I don't know if this would work, but it is just an idea for something that can be a more modern accessory but also can cover one's hair: http://207.58.146.245/index.php/knitone/blog/la_boheme/

The pattern used for that one is out of I.K., but all that is going on is a ring of garter stitch, knit in the round, on very large needles (all the better for making a family's-worth).  You could also accomplish the same result with a rectangle and then sewing the ends together.

That is wonderful! It looks like there is a twist there, or is it just how it's arranged?

Thanks.  There is a bit of a twist to it, like what they call a 'mobius scarf'.  They do it in a very fancy (needlessly complex, if you ask me) way that invovlves casting on just a few stitches on circs then doing some increasing...  The better way to do it, I think, would be flat and then just give it a twist before sewing it into a loop.

This might be too fluffy, but it can be worn as a shawl/capelet or head covering.

Hmm, what kinds of yarns do you think would be the lightest, while stil providing coverage?

Or you could just use circular needles, and give your cast-on row a half-twist before you join and knit into the first stitch. (All the stitches from then on will naturally follow that twist.) Goodness knows, I've done that accidentally enough times when trying to knit a tube!

I ran across this patter which is similar to the one you linked to but thought I'd post it anyways in case you find it useful... http://www.fuzzymabel.com/patterns/fiesta/fy_wrap_mobius.shtml

Karissabissa: Yep, that pattern is pretty much exactly like the one from IK in terms of the finished product.  Same yarn, too (La Boheme). 

If you wanted to make something with a similar look, but more for warmer weather, it would be easy to sub Fiesta's Rayon Boucle which comes in the same colors and everything as La Boheme (and is one of the stands in La Boheme, just without the matching mohair that they strand with it).

O.o I think I'm going to try and be brave, and make some patterns for this myself. Hey, who knows, if I can think up enough maybe I could publish them! XD
