It's been a recent obsession of ours to learn how to tie the perfect head scarf. We believe this love for the head scarf/turban began for us (and other headwear lovers) with the Prada 2007 collection, in which it was officially proven that the silk turban was so much more than a religious symbol... but the ultimate fashion accessory.

Since Prada's "discovery" / innovation of this wondrous accessory, people have been testing out new ways to tie and wrap a head scarf.

Unfortunately, even after seeing "the turban" succeed time and time again to look great on others, we still find ourselves wondering...
how do they do it?It is so much harder than it looks to pull this off as an effortless cool.
I started knitting this vintage 1940s turban pattern January 7th with Sublime cashmerino wool... my absolute favourite brand. I ran out of wool and was forced to put the project into hibernation until I finally got around to buying more. As of today... (finally!) it is complete.
...hello Grace Kelly!
