An Extra Fancy Double-knot Turban!

Hi, my name is Rachel and I am a turban-a-holic. No, really, I’m 100% addicted to them and frequently find myself standing in front  of the mirror, experimenting with new scarves and different ways to tie them on. The possibilities are seemingly endless! Despite that fact, lately I had begun to feel a little bored with my usual go-to styles and had been looking for something new. Then, this past Shabbat, I finally found what I was looking for and discovered my favorite turban to date! I had tied similar turbans before, but never thought to layer them in this way. Why oh WHY did it take me so long to try it out?!

With my trusty teal Shiny-licious  and black/white/teal Ombre Sparkle 2 in 1, I got to work, layering them on, tying some knots and tucking the tails. The result was a formal looking wrap that almost looks like a french braid!

I’ve tried it another few times since and each attempt has led to the same smashing results. Any thin scarf will do- even 2 in 1’s! High volume, low volume and everything in between- this wrap has seriously got it going on! If you’re a turban addict like myself, this one is definitely worth giving a go.

 Ombre Sparkle 2 in 1, New York Brights & a duo of Shiny-licious scarves!

 

And… the tutorial! Hope you have fun with this one, ladies!

    • Hi, Liona! Are you doomed? Probably not, but it does take practice! I explain how to bring the tails up a little more thoroughly in this tutorial, so it might be worth watching: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guhCTpR7OkY
      Also, don’t be afraid to rearrange or adjust your tails before you tie the knot. Sometimes, I have to play with them to get them just so, too! Hope that helps!
