It is now summer and its hot. Sometimes I just do not want to do my hair and I want to tuck it away in a hat. Problem is most of my hats are made of wool and they just will not work so I decided to make a turban hat with knit fabric.I looked for a tutorial on-line and could not find one with everything I wanted so I took a bit of everything I liked to come up with this tutorial.
1/4 yard knit fabric
Cut two rectangles one that mneasure 20″ by 13″ and another one that is 4″ by 5″
Fold the big piece so that it measures 10″ by 13″ and sew a curve on the open side and trim the excess fabric. Leave a 1″ opening at the top.
Hem the bottom of the hat using a desired method
Tuck about an inch of the back seam and pin in place three times.
Stitch in the ditch to secure the tucks.
Pull the tab through the opening making sure the seem is on the inside. Stitch the ends together.
