30 Minute Christmas Gift DIY (Pt. Two) // Knitted Turban Headband

This project started off as a gift, but I may just have to keep this one for myself. ;) Not only do turbans help keep your ears and head warm during this cold winter season, but they're also handy when you're having a not-so-great hair day. 

supplies: stretch knit fabric, scissors, measuring tape, sewing machine.

Begin by cutting the knit to the correct size. Mine was 46x10 inches.

Once cut, fold in half lengthwise and sew the hems together, creating a long tube. Flip the tube right side out so that the hem is no longer showing. Next, stitch the ends together with the hems facing inward, making a large circle.

To form the knot in the turban, lay it down flat. Twist in the middle, creating the infinity sign.

Twist again.

Then, fold in half, creating a knot.

Lastly, stitch the back layers together to keep the knot from unfolding. This will also prevent the back from scrunching up when being worn.
