Crochet Pattern: Turban Headband

By Amy Yarbrough – 6 Comments
The turban style headband brings back memories of the old days when women adopted the style as a part of fashion. Though wearing the turban for fashion has existed for centuries, in the 20’s it was reintroduced by a fashion designer with an Eastern flair. Many of us will recall pictures of a later era with women wearing them while working in factories during World War II. This headband is simple and easy to make, perfect for that Lana Turner-inspired outfit. As an added benefit, it will keep a bit of winter chill from your ears. Turban Headband

    Hello, Amy! Thank you so much for sharing this pattern! I have made four of these headbands so far, with 100% cotton yarn, and the recipients of two of them love them almost as much as I do! I have a question for you: would you be all right with me selling headbands that I make from using this pattern? All credit would go to you, of course, with a link-back. Thank you! 🙂
