Easy Ribbed Turban with Bow (Free Crochet Pattern)

by - June 09, 2020


Dear fellow crocheters,

I'm excited to share with you my newest hat design, the Easy Ribbed Turban (with bow)!



The Easy Ribbed Turban is a quick and beginner-friendly hat pattern, which has additional instructions for adding an optional bow applique.  Simple stitches make up this stylish, boho beanie. 


It’s a true fashion statement that is trending with top knot headwraps right now.  It’s also practical, comfortable, and will keep your head warm during the chilly Fall and cold Winter seasons!



This accessory is great for selling at craft fairs as it’s so quick to work up, and also makes a perfect birthday, holiday, and/or Christmas gift! 

 

It works up fast with medium weight yarn held doubled, and you can have lots of fun with mixing and matching two different colors!  I used about a half skein of the beautiful, Lion Brand Heartland in "Yellowstone".  I just love the heathered, tweedy shade, and mustard yellow is one of my obsessions!


The size I made is for adults, though it can easily be adjusted to fit different head sizes!  Check out my Hat Sizing & Measurements Reference Chart post to download the free printable chart.

Custom sizing note: At this point, the crown of my hat measures 7” (18 cm).
If a wider crown is desired, add another round of increases.

R11-R13
Repeat R9 for odd rounds, and R10 for even rounds.


Custom sizing note: At this point, my hat measures 6.5” in height and will measure 7” when the last round (R14) is complete.  If a lengthier hat is desired, such as one to fully cover the ears, add two more rounds (go to R15 instead of R13).  Doing so will result in a finished hat that is approximately 8” in height when R14 is complete.
R14
Work in FLO. Ch 2, dc 36. Sc into the corresponding st between R8-R9 to create a “pinch” in the hat (Tip: fold the hat in half to find the midline if that’s easier). Then, dc in remaining 35 sts. *Join.
