This hat was inspired by art deco designs and vintage fashion trends, particularly the draped turban style hats seen in the 20s–40s (and earlier) and again in the 60s–70s as fashion revivals.

The piece can be worn with the panel front and center, for a truly turban-style look, or with the panel off to the side, or centered in back, for totally different kinds of looks.

You’ll only be working with one color at a time, which makes this knit maybe easier than you might guess; all colorwork is made with slipped stitches paired with cables and twists.

The pattern is written and charted, with a few process photos and detailed technique/construction info. If you need help with cabling without a cable needle, and/or twisted stitches, see the leethalknits.com tutorial pages.

Sizing
There are two different size aspects—height and circumference—with no connection to between the two, so you can make any height in any circumference.

Height is {{short, middle, tall}}, which = approx {{8, 9, 10}} inches / {{20, 23, 25}} cm total; approx {{6, 7, 8}} inches / {{15, 18, 20}} cm up to the crown.
Circumference is {small, medium, large}, which = approx {19, 21, 23} inches / {48, 53, 58} cm.

This hat fits nicely with little to no negative ease (up to about 1 inch / 2.5 cm of negative ease), so for a head size of 22 inches / 56 cm, the medium circumference is a good fit.
