Easy Ribbed Boho Crochet Turban Pattern

Ch 121.

Row 1: Hdc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across. [120 hdc]

Row 2: Ch 1, turn, working through third loops, hdc in each st across. [120 hdc]

Fasten off and weave in ends.

How to assemble your crochet turban:

  1. Find midpoint of your rows and mark with a stitch marker or two.
  2. Bring sides forward and twist in front. Cross once then twist around.
  3. Line up the short edges to meet the center point in the back. Secure with stitch markers.
  4. Using a long piece of scrap yarn, seam the short ends to the center of the strip. The short ends will meet at the center stitches marked.
  5. Seam the pieces to each other  where they join to form the body of the hat.
  6. If desired, add a broach or other embellishment in the center of the knot.

Here’s a graphic that shows how I assembled this turban. Video tutorial coming shortly!

    Another lovely pattern! Can you tell me about how large this is? About 21″ in circumference? Also, how much of the yarn did you use? Thanks!

    1. Katie says:

      Hi Nancy!
      Great question, thanks!

      This hat is about 21″ circumference, and stretched nicely to fit my head, which is 23.5″, but also fit on my husband (with a grumpy face, lol!) who has closer to a 21.5″ head. I hope that helps! I used just about half the skein.


  2. Angela Puccinelli says:

    Hello! Thank you so much. What a cute pattern. I couldn’t get the coupon code to work. Am I doing something wrong?

    1. Katie says:

      Hi there! I’ve had a few people get mixed up with the spelling, the code for the turban is “Fallfave19”. Try copy pasting just to be sure. I have 3 different ones this month that are just off by one letter, so it’s been confusing for those following the whole blog hop. But I appreciate you guys! (I’m totally a deal hunter, too!)

      Hopefully that fixes the problem!

  3. Adena Tibbs says:

    Hi Katie, I purchased this pattern on Ravelry and have made the body of the hat but for the life of me cannot figure out how to fold it. Not sure what I am doing wrong but I can’t get full closure at the top/crown of the hat. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

    1. Katie says:

      Hi there, Adena,
      Thanks for your comment! I know the twist is a bit tricky, so I’m working on a second sample to make up a quick video tutorial on how to fold and seam it. I’m not finished yet, but in the meantime, here’s one that is really close. My turban is sewn nearly the same way, but I’ve added one more twist, so the ends cross over again in the back. I hope that seeing the visual helps you out! If not, hang in there, help is coming. 🙂


      1. Katie,

        Yes! That helps me a lot 😊. Thank you sooo much ❤. I’m looking forward to your video tutorial when you have it finished ☺.

        Thanks again so much,

        1. Katie says:

          You’re so welcome, Adena! Glad I could help! Hope you enjoy your turban! They’re so fun and easy to make!

          1. Rachel says:

            I’m excited to see your video on it; even with the video above for some reason I just can’t seem to wrap my head around it! 🙂

          2. Katie says:

            Thanks for the comment! It’s coming soon. Don’t worry, we’ll have it wrapped around your head in no time. 😉


  4. You didn’t say whether you are crocheting in the front 3rd loop or the back. I’ve had patterns that were one way or the other. So I’m trying to rotate every other row therefore keeping the V’s all on the same side. But I Would like to know which you did – front or back ?

    1. Hi Debra,

      That’s a good point! To answer your question, I worked into the 3rd loop from the front each time, since it’s in turned rows. That way you get a nice ribbed look. I bet yours looks great too, but it’d be more of a flat knitted look than a ribbing.

      Hope that helps clear it up!
