (increase)
Please explain. I've looked for videos online and I still don't understand.

You always slip purlwise if it´s not stated otherwise. It says: Knit one into the row below. It means to knit into the stitch under the stitch you´re meant to knit into (you´ll knit the top stitch (on the needle) and the one under it together sort of:)

I wish you would make this turban in an adult size! I've been trying to look for patterns with no luck... I tried making one last year, but I did not know how to decrease it properly and the top ended up pointy and looked silly. So if you feel like doing that, at least I would be very interested and thankful! :--))

We are keeping the wish on our list, but cannot promise anything:)
