A FUN TOWEL TURBAN CAP
( #Blogaday 02/365 )
All of us have those special days when we wake up and our hair just doesn’t.. It decides that it just needs more sleep – and no matter *what* you do, it just does not behave – so this is a fun cap for those days. I think this cap is also a great one when you have oiled (or colored? ) your hair and need a little warmth tucked in ;)
The original pattern for this cap is a free one. I have a few ideas thrown in for good measure – and of course as usual, this is made using our Indian locally available yarns, so there’s information for those who wish to use this pattern but with our local yarn(s).
Materials used : Today I’ve used one skein of our lovely Indian Oswal Cashmilon 4-ply yarns with a 4 mm crochet hook
Stitches used :
fsc : Foundation Single Crochet : To refresh your skill on the fsc, please view this superb video by Tamara Kelly at the link http://www.mooglyblog.com/foundation-single-crochet-fsc/
Hdc : Half Double Crochet : yo, insert hk into st ; yo (3 lps on hk), yo, draw through all 3 lps. One hdc made.
Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row. Do take a look at this self-explanatory super video http://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/
In case you are unhappy with this start, or do not like it, do continue with the usual ch-2 or ch-3 start. However, all instructions will be given assuming that you are using the chainless dc start.
Here is a sizing chart for general head sizing :

For this project, I’ve been inspired by the fun hair towel turban from http://hearthookhome.com/hair-towel-with-a-twist/ and just look at this photograph.. how can one resist such a project?
So as usual, all I’m adding to this fun pattern are the few (really few) tweaks that I’ve made. As usual, I started with my foundation chains, so…
Start : with 9 fsc. Turn.
and then there's this way ..
So I think there are several ways to wear this, and I have taken a video of two ways

I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'.
We (as a family) are also staunch protectors of stray animals and will continue to do our bit to make this a safe world for them.
We strongly believe in R-R-R and several of my projects will show this.
