You never know when inspiration will hit. I was watching an old movie, really old ,like 1927, titled "The Unknown". A very young Joan Crawford was wearing a side-tied scarf around her head. I fell in love with the look. I re-created a version in crochet. It only takes 2.5 ounces of worsted yarn and an H/5.00 hook. I used Bernat Super Value Yarn from their Ombre line. The color was Fresh Lilac.
This would also make a nice chemo cap if done in a soft organic cotton.

Here is the pattern:

Your welcome! I appreciate the nice words.

It's a quick project that can be made in an evening and it looks really nice when worn.

I love sharing my patterns. I hope you try it soon as it only takes a small amount of yarn to make.
