Modification Monday: Modified SummerTurban
Original Pattern: Knit Yourself a Turban
Knitter Extraordinaire: Allyson (Ravelry Id, Blog)
Mods: Changed the pattern to be more lightweight and summer appropriate, and wrapped the front differently. Details on all her mods can be found on her project page, as well as some super cute photos showing how she styles her turban.
What Makes This Awesome: I'm normally not big on turbans (despite thinking Elizabeth Taylor always looked mighty fine in her many turbans), but this is one I could totally see myself wearing- it's cute, fun, stylish and looks so much easier to wear than I ever would have imagined. I love the way Allyson did the extra wrapping at the front, and the whole effect is tidy and polished. I can't imagine a cuter summer hat than this!
