It's Todd's No Purl Hat except I cast it on in the round so I did purl for the brim :)
Yarn is Lyra by Lang Yarns which is a worsted cotton/silk blend. Delicious!

Hello! Is anybody Out There?

My poor neglected blog. I have something for you! A hat. The Purl Knit Turban, to be precise. Made with Paton's Canadiana in...blue, obviously. For a person who is undergoing chemo and needs a head warmer. Instead of wrapping the yarn tail around the front the way the pattern calls for, I knit a 5 stitch stockinette strip that was about 4 inches long and sewed it on. I attached it just above the last purl section and then wrapped to the inside to the same spot.
