Knitted Turban Scarf Project

The Knitted Turban Scarf Project is a two cable knitted strip that can be worn as a necklace, doubled as a scarf of worn around your head as a turban (it also kind of looks like a beanie hat).

The cables give this already chunky yarn a great texture.

The perfect gift idea for the fashion-forward loved one.
