We knit: Vintage Turban

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!

This really is very pretty. You inspired me to also make a more voluminous version. I am working with a worsted weight yarn at a gauge of about 5 stitches to the inch. Were you able to get pattern gauge of 7 stitches to the inch? Did you modify the pattern?

SCW said...

I'm not sure what my gauge was in the end, but I didn't modify anything if that helps! Good luck with your project, I'm happy you liked mine!
