Terresa Turban: Crochet Pattern

Terresa Turban, a crochet pattern for sizes Preemie through Adult Large

The Terressa Turban crochet pattern is for you if you enjoy being stylish, or want to hide the fact that your hair has a mind of it’s own this day.

For this particular design, it was inspired by my “Work Mom,” who was experiencing hair loss as her health declined. She was never the fancy type to care a whole lot about her hair, but she didn’t care to walk around with balding spots. As a joke in the office, we referred to her as Queen Terresa, so I made her this turban and found the perfect brooch to add to the center knot. Sadly, Terresa passed March 2018.  

So whether your hair is not cooperating, you want to hide thinning hair, or just be cute, the Terresa Turban crochet pattern is made for you, a friend, the neighbor, and all of the kids.
