Abbreviations (US Terms):

ch- chain
dc- double crochet
rnd- round
sl st- Slip Stich

To Adjust Size:

Measure the circumference of your head. Start in the middle of your forehead, wrapping the measuring tape around your head about 1/8 inch above your ears to determine the measurement of your head. When you create your project you will want it to be an inch or two smaller, depending on the yarn stretch.

The hat will be approx. 2 inches smaller than your head size in order for the hat to fit snuggly on your head.

Creating Turban Knot

Determine where you want the turban knot to be placed on the hat. Scrunch hat by pinching the brim and approx. 2 inches of the hat up.

Using the long tail and a sewing needle, insert the yarn at the bottom of the pinch and pull through, to allow the hat to gather or chinch together. Begin wrapping the yarn around the designated turban knot area.

Wrap yarn until the desired size knot is achieved approx. 8 to 10 times.

Fasten the yarn off using a, cut any excess yarn, weave in ends.
